Annual Report  




A sun’s rise is God’s way of saying -Let’s start again…

Silver Jubilee is a milestone in the remarkable journey of an educational institution that signifies age and maturity. It is a celebrative milestone in the mission & vision and a momentous occasion for everybody concerned. It gives us opportunity to reflect upon how much needs to be done and how far we need to progress - A tryst with destiny that everyone associated with it would like to celebrate with zest & zeal,  cherish it lifetime.

My heart thrills with joys unspeakable to extend you all a hearty welcome as  this Alma mater is geared up  to celebrate its silver Jubilee to commemorate its  resplendent voyage of 25 years. While the winter has spread its wintry touch everywhere in this dewy evening ,the silvery moon spreads its silvery rays over this camouflaged earth, the school in its new get up is all set to embrace a silvery dawn of new hopes and aspirations. 25 years back in the year 1997 this Alma mater took its genesis at Ananta Vihar as a small sapling and over the years this small sapling has taken the shape of a huge tree, metamorphosing a number of alumni from a toddler to a responsible citizen of the nation and becoming the cynosure of attraction for one and all in this black diamond belt. “The bad news is time flies, but the good news is you are the pilot…”

ACADEMICS - The hallmark of an educational institution is its academic excellence as all other activities revolve around this to shape the career of  a child. Since the day of inception , an enduring and effective learning experience to each learner has been the core focus of the school and the school has achieved  consistently good results in CBSE Std-X &XII Board Examination. The school produced its first batch of Class –X in the year 2003 and the school topper of the year was Archana Raul who had a score of 89.2%. The first batch of Std.
