The festival cricket match was played between staff and students on November 30, 2020. The staff team was led by Headmaster Mr Ajay Singh and the students’ team was captained by Head Boy Shivam Virk. The proceedings got underway at 6.00 pm at the Headmaster’s Green. The batting and bowling were mutually decided. It was a 12-over match. The staff team batted first and put on board an impressive score of 111 for 7. Mr Ajay Singh contributed blistering 34 runs off 38 balls. He batted till the tenth over. He was supported in his efforts by cricket coach Mr Gurmeet Sethi. The duo of Shivam Virk and Mehul Maur did their level best to restrict the staff team but failed miserably. It was an uphill task for the students to chase the target with an asking rate of 9.3 per over. Shivam and Maninderpal were the openers. They scored 29 in 3 overs when Maninder lost his wicket. Shivam was the next to go. With the captain’s departure, the students were not able to firm up a stable partnership. The blitzkrieg unleased by the staff was simply unstoppable. With eight wickets down, it was left to Kartikey and Harman to salvage some pride. They managed to make it to 50 runs but it was too late to repair the damage. Manav contributed with a few boundaries here and there. The lethal bowling by staff undid every tactic and strategy adopted by the students. The Headmaster’s haul of 5 wickets got the staff its first 57-run win of the season. The commentators comprised Ranjodh Singh, Tavish Sood, Gurnoor Pahwa, Naina Bath and Chandan.

        PPS re-opens
        Parents heave a sigh of relief   

        PPS re-opened finally on November 18, 2020 after an 8-month long uncertainty over life flowing back into old, familiar grooves. The parents started pouring quite early in the morning. A little apprehensive about leaving their wards on the campus with yet another spike in cases in the post-Diwali milieu, parents were in for a pleasant surprise when they saw proper arrangements in place right from sanitization booth to proper check-up in the School MI to sanitizing the luggage to the allotment of specific spaces in the dormitories to their sons and daughters. The Housemasters/Housemistresses and Assistant Housemasters/Assistant Housemistresses did a commendable job in instilling confidence into the parents. Convinced of the efficacy of the arrangements and foolproof safety protocols, parents called upon indecisive parents to follow suit for a better future for their wards. Speaking about the pastoral care, mother of Shivam Virk, Head Boy complimented Mr Ajay Singh, Headmaster, PPS for leading from the front and ensuring things moved in a hassle-free manner. Dr Rakesh Alfred, Deputy Headmaster and Dr Ankur Samuel Birkett, Bursar expressed gratitude to the parents for reposing trust and supporting the school in these times of monumental crisis. The role of support staff came in for a special praise who went out of the way to lend a helping hand wherever required.
