Students were given the responsibility of holding the administration and its responsibilities for today. A student of Class 12 science acted as the Principal and a number of students from class 10, 11 and 12 acted as responsible teachers, conducting classes from primary to secondary. After the classes ended, the real teachers were felicitated for their contribution in the life of the students. Students expressed gratitude and homage to Lt.
