Time to big adieu to Grade 12

It was the beginning of the week-long farewell. The students of Grade 12 geared themselves up for the festivities of the week that would finally see them off on their next adventures.

Tuesday, the 3rd of April marked Gratitude Day, a day dedicated to those teachers, mentors and people in the students’ lives who had contributed to their achievements. The day solely ran on student-initiative.

The lunch was held in Sunderbans, which was festooned with balloons and banners. The teachers, as guests, were welcomed with a rose and a smile. The soft music set the tone for the afternoon as nostalgic and affectionate. The floor was open to all for loving speeches, wistful anecdotes and heart-felt tributes. A cake was cut in the day’s celebration, as well as for the birthday of a Maths teacher, Mr. Sanidhya. There was much hustle and bustle as students and teachers alike clamoured to get their photographs clicked together, at the Clicking Club stall.

The event spoke of remembrances, those between students and teachers that would stay with them both throughout their lives.

Wednesday, the 4th of April was Scribble Day – when the students of Grade 12 penned parting messages onto each other’s school t-shirts. The senior school building swarmed with students clamoring for markers to write notes of thanks and affection. The day ended with a artfully organised, aerial photograph of the Pathways Panthers 2018.

Ex Pathwaysian authors a fictional book on the parallel universe

Simmy Kors (real name: Simran Uppal), is a former student of Pathways World School, Aravali.  She left the School when she was in Grade 6 since the family had to move to Dubai.  At the mere age of 17, Simmy, a Grade 11 Student has become a debut author of “The Zenas Cure”.  On 22nd March she released her debut novel at the hands of Patricia Sethi Pereira, an international journalist and in the presence of Prasad Pankar, in Panjim.  The novel has already been sold out twice.

Simmy Kors has been traveling around India for the publicity of her novel, giving interviews, a guest speaker at various events, literary festival etc.

In her book, Simmy has created the realm of Kedar, a universe parallel to our own, that exists on the other side of the mirror. In Kedar, every individual is born with milk-white eyes, with no irises. At the age of five, they develop an iris colour based on their leading attributes, which, in turn, determines a lot of things. Offering a synopsis of the book, Simmy explains, “Beware of Kedar! The parallel universe that exists on the other side of the mirror, a world where people are divided by the colour of their eyes and the powers that come with it.

On Monday, 2nd of April, Simmy visited the School to address a select group of students of Grades 7, 8, 9 and 11.  In a 45 minutes session held in the School Auditorium,
