“Do your little bit of good where you are: it is those little bits of good put together that overwhelm the world”.

Kindness, a virtue of paramount importance, is not easy to come across. Not everybody goes out of their way to help someone else, but there is no denying that there is an absolute necessity to be nice and be helpful to the needy. Bringing this idea to the fore, this year with the tremendous support from the parents, students and staff of our school, we received significant contributions to implement various outreach programmes through the charity drive Dhaan Deepthi.


In Edition 1, a social responsibility initiative, ‘A Blanket to Battle the Cold’, was organized by the school SEED club members to provide blankets to the needy & helpless members of the ‘Paniya tribe’ at Wayanad. Edition 2 of Dhaan Deepthi, jointly organized by the Interact club and SEED club, marked successful projects like ‘Clothes Collection Drive’, ‘The Sewing Machine Project’ and ‘Back to School Stationery Drive’. As part of the drive, the school also raised an amount to help the families of the Paniya tribe. A small sale of ornamental plants, guppy fish and vegetable seedlings was also organized.

On this occasion it is worth mentioning the relentless efforts of our Seed Club teacher coordinators, Smt Susheela Gopinath, Smt. Tessy George , Smt Beena George and the seed club students Sanjana Prajeesh, Chetan A Nair, Aswin R, Sharan Suresh, Rahika R Nair, Poornima R Nair, Ishaan A Tharik, Aakash Biju, Ila Laxmi Sharma, Achu Krishnagopal, Shreya Manoj, Rithuraj V, Sidharth Utham KS , Ayush Biju  and …..who dedicated their soul and heart for the fulfillment  of this initiative.




Attending workshops is like giving a novel possibility to learn something new and the objective of all our Seminars and Workshops is to provide participants with simple yet powerful strategies and skills that may be used to enhance the teaching-learning techniques .It enables the teachers to be more productive and innovative in their online modes of teaching.

Building constructions and renovations


School renovation and restructuring are important for creating a contemporary infrastructure that meets the needs of upgraded pedagogy. Reshaping the learning spaces and making the construction futuristic adds value to a student’s life.


The construction of lifts in the Munshi Block which leads to the auditorium and the one in the Sree Sankara Block that makes the library easily accessible is in progress. Bridges connecting the Sree Sankara and C V Raman blocks have completed its construction and a  pathway from C V Raman Block  to the canteen has also been ready for the students and the staff.


Before concluding this report, I bow my head in reverence to the God Almighty for the blessings he has showered upon this institution. We are indeed blessed to have a very supportive management and I would like to express our sincere thanks to the Chairman, Sri.C Venugopal C Govind, Director, Sri.E Ramankutty and the Committee Members of Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan, Kochi Kendra who have helped, guided and most importantly encouraged us on all occasion.


May I also take this opportunity to express my deepest gratitude to the teaching and non-teaching staff, parents, students, PTA Executive Committee Members and all other well-wishers for the whole hearted support and cooperation.
