A day earmarked in the school calendar as a special day, a day the students took centre stage, a day the faculty experienced a feelings of pride and a day that will forever be etched in the collective consciousness of the school as covering yet another milestone in this beautiful journey of togetherness. It was the most awaited moment, Valedictory Function of the year 2019-20 in Velammal Vidyalaya, Alapakkam.
Walking down the aisle in all their splendour with their heads held high, the students took their much coveted places. The ceremony began with a solemn music that ushered them and set the tone for the rest of the day. The symbolic lighting of the lamp by the Chief Guest, Mrs. Sailaja Ramakrishna, Musicologist and the Vice Principal, took on an added significance, as did the invocation that followed. The Vice Principal then wished the students to make giant contributions to the society.
More blessings followed in the form of the inspiring speech by the Chief Guest. She advised the students to pursue a goal and to strive to make a difference in this world. The students had their moment of glory as they proudly walked up on the stage to receive their prizes. Following the prize distribution session, for all the scholastic and non- scholastic achievers, there was a soulful performance on a special song by the Choir. The colourful dance performance by the students was eye-treating. The memorable function drew to a close with the school anthem ‘BORN TO WIN' which envisioned the students’ achievements in their further commitments.
