The assembly was well attended by the dignitaries from the School Management committee, Mr. Ravi Jayanthi, Mr. Julius Antony and Mr. Sreekumar.
The programme was anchored by Amala Vinson of Class IX A. It began with the lighting of the lamp and a soulful prayer by the school choir.

The school’s boys and girls hockey teams felt very privileged when they were blessed by Naqvi Saheb for their future endeavours. In his welcome speech, the Principal, Mr. Nagesh Kelkar expressed his heart’s elation at receiving such a phenomenal persona who has been an epitome of hard work, humility and honesty. He aptly said that words were not enough to encapsulate the extraordinary accreditations of Mr. Naqvi. He reminded children that they should be proud to pick up this national game where the precious seventy minutes teach you to value the management of time, stamina, planning and hard work. He whole-heartedly thanked the School’s Management Committee for always supporting the academics and sport activities for the benefit of the children. The school choir enthralled the audience with a highly motivational song, ‘Badhe Chalo’.
There is a saying that simplicity is the key note to all true elegance and it befits the Chief Guest most aptly. Mr. Naqvi congratulated the school management and the principal for establishing such a noble tradition of remembering Major Dhyan Chand. He regaled the audience with the interesting anecdotes from Major Dhyan Chand’s Olympic matches and by telling them that he got the opportunity of playing in the Golden Era of Indian hockey from 1949 to1972 and be associated with stalwarts like dada Dhyan Chand, dada Kishen Lal and Sh. K D Singh Babu, the veteran players of the Indian Olympic hockey team. He expressed his happiness at being with the Seeb children. He highly lauded the initiation of the first girls’ hockey team in Oman in Indian School Al Seeb. He thanked Mr. Salih Thacher and Mr. Mohd. Rayis for accompanying him, and, for introducing him to such a wonderful set of children.
The Convener of the School Management Committee, Mr. Ravi Jayanthi thanked Naqvi Saheb on behalf of all and reminded children to follow the footsteps of such a renowned sports person who could read and write at this age without the aid of spectacles. He asked the children to make games and sports an integral part of their life to remain fit and healthy like this great hockey player. The programme ended with a formal note of thanks by Nishanth Roy of Class IX B, followed by the School Anthem.
Later that day, the students enjoyed the exhibition of all the innumerable, international level awards, trophies and medals of Sr. SAS Naqvi, which he graciously agreed to hand over to the school to be exhibited for the benefit of the children. They were seen requesting Mr. Naqvi for his autographs as he is the most sought after face on the Face Book also. The students, teachers and the management were elated at the glowing remarks written by Naqvi Saheb in the Visitor’s Record Book of the school, as he appreciated each and every one’s effort meticulously. In short this was the most appropriate way to pay tribute to one great man, Major Dhyan Chand by venerating another great player such as Sh. SAS Naqvi.
