Dear Parent,

Let me begin my note to you with a quote by John Joseph Powell “It is an absolute human certainty that no one can know his own beauty or perceive a sense of his own worth until it has been reflected back to him in the mirror of another loving, caring human being.” 

Here, ‘one’ stands for the School and ‘another’ is you. How the School is moving, the direction it is following, the outcomes envisaged by it, are all threaded by the partnership between you and the School. 2014 has been yet another fulfilling year with its crests and troughs. The result is before all of us, to see. The majestic elephant has marched stridently ahead, impressing upon one and all that its path is well charted, its vision is clear and its goal is single: achieving excellence in all spheres.

The Principal’s report has outlined clearly all that we have accomplished in the year that is fast drawing to a close. I cannot help but smile when I see where we have reached. From 11 boys qualifying for the Principal’s dinner in 2012, by achieving 90% and above, to 76 this year, I am not surprised by all that we have achieved. Things that seemed impossible thus far have now been attained-Jai Vikram’s feat scoring an aggregate of 99.2 % in class XII, along with a few more boys who scored a perfect 100 in some subjects, jumps to my mind! Actually I can’t stop talking about it giving us a shot in the arm to enlarge our vision and goals for the coming year! The present classes, X and XII, have a huge task to accomplish. They are to match or overtake the academic results of the previous batch in the upcoming Board exams. With the boys’ efforts bolstering our intentions, I pray that we do very well again. And of course, our accomplishment in co-curricular fields is a rather long list!

None of this would have been possible without the dogged support of the Board, the staff, the Old Boys, well wishers and you parents. You are our reflectors and till now, I have seen a happy reflection in you and pray that this will never change. You and I will never let that happen because, in the end, our goals are one and the same. The parents’ portal launched at the Founder’s this year is up and running.

When the staff and students move for the winter vacation, the hustle begins to wind down, but action continues, though on a different front. Work has expedited on the completion of the maintenance block, volleyball courts, squash courts and of course other ongoing projects.

As we put behind one action-packed year, we look forward to the next which will bring with it new challenges, newer heights and newer glories. Let us brace ourselves for all of this and come back together well-prepared to take the school forward.

You already have a copy of the calendar from April 2014 to March 2015. You will receive a copy of the new calendar in April 2015. In the interim, I would like to share with you some important dates in April-May 2015. The Spring Festival will be celebrated on the 10th and 11th April, 2015. The vacation dates for summer are as follows:-

  • School closes for summer vacation on 14th May, 2015
  • School re-opens on 16th July, 2015

I wish each one of you a happy winter break with your children. May the almighty bless 2015 as a year of fulfilment, peace, glories and prosperity for the entire world and for the large Welham Boys’ family, in particular.

God bless us all!

Warm regards
Gunmeet Bindra
