Education has always been considered a noble profession, for it is a process that helps to condition the human mind in its formative years, provide a meaning and purpose in life and enable youth to choose an avenue that will lead to their future career path.
"There is one quality, which one must possess to win
And that is definiteness of purpose, the knowledge of
what one wants and a burning desire to possess it"
So also our goals of excellence in thought word and deed can be achieved, only with relentless determination and a sense of integrity. I wish to earnestly exhort all of you to rededicate yourselves to zealously work towards “In Pursuit of Excellence”.
Excellence is our prime endeavour and we joyfully strive for excellence in all that we do. The deep passion and desire to make a difference in the lives of the children continues. This encourages us to venture into newer territories in our bid to nurture more children with moral values and deep love for our culture ensuring holistic development and academic excellence.
Encouraged by the benevolent leaders of Bahrain and with its cosmopolitan and fraternal approach ‘The New Indian School’ continues to create an environment that is conducive to growth that makes an educational distinct in its character and style.
As I continue to explain this educational ship, I owe my sincere thanks to the management for their support and guidance. I appreciate my staff for their dedication and hardwork and the parents for their continued patronage.
Wishing all the youngsters a promising future ahead.
Director & Principal
