I am greatly honoured to be here in this auspicious moment to present before you the Second Annual Report of Krish School. Let us thank the Almighty God for the blessings showered upon us during this academic year.
As you all know, Krish School started functioning in June 2012.Now we have completed four successful academic sessions. In this occasion, may I extend my gratitude towards our Secretary,
Sri. B.M.Krishnappa, for his noble vision and mission for providing quality education at a very low and reasonable finance to the children of this rural and suburban locality, which is largely an agricultural based locality.
Our vision “Education in Toto” aims at the around development of the students- both physical and mental development. We believe that through the various learning activities, students can acquire a sense of unity, cheerfulness, a sense of belongingness, the heritage of our country, patriotism- along with academic knowledge.
The school year was very lively and colourful.Apart from learning, many celebrations and competitions were held. For creating a spirit of competitiveness among students, they were divided into Blue, Green, Yellow and Red houses.
We celebrated in this academic year, Environmental day, Independence Day, Varamahalakshmi Festival, Fruits Day, Teacher's Day, Gandhi Jayanthi, Kannada Rajyotsava Day, Children's Day, Christmas and New Year Celebrations, and our student's birth days. In each month, competitions for singing, drawing, colouring, painting, reading, rangoli, dance,memory test, rhymes and storytelling, dictation, essay writing, speech competition, hand writing etc were done and the certificates of merit were distributed . On the Independence Day, a special quiz competition was conducted on our freedom struggle. These festivals are celebrated in order to inculcate among the students, the message of National Integration, Secularism, Fraternity, and message of Live and Let Live and Tolerance, upholding the Gandhian values. Participation of students and the great support given by the management was overwhelming
Parent Teacher Association meeting was held on 20th June 2015. Almost all parents participated in the meeting. A six member PTA Executive Committee was elected which included three parents and three staff members.
An educational tour was held on 3rd October 2015 to historically important Thalakadu, Somanathapura and Gaganachukki falls. Almost all students of Primary wing , along with all teaching and non teaching staff participated. All our society members accompanied us for the tour. We give our extreme thanks for their great support. It was really a great success and all the children enjoyed it.They were thrilled to be away with their respective teachers on a day out.
For the first time , students of our school participated in an Inter School Talent Hunt Competition conducted on 10th January 2016 at Green Eden Public School, Medihalli. Several schools also participated for the various competitions. Our school won two First Prizes and one Second Prize.Shristi R. Gowda of UKG got First Prize for Storytelling, Pruthvishri.U of Std.III got First Prize for Drawing and Anthra Misra of UKG got Second Prize in Rhymes competition. On this occasion I congratulate the prize winners and the teachers concerned for their great efforts that brought fame and glory to Krish School. We hope to continue bringing laurels in future as well.
Even though the medium of instruction is English, we are giving much importance to the mother tongue _ Kannada. For improving the standard of Kannada language studies in the school, special coaching classes were conducted during the last Dusserah Holidays.
Introduction of " New Word" a day with spelling and meaning presented by each student of this school from KG section to Std V , in the school assembly found much enthusiasm and interest among students which will improve their English.
Moral Education, Physical Education, Health Education were also introduced to increase the physical and mental development of the children. A well equipped computer lab and a library is also functioning in the school and all the students and teachers have free access.
Earlier, an All Rounder Award was given to a student who excellled in all fields of learning processes. This year onwards, a Rolling Trophy will be presented to the best House of this school.We hope that it will create a healthy competition among the students in the various fields of curricular and co curricular activities.
All our school activities and information’s are being published on our website: www.krishschool.com.
I am happy to announce a brief account of the future projects of Krish School.
Krish School Management has applied for the permission to upgrade the existing primary school. We expect that from next academic year, ie. Academic Year 2016-17 - commencing from June 2016 onwards, we hope to start classes from Std.VI to Std.VIII . For that purpose, management has already acquired on lease, right at the place where we are presently conducting our Annual Day, 1.5 Acres of land. We hope that, by the grace of God, all classes can start functioning from June 2016 onwards in the new school buildings which will come upon this same site. There will be separate KG Section and a Play Area. Primary section will have all modern amenities and a separate play ground. The work has already started in this direction.
I take this opportunity to express my gratitude to our management for the great support given to us. I also extend my heartful thanks to the Education Department, and other Government Agencies and our bankers-Kauvery Grameena Bank, for their advice and support given to us. . I am giving special thanks to the Police for their advice and services given to us. I also express my gratitude to all the parents and other citizens of nearby villages for their continuous support and co-operation that enable us to move forward with confidence.
So far Krish School has sailed a small journey. In this journey, several individuals had given their valuable services to this institution in the past. Even though they are not serving Krish School at present, it is prudent to remember each one of them in this happy moment. My special remembrance to Mrs.Gini R. Philip, former Principal of Krish School, for her able leadership and hard work done during the infant stages of Krish School. I extend my heartful thanks to each one of them and prays for their bright future.
Last but not least, I thank all the staff, teaching and non-teaching, for their dedicated services, which is the key to all our successes and achievements. Let me conclude this report by entrusting our school to the divine hands of God for his blessings and for the journey ahead.
