A play on the school life “ Our School Days” was performed .The assembly reached its zenith with the mesmerizing dance performance by the students.

                          Seniors are the mentors of their juniors. They guide them the right way , inspire them in a true sense and become their role models, A special gesture was made by class VI students when they handed over a small token of their love-beautiful handmade bookmarks to their outgoing seniors. The students of class XII were seen overwhelmed with joy and nostalgia.

                          The Principal, Mrs Amita Gupta wished good luck to the students in all their future endeavours in life. 

                          The special assembly came to a close with the thank you speech by the Head Boy and Head Girl on behalf of Class XII students.

                          As the students of class VI said GOODBYE,they reminded themselves that farewells are neither meant forever, nor are they the end. They are simply words to say that everyone in the school will miss them and remember them fondly.

                            The program began on an auspicious note, with lighting of the ceremonial lamp, to dispel darkness and ignorance, and to spread the Almighty’s grace and divine energy. The guests joined in prayer, in hope that The Almighty stays as their compass towards a bright future. 

                            The Citation Ceremony is symbolic of the students’ flight into the undiscovered. They have been trained to never yield to the hardships that life can bring. They have learnt to look at things from a new, higher perspective, to be patient with the present, and be prepared for the immense possibilities that the future holds. 

                            Principal, Mrs Amita Gupta Ma’am extended a warm welcome to the guests and blessed the students for their future endeavours.

She encouraged them to be confident and perform to the best of their abilities. 

                            The cultural program included a lyrical rendition for the students, that no matter what befalls them, they must not quit. Following the group song was a Guru Vandana. It was a thanksgiving from a student to his teacher. This piece was a blend of the Kathak and Bharatnatyam forms.

                            The Class Teachers of Class XII conferred their wishes to the students in the form of citations. The teachers celebrated the incredible journey of TAFSians and talked about their unique experiences at school and their aspirations from life.

                            A presentation titled ‘My World Down The Ages’ followed next. This motion picture was a collection of some very fond memories that our students have gathered along their days at TAFS.

A rich spread of confectionaries, baked by the students of the Home Science Department, was another interesting highlight of the function.

                                YOUNG REPORTERS’ MEET 2019-2020

                                NIE (Newspaper in Education), a Times of India initiative, recently organized the Young Reporters’ Meet. The meet was held on 29 January 2020 at Sri Sathya Sai International Centre, Lodhi Road, New Delhi.

                                Snehil Smriti (XI B) and Tanisha Pal Singh (XI E) attended the meet, representing TAFS as young reporters.

                                An evaluation exam followed by a press conference was the highlight of the meet. The occasion provided the young reporters with a chance to challenge themselves on the aspects of general awareness, writing style, creativity, quality of thought and ability to conceptualize and report.

                                It also provided the young reporters with a forum to voice their opinions and concern. They interacted and shared their views with senior editors of The Times of India and other noteworthy and intellectual personalities.

                                Former Indian Cricketer, Surinder Khanna, renowned psychiatrist, Dr. Sameer Parikh and a teen Aditya who has taken steps towards creating a healthy environment at school were among the chief dignitaries.

                                Issues like role and importance of media in all spheres of life and the duty of being responsible reporters who would remove the veil of ignorance from the reader’s mind formed the topics of discussion

                                The event was quite enriching and a one of its kind experience.

                                  VISIT TO DANBRO BAKERY

                                  Danbro bakery, a bakery outlet from Milan, Italy, serves 40 varieties of bread, waffles, cakes, and cookies along with some delicious Italian dishes. The new Italian boulangerie and patisserie opened its first store in Kailash Colony, Delhi recently. The interior of the bakery is elegant.

                                  NIE members of classes VII, IX, X & XI visited this bakery on 28 & 29 January 2020. The visit not only opened a window into the world of finest baked sweet and savory Italian snacks but also brought the students vis-à-vis the nitty gritty of baking. The students were served with delectable snacks and flavorful appetizers.

                                  A workshop on table manners only added to the charm of the visit. The NIE members were given pointers on how to use various pieces of cutlery while eating, how to behave and the appropriate body language to be adopted while sitting on a table for a meal.

                                   All in all the visit was definitely a grand success.
