    We conducted a workshop here in the celebration of the "World Arts Day". Based on my 2 nights stay, interaction with students and staff, looking at the infrastructure and the emphasis that's placed on an overall development of the students, I can say it's definitely an institution where one can expect their wards to develop into responsible citizens of tomorrow.

    Spent 10 years here .. everything I am, I owe it to the beautiful opportunities this home provided. The journey won't be easy.
