The Chief Guest in her keynote address expressed that she was overwhelmed to be a part of the programme and congratulated the students for the welcome dance and the prayer song. She spoke about her success story and said that her path was clear but not easy, and she learnt from her failures which were her stepping stone to success because she cherished her failures as much as her success. She communicated to the students to be determined and focused in life and not to fall for social media. She congratulated the toppers and achievers for their marvellous performance.

This was followed by the awarding ceremony of students who scored 90% and above in class X. Shreevaishnavi N of class X shared her experience.
