MESSAGE FROM PRINCIPAL’S DESK

‘Education is a shared commitment between dedicated teachers, motivated students and enthusiastic parents with high expectations’

This is the beginning of yet another year of excitement, challenges, promises, excellence, appreciations and achievements for the students of ADIS, Branch 1. The past year, 2018-2019, had been fabulous as we excelled in various fields such as academics, sports, art, music, dance, debate and innovation.
With a proud heart, I am happy to announce that we have secured ‘BAND A’ (GOOD) in the recent ADEK inspection conducted in our school from 20th to 23rd January 2019. This would not have been possible without the constant support and guidance rendered to us by our Honourable Board of Governors and parents of our dear students.
Gone are the days we believe that Jack of all trades is the master of none.  The old proverb is made new to match the current movement. ‘New Jack’ is the master of all trades. At ADIS, Branch 1, we provide an atmosphere to our students for multifaceted development, where they are encouraged to channelize their potential in the pursuit of excellence.  Students are provided with a platform to think, express and exhibit their skills. While academic excellence is our major thrust, the school is also devoted to prepare the students for life. We groom them to face the challenges of tomorrow and encourage them to be socially and morally relevant as we are committed to create Global Citizens of 21st century.
Dear Parents, It is true that this is an age of competition. We need to re-invent ourselves to remain competitive. At the same time, we need to ensure that our children’s endeavour to compete and excel should not take the essence of its very purpose.  You should encourage them to refrain from running a rat race to get marks or outstanding grades. It is desirable to have a healthy competition to acquire the requisite skills. Please allow your children to pursue their passion. It nurtures the stimuli to explore, innovate and create. This will in turn help in developing their love for learning. Having an experience of many years in the field of education, I can quote numerous cases as testimony to this among which the life of one of my students who is an engineer by qualification but pursuing a career of a writer in a promising firm is inspiring to many. He was blessed to have parents who could realize his dreams and render a whole hearted support to him. As a teacher I am proud that I have a student who is pursuing a challenging profession by choice. Besides teachers and the school, parental support and motivation influence the most in moulding their future. It boosts up their confidence and empowers them to excel in everything they pursue.
The diminishing values among the present generation has been the topic of discourse nowadays.  Educational institutions have an undeniable role in teaching values to students and ADIS Branch 1 is dedicated to its mission of producing morally responsible citizens of 21st century. But we should never forget that home is where one starts from. It is the first university where children learn the first lessons of caring and respecting. Values cannot be taught if it is not caught.  Hence I have this piece of advice to my dear students. Express your gratitude by paying respect to your parents who have provided you with all the amenities of life. Teachers are your second parents who help you realize your potentials and lead you towards your goals. Appreciate them through your courteous behaviour. Let your manners and behaviour be a tribute to all those who have nurtured you.
You all are the new generation ‘Z’. Create your own story with your own matrix for success. Make all of us feel proud that we nurtured you all!

I wish all my students the very best of luck!
