“A farmer sows a seed in soil and look after it but ultimately it is the sun and the rain which help the seed germinate.”
Parents are like farmers. They send their children to school and bear the necessary cost of education but it is ultimately the teachers who help the young little minds in becoming the future them. They foster and hone their students’ abilities and talents. Teachers play a monumental role in an individual’s life.
A teacher is like a candle kept in a dark room from which light rays emanate and drives out darkness and falsehood.

“Education means enabling the mind to find out that ultimate truth which emancipates us from the bondage of dust and gives us wealth not of things but of inner light, not of power but of love. It is a process of enlightenment. It is divine wealth. It helps in realization of truth”. -Rabindranath Tagore
Teacher help students in this very process of enlightenment. They guide us. They tread with us on our journey to success. They are flowers which bloom in the deepest valleys and yet can be seen from a distance. Their aura is knowledge and their acts are an inspiration. Their love is faithful and their care is genuine. They deserve more than just respect. They deserve our love, affection, and gratitude.
Happy Teacher’s Day.

It was a memorable time for Prerna Girls School and Vidyasthali School who secured positions in many intra-foundation events. The glittering golden trophy chose yellow to be it’s favourite. And, even though the winner among the houses, Cypress, cheered for each other and stood tall, they also showed great respect for their fellow teams. The others following in their footsteps celebrated their victory as well.
The school is not only hoisting a flag and banner for change but marches forward or rather flies ahead with the wings that each one of us chose instead of crawling through life, thus, following the words of Rumi, “Why prefer to crawl through life when you are born to fly?”
