Message from the Principal :

The child of today is the adult citizen of tomorrow. She/he has to be prepared for the responsibility and privileges of life. This preparation for the future is dynamic aspect of our life. The best preparation of the future is that the present possibilities should be realized, present potentialities are to be developed. Then they will be able to face the future situations and meet the future environment. The future is not isolated, it is continuous with the present. So, when the present potentialities are developed, the future is provided for. Life is continuously developing and best presentation for this can be achieved by making present experiences of the child as full as possible. The immense energy spent by the children at present should be properly channelized for constructive purpose.
