Goodbyes are only for those who love with their eyes. But for those who love with heart and soul, there is no such thing as separation. Lucky are those who have something that makes saying goodbye so hard and one really does not understand the pain and agony unless one goes through it. Students to Chapslee School, Bharari, Shimla, experienced the same as they celebrated their farewell party probably the last day of one’s life where they were the school students as well as given the treatment as adults.
The day was filled with fashion, poetry, games, songs and last but not the least a dance party. Students of class twelfth walked the ramp, showcasing their talent and fashion sense. Winner was chosen after conducting three rounds and by putting their best foot forward Aditya was judged Mr Chapslee and Aarohi Miss Chaplsee. Title of best dressed was bagged by Arushi Sharma.
Great is the art of beginning, but greater is the art of ending was a lesson one learned this time during the prop round as one of the boys presented a wonderful example of being a selfless human. In spite of failing to make it to the second round he stepped up to help his fellow student to perform her dance task that was the crucial factor for her qualifying to next round. What happened after it was her destiny but the little gesture from that kid will always go a long way in her life.
After all the games were over, everyone had a ball as they had a DJ Party. The day concluded with a grand lunch and few nostalgic speeches by the students and the teachers wishing them well for a bright future.
