Towards a New Beginning

Monday, February 20, 2017

“Education should be for the flowering of personality but not for the suppression of creativity or natural skill”.

Indian Learners Own Academy accorded a grand farewell to the outgoing students of class 12, 2016-17 batch, on Wednesday, 8thFebruary, 2017. Dr. V. Binumon, Principal of ICSK (Senior) was the Chief Guest for the occasion. Mr. D.K. Sharma, the Chairman of LOA was also present on the occasion.



It was indeed a memorable day as 18 young graduates of LOA, adorned in their graduation gowns and caps got set to enter a new stage of life.



The graduation ceremony began with the invocation of the Almighty followed by the dazzling tunes of patriotism and diligence both to motherland India and to Kuwait. The invocation of the divine, by lighting the ceremonial lamp, filled the atmosphere with serenity and solemnity appropriate to the occasion.



Principal of LOA, Mrs. Asha Sharma welcomed the dignitaries, teachers, parents and the students of class 12. She expressed her sincere appreciation and gratitude to all the guests for their gracious presence on the solemn occasion. In her welcome speech, the Principal advised the students to set the sky as the limit and to be enterprising enough to attune to the winds of change to be successful in life.



‘Swagatam’, a semi-classical dance performance by the students of LOA mesmerized the audience to its core. The ensembles of LOA set the stage on fire with a live band performance that enthralled the audience. The choir group of LOA rendered a melodious prayer song.

Nostalgia rained in as student representatives shared their reminiscences of school life. Sweet and bitter memories shared in the tanginess of tears of separation, left the audience emotional.

The much awaited grand event of the day was the presentation of mementoes to the students. With hopes, expectations, aspirations and a sense of pride, each one of the graduates walked on to the stage to accept the honour of their first graduation from the dignitaries present.

A beautiful rendition of the song “You Raise Me Up” by Sarah Elsa and Runa Akhter captivated the audience leaving them spellbound. A self-composed poem in Hindi was rendered by Mrs. Madhuri Jha. A stupendous and fantabulous choir performance by the teachers showered their abundant blessings on all the students of Class 12.

The Chief Guest Dr. V. Binumon in his address to the graduates said, “Graduation Day was a day with a lot of difference”. He marvelled at the speeches rendered by the students and pointed out one important message i.e. “Do not quit. Do not give up in life”. He spoke about gratitude and happiness as the two essential elements that are needed in one’s life.

He said that if one wanted to achieve success in life, it was very necessary to express gratitude to all those who helped in shaping their personality and moulding them into role models for life. He further added that one should not pursue happiness but instead let happiness pursue you. “Grow with a difference.

Make a difference in your life. That difference will add beauty to your life”. With these words, he concluded his speech and blessed the students wishing them good luck and success in their future life.

The Head boy Shaikh Aymen and Head Girl Merin Maliyeckel proposed the vote of thanks.

The ceremony concluded as the young graduates of the day then moved out of the auditorium through a corridor of blessing, ready to step out of school and face the outside world.
