We celebrated the Shilanyas of our Sports Centre on Thursday, 24 April 2014. It was a thrilling beginning to our hopes and aspirations for the all-round development of our students.
I would like to congratulate our Wonderful Team Tapi – students, teachers, management and parents – on their superb cultural performance, coordination, organisation and support during this auspicious event.
The students were super excited to have Mr. Saurav Ghoshal, India’s Number 1 Squash Champion and World Number 15 as their inspirational Chief Guest.
Shrimati Draupadi Devi Jhunjhunwala, whose blessings and prayers for our well being have supported us from our inception, was here to light the inaugural lamp for us.
It was heartwarming to have with us, Shrimati Lakshmiben, the Sarpanch of Veluk, and her team, the Majhi Sarpanch and the Talati, with whose support our students’ welfare is assured every day at school.
The Cornerstone of DPS Tapi Sports Centre, laid by such lucky and enterprising hands, will provide the strongest possible foundation for our DPS Tapi Sports Centre.
We were fortunate to have with us some special dignitaries on this occasion.
The Principals of almost all DPS Schools in Gujarat came all the way to grace the occasion with their blessings, from DPS Ahmedabad Bopal, DPS Ahmedabad East, DPS Bharuch, DPS Gandhinagar, DPS Rajkot, and Mr. Mukesh, IT Head of DPS RKPuram.
I am especially happy that extremely busy parents left their morning’s work to come down for this ceremony and lend it dignity by their presence.
(But where were the majority of my Team Tapi parents and students? Your presence was missed – especially by me!)
