“My once introvert child has bloomed like a beautiful fragrant flower ever since he has been tended by the love and care of Apeejay.

I want to thank the school for bringing out the best in him and Taresh is very happy to receive the honour. According to him, the award gave him strength to perform better across all the streams,” says Ms. Arti Datta, mother of class 7 student Taresh Datta.
