President's Message


The importance of education in the life of an individual cannot be overstated. It shapes individuals in their formative years and imbues them with values that would govern all their choices in life. It is said ‘If you are planning for a year, sow rice; if you are planning for a decade, plant trees; if you are planning for a lifetime, educate people’. Indeed, one can even say that the quality of education will determine the destiny of the nation.


Our school will create an environment where children are encouraged to dream and strive towards making their dreams come true. Our Education will enhance and develop the child academically, physically, socially, and spiritually. We hope that our students will grow up to become outstanding entrepreneurs, scientists, engineers, doctors, leaders, social servants, volunteers, teachers, sportsmen and sportswomen, linguists, bankers, authors, nurses, mothers and fathers, and anything else that they want to be.


I wish all the very best to the child as he / she enters our school. I assure you that the school will prove a constant and devoted ally to your child in the journey of his / her educational adventure. May the child blossom into a genius, a masterpiece, and a bright star, who will bring honor and fame to home, school, community, country and the entire world.


Samir S Somaiya
