20th Annual Day - Shirdi Sai Public School, Moradabad, Uttar Pradesh
Shirdi Sai Public School (SSPS) hosted its Annual Day Celebration on October 28, 2023. Commemorating the school's 21st year of educational excellence, a Cultural Program showcased glimpses of the milestones achieved throughout its 20-year journey.
In 2003, Dr. Chandra Bhanu Satpathy Ji laid the foundation stone of this institution, aspiring to establish a center of excellence, promote educational awareness, and illuminate the path of knowledge. With this primary goal in focus, SSPS persists in its pursuit of excellence, and today, after two decades, the institution is celebrating this momentous occasion.
A cultural program marked this special occasion, where the students welcomed the Honorable Chairman, Dr. C.B. Satpathy Ji, with the lively beats of 'Dhol-Tasha' and other musical instruments.
The program initiated with Dr. Satpathy ji lighting the lamp. Students expressed their gratitude to Dr. Satpathy ji and showcased a 'welcome dance' to the 'Guru Prayer' from 'Guru-Bhagwat,' composed by Dr. C.B. Satpathy ji himself. The Principals of both wings presented the 'School report,' emphasizing the achievements and progress of SSPS. The accomplishments were also visually displayed on the screen. The school has not only made a significant impact at the national level but has also garnered recognition at the international level.
The institution received accolades as students actively participated and excelled in various international programs, including Cultural Exchanges in Mauritius, Odisha, and Lucknow.
For the past five years, students securing the 1st position, last year's academic achievers, and those who received accolades at national and international levels were honored. The school's Core team, filled with pride, received the 'Brian O Brain' winner's trophy from Dr. Satpathy ji. SSPS has consistently secured the 1st position in the city for seven consecutive years. Following this recognition, a Musical Ballet unfolded. The portrayal of 'Sai Palki' depicted the entire scene of Shirdi. Students showcased dance performances representing various countries such as South Africa, Bulgaria, Japan, Spain, Mauritius, etc., emphasizing the idea that the entire world is a family, and the school respects the diverse cultures, customs, costumes, and languages. Performances on Punjabi, Karnataka, Rajasthani, and Marathi folk songs showcased India's rich cultural diversity. School students presented a variety of additional activities.
Several distinguished guests from the Indian Armed Forces, IAS, IPS, and Judicial services took part in the event.
In his address, Dr. Satpathy Ji underscored the significance of imagination in one's life, highlighting that the seed of imagination blossoms into the plant of wishes. He expressed that inhibiting a child's imagination is a disservice. A genuine teacher must comprehend the perspective of their students. Constructing a temple is irrelevant if it fails to propagate the message of humanity. According to Dr. Satpathy Ji, one's real deity is their own parents, and gratitude towards them is paramount. He emphasized that, even in Guru Bhagwat, he has composed a prayer dedicated to parents.
