From Chairman's Desk

"Education is the key to unlock the golden door of freedom."

Education is an essential human virtue. Education, if looked at beyond its conventional boundaries, forms the very essence of all our actions. What we do is what we know and have learned, either through instructions or through observation and assimilation. Man becomes 'man' through education. He is what education makes him. Education is the process of learning and knowing, which is not restricted to our text-books. It is a holistic process and continues through our life. Even the regular happenings and events around us educate us, in one or the other way.  The biggest part of growing up is making the right choices that benefit you in the future. The idea is to get an education so you can choose a career, have hope, and reach your goals and dreams.

Students, generally, fear to take up an examination. They regard it a great evil. But, the importance of an examination is still sufficiently great. There can be no other proper way to judge the merit of each student. Exams are very crucial determinant of our final grade so I am wishing you a remarkable score for this test. I know we’ll made it through and reach our dreams. Just believe in yourself. Sometimes your ambitions get flop. Sometimes your assumptions go wrong but your Goal is still waiting for you. Be positive, proactive & innovative.

From Chairman's Desk
Dear Student 

As a part of the broad educational system, extracurricular activities are the key tool in the overall personality development of the students not only for entertainment, social and enjoyment purposes but also to gain and improve skills.

The broad goals of such activities focus on the individual level, the institutional level and the community level. These activities are performed to complement the academic curriculum and to enhance the student's educational experience. They provide a setting to become involved and to interact with other students, thus leading to increased learning and enhanced development.

As the development of the individual is the main goal of extracurricular activities, the various experiences have a positive impact on the students' emotional, intellectual, social and inter-personal development. The students learn to negotiate, communicate, manage conflict and lead others by working together with other individuals. These out-of-the-classroom activities help students to understand the importance of critical thinking skills, time management, academic and intellectual competence. Working with diverse group of individuals allows the students to gain more self-confidence and appreciation. Extracurricular involvement allows students to link academic knowledge with practical experience, which leads to a better understanding of their own abilities, talents and career goals.

Taking part in all such activities is a must for every student.

Dr. Amit Gupta (Chairman)
