Lakshmipat Singhania Academy celebrated its 26th Founder's Day virtually on Friday, December 10, 2021. The school’s Head Girl Saanvi Nagar compered the show. The program opened with a beautiful welcome song, which was performed by the school choir that symbolized how the academy and its students stand out.
This was followed by the invocation and the lighting of the lamp to mark the auspicious beginning of the ceremony; after which, the Director, Meena Kak Ma’am addressed the audience. In her speech, Ma’am said, “the students of LSA have been donning the cap of responsibility and integrity successfully and have been displaying a great sense of dedication towards different causes.” Following this, she enumerated some of the achievements of the academy at national and international levels. She remarked about the need of becoming self-sufficient, saying, “Let them (students) learn to change their challenges into opportunities as the pandemic has taught them”.
Next, the school’s Vice Principal, Jaya Misra Ma’am presented the illustrious annual report of the school.
Moving further, Shri Bharat Hari Singhania, Chairman of the Lakshmipat Singhania Education Foundation greeted the audience. “We at LSA encourage the students to come out of their cocoons and explore all possibilities to discover their true potential and groom them to have a global vision while still being conscious of our country’s realities,” said Shri Singhania, leaving the audience inspired and motivated.
Next, the Chief Guest of the event, Dr. Anupam Basu, who is presently the Director of National Institute of Technology, Durgapur, was asked to share a few words of wisdom. In his address, he stated, "the Anandam (as Tagore put it) lies inside; study, read, mix with others, and engage." He also discussed the importance of ethics, saying, "In today's nation, ethics is gradually taking a back seat due to the mindless pursuit of more." He concluded by encouraging students to commit themselves against unethical practices.
Subsequently, a Prize Distribution ceremony took place wherein students who had achieved excellence in curricular as well as co-curricular activities were felicitated.
Following this, the much awaited Cultural Program began titled ‘Looking Back & Beyond’. In the presentation we realize that life is a beautiful journey. As we find our road through life, we all require guidance and inspiration. This Founder’s Day, the LSA family tracks the 25 year journey of Lakshmipat Singhania Academy – an institution that has provided the necessary guidance and inspiration to many young minds. Over the last twenty five years, students have stopped here, met, learnt, shared and loved. The Founder’s Day endeavour presented all the glories and memories, advancements and innovations that has made LSA what it is today.
A group of ex-students participate in a reunion hosted at their beloved alma mater.
