The Secretary & Correspondent’s message

Our society lacks people with civic sense and good morals. We can’t say that people lack these qualities. They are unable to identify and implement them. It is their absolute ignorance and negligence. Education that properly taught provides us with wisdom which passes through the dark corners of ignorance and illuminates the consciousness. Education is what our society calls for.

The motto of an ideal educational institute is to teach academics and attend to wholesome all-round development of the students. Academic excellence is just a ticket to the opportunities but survival rate at the jobs are getting sturdy due to the swift changes in the companies. Taking all these into consideration, we have formulated holistic approach in all aspects of the curriculum. At intermediate level, we made our mark. I would like to say that Nalanda has brought about noteworthy changes in the field of education during all these years. The changes have been responsible for providing a dynamic thrust to the system and taking it forward by leaps and bounds. It is our endeavor to keep up the tempo and sustain the value added advantage our students have over the others.
