Fun and frolic cast a spell on the sprightly students of Atmiya Vidya Mandir as this weekend brought them two reasons to celebrate, first the welcome party for the newcomers and second, the results of student council elections. The welcome party was organized to lift the spirit of new students and to give them a chance to get along with everybody. The results of the student council elections which were generated by electronic voting system were to be declared in the same evening.
The party started with lighting the lamp and invoking God’s blessing. The 11th Std students kicked off the programme with a dazzling show of skill and fun. It was an awe-inspiring scene on the stage (the basketball ground) as the boys performed daredevil stunts on bikes. After this, Singers and vocalists took over to delight every one with their mesmerizing symphony. The students thrilled to bits as 10th Std boys presented a comedy show with a flair and verve which was infectious.
The excitement of the evening continued as the results of the elections of student council were declared. Amidst lots of cheer and applaud, the Principal Swayam Madam announced the results which are as follows: Out of three competitive nominees from 11th Std for the post of Head boy, students voted for Sarthak Jariwala who is the best in academics as well as in extracurricular activities. Amongst three other nominees for the post of Vice Head Boy, Yash Pacchigar proved to be most popular as he received maximum votes. For the yet another significant post of student council, that is Sports Captain, Vikas Patel bagged the support of more students as he was elected Sports Captain. The Cultural in-charge and Co-ordinator Rupashree Asthana explained some guidelines for the newly elected leaders of student council.
At the end, the thrill among the students knew no bounds when students of Std 8th and 9th delighted everybody with their power packed performance on some dance numbers which were very well choreographed. As the background score reached a crescendo, audience joined the dancers on the stage and everybody danced with rapture. By this time, old and new mingled very well and the students were so much charmed that one can hardly identify newcomers in the dancing crowd.
