I would like to appreciate the efforts of Principal Ma’am, Ms. Sinia Sajith, who is managing the school really well.”

Looking back at the growth of the school, Sajith says, “The past year has been full of challenges. It was a year of observation and learning, and during this time, our number one priority was to keep the school open and help students learn. Prompt communication was our focus in order to support students in this tough time. To provide state-of-the-art Science, Arts and Mathematics laboratories to our students, we are currently working on our infrastructure, keeping in mind all the necessary facilities required to grow into a larger entity.”

“We conducted special sessions, talks and webinars for teachers throughout Covid-19 for skill-enhancement and capacity building.
