The essence of education is to help students to discover their innate talents. We teach every child to develop talents not only in academics but also in other spheres of life. We extract
and expose this through a series of activities, competitions round the calendar. As an integral part of unearthing the talents within, this year too, we have conducted number of competitions
at every level like essay writing, elocution, dance, music, quiz, simulation etc. to bring about all-round development in the students. A special feature this year is that our children participated in

A massive number of 945 children along with 120 staff enthralled themselves in the shallow waters and the shade of the Palmolive trees in the loving company of
Their friends and teachers. They also relished quite a good variety of sumptuous meals and snacks. It was a memo
“If help and salvation are to come, they can only come from the children, for the children are the makers of men”.
Let me start with the tiny tots, we had initiated the play-way method with a motive to attract them to school environment. These mainly include classroom activities and art activities. We have also started celebrating the various festivals in the school to inculcate the love for our culture and tradition.

To inculcate the habit the reading of reading among our students “The One Nation Reading Together’ program was organized under the aegis of e Scholastic Book Club, Gurgaon 0n 5th of December for classes VI and VII .The graffiti wall for writing inspirational thoughts was arranged for the higher classes.
Along with good reading, it is of utmost importance to have a neat hand writing too. This is a big asset to the students. Thus we had a ten day calligraphy course in which around 150 children participated enthusiastically. We can see many of these students writing neatly and beautifully.
With practice they will surely perfect this art.
Visit to old age homes
India is known for strong family ties and joint family system. With the change of times this seems to fall apart. In order to inculcate love and respect for the senior citizens and for life itself we organized trips to orphanages and old age homes in the neighborhood.
Humane attitude is what we need to possess to accept such a way of life. Our students of classes IX and X were taken for a visit to the old age home in October. They spent some time interacting with them and shared their joys and sorrows. It was a nice feeling. They also contributed voluntarily for their medicines and food. It was a touching experience for many students.

In the cause of education, we have conducted regular and special PTMs to discuss the problems and suggest solutions on the academic and the behavioral front.

Our school NCC cadets have once again proved that their motto is ‘Unity and Discipline’. Around 35 boys and 25 girls participated in the combined Annual Training Camp held at Medikonda, Warangal from 21st to 30th June 14’.

Three cheers to our NCC First Officer Mr.A.V.Varma for all the excellent guidance and training that he has imparted to the children all these years.
Scout and Guides
“Be Prepared... the motto of a scout is always practiced by our scouts by coming to the rescue of the needy in every situation. They are ever prepared to help. They helped in the smooth conduct of Bhadradri Balotsav and Mukkoti Ekadasi celebrations.They had a camp in our school premises in December.
We have the scouts and guides wing from Class V to VIII. At present Mr. S. Ramesh,who has succeeded Mr. Prakasam in training the children in being prepared for any situation.
All these achievements were possible because of the commitment of all concerned, the Management, Teaching and Non-teaching staff and the students. Though we are proud of our many successes, we cannot be satisfied by simply resting on our laurels. Indeed, it is our mission to strive higher, no matter how many goals we reach along the way. This true and indefatigable spirit of lifelong progress runs through the very core of our school.
For education to be complete, it must include not only the training of the intellect but the refinement of the heart and the discipline of the spirit.
Through explicit and Implicit School based activities we provide opportunities to enable our young learners to acquire knowledge, skills and the habits of mind and heart that will develop them into creative, confident individuals as well as active informed citizens.
This annual report apparently seems a summary of the year that was, highlighting excellence of performance, but it conveys a great deal more. It is a reflection of school ethos, a statement of our unwavering personal commitment, the conviction and faith with which we pursue our goals and the very spirit with which we at BPS work.
In Einstein’s words we believe that “the most important motive for work in school is pleasure in work, pleasure in its result, and the knowledge of the value of the result to the community “
Lord grant me the courage to change the things I can, humility to accept the things I cannot and the wisdom to know the difference.
Wish you all a very happy Sankranthi!!!
