Jan. 13, 2023 was marked by all students of Nazareth Vidya Niketan, Chatra, as they were geared toward the Science Exhibition for this academic year. There was excitement and enthusiasm on the face of everyone present and in the air.
The Chief Guest, Mr. Braj Kishore Tiwary, District Council Vice President of Chatra, and Guest of Honor, Mr. Avinash Kumar, Sub-Divisional Policy Officer of Chatra, arrived to the campus and were welcomed and escorted by the Principal Grace Xalxo, SCN, and the staff, Mr. Satish Kumar. The drum began to give rhythmic movement to the traditional welcome dance by the school students accompanying everyone to the school hall for a short prayer, welcome dance and felicitation of the guests. The hall was packed with the presence of the parents of 11th grade/ (+2 ) students who were eagerly waiting to receive their ranks. Immediately after this was the inauguration of the Science Exhibition. The students explained their innovation clearly, with much confidence, and shared their knowledge to every question asked by the judges.
The chief guest being a science teacher himself before the present designation, made clear to all in his speech the difference between invention and discovery and encouraged the students to continue their search for new inventions.
The day prolonged till the end with the same zeal and energy among the staff and the students. Those who took the most advantage of the day were the students of Nazareth School, English medium, and the parents of the NVN Hindi medium school.
Education, with its emphasis on experimentation and practicality, gave sense to the students who exhibited their engineering knowledge and medical use of natural resources such as seeds, leaves, roots, plants and flowers. It truly was not only educative but also an opportunity to build up their confidence and encouragement in utilizing their knowledge in daily life.
Congratulations and kudos to all the members of the NVN family.
