As I look back in retrospect I feel immensely satisfied that we have been successful in creating a learning environment conducive to physical, mental and spiritual growth of students. We tried to raise the bar of quality and pedagogy being imparted and evolve new strategies. We implemented new trends in education like EyeRIS and ERP for making learning and teaching more interactive, pleasurable and meaningful, both for students and teachers.
The efforts of teachers and students paid good dividends and in ICSE 2012, 33% of our students scored 90% and above marks and we stood third in the inter-campus merit list.
It gives me immense pleasure to mention here that this year we successfully organized Confluence 2012 – World Peace and World Unity Festival and witnessed overwhelming response from Pakistan, Mauritius, Nepal, Sri Lanka, Dubai, Sharjah and many schools of India and Lucknow. Ms Fumi John Stewart, Executive Director, the World Peace Prayer Society, USA and Ms Jules Lamore, Director, Peace Pals Programme, USA were among the many dignitaries who graced the festival. Confluence 2012 provided international exposure to our students and helped them overcome barriers of caste, colour, creed, nationality and language. They got an opportunity to interact and compete with students from all parts of the world.
Laying special emphasis on social concerns and environmental issues, we took up various projects like ground water conservation week, awareness drive, trip to NBRI, tree plantation in the vicinity, anti cracker drive etc. to sensitize the students as well as the parents.
We firmly believe that children have curious and fertile minds and unlimited creative ideas. I am grateful to my teachers and staff for leaving no stone unturned to bring out the best in every child, instilling confidence in students and igniting in young minds love for humanity. I am also thankful to our parents who have always supported us in all our endeavours.
My best wishes to the present Class X students for their forthcoming ICSE Board Examinations and life thereafter. I extend a heartfelt gratitude to our Founder-Director, Dr Bharti Gandhi and Founder-Manager, Dr Jagdish Gandhi for their unflinching support and guidance.
