Brig. Khalid Bashir also graced everyone with his presence at the ceremony, upon their arrival, the school staff greeted them and the students presented Mrs. Kiran with a bouquet of flowers. The main purpose of the Annual Proclamation was to encourage good academic performance at the school and those exceptional students who had shown excellent performance in their studies throughout the year were awarded with prizes and certificates moreover Mrs. Kiran personally handed over each deserving student their rightful reward and took a picture with them.
