DAV honours achievers

After hard work, here comes an evening that celebrates all the sweat and toil.

DAV Public School, Bistupur, organised on Wednesday the much-awaited DAV Super Achievers’ Award at Tata Auditorium to recognise talents in academics and entrance exams.

The school had invited S. Srikanth, director of National Metallurgical Laboratory, Jamshedpur, as the chief guest.

Students kick-started the evening with a colourful welcome dance.

Then, DAV principal Pragya Singh read out the school’s annual report and put in her inspiring words as well.

“Today, we’d like to award those who performed well in school, be it in results or the JEE. I always tell my students never to crib about what you don’t have. It is not that somebody in other part of the world is trained better and you are not. Also, don’t blame your parents or school. There should always be a zeal to know more, learn new things,” Singh told students.

The school awarded 47 students who cracked the JEE Advanced and 13 Common Proficiency Test qualifiers.

These apart, the school also recognised 18 students from science and four from commerce who got more than 90 per cent in their CBSE Plus Two board results this year. Thirty students who secured 10 CGPA in Class X were also felicitated.

“We not only honour students but also their super parents, because it is because of them that the youngsters excel in life,” said Singh.

The evening’s cultural highlight was the socially relevant dance drama Chitrangada written by Rabindranath Tagore enacted by students.

Before the closing ceremony, the school choir also presented the song “Ummedon wali dhoop”.
