PARENT’S VOICE Dear all, I want to appreciate respected Principal Ma’am , Vice-Principal Sir, and all teachers for putting in so much effort and keeping patience in order to provide our kids international standards, which could have never expected in city like Purnea. I would like to share my experience which I had during my ward’s study of both Indian and International schooling. My son started his primary schooling in Brightlands school, Dehradun which is one of the best day boarding school in India, they have been providing ISC & ICSE boards toppers from decades, they have won so many trophies in bournvita quiz and so on. After that due to relocation we moved to Singapore, where my son got admission in local school which follows Australian Standard and Singapore is known for providing best primary school education in the world as far as I am aware off. Again due to relocation for looking after my father’s business I had to shift to India again. As there was no good school in Purnea then we decided to put my son in St.Georges, Mussorie which ranks 3rd in India. He studied there for 2 months and we had to bring him out as he was unable to cope up with the boarding life style and plus we came to know that G.D.Goenka branch has come to Purnea. Now what I actually want to say from above story is that my kids are loving in here and all I can hear is just praises from them , be it studies, extra curricular activities, food and last but not the least the environment, care and special attention each of the kids are getting. Thank you so much for making our Purnea proud. With Best regards, Ruchi Pharasi Mother of Karmanya Dev Pharasi
