It is a pleasure for me to write to the one of the most cherished stakeholders of this great institution – our alumni.
First, I would like to place on record my deep appreciation towards the multiple roles played by you in the society. From leadership positions in the corporate world to that in the armed forces, from aviation to IT, your efforts being done for the development of our society have been commendable.
In this regard, I would also like to thank all of you for your keen support to your alma mater all these years and wanted to share some of my thoughts with you..
I have had the privilege of being associated with this great institution for the past year and I must say, the passion which all the stakeholders – students, parents, teachers and the alumnus, share is truly extraordinary and special.
I have taken over as Principal of the school since March this year. This is at a time when the city has seen several education institutions coming up recently. Though our school has always been at a pole position, yet we cannot afford to be complacent in any way.
I have had several discussions with parents, alumni and have closely engaged with students and teachers in the past few weeks. Together with our committed team and under the leadership of President of Apeejay Education Society, Mrs Sushma Paul Berlia, the school is working on a roadmap with an intent to ensure that the school continues to lead as one of the best, not just in the city, but the entire Delhi-NCR.
Specifically, for academics, I am very glad to announce the tie-up of Apeejay Education Society with one of India’s leaders in competitive coaching for science and mathematics – Avanti! Our goal is to provide our students top quality coaching to do well in IIT JEE, CET, NEET and other competitive exams, without losing focus for the Boards. Classes for XI and XII have already started and those for IX and X shall commence soon.
While, there is a renewed focus of the school on academics, yet the same would be done in a manner our school has been specially known for – ensuring a holistic growth of the child. Whilst ensuring undwindled focus on academics, sports and co-curricular activities at the school would be promoted proactively and shall continue to receive special focus.
Towards this goal, we have recently put up state of the art sporting facilities for the young kids at the primary wing. Meanwhile, as some of you who are a part of our parent community as well, would have seen, building upgradation works is also on in full swing and should be completed in the coming months.
In parallel, works in the senior campus would start very soon also, commencing with the installation of the state of the art sporting facilities. The same is receiving a keen support from the management of the school and we should be able to complete most of the works in the coming months.
Through this message, I would like to once again commend your continued support towards the mutual efforts of the students, parents and the school and would be glad to meet with you in the school to discuss any suggestions that you may have.
I must also mention here that an institution’s fame rests not only on its administration and teaching staff, but also on the achievements and developments of its students. We are extremely proud and fortunate that you have been an important part of our institution and will remain in our hearts forever.
Many of you have moved to different parts of the world. However, whenever you are travelling back to the city, I look forward to meeting you, listen to your success stories and reward this school with your achievements.
In the coming weeks, we are also planning to organize a get together of the alumni of the school for which you shall hear from us soon.
I very much look forward to seeing you then, if not earlier.
