Shanti Bhavan bids farewell to the 2016 graduating class
Result from the national board examinations have come in for the 10th and 12th graders and all of them have passed with First Class! Even more exciting is that every student except for one achieved Distinction in 10th grade and more than 60% of our 12th graders achieved Distinction. Yash Bajpai got the highest with 92%.
We bid tearful farewells to the graduating class. They are placed in two colleges (Christ University and St Josephs College of Commerce) this year, except for Anushya who has joined St. Johns College of Nursing. She is also doing her entrance exams for Medicine and if she get through will be joining medicine. Because of the Supreme Court ruling barring private colleges and universities from holding entrance exams for medical and dental courses, she will not be able to appear for the 3 other tests she applied for. As a backup she will do B.Sc Nursing.
On June 5th, we had a lovely Graduation ceremony. One of our special guests of honor was Ms. Andrea Christ, Vice Consul General of Germany. She brought her 3 children and gave a lovely speech. We had guests from - Mercedes Benz, GERB, Xaviers Institute of Entrepreneurship and Management, and Christ University.
