Lamp of knowledge illuminates DPS PinjorePosted by anthony on February 5th, 2011
‘May the lamp of knowledge, a symbol of wisdom
Grant us boon of true freedom
Illuminating our hearts and mind
Making us wise, knowledgeable and kind
May it show us the path which is right
Every temptation, so that, we can fight
Emerging victorious with our goal in sight
Knowing the true value of righteousness and its might.
This was the wish of the students as they came to attend the Lamp of knowledge ceremony. Every year when its time for class XII to pass out, Lamp of knowledge ceremony is organized so that the legacy of the institution – the principles, code of conduct, values and wisdom is passed on by the seniors to their immediate juniors of class 11. For, its their turn to shoulder the responsibilities as the senior most class in the school. This year the ceremony was held on January 29, 2011. Class 12 students, each one of them, handed over the beautiful earthen lamps, symbolizing wisdom and knowledge to class XI students who held them with pride and care. The light from the lamps lit the tastefully decorated pandal adding serenity and piousness.
The ceremony began with the lighting of the ceremonial lamp by the Coordinator Dr. Kiran Prabhakar, who later addressed the students on behalf of the Principal urging them to be wise, dedicated, devoted and sincere in whatever task they undertake. She asked the twelfth standard to be cautious and use their discretion to distinguish right from wrong as once out of the school, they will no more be in a protected environment – they will have to behave more responsibly taking the right decision to be successful.
