              From the Headmaster’s Desk

              “Educationists should build the capacities of the spirit of inquiry, creativity, entrepreneurial and moral leadership among students and become their role model.”

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                        - Dr APJ Abdul Kalam

              These words from a teacher ring so true and worthwhile. 5th September is the Teacher’s Day to acknowledge the presence of a “GURU” as the ultimate guiding light. Every day for me is a Teacher’s Day, as they epitomise guru, father, mother, friend, philosopher, critic and guide.
              This beautiful relationship allows the students to believe in their own self and grow beyond their potential. Let us together celebrate the omnipotent presence of our teachers who let us fly high and grow into beautiful beings. No praise would suffice to capture the undying spirit of a teacher?for they never let go of their students even when everyone else has caved in. All the more in this pandemic, when they are having multiple roles of learning and teaching on a medium which, in itself, is daunting and taxing. My salute to all these educational warriors for their unending battles. Please carry on, doing your best, appreciation or no appreciation.
              I again end with Dr Kalam’s belief? “If a country is to be corruption-free and become a nation of beautiful minds, the three key members who can make a difference are?Mother, Father and the Teacher.

              Happy Teacher’s Day!

              From the Deputy Headmaster’s Desk

              Happy Teacher’s Day! Greetings to all worthy teachers who have the credit of contributing immensely towards the building up and development of each child under their care.
              It is an onerous task and I compliment all our teachers for carrying it out so earnestly to bring such magical transformation in each soul touching them tenderly with the affection of a parent and a mentor. No matter how much we thank and acknowledge our teachers, it is never enough to express our gratitude.
              The kids have been entrusted to us in good faith to mould and shape them. So, let us handle them with utmost care that they may carry the most beautiful memory of us as individuals and PPS as their cradle.

              Sincerest thanks and gratitude to all.

              Onward and upward!
