Dear Parents

The 2016-17 academic year has come to an end; it was indeed a historical year for all of us . We crossed an important milestone – we bid farewell to fourth batch of Grade X who took their CBSE Board Exams March 2017. While we are happy to see them grow into confident young adults ready to take on life, we miss them immensely. Tears rolled down our cheeks when a rendezvous was organized in our campus on the 26th day of February 2016. The programme concluded and it will surely be written in the annals of this great institute's history.

The year saw varied events and happenings that touched us, inspired us and taught us. All year through the whole school team continued to put in efforts towards quality improvement in every aspect of work. We set standards and goals for ourselves and strived to achieve them – be it in the area of academics, sports, events, discipline, leadership, management systems and more. Each year lays the foundation for ideas and improvement for the year to come. The coming year is promising and defining too. So it is time to move on…

We are approaching our 8th year of school. Time truly flies. It is time to consolidate and reiterate the principles, values and beliefs SRI stands for. This sentiment resonates in us and its value stands embedded into our very fabric. We have laid down tiny, achievable, tangible, tickable targets (I call them TATTs) for every level and department, which will be reviewed and reflected upon as we go along through year.

The spirit and essence gets captured in the true tangible commandments that we have worked this year on. I would like to emphasize on one main point here…

Our focus in the coming year would be on increasing our level of responsibility and accountability – this is both for our students and us teachers. The performance you will soon see is based on this thought as well. Our effort will be to develop intrinsic motivation. As students, move to more and more student-led activities by which we can promote internal locus of control without needing constant push and pull from adults. Being responsible in their words, actions and the work they do.

We need to train our kids to take charge and trust that they will – and let them be responsible for their success and failure.

As adults we need to emulate the same and show them the path – accept responsibility to achieve our goals. We need to lead by example. What children learn most from us is our attitudes, values and perception.

This is the message we need to give collectively.

In all of these efforts we will need our parents to partner with us at all levels. After all, holistic education of our students is our common goal.

I must sincerely thank our mentors for their unrelenting support, and hope that they will continue to support us in our small and big endeavors.

The school has carved a niche for itself among the cluster of educational institutions in the city and state, and will continue to spread it wings far and wide.

As our journey continues, we take on new challenges, new solutions and new heights. We know ideas will be born, to be discarded, to be adopted, to succeed and to triumph.

But we shall not cease from exploration. And the end of all our exploring, we will arrive where we started and know that place for the very first time.

May the force be with us as we go on.

"In school, you're taught a lesson and then given a test. In life, you're given a test that teaches you a lesson." – Tom Bodett

So I tell all my loving children to gear up for the coming days with zeal and vigour.
