Varied themes, diverse talents, planning and execution of events, performing on
stage in front of a huge audience are just some of the highlights of the school
day celebration. Identifying talents in students and giving an opportunity to perform
on stage is a challenging task. Teachers work tirelessly with the students and ensure
enthusiastic participation in this gala celebration.
The graduation ceremony refers to receiving a formal degree in the academic career.
In Kumarans, graduation ceremony is celebrated when class X students step into class
XI as class X is considered to be a significant milestone in the students’ academic
journey. Class XII students leave school for different destinations, to pursue their
chosen ambition. Class X and class XII students bid farewell in an elaborate ceremony
marked by special and solemn moments, as they ‘graduate’ to the next level.
School Prefects, Head boy, Head girl, Captains and Vice captains of the four different
houses are elected by students through online voting. The students are formally
introduced to the school during the installation ceremony. Pinning of badges, followed
by taking oaths make the leaders aware of the responsibility they have taken up
for tenure of one year. During this ceremony, the members of the SEEK (Students
Editorial Entity of Kumarans) are also introduced by the teachers. Leaders and SEEK
members wear their special badges throughout the academic year.
In the beginning of every academic year, all the students are encouraged to participate
in the “Literary Fest”. Events and competitions include writing, debating, visual
arts and fine arts. This caters to all skills and interests that children possess.
Based on the performances and preferences, students are encouraged to participate
in similar events offered during inter school fests.
Assembly time is important in any school. Special assemblies give students a chance
to voice out their feelings about any socially relevant topic, to create awareness
among peers on current problems or to just display their talent in music, mime or
speech. The special assemblies are planned activities which are included in the
school’s academic calendar.
