“Goodbye always makes my throat hurt.” said Charlie Brown, and on March 31, 2021, we realised the truth behind that as we gathered to bid adieu to two of our teachers–Mrs Amrita Kaul, and Mrs Nilofer Masih on their superannuation. Goodbyes are always emotional, and saying it twice over made it all the more difficult.
Both teachers have been with the school for over two decades and the memories, and feelings of the staff members spilled over in emotional speeches, songs and dance performances.
Ms Lovey Singh, as Staff Secretary, guided the celebration of the lives of our beloved teachers through prayers from the Bible, the Guru Granth Sahib, and the Geeta. Mr Wingmang Chwang then led the staff through a prayer song.
He was accompanied by Ms Meenu and Ms Manisha in a beautiful medley of songs of farewell, which left many teary eyed.
This was followed by a blessing song by all the Sisters.
Sister Supreeta, the Principal, gave a heartfelt speech of gratitude for all the contributions made by Amrita ma’am and Nilofer ma’am. They were also presented with silver salvers to commemorate their years of service to the school.
The function ended with emotional speeches by both teachers:
Dan Wilson, in his popular song wrote, “Every new beginning comes from some other beginning’s end.” We wish these two teachers the very best for the new phase of their lives.
