St. Augustine’s Day School, Barrackpore
The Felicitation Ceremony for ICSE and ISC toppers and one-pointers of 2023 was organised by St. Augustine’s Day School, Barrackpore at Ichapur, from 5 o’clock in the evening. The endeavour was enlightened by prayer and by the presence of all members of a milestone journey – the achievers, the parents and the teachers.
The mood was lifted with the remembrance of late Mr. C.R. Gasper, the founder of St. Augustine’s Day School. Mrs. J. Biswas, the Principal showered petals on his picture which was followed by “Wavin’ Flag” and “Jai Ho! “ in the melodious voice of the choir that set the tone of the programme.
Soon after, the felicitation of one-pointers from the ICSE batch started and the excited and expectant faces shone brightly on the stage. Ankita Karmakar was brought up on the stage with her mother to receive the appreciation as 2023’s ICSE topper.
The “endless number of candidates” was all the more justified when the song “Unstoppable” was performed by Adrija Ghosh and Aishee Sengupta – “I’m Unstoppable, I’m a Porsche with no brakes”.
The Chief Guest, Dr. Kunal Sarkar, Vice Chancellor made his presence on the stage and left with a few words which served as woods to spiritual fire.

Very soon the toppers rose up – the school toppers, Saptarshi Mandal and Sruti Rajak, the commerce stream toppers, Ritam Ghosh and Ronit Ghosh.
