By the grace of God our new academic session 2019-2020 commenced on 2nd April, 2019 with renewed energy, excitement and enthusiasm filled in the hearts of students and teachers alike. I would like to extend my heartfelt gratitude to the Management and our Principal, Rev. Dr. V. Eusebius for the faith and trust they reposed in my abilities and for providing me an opportunity to serve this Institution as the co-ordinator of the Senior School. We are indebted to our Principal whose insight and vision has brought tremendous success in the overall growth of our esteemed institution. A Teacher’s role is mainly to have a positive influence on a child’s personality, development of character, training her faculties and skills and helping her to reason out things logically for herself with a liberal and open mind. Every child should be given ample opportunities to prove her talents to the optimum potential and with this aim in mind we at GHS emphasize on all round development of a child. We provide limitless opportunities and facilities to our students to express originality and creativity. The much awaited ICSE results were declared in the first week of May and we can proudly say that we had cent percent result. On 1st July, 2019 the GHS website was launched by Rev. G. Daud, secretary AHSS. Later an inspirational and motivational session, ‘Come let us build lives’ was conducted by our Principal, Rev. Dr. V. Eusebius. Multifarious competitions were organised during the year for the progress of the students. Elocution involves correct modulation of the voice, effective speaking and proper pronunciation. It instils confidence in a student to speak before a gathering. The English Elocution was held on 27th July, 2019 and the Hindi Elocution was held on 31st July, 2019. Another important activity was choosing the office bearers for the New Academic Session. An impressive Installation Ceremony was held on 13th August, 2019 for the session 2019-2020. Dr. Rita Bahuguna Joshi, Member of Parliament was the chief guest who administered the oath to the newly elected office bearers. Republic Day and Independence Day were celebrated with great patriotic fervour. To pay homage to the Father of the Nation, Mahatma Gandhi on his 150th birth anniversary a special Assembly was held and Dr. Y. Tewari, Head of the Department Medieval and Modern History, University of Allahabad was the Chief Guest. Health care programme was organised for the students of the senior school. Smart class Programme was conducted for the students throughout the year which was greatly appreciated by the parents as learning becomes easier and interesting. On 9th August, 2019 Vriksha Ropan Mahakumbh 2019, a tree plantation drive was organised at parade Ground. It was a noble programme of forming a world record in the Guinness Book. GHS proudly participated and received 2250 saplings, which was distributed to the students who had space to plant it in their homes and vicinity. The importance of sports as an integral part of education cannot be denied. The preparation for the much awaited sports and P.T. Display started well in advance to make it a memorable event. The honourable Minister of Minority Affairs, Mr. Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi graced the occasion with his presence and also unveiled the plaque of the foundation stone of the E-Library. In the festive season of Christmas the GHS family once again decided that they cannot enjoy the glitter and gifts of this festival without sharing their joy with others. The students generously donated new clothes, toys and stationery material for the children suffering from cancer. A visit to the Shelter Homes was planned under the guidance of our Principal. A Christmas programme was also organized before the school closed for the winter vacations. In the end, I wish to thank our Principal for her guidance and support rendered in every step on the way to progress. I also thank God for all his blessings, He has showered upon us and this Institution that it may continue to grow and prosper.
