The “Dr. Stya Paul Award for Human values” was conferred upon well deserving students - Shradha V. Kumar (VII), Prerna Deep (X) and Vishakha Bhanot (XI). Soul stirring bhajans rendered by the senior school choir and Ram Dhun by tiny tots of the Pre- Primary retained the solemnity and sanctity of this auspicious day. ‘Reflections in Time,’ compiled by Late Dr. Stya Paul, was distributed amongst the students as a befitting tribute to an exemplary visionary.
