“Children must be taught how to think, not what to think” – Margaret Mead.20160921_144226

This is the essence of teaching and learning.Many of the problems ilife are because of two reasons. We act without thinking or we keep thinking without acting. How do we act? How to be positive? How to achieve success?                    

All these are interrelated. A positive mental approach is one of the most important elements of ACT of success. Students, who think positively about themselves, their surroundings and have confidence in their abilities, ultimately achieve success.

I take this wonderful opportunity to present before you the Annual Report of 2015-16. This year has been an unforgettable and a successful one.
