ALUMNI

 

No distance of place or lapse of time can lessen the bond of those who are thoroughly aware of each other’s worth. One thing that makes an institution great is the friendships and memories created in the portals of the school. The Alumni Meet was held on 11 December 2022. Ex-students from across the batches were present. Around 200 alumni members participated. A friendly football match was also organised. The alumni have sponsored sports equipment to our school.

 

Innovation is the change that unlocks new values which leads to success. We continue to strive towards innovation and for that the latest practices in the field of education are being continuously incorporated.

This report is much more than a statement of the school’s activities and achievements in the last academic year. It is a reflection of the school ethos, an expression of the conviction and faith with which we pursue our goals and the very spirit with which we at present work.

At this juncture, I thank the Chairman, Director, Education and Research Wing,  the other members of the management committee, SMC and  the PTA whose prompt assistance and cooperation, encourage us to take this institution to greater heights. Let me place on record my deep appreciation to the untiring efforts of the committed team, the teaching and non-teaching staff of our school for discharging their duties in the best possible way. We are grateful to all the parents for their unswerving faith in us in transforming their children into responsible global citizens.

Live your life each day as you would climb a mountain

An occasional glance towards the summit keeps the goal in mind,

but many beautiful scenes are to be observed

from each new vintage point.

Thank you
