Mixed emotions and a fond farewell

Mixed emotions and a fond farewell

Nostalgic thoughts

A graduation ceremony was recently held at Baldwin Women’s Methodist College

Baldwin Women’s Methodist College clearly believes in sending off its students in style — amply illustrated by the graduation ceremony recently hosted for the outgoing batch of students. The occasion was filled with fun, music and its fair share of nostalgia as well.

The graduating students formed quite a picture, elegantly dressed in white saris. The event began with the college choir, which struck a few notes which impressed all those who had gathered there. Pearl Anita led the service with an opening prayer, after which the choir belted out the college hymn.

They also serenaded the guests with a few special songs to welcome them to the occasion. The chief guest for the event was Reverend Arun Andrews.

The outgoing students of the college seized this opportunity to interact with each other and their teachers, and also share some of their memories from their years on campus.

One of the students, Julie Rana, a third-year BA student, said that she would miss her days in college, and added that she had discovered much of her potential in the last few years. The president of the college’s student union, Rachel S Raynold, then handed over her office with a lot of gratitude, and shared some anecdotes of life in the president’s chair, to the students’ delight.

Poonam Bhatia, a faculty member, also addressed the students and wished them the best for their future endeavours.

After this, students who had excelled or proved their mettle in various fields were given their share of the limelight — they were honoured with certificates and trophies by the chief guest as well as the principal of the college. The choir then lapsed into the congregational hymn, after which the students lit candles. The prayer of commitment was led by Sabrina, a third-year BBM student.

The service ended with a closing prayer, after which the graduating batch left their alma mater with mixed feelings.
