It gives me a great pleasure to receive you all at the beginning of the new academic session 2022-23. I welcome you to the new academic year that has come with a new hope- a hope that after the dark clouds of COVID 19 , a silver lining of getting back to normal life from the new normal will appear soon. New normal is what we have adapted in the pandemic time.
The past two academic years, were a challenging time for students, teachers and parents. It started with panic in mind; however, it has now ended with a hope in heart. The students could come to school for a few months and it relieved them to a great extent to sit in the class rooms, interact with teachers and enjoy the school life. Though our students missed face to face interaction with their teachers for many months, the school saw to it that there was no loss in their academics. In the beginning, the teachers started online classes using whatever knowledge of technology they had and with the passage of time, the hybrid mode – online as well as offline mode – was adapted. Teachers as well as students made their efforts in making things possible in the new normal. The teachers delivered curriculum with the adaption of new ICT tools and the students received it sitting in the safe corners of their cosy homes. Both the teachers as well as the students resisted the adverse situation, hence displayed resilience.
A new ray of hope has been generated by the introduction of – NEP 2020, a pristine document on education that maintains a delicate balance between the traditions and the interdisciplinary approach, which is the need of the 21st century. The school, through its regular schedule, will carry out activities to match the spirit of the policy.
Our next academic year’s theme will be patriotism. We all will endeavour to strengthen this quality in us in tune with the celebrations going on under ‘Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav. This theme will highlight the rich culture and heritage of India and celebrate India’s ethnicities speaking different languages, eating different foods, and following distinct customs.
Let’s accept the change and challenges coming on our way with a smile on our face and faith in our hearts. Let’s always remember
