After the torch lighting and oath taking ceremony, the distinguished guests took the salute of the impressive march past in which the four houses of the school, namely Amritamayi, Anandmayi, Chinmayi and Jyotirmayi house took part. The Amrita band rendered invigorating beats to the formal march led by the captains of the houses. In her keynote address the principal, Bri.
