- The Class of 2015, the passing out batch of Class 12, were given a warm farewell by the School on 14 Feb (Sat) in the School premises. Class 11 deserves credit for organizing an elaborate and well orchestrated function for the outgoing class, consisting of 128 students. The programme commenced with screening of an audio visual film, reminiscing the time gone past, laying out moments spent in the hostels, in the games field and in the classrooms. There have been many joyous moments, there have been moments when students had to toil extremely hard and there have been moments when victories made them forget hard times they had to undergo to achieve their aims. The Founder & Principal, Dr NK Dutta and the Secretary, Mrs Nandini Dutta, both wished all students good luck and best wishes for their future endeavours. The Principal, in his speech, recollected how some of the students had joined the School when the School itself was shifting and settling down in new environs and these students showed grit and determination in going through the rough weather along with the School. They literally grew up with the School. He honoured 22 such students on the stage. Later a colourful cultural programme was rolled out by students which had nothing less than a dozen vibrating items lined up. Each song. dance or skit was performed by children with zeal and skill. All students of Class 12 were presented with a navy blue track suit each with 'BRONSONIAN' emblazoned across its back. Very moving speeches were given by Mr K Sonar, Head of Boarding, Ms Priyanka Devi, HM Subansiri House, and some of the students of the outgoing batch. Himshekhar Konwar, the former Head Boy of MBRS delivered an emotionally charged speech, recollecting old moments. He said, "When I came to the School, I was just a little baby and was treated like one. The Principal and Secretary Ma'am used to personally wake us up in the morning for PT." He recounted many incidents where they had fun but were also admonished by the School authorities. He further added, "We hated the high decibel, shrilling sound of the morning bell and gave many an apology letters for having violated the rules but all that will now be missed by us. MBRS has given so much to us, we will remain grateful to the Principal and Secretary Ma'am and the entire staff for shaping up our lives." Diksha Duarah, the former Head Girl of MBRS, became so nostalgic that her voice took a different tone when she spoke these words, "MBRS has always been my second home ever since I joined this prestigious School in Class 1. I was six years old then. The School gave me all the love and support I needed to grow well. I would miss my teachers, friends, juniors and my Basketball and Volleyball teammates. You can call me a true product of MBRS!" Ranjay Bezbaruah said, "When I came here so many years back, I was thrilled about my new clothes and fresh look and happy that my parents wouldn't be watching over me. But back then I did not know how strict and strenuous the hostel routine would be. I am proud to be a Bronsonian today and look forward to visiting my alma mater as a good human being some day." Shubhalaxmi Khogken. "Though I had been waiting for this time when I will graduate from this School but now that the time has finally arrived, I do not want to leave this place. I will cherish the time spent here amongst good friends and under excellent tutelage of sincere teachers. It is tough to say goodbye." Sadique A Rahman. "My journey at MBRS began in 2004 when I joined here in Class 2 and all of a sudden realise now that the time has come to leave the School behind and march on. How the time flies! When I leave for college, I will miss four parents, my biological ones, and the Principal and the Secretary Ma'am. I thank all and will miss my friends." Rimu Saha. I have spent five years in this School and it seems everything that happened here was for the good. I did not have a direction and the greatest contribution the School has made to my life is to have given a definite direction to my life." Rajat Theron. "Having spent seven years of my life in this School, it is difficult to imagine I am about to leave. I would like to thank the Principal Sir and Secretary Ma'am for all the love and guidance. I also thank all my teachers for excellent education imparted to me and other children. I also would like to thank all the ladies (helpers) who have been relentlessly serving us in the dining hall and taking so much care of us all." Biru Saha. "I joined MBRS at a time when I had no sense of direction and I considered myself to be out of shape. Today, thanks to MBRS and its excellent faculty, I have a vision and feel more in control." The atmosphere was one of nostalgia but also of jubilation as yet another batch of our School is about to take wings and undertake another journey of higher learning.
