The Valedictory Assembly was held at the Open Air Theatre on 19 March 2022. The Scindian community gathered to bid a warm farewell to the Batch of 2022. The solemn occasion started with the customary Sanskrit and English prayer. The Principal, Dr Madhav Deo Saraswat in his heartwarming speech reminded the students of the outgoing batch of the higher purpose of education; which is to contribute towards the community one is a part of and to be kind to all living beings. He urged them to take each experience of their life as an opportunity to learn, as it would help them to become a better individual. This was followed by the speech of the Senior School Prefect, Ujjwal Mehrotra who had everybody in splits through the humorous snippets about each of his batch-mates. He also reminisced about the journey of his Batch and their transformation from shy diffident kids to confident gentlemen ready to take on the world. This was followed by an emotional presentation capturing the glimpses of their momentous journey at the Fort. After this the students walked out of the SMOAT with lighted candles in their hands, a symbolic ceremony which marks the carrying forward of the light of knowledge to the world as true ambassadors of the Scindian legacy. The evening came to an end with a sumptuous dinner at the Swimming Pool and presentation of mementos.
