A special online assembly was held for the entire school on April 7 to celebrate the Founder’s Day . The school has completed 90 years.
The assembly started with Rabindranath Tagore’s Anondo Loke, a favourite prayer of our reverend founder. Mr. Vikram Roy (his maternal grandson) spoke to the children and shared his childhood memories with him. This was followed by Aakash Bhaiya making a lively musical offering Saathi Haath Baddhana. Chaman Bhaiya, who spent a good many years working under Mr. Deb in close association, spoke very fondly about him highlighting the affection, guidance and motivation he got from him. A video compilation from earlier years showing students paying homage and offering their tribute to the founder, made us all go emotional and nostalgic. The assembly ended with a musical production titled ‘We Shall Overcome’ launched by the school on YouTube last year. The video shows a few of our teachers singing the song in English, Hindi and Bengali.
