FAREWELL CLASS XII

May 15, 2022

“May the wind under your wings, bear you where the sun sails and the moon walks.”

The end of the academic year is a time for joy and sorrow. Excitement is in the air as the students are promoted to a new class, however, it’s also the time to bid farewell to the outgoing students of class XII. At Col Brown School a farewell party was organized on 14th May, 2022. The Bursar Garden was beautifully decorated for the evening. The students were smartly dressed in their formals. There was no doubt that once they walk out of the portals of their Alma Mater they will be ready to take on the new challenges in life.

At school, amidst the peals of laughter time passes quickly from one class to the other. Without realizing, students imbibe values, knowledge and build relationships. The first lessons of life are learnt here. And then comes the time to bid adieu. By now the students are well groomed, confident and set to march on the path of success.

The evening was fun filled. The students danced to their hearts’ content. The highlight of the evening was when mementoes were given to the students along with apt titles and name-tags. Some of them were:

Best Sportsman- Kartik Saini

Best Student of the Year- Hansika Rawat

Gentleman of the Year- Ruskin Gill

Mr. Talented- Akhil Khan

Best Entertainer- Paras Sharma

Best Dressed- Ditya Raj Singh

The evening ended on an emotional note as the students will soon depart from their ‘second home’. We wish you success in life and may the foundation of your formative years keep you in good stead. Be strong, be wise and have the ability to discern the right from the wrong. Be honest, respectful and courteous and there will be no looking back. Col Brown will always be your second home and we will cherish your stay here.

“May the road rise up to meet you, may the wind be ever at your back. May the sun shine warm upon your face and the rain fall softly on your fields. And until we meet again, may God hold you in the hollow of his hand.”

SAY IT WITH MUSIC

May 13, 2022

“The world is a stage, the stage is a world of entertainment.”

The stage was all set at Col Brown School, on the evening of May 12th,2022. The students were waiting in awe to spend the evening at Tamarind Theatre to witness an exhilarating, entertainment show.
The students of class XII took time out from their busy schedule with the ongoing board exams, to entertain the students before the school wrapped up for the summer vacation.
The programme was envisioned and executed entirely by the students. In fact, it came as a pleasant surprise for the members of the staff too!
The students presented a string of melodious songs, solo, duet and a group song. From the rendition of a sufi song to a popular Punjabi, urban song, ‘Insane’. The tiny tots stole the heart of the audience with their charming performance, ‘The Butterfly song’. The other popular numbers were ‘Yaar modd do’ and ‘Chaand baaliyaan’. Each performance was par excellence.
The last performance of the evening was a skit ‘Causes of increasing violence in today’s generation.’ The skit depicted how the youth today gets easily influenced, especially by movies. The underlying message was that we should use our intelligence to extract the good and discard the bad. The skit was written and directed by Akhil Khan.
The audience was mesmerised by the entire programme. The smiles, tapping of feet and cheering said it all! Three cheers for our talented students!

GOOD LUCK PARTY

May 9, 2022

To seek the blessings of their teachers, the students of class X organize a good luck party each year. At Col Brown this is a tradition that has been carried out for years. This year the party was scheduled for 7th May, 2022. Although it was in the midst of the exams, it was an event that was much awaited. In fact it was a great stress buster.

The party was organized perfectly by the students. Every aspect was kept in mind, great ambience, delicious food, rocking music and a cordial welcome. The evening was well spent as it was enjoyable for both the staff and the students.

Our students are our pride and we wish them luck in all their endeavours. Examinations are not the only yardstick to measure success in life. It’s the overall personality developed at school that decides the future of the child. However, examinations do help to realize that we need to face such challenges in all walks of life.

Students, take pride in how far you have come, and have faith in how far you can go. May each day renew your hopes and enthusiasm to explore new aspects of life! Good luck!

INVESTITURE CEREMONY

May 3, 2022

“Leadership is the challenge to be more than average”

Jim Rohn

To inculcate the leadership qualities in students and to give them a feel of being an important and integral part of the administrative body, ‘Student Council’ is formed every year.

Col. Brown Cambridge School held the investiture ceremony on 2nd May, 2022 with great fervour. It was the occasion where the young students were all prepared to don the mantle of leadership and discharge the responsibilities entrusted to them by the school. These students are resilient, responsible and ready to take on new challenges. They have the ability to turn challenging situations into opportunities to learn new ways of working.

Due to the pandemic, the ceremony was held late but the enthusiasm was no less.

The Captains for the academic year 2021-22 are:

HOUSE CAPTAIN PREFECT
Bursar Kartik Saini Mohd Ariz
Headmaster Yuvraj Singh Tomar Raj Aryan Tiwari
Principal Ruskin Gill Piyush Gupta

 

The Student Council with their heads held high, came forward, as their Housemasters

Mr Anil Sharma (Bursar), Mr Ajay Thapa (Headmaster) and Mr Ravi Chauhan (Principal) pinned the badges on them.

The ceremony was presided by the Headmaster of the school, Mr S.Tyagi, who applauded the efforts of the student council and how they are constantly making an endeavour to take their house to a greater level.

EARTH DAY

April 22, 2022

We celebrate Earth Day on 22nd of April every year. Earth Day marks the anniversary of the birth of the Modern Environmental Movement that began in 1970.

The first Earth Day led to the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Earth Day became global in 1990, mobilizing 200 million people in 141 countries and highlighting environmental issues around the world.

Today, Earth Day is widely recognized around the world as a day of action to bring awareness about the environment and bring changes in our behaviour towards the environment.

The students of Col. Brown Cambridge School celebrated the day with much gusto. The senior students enlightened everyone why the day was initiated and what our responsibility is towards saving our ‘Mother Earth’. The children of the primary school sang a beautiful song on ‘Save the Earth’ and represented the earth by wearing beautiful headbands. Posters and banners were displayed all over the campus. We, at CBS, take on our responsibility seriously and so we have a beautiful campus that preserves its natural environment.

However, as citizens of the world certain points need to be pondered upon. People all over the world take a pledge on Earth Day to preserve the environment. No sooner is the day over than the commitments fade away. We see trees being felled for the purpose of construction. The Earth is being plundered. The time has come for us to sensitize ourselves. Mother Earth is bleeding! Bleeding at the thought of its inhabitants crossing swords. Can the environment be preserved if we are at war? Let us adopt a policy of peace! Let us come together as one peaceful family. If there is peace the environment will flourish and our pledge taken on this day will become meaningful.

Career Counselling Workshop

April 15, 2022

A career counselling workshop was held at 12 noon on 14th April 2022 for classes XI and XII. The workshop was conducted by Ms. Saema Jain and Mr. Vinik Jain.

One of the aims of the workshop was to make students realise that very few children know the exact profession they would like to pursue. And for most others, more time to research and explore is required; and this is normal. The important thing is to acquire the prerequisite tools to make an informed decision.

The resource persons are judicial officers in Delhi. They particularly focused on the career options in the field of law: practice, corporate and judiciary. They also elaborated on the importance of law in the day to day life apart from career opportunities the study of law provides.

SPLASH

April 15, 2022

“Happiness is all about making your waves.”

With Summer setting in early this year, the much-awaited activity at Col. Brown Cambridge School- swimming was resumed from 12th April,2022. The students were so excited that they could hardly contain their happiness.

The excitement could be heard in the form of shouting and cheering. Actually, it was an echo of their uncontrollable joy. At other times this noise would have been jarring, but it was music to the ears, as it was a realization that the students were finally back after almost two years!

Swimming is perhaps a favourite sport for all the students. Keeping this in mind long hours have been allotted for swimming in the curriculum. It is the time when each and every student sheds all inhibitions and dives into the pool -taking to the water like a fish!

LESS PLASTIC, MORE LIFE

April 9, 2022

The use of plastic has become irreplaceable in most homes, as it is cheap, light weight, strong and resistant to corrosion. It is used in some form or the other – packaging, polybags, medical use and household goods. However, only a few realize that it is hazardous and pollutes land, water and air. The reckless dumping of plastic poses a significant threat to the environment, mankind, wildlife and aquatic life as it is not biodegradable. We are aware of all these facts, yet we turn a blind eye to it. We need to be responsible and take up the issue of saying ‘NO’ to the use of plastic.

We at Col. Brown Cambridge School take on this responsibility seriously and contribute towards the protection of the environment. There is minimal use of plastic on the campus. We have our own composting plant and we recycle all the waste. However, we cannot limit our share of consciousness to our campus. We must spread awareness and motivate others to minimize the use of plastic and also follow the correct way of disposal of plastic.

The ‘Plastic Mukt Abhiyan’ of Dehradun Nigam is a student and school centric awareness, segregation and recycling programme. It is being enthusiastically promoted in all schools to create a social responsibility among students who in turn will educate society at large. On 8th April, 2022 Mr. Anoop Nautiyal who is the Founder of SDC (Social Development for Community) addressed our students about this programme and the issue of plastic pollution. He spoke about the increasing threat of plastic to the present and future generations. He explained to the students how they could be the saviors of the environment by joining the programme hosted by the Nagar Nigam.

Mr. Nautiyal applauded the efforts of the Brownians in their endeavour to protect the environment. But, the show must go on. The passion for preserving our environment must not die down. Let us wipe out pollution before it wipes us out!

Mr. Anoop Nautiyal a social activist and worker mentioned this about Col. Brown School after his talk on Plastic Mukt abhiyan

“Knock on wood, we are blessed to be having many big schools and central government offices in Dehradun. Their campuses provide succor and relief from pollution and heat. Was at 96 year Old Col Brown School today in Dehradun and could not help but get mesmerized with greenery all around”
