Message from Principal

At the very outset, I would like to congratulate all the teachers and students for the excellent results of the year 2020 – 2021. Each one of us and the entire world is affected by the corona virus pandemic; our economy, our families, communities and our entire way of life are adversely affected by the scare of infection and contagion.

To begin with, I request all of you to place on record the brave hearts who have been working tirelessly putting at risk their own life, all the volunteers, health professionals all over the world. Their selfless service is commendable. Let us in spirit wish and pray for all people who have been affected by the virus directly and indirectly.

Dear parents, I request you to keep your wards at home till an official intimation is sent from the school through the messages with the date of re-joining. Till this official intimation, you are advised to ensure that the students to continue with the current system of learning ie. Through online classes.

My dear Students, keeping in mind your health and wellbeing, I request you not to risk travelling unnecessarily from one place to another for various reasons.

This pandemic on one hand has created a great havoc especially in the weaker section of the society but on the other hand it gives us an opportunity to come out as a strong human race. One needs to remember that any one of us can fall due to chance or mistake but the important thing is how quickly we stand-up and begin the normal course of life towards our vision.

COVID-19 Pandemic has surely altered lives and disrupted normal life across the world. We understand the challenges faced by you, your parents and the teachers to cater to the academic needs during closure of school and adapting to virtual learning. But I am proud of you as you continued to demonstrate diligence, motivation and determination to work to the best of your abilities to learn new instructions.

Our talented and dedicated staff, have been showing their care and concern for the students working from home preparing notes and engaging classes online for the benefit of students. I appreciate their concern for the students and commitment to academics.

A big hand for all the parents for their continued support. We believe that this is the time to not just deal with the current emergency, but also build foundations of resilience to face such difficult events in the future. Let us consider this formidable challenge as an opportunity to learn and must rise to meet this bravely. We shouldn't let the pandemic pin us down. We must remain positive and keep our hopes alive as I believe that " Nothing is predestined. The obstacles of our past can become the gateways that lead to new beginnings."

Here are some tips to remain positive, strong and upbeat during this challenging time.
