It is an honour and a privilege to be the Principal of Royal Academy, the school that stands for excellence and continuously sets the highest standards. The importance of education in the life of an individual cannot be overstated. It shapes individuals in their formative years and imbues them with values that would govern all their choices in life. It is said “If you are planning for a year, sow rice; if you are planning for a decade, plant trees; if you are planning for a lifetime, educated people”. Indeed, one can even say that the quality of education will determine the destiny of the nation.
For me, education does not mean providing answers. It means equipping the pupil with the means to find the answers for himself and within himself. Education empowers students to discover themselves who they are as people. Within each student is a doctor, an engineer, a teacher, a social activist, a sports person, an environmentalist, a poet, an author or an economist. The teachers support them in channelizing resources vis-à-vis their dreams thus, sustainably generating civilized and productive human capital for serving our motherland.
I have witnessed in our student an unparalleled knowledge base, a vibrant dynamism, an acute consciousness about the world around them, a focused ambition and a sustained commitment. I am also fortunate to have an experienced and committed team, which has brought the school to its present stature. I, along with my team of silent workers and dedicated faculty, intend to build on this strong foundation and raise the standards in all spheres, to the zenith. My aim is not only to be an able administrator but also to be a friend, philosopher and guide to the students. I assure you that my doors will always remain open to the students and their parents for any suggestion or guidance.
