Jamshedpur, Dec. 16: Unlike previous plus two batches, the plus two batch of 2016 – 17 chose to make their exit on the last day 16th December 2016 with a difference. A difference that would linger for the rest of their life.
The students of the batch on this occasion sponsored Sheikh Imran, a student of class VIII for two successive years. Imran, a Std 8 boy was transferred from KPS INCAB because of his remarkable performance and his passion for knowledge. Imran’s father a wall painter just manages to earn his bread. The plus two students zeroed on Imran and chose to sponsor his education.
This step was taken by the batch as a trendsetter to make a difference and showcase true youth power and also set a trend for the upcoming batches in making the celebration.
A cheque of Rs. 10,000 was handed over to Sheikh Kabul, Imran’s father in the presence of Sharat Chandran, Director, Kerala Public Schools and Harmit Pal, Vice Principal, KPS Kadma.
Imran was overwhelmed by the gesture and broke into tears and sang – “tujh me rab dikhta hai…..”
The students and teachers all went moist.
Apart from this they also felicitated the teachers of the afternoon project school for their relentless support and valuable contribution. The teachers felicitated were Ms. Gopa Mandal, Ms. Lakshmi Yadav, Ms. Purbi Roy, Ms. S.M Anuradha and Ms. Sunita Mohanty.
The batch addressed the gathering and urged the students to always exit school royally and to touch everyone’s life. They also delivered speeches and some students recollected anecdotes from the school life. They also put up song and dance performance. The day ended with a new beginning.
First time in the history of Jamshedpur schools, an outgoing batch of plus two left with a celebration never done before.
