Among them was Apeejay School, Faridabad Sector 15, which prepared a special assembly to mark a “day of gratitude”. The celebration began with a floral tribute by principal Anita Yadav. Students, on the other hand, paid their respect by singing soulful bhajans. Some of them also presented dance numbers on the theme ‘Soaring High is My Nature’, which is Apeejay’s motto.

The audience was shown a movie depicting the inspiring life journey of late Dr Paul. Further, the recipients of the Dr Stya Paul Award for Human Values 2022 were also announced. The award is conferred on students for imbibing core human values and diligently practising the same in their lives through actions, behaviour, and conduct.

The school principal read out a heartfelt message on behalf of the current chairperson of Apeejay Education Society Mrs Sushma Paul Berlia. In her speech, she highlighted how her father, who had a humble beginning, achieved success with the help of his valuable qualities like hard work, fearlessness and love for truth which stood him in good stead.

At Apeejay Svran Global School, Sector 21D, Faridabad, the students participated in a similar celebration where they sang the late founder’s favourite bhajans and presented dance performances. The event began with a mellifluous rendition of Ganesh Vandana, followed by a floral tribute.
