The programme initiated with a prayer and lighting of the lamp, symbolizing a fresh dawn that spreads the light of wisdom and warmth in our hearts. This was followed by a brief welcome assembly presented by the teachers and the Principal’s address.
Ms. Anjna Sahi, the Principal, focused on the child- centric ideology being followed at DPGA in her address to the parents.
