Farewell Ceremony – Mr Devendra, PGT Commerce
One of our most senior teachers, Mr. Devendra, PGT Commerce, retired from service on 30th April 2019 after a long and distinguished tenure of almost 30 years in the school. He was bid a warm farewell at a special programme organised for him by the students and teachers. The Principal, teachers, students and former students paid glowing tributes to his dedication to teaching and his versatile talents. His colleagues spoke highly of Mr. Devendra’s interests in diverse fields, particularly his contrasting accomplishments as an artist and an accountant. Former student, Ms. Prerna Jain (Session………….) recalled the interest Mr. Devendra could infuse in his lectures by relating topics to real- life situations.
The students of Classes XI and XII enthralled all present by presenting a medley of songs. The highlight of the programme was a portrait of Mr. Devendra, drawn on-the-spot by Samridhi Uniyal of Class XII A. Mr. Devendra, in his farewell address, encouraged teachers and students to become avid readers. The Principal, Ms. Esther Mani, praised his integrity and dedication towards his profession. A proficient artist and a voracious reader, Mr. Devendra will be remembered for his succinct and accurate observations on current issues that constantly found reflection in his Business Studies classes.
