Namaste to all…
“To be successful in life what you need is education, not literacy and degrees”, said Munshiji – the founder of Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan institutions. The educational institutions of Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan stand out as the monumental examples of the perfect blend of education and culture.
Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan Irinjalakuda aims at educating students for leading a harmonious and effective life in a globalized society by letting noble thoughts come to them from every side.
Our mission is to impart holistic education through an integrated approach to develop them into intellectually, spiritually, emotionally and socially responsible citizens with belief in self through ‘ we’ rather than I ‘.
It is with immense pride and pleasure that I present before this august gathering the Annual Report which showcases the activities and achievements of our school during the academic year 2022- 23.
Academic excellence is the thriving force behind the success of every institution. It is desired by students, teachers and parents alike. Perseverance can take us to reach this goal. The sincere efforts of students in the CBSE Exams brought laurels to the school.
Our school topper in class XII Board Exam was Aparna Unniparambath of Commerce stream with 99%.To add to the glory, her academic performance and results made us grab the 3rd position among the CBSE schools in Thrissur district. In Science stream Ananwitha Krishna secured the first position with a score of 96.8℅. In FMM Gayathri V with 93.4%. Out of 95 students appeared for class 12, 57 secured distinction and 35 secured first class and 3 secured second class.
In class 10 board exam Abhinav K Rajesh came as the topper with 98.6℅ and Gesmi Greenson secured the second position with 97.8 ℅ and Bhavya came third with 97.6 ℅. It’s a remarkable feat that 10 of our class 10 students secured centum in different subjects.
Before I begin the detailing of annual report let me bring your notice to the Saraswati idol in our compound. As you all see , Goddess Saraswati – the epitome of knowledge has got incarnated to make us uplift to the higher levels of real knowledge. That was a positive ray which helped us regain the hopeful days after the dark days of pandemic.
