ANNUAL REPORT 2021-2022

Namaste

My Pranams to the respected Dignitaries, Distinguished parents, staff, students and well-wishers .

EXCELLENCE IS PERSEVERANCE IN THE MIDST OF OBSTACLES.

What seemed like a temporary disruption in the world, has now become the new normal. We are now into the third year of living with the pandemic, and needless to say, our schools are yet again forced to adopt newer strategies to see that learning continues to happen at its best . The transition to online teaching and now to the hybrid mode of schooling, though not easy, has taught us that adapting and innovating continuously are the only ways forward.

Now the time has come to look back with gratitude at the year gone by and the plethora of activities that bridged the disconnect between the real and the virtual. I take great pleasure in presenting the Annual Report of Bhavan’s Vidya Mandir, Eroor for the year 2021-2022.
