The Valedictory Assembly was held on 14th February 2020. The customary Sanskrit and English prayers were read out. The Principal, Dr Madhav Deo Saraswat addressed the gathering. He said that he was of the opinion that “neither anybody teaches nor you are taught”. He opined that it is only that the adults have experiences and try to share those experiences with the boys. He also told them that the experience of just living on the Fort has enriched all of them. Time has come to enrich and strengthen the legacy of their alma mater. The Senior School Prefect, Aditya Parashar came to the dais and gave his heartfelt thanks to the school community for moulding them, from the ‘unsure boys of yesterday’ to the ‘men of tomorrow’. The entire Shukla Memorial Open Air Theatre reverberated with applause. The tradition of lighting the candle was performed which symbolizes that our boys will carry the light of knowledge out into the world. The boys of Class XII were greeted by The Scindia School Brass Band with the tunes of ‘Kabhi alvida na kehna’ as they led out of the OAT. The event culminated with dinner at the Principal’s residence.
