I am nani of two boys Dhruv Singh std 5b and Dhairya Singh Prep 2 B. I would like to convey my heartfelt thanks and appreciation to all the teachers, administration, IT staff and others for the great devotion shown and efforts made.

During this lockdown every person has face challenges both at home and on the workfront. Teachers have cheerfully shouldered new responsibilities and kept children engaged and conducted classes in a super efficient manner with the inputs of all others .

AVM school is a boon for children ..they receive a rounded education, learn their roots, and study without constant stress of exams and achievements. This pattern of learning where even little ones are encouraged to speak in class on various topics gives them confidence and the ability to think things through and express ideas clearly.

Bless all of you …no words can describe the efforts made and goals reached .

Dear Pooja Miss ,

I would like to take this opportunity to thank u for all the efforts u take to make the online class so fun for my little one. It’s not an easy job to keep kids alert during an online class. But you make the class so interesting with different activities that the kids also like it .
Specially the fun Friday activity which Vivian ( my son in prep 1C) thoroughly enjoys and looks forward to. Each activity is so very well thought and executed . Kids really enjoy it. Today’s fun Friday , about Mumbai , was so educative and fun . The pictures that were clicked with the kids at diff locations in Mumbai , was such a brilliant idea. The kids were so thrilled to see themselves in the pic . And you must have really gone thru lot of efforts to make them for the kids.
Thank you so much dear teacher for all the hard work and efforts that you take . It really means a lot to us.

Thanks a lot Pooja miss 

Thanks & Regards

Dear Bhumika miss and Shilpi miss,

Riyana looks forward to her classes everyday and doesn’t even want a holiday on Saturday, Sunday only because of the awesome teachers she has. The amount of effort you’ll put in to make each activity memorable and help them with learning better is truly commendable. The activities are not only educative, but also interactive and enjoyable which makes Riyana even more excited to be a part of the class. The classes are so holistic covering daily routines, book knowledge, practical stuff and even spiritual aspects. As much as the preparation seems like an effort for the parents sometimes, it is nothing compared to the innovative efforts you’ll are putting in and its worth it to see the excitment on the children’s face for doing the acitvities with the preparations.

So thank you very much Bhumika miss and Shilpi miss. You’ll are definitely a very positive influence in our lives

Just as a side note, my daughter is so fond of you’ll both that it is so convenient to get tasks done from her using your names. So thank you for that too!!

Thank you,

Dear Principal Madam,

My daughter Akakshari Sheregar studies in Playschool A. I would like to share my appreciation for the wonderful teachers of pre-primary, each of who have shown exemplary aptitude towards making online schooling a cherished experience for the kids.

My older child, Avyay Sheregar studies in class 2 A. I have admired the pre-primary teachers from his pre-primary days. The teachers have always been very approachable for children and parents, making children feel instantly comfortable, involved and connected. 

But the unique situation that we are in right now with COVID19, I was wondering how the teachers would manage connecting with a new set of children who have not had physical interaction with them and hence, have not yet built that bond. 

I must say that all the teachers, led by Bhumika Miss, have accepted this unique challenge so well.  In a short span of time, they have made a connection with all the children. They have woven conceptual learning into stories, created fantastic props and characters, curated unique and fun activities every single week. A special mention for the beautiful props that Shilpi Miss created for the rainy season and her portrayal of Krishna. 

They have also ensured that the children have a well-rounded education by not only including academics, but also adding yoga, breathing exercises, general knowledge, dance and music into the curriculum.

A big thank you to all the teachers for using new technology and making online classes fun and interesting for our children. And a big salute to all the effort that goes into designing and curating each class and making it an enjoyable learning experience for our children.

Warm Regards from a Happy AVM Mother,

Shraddha Sheregar

Mother of Akakshari Sheregar (Playschool A)

Bhumika Ma’am & Shilpi Ma’am 

Words alone cannot express our gratitude for all the time you have spent giving our children the comfort of learning from home. Though the times are tough you all have taken great care and made learning fun. All the story telling, activities and celebrating the festivals with limited resources have made the sessions really exciting for the children. Thank you so much for your skilled teaching and patience. You’re one of those very special teachers that in the future our children will look back and remember with fondness and appreciation.

Dear teachers and AVM management.

My daughter, Anaisha Desai, is currently studying in prep 2B in AVM juhu.

I want to thank all the teachers and the management from the bottom of my heart for taking the initiative of online studies and making it a truly enjoyable experience for the little ones and Anaisha really looks forward to start her day with this routine.It is amazing how the teachers have accommodated to the online method of teaching and yet managed to engage these young minds so effectively.

A few highlights from our classroom looks like:-
1. Fun fridays and Curiousity Club
2.Music sessions from Surabhi teacher
3.Learning new dictionary word every Tuesdays
4.Opportunities for children to express themselves everyday to boost up their confidence and moral.
5. Online Class library which enables the children to read along with the teacher.

We understand that even the teachers have to manage a lot at home, like each one of us, plus prepare for class the next day, it is a difficult task, but it’s really commendable how well they manage!!

A big Thank you to PoojaChibber teacher and Bhumika miss, Principal madam and management for the wonderful efforts !!

I want to thank all the teachers and the management from the bottom of my heart for taking the initiative of online studies. 

Earlier, we used to send our kids to school and not even know the kind of hard work put in behind each and every concept to the instilled in a child’s mind. Now that you all have got the school to our very own homes, we are actually witnessing the hard work, patience and determination and dedication of all our teachers. It is honestly quite commendable!!! 

Menakshi teacher- The way you start the class with your bright smile and take the kids for a virtual tour to such amazing places is really  quite innovative and interesting. Lakshya really looks forward to starting his day with this routine. 

Charmie teacher – We find you pretty charming and bubbly. The way you interact with the kids is very cute. Lakshya loves your bunny rabbit character..Also, each and every creative class that u conduct is quite interesting and the art work made in the end turns out very very pretty. Thank you teacher for making the sessions so interesting!! 

Pooja teacher- Whether it is teaching yoga or conducting quizzes and games or narrating  stories, your way of communicating with the kids is so smooth and relatable. We love the way you show experiments and explain the concept to the kids. 

Surbhi teacher- Thank you for the fun music sessions.. The songs are quite catchy and hummable by the kids.

Special thanks to Bhoomika teacher for ensuring the smooth conduct of our sessions. She’s a big support to all of us, as always!!! 

Thank you so much teachers and management for putting in so much effort for our kids.

Respected Teachers, 

I would like to thank you all for taking a lot of efforts for online school. It’s definitely not an easy job to prepare for this. In Spite of all house work during lockdown, all the teachers are doing a commendable job. 

The activities, yoga, PT, dance and everything that can grab kids attention and also keep them involved by asking queries and riddles is something my children (Aarav &Arnav )enjoy.

Though children miss their classmates, which we can’t help in the current scenario, this is best the school is doing for them.

Thankyou Sunitateacher, Priti teacher, Deepateacher, and all the other teachers for your dedication and love.

Good Morning Principal Madam!

I NituSaraf, mother of AdhyanSaraf of std 1″A” of your school, want to share my gratitude towards Hetal Miss, Vijeta Miss and Pooja Miss for the marvellous efforts they are putting in for our kids. We as parents are very happy with the way they teach, the amount of efforts they are making to ensure the kids learn even in this pandemic situation. 

I really appreciate the way the teachers are including activities such as art so as to de-stress the kids from continuously watching the screen, while also making them do yoga and other dancing activities which doesn’t let them be seated at one place for long.

Thanking you

M/O Adhyan Saraf,

Seeing the online class being conducted so well, I sometimes wonder that I should also secure admission in your school. It feels so good to answer certain question and for a moment i forget that i am competing with 9 year old students.
But it’s a very well managed class.
God bless all.

Respected principal and class I teachers,


I, Sumit Gupta, parent of student Vedant Gupta studying in class I C, am writing to you to appreciate the recent initiative to start virtual classes for Class I.

I wanted to highlight the fact that all three sections have been combined has resulted in multiple teachers spending quality time with the students – this results in students learning many more new things especially on this virtual media and breaks the monotony.

Additionally, we will be happy to help the school, if required in any manner. 



Sumit Gupta

Parent of Vedant Gupta ,

Respected Principal Ma’am,


My dear son Meherzen Mehta is currently studying in class 2B under Hiral Sampat Ma’am.

Due to this pandemic school has come up with online learning sessions via Google Meet. I can’t help but write an appreciation letter for all of you for coming up with such wonderful process of learning.

Our dear teachers are putting so much of hardwork in making things easy, fun and enjoyable. I can see their hard-work everyday by their everyday PPT’s, YouTube videos, games, activities. Alot of thought and efforts has gone into it and it’s just wonderful.

Teachers are very interactive with children and just know how to engage not only children but us parents too. I’m learning std 2 yet again in new perspective with my son and I’m loving it.

I wish I was a student of AVM to study under such great teachers. Teachers are not only very creativity but they also have lot of patience towards children and they explain everything so well. 

I truly appreciate their zest for teaching.  I know and understand that even they have household chores, cooking etc still they are pulling it off sowell.. I have no words to express my gratitude to everyone.

My special thanks to Namrata Daswani ma’am who always keeps checking on children in between. Hiral ma’am, Neeta ma’am, Prachi ma’am everyone on board are just tooo good. Hats off to everyone. Reena ma’am is trying her best and learning new technology which is very much appreciable, very nice of her.

Many special thanks to our Dear Principal Ma’am Mrs. Damanjit Kaur Sabherwal. Congratulations to you ma’am for having such great team of teachers. Highly appreciate your personal touch to answer many parents personally. Thank you!


Thank you everyone,

Rashmi Mehta


Hello Principal Ma’am and all the teachers,


I am AnishaChhabriya, mother of AaravChhabriya of Prep II C. I want to give you all a big round of applause for all the hard work and efforts you all are putting to make the online learning a fun experience for the kids. I can imagine how much brainstorming and pre-planning would be going to prepare for one class. Kudos to you all for that. My son, who was extremely bored and had become a bit cranky during the lockdown, now looks forward to his morning classes. He doesn’t like Saturdays and Sundays anymore :p. These classes have brought back the much needed routine in the kids’ lives.

 The storyboard story by Charmy teacher was a major hit amongst the students. Her voice modulations had the kids hooked. Making their own paints and doing the dot painting with her today was a thrill for them. Even though she is new for our kids, the way she showers so much love on them, they have become very fond of her and look forward to seeing her each morning .

Kids are loving the activities that Pooja teacher does. They especially loved the sandwich making. So many of them made many more sandwiches post that session. Even the scooping objects from water was a lot of fun. 

The virtual tours by Meenakshi teacher are so interesting and informative. Watching the sea life, visiting the TajMahal from inside and the jungle safari made the kids super excited and happy. 

Anjali teacher is also very sweet and is ready to fill in instantly in case of any technical glitches. She talks to the kids very lovingly. 

Please accept my heartfelt gratitude for doing so much for the kids. Its greatly appreciated. You have my full support.

I Lavina Chadha, mother of Krisha Chadha studying in Prep 1 B in your esteemed school, wants to congratulate your teachers and you for the exemplary work you all are conducting in regards to the online schooling.

The efforts and the precision with which the teachers are working with the kids is commendable.

Thank you for all your valuable time and the precious endeavour.

Thank you
Yours faithfully

Respected madam,

Today Nivid’s school reopened. Stepping into primary section was a milestone. We were introduced to his new class teachers and subject teachers. And we missed Bhumika mam, Rushali mam and Pooja mam a lot. For Nivid, AVM school has always revolved around three of them and hence we had to explain him about his new class teacher and subject head.

Words can not express our gratitude for  the care, love and attention all the pre-primary teachers have shown towards Nivid. 

Bhumika ma’am, You have been pivotal in giving us good and quality feedback about him, which helped us to bring in early intervention. 

Bhumika teacher, Pooja teacher, Rushali teacher understood him so well and supported him so much. Charmi teacher, Usha teacher, Surabhi teacher.. May it be everyday classes, field trips, sports day, sound of music day or any events. You all understood him so well and supported him so much. We feel that Nivid is so fortunate to have you all as his teachers. He loves school because of you all.

Special mention to Sakshi teacher from AYM who not only supported Nivid, but to us too. She became our friend, philosopher and guide and encouraged (and still keeps encouraging) us as a family to pass all hurdles. He might feel it difficult to express, but being his parents we can understand how deeply he likes you all.

The work that you all are doing in shaping the generation is outstanding. Practicing what you preach is something that we have seen you all doing, and even during lockdown you all kept giving us hope and encouragement through your lovely messages and videos. It was really very thoughtful of you all.

 He is stepping into primary section today a bigger, better, brighter little boy in no small part to the role that each of you has played in his development. And we would love to keep sharing his progress with you all going forward also.

Thank you all! And thanks to respected Principal Mrs.DamanjitKaurSabherwal ma’am for your support and guidance to all teachers, students and parents. We are really proud to be a part of AVM family.

Warm regards,

Respected Maam,

I Neha Binani mother of Shreyansh and HarshvardhanBinani studying in 10th B and 7th B respectively at Arya VidyaMandirschoolJuhu is very happy and wholeheartedly would like to Appreciate and thank all the Teachers of AVM JUHU. 

The teachers in this lockdown time, not only took all the best possible efforts to come online and continued the school but also did a Fabulous teaching

My Children had a spark in their eye, and were so happy to see the teachers and friends.

My son Harshvardhan from 7th grade requested his grandmother ” to make a sandwich without the perimeter and only the area of the bread to be used”

And we soon realised how innovative, to apply Math.

This certainly made us believed that all the efforts the teachers are taking , students very well are understanding. All the subjects were very well explained with PPT and all the doubts too were cleared. This must be so challenging for the teacher too. 

With some internet problem  Shreyansh from grade 10 was late to join the class, in no time I had a call.

This is appreciating that the teachers are very attentive and are concern for each n every child

Really I am a very proud and a happy parent. Glad my children study in such an institute where they are being nurtured so well. 

Would like to finish my letter  with this small poem 

Lockdown A tough time for All……

Excited were kids, when the Teaching Call……….

To see their teachers & be with them ,

They had a beautiful Smile…….

OH !!! When will the school reopen 

They are eagerly waiting for that Time …….

Thanking You

Yours Faithfully

Respected Principal Mam, 

Warm greetings..

I had the opportunity to attend the session on ‘Sound of Music’ conducted for pre primary children this week on March 4,2020 (Prep 1A).

I would like to say that it is an excellent program started by the school for our young minds.

The way music helps in stimulating as well as controlling our brain was very rightly shown through the various activities that were conducted. 

Thanks to all the teachers once again and a special mention to Bhumika Miss and our class teacher Bharati Miss for their endless efforts in taking care of our children everyday.

The respected principal and
all the wonderful teachers of Pre primary

I want to take this opportunity to thank all of you for grooming our children so well. Today I, as a parent of Sarvagjna Doshi, studying in Prep II C , had the privilege of attending the “Sound of Music” , which was an awesomely conducted program. We all were re enlightened about the beauty that music can bring into shaping the character of our children. I can write endlessly about how impressed I was with the idea of teaching beats and imagination to our children . The letter would be incomplete without thanking Bhumika teacher , Charmy teacher and Pooja teacher.


Dolly Doshi

(Parent of Sarvagnya Doshi Prep II C)

Dear Principal Mam,

I would love to congratulate all the teachers for holding an amazing activity “Sounds Of Music – Parent-Child” scheduled today for Pre-Primary 1 – C division. It was one of a kind session and a brilliant one. I enjoyed it so much and the fact that I could do it with my daughter made this day unforgettable.

My daughter, Divyanka has been humming and tapping/clapping catching beats at home while the music is on. I always wondered where she was learning this from. And today, I know that she is paying attention to what’s being taught and enjoying it thoroughly.

I want to express my sincere gratitude to Pratiksha Ms. and Bharati Ms along with Meenakshi Ms, Trainee Teacher – Nikita Ms. who held the session so patiently and kept the children and parents engaged in a fun way.

I’m so thrilled about the wonderful experience. I adore you so much and appreciate all your care and commitment to our child’s early learning and education.

Thanks and regards,

Komal Narang

(M/o Divyanka Narang Prep- 1 - C)

Dear Ma’am

This is an event worth sharing usually we keep telling him not use shower
while bathing and use the bucket and tumbler, which I fill and keep ready
for him to bathe. At times he follows our instructions, at times he doesn’t
and we do this every day irrespective of he follows our instructions or no.
As a set schedule, today, I fill his bucket and call him to bathe.
But today, after wetting his body while applying soap he says, “close the
shower mummy, I will use the water in bucket to clean myself”.

Obediently I do as he says and from within I feel proud of myself for
choosing AVM for him and feel amazed how the teachers (Charmy teacher,
Amrita teacher, Bhumika teacher and all the Pre-Primary section teachers
did, what we couldn’t do for so many years.

Gratitude to Principal Madam for letting our teachers explore, research and
inculcate values that will last our kids’ lifetime.

And while drafting this email my heart is filled with emotions, thinking on
how positively our kids are being prepared not only to face the world, but
also to resolve issues.


Nandita Shee Deb

Excellent efforts put in by staff and all the wonderful students. Everyone performed with grace and perfection.

Dear Madam/Sir, 

As it is rightly said that many of the greatest achievements in the world were accomplished by tired and discouraged people who kept on working- the Teachers, in this case. 

The concept, the choreography, the colours that popped on stage, the costumes, the song selection had stupendous effect on stage. It was a mind-blowing performance by the children today which could not have been possible without the hard work of the teachers and volunteers. Special mention to Afrin miss and Jaee for their unbelievable efforts. 

I express my sincere gratitude to the Primary division of AVM Juhu for keeping us enchanted throughout the morning today. 

Thanks and regards, 


(M/O- Siddharth Khurana- 1 B)

 Balsatsang is a good platform for our kids to overcome stage fear and to face the audience.  Here each and every child from the class gets an opportunity to perform before audiences. I remember, in my school days, we had only few selected children to perform on annual day. 
            The best thing is every year , there is different theme , new ideas which is not repeated. Through this performance, kids also convey lot of messages. Everything was perfectly fit for their character. Right from the costume, the character looks, make up, the props.
            Am very happy to see all kids saying their long speech before audience so confidently and that too without forgetting. For all this, a big thank you and hats off to the teachers who took lot of efforts to make Balsatsang a grand success. 


Dnyanda Vannier

(M/O Neel Vannier 2C)

Dear Mam

This is about the recently concluded Balsatsang of playschool, grades 1 and 2. It was an exhilarating and gripping event. I wish to congratulate principal mam, the school, teachers and volunteers for putting up such a well-organized show with a moving and pertinent theme.

A special note of thanks for Afrin mam who worked relentlessly to ensure that the show is a success. She was extremely mindful of children’s comfort and oversaw all the preparations with diligence. I also thank Jaee for a beautiful choreography. Our kids looked so joyous and confident on the stage.

This truly was a delightful experience.

Thanks and Regards,

Dear All,

It was a lovely show put up with a lot of efforts taken by the teachers. I love the fact that each child participates and the theme gives out an important message each time. This is the 5th Balsatsang I have attended as a parent and AVM does magic with each program that it organizes. The school’s importance on discipline, all round development and ensuring that our child grows up to be a good human being is what differentiates it from other schools. I am very happy my child is a part of the AVM family.


Khadija Fakhri

(M/O Burhanuddin Fakri – 2C)

Dear all,

Would like to congratulate the entire team of teachers, student volunteers, parent volunteers, school staff & last but not least, our fabulous kids for putting up such a wonderful program.

The main theme was very thoughtfully chosen & beautifully executed with perfection.

It had all elements of a perfect blockbuster:

-> a wonderful plot (the theme)

-> an impactful structure (the design & sequence of events with apt costumes, audio-visuals, songs & dance sequences)

-> superb direction (by our able & encouraging teachers)

-> powerful narrative with dramatic & tasteful dialogues (delivered with so much ease & confidence)

-> compelling characters (executed by our little ones perfectly to the T)

Sitting in the audience, we thoroughly enjoyed every moment of the whole program; it was definitely a Sunday morning treat for us !

As an AVM parent, it’s extremely heartening that the school is dedicated & committed in instilling confidence & great values in our kids, which are actually life lessons for all of us.

I hereby once again thank & appreciate the school for investing so much time & energy in helping us bring up children with good character & integrity.

Warm Regards,

Nandini & Prasad Sankhe

(Parents of Arjun Sankhe, Class II-B)

Dear Principal, Subject Heads and Teachers ,

Fantastic show today by the children and wonderful theme selected. One of the things that stood out apart from the talent and hard work was the showcasing of the unsung heroes and do- gooders in your Niyamsection . 

I’ve always appreciated the format of the Balsatsang  . The brevity actually drives home the message more effectively-  though organising several of these programmes  understandably requires more effort and investment of time . 

Congratulations on a job well done and thank you!

I am nani of two boys Dhruv Singh Std 5b and Dhairya Singh Prep 2 B. I would like to convey my heartfelt thanks and appreciation to all the teachers, administration, IT staff and others for the great devotion shown and efforts made.

During this lockdown every person has face challenges both at home and on the work front. Teachers have cheerfully shouldered new responsibilities and kept children engaged and conducted classes in a super-efficient manner with the inputs of all others .

AVM school is a boon for children. They receive a rounded education, learn their roots, and study without constant stress of exams and achievements. This pattern of learning where even little ones are encouraged to speak in class on various topics gives them confidence and the ability to think things through and express ideas clearly.

Bless all of you …no words can describe the efforts made and goals reached .

Respected Maam,

I Neha Binani mother of Shreyansh and Harshvardhan Binani studying in 10th B and 7th B respectively at Arya Vidya Mandir School Juhu is very happy and wholeheartedly would like to Appreciate and thank all the Teachers of AVM JUHU.
The teachers in this lockdown time, not only took all the best possible efforts to come online and continued the school but also did a Fabulous teaching
My Children had a spark in their eye, and were so happy to see the teachers and friends.
My son Harshvardhan from 7th grade requested his grandmother ” to make a sandwich without the perimeter and only the area of the bread to be used”
And we soon realised how innovative, to apply Math.
This certainly made us believed that all the efforts the teachers are taking , students very well are understanding. All the subjects were very well explained with PPT and all the doubts too were cleared. This must be so challenging for the teacher too.
With some internet problem Shreyansh from grade 10 was late to join the class, in no time I had a call.
This is appreciating that the teachers are very attentive and are concern for each n every child
Really I am a very proud and a happy parent. Glad my children study in such an institute where they are being nurtured so well.

Would like to finish my letter with this small poem

Lockdown A tough time for All……
Excited were kids, when the Teaching Call……….
To see their teachers & be with them ,
They had a beautiful Smile…….
OH !!! When will the school reopen
They are eagerly waiting for that Time …….

Thanking You
Yours Faithfully

Dear Teachers,

Our culture has always accorded the highest pedestal to teachers, even going as far as keeping them above God Himself…as said by Kabirdas Ji in his famous couplet, “Guru Gobind Dou khade, Kaakelaa goon paaye…..Balihaari Guru aapne  Govind deeyo bataye”(God and my teacher are both in front of me, and I wonder whom to greet first…The teacher deserves greater respect as he introduces me to Him).

Even before the start of the battle of Kurukshetra, Arjuna was confused if it was right to wage war on Guru Dronacharya, the teacher that had taught him everything that he knew and flaunted in warfare, even to the peril of knowingly sacrificing potentially greater archers like Eklavya. Even though the battle was for Dharma, the thought of firing in the direction of his teacher was something he just couldn’t do. It took the entire discourse of Bhagvad Gita to convince Arjuna to take up arms against his teacher only for the greater good of society.

Though the modern times have led to the dilution of these virtues,the tradition is kept alive by dedicated, hard working and sincere teachers we meet in practically every school, college, coaching class and even in workplaces. These are the set of teachers whose influence on their wards cannot be measured by their own success, but by the success of their pupils. Every pupil is nurtured diligently with care and determination to become successful in not only their sphere of work, but also in shaping a humane and peaceful society as a whole.

We come from a family of teachers and have seen the immense pride my family has taken in pointing out the successful students who were taught by my grandfather and my aunts and vouch for them seeing their own success in the success of each one of their own pupils. The bond lives on far longer than we can ever imagine.

We consider our daughter, Viya, lucky to have started her education in an institution such as AryaVidyaMandir where values are given so much importance and are the very background of the teaching philosophy.

Bhumika ma’am and Shilpi ma’am (and the entire teaching staff) are working hard day in and day out to ensure such little kids are attentive on a digital screen, for almost an hour. This is a miracle you carry out everyday, with seeming ease and panache.It speaks volumes about the behind the scenes preparation and seriousness you must attribute to your profession, and which is so heartening and comforting for parents like us.

We are truly grateful to teachers like you that give us confidence that our children will grow to become successful individuals in a harmonious and peaceful society. It is teachers like you that make it possible. 

Thanks a lot for all that you do.

Dear Pritima’am,

My son, Arnav Koppikar was overwhelmed with your kind words after his performance for moment of joy. He enjoys watching and playing cricket, but with current situation, he is unable to pursue training for the same. Hence, he willingly agreed to talk on his favourite cricketer.

He is undergoing AYM sessions with Pritima’am, and we can a see lot of positive changes in him. 

With your encouraging words, Arnav was motivated to take further interest in doing his daily work.

Moment of joy is a wonderful platform for our children.

Thankyou so much.

Namaste Damanjit ma’am,

Hope all good at your end.

I parent of Adhhiraaj A Varma of class 3A, would really like to appreciate Afrin Miss and Priyanka Miss of having being handling the online school, 3rd grade very efficiently, gracefully and have been finding innovative ways to involve the kids in much effective possible ways with much discipline.

I being the CR (class rep) of 3A can also echo the same for my whole class.

We are glad to have Afrin miss and Priyanka miss as a part of 3rd std.

Though kids are surely missing going to school but these teachers are trying their best to not let them miss the excitement and keeping up with the festive celebrations also is a very innovative way to keep the kids involved.

Today’s Ganesh Chaturthi Celebration was so much fun for all of us.I would personally like to thank Afrin Miss to give this opportunity to Adhhiraaj for today’s Dance performance, it’s a beautiful way to involve the kids at the same time be encouraging and motivating the kids in this lockdown times. 

Thanks for giving us this opportunity.

Hats off to the teachers.

Thank you

Namaste Sunita Mam,

Thankyou for encouraging our kids. All the children performed so well and now they are comfortable with the online school. 

We always like this ‘Moment of Joy’ program in our school, which makes children confident and comfortable to face the crowd.

This time it was not only 1 class kids watching, but the entire 4th grade plus the parents and all 3 class teachers. 

Thankyou once again for grooming our children in every way possible.

Dear Bhumika Miss and Shilpi Miss,

We would like to convey our heartfelt gratitude for putting in so much effort and hardwork for making each class so interesting and enjoyable for Dhruvi and all the kids of playschool A. Usually I attend the class with Dhruvi but on the day of Janmashtami, my husband attended and believe me, he had such an amazing time during the class that the whole day he kept on reiterating that teachers do such a amazing job and how much fun he had. It went on to such an extent that at night I saw the recorded version out of curiosity. Truly, it was such an amazing session.

Each of the classes are so well curated and captivating, especially during fun Fridays and  festivals that kids not only gain knowledge but also have fun. The concept based sessions have brought better understanding and Dhruvi really looks forward to school, even on weekends. We both thank you from the bottom of our hearts and appreciate the hard work put in by every teacher and bringing in a whole different level of concept learning for kids.

Thank you

Dear Teachers of Playschool A,

These last 5 months have been extremely unsettling and interesting times in our lives. We went through some challenging times in our personal environment.  We also welcomed our 2nd child 2.5 months ago 🙂

Managing our daughter (Samara) in this complicated environment along with her brother is still 1 of the most challenging tasks we have faced till date. 🙂

When classes started, we were excited &skeptical on how effective online school would be. Enrolling our child with you was 1 of the best decisions we have made till date.

The passion, commitment & poise you all bring to the classroom is nothing short of a miracle.

The impact you both have had on our daughter is beautiful to watch. We now truly understand the role of early educators in shaping good humans for the future.

In an environment of hyper active parents & extreme uncertainty in your own environment, you have demonstrated to us what true professionalism & loving your work means.

The background work you all do to research, plan & coordinate these activities & classes we still are not able to imagine.

We both love attending your classes along with Samara & are learning a lot too :).

Sometimes we both wish we could be kids again & go to school 🙂

We are truly fortunate to have you as Samara’s teachers.

Loads of love

Samara's Parents

I would specially love to mention the fun Fridays which Krisha looks forward every week more than anything else.  The efforts taken by the teachers to plan and execute the same can be seen on the screen. The class teacher of Prep 1 B, Amrita Ma’am pulls off each and every detail like a master.
Thank you very much for making the experience of online school pleasant for both the kids and the parents.

Thanking you

Respected Mrs Jyoti Kumar and Mrs Smita Sulakhe,  

As proud parents of two AVM boys ..Anshuman and Aarayman I wanted to give my vote of gratitude and thanks to the entire team at AVM  Schools, in handling the COVID environment and ensuring our childrens’ education steps up in such a tough background.

The school has embraced Online education fantastically.  I too have been working from home and online though my job comes under essentials currently.  Anshuman does his Online teach-in, in the same room as I do my office work; so I can at times see the amount of effort the school teachers are putting to make it a success.

At times I have seen two teachers per lecture, No cancellations, everything smooth running and Ravi Sir around for any hiccups. I think though the school is open for 4 hours, the effort teachers may be taking to prepare themselves for these sessions may be more than 2-3 times the classes are on. 

The yoga class keeps the kids active, I see Anshuman spring up

The online school site has high quality notes and worksheets which make me wonder if I would need buy any textbooks. The “To Do’s” are clearly improving the kids’ knowledge of using computers as well, just by accessing them.

Due Kudos to the entire school and please Keep up the great job. 

God bless and Stay Safe and healthy

  Proud AVM Parents

Dr. Sushma and Vinay

Parents of Anshuman and Aarayman

Dear Mam

I am writing to share my daughter’s experience of the ongoing classes. She is in grade 2 and is thoroughly enjoying these sessions. The classes are a perfect mix of brain teasers, physical activity, academic instruction and loads of fun. All the teachers are doing a commendable job.  Their commitment and care is beyond belief. I request you to please continue the classes, although session hours may be tweaked as considered suitable by the staff.

Thanks and regards

Dear Principal ma’am,


We are writing this email to express our heartfelt gratitude to you and your team of teachers who are working so hard to ensure that our kids are not deprived of learning in this period of pandemic which has affected the entire world. 

We would like to sincerely thank Vijeta miss, Hetal miss, Pooja miss, Hindi and Art teacher, Yoga teacher, P.T. sirs Desmond and Yadav Sir, Ekta miss and all other teachers who are making learning fun for standard 1.

They are so kind, patient and caring and it shows in their teaching style. Always smiling, explaining the rules with kindness and exercising discipline at the same time too, its a pleasure to watch school at home.

We understand that even the teachers have to manage the show at home, like each one of us, plus prepare for class the next day, it is a difficult task, but it’s really commendable how well they manage!! 

In a time where everything is so uncertain, having an online learning environment at home is giving a structure to the child’s otherwise erratic schedule.

Thank you once again to you and the entire team! 

Thanks and regards,

Dear Principal Madam

RSB Arya Vidya Mandir school,



My daughter SaeshaBaid is a student of class 4-B in your school. This is an appreciation email, applauding the outstanding efforts of teachers – Ms.Deepa Ranade, Ms. Sunita, Ms. Priti, Ms. Reena, Ms. Deepa Jha, Ms. Surbhi and Ms. Smita.

It is amazing how the teachers have accommodated to the online method of teaching and yet managed to engage these young minds so effectively. Although there can be no equivalent to regular school where they can interact with teachers and peers in person, the online school set up,- as arranged by the school management is a wonderful medium to continue learning even during these trying times. 

Teachers are making use of relevant graphic aids and wonderful activities to make the sessions lively and interesting. And I am sure as time passes and students become comfortable more formal work will be included. Although the strength of class is huge, I appreciate the way teachers are trying to maintain appropriate discipline during the session with uniform dressing, compulsory muting of microphones, and following of time schedules. Letting children participate by calling their names individually goes a long way in motivating them and keeping them connected. Being home bound has made extra screen time inevitable but it is commendable that the school authorities are ensuring regular breaks and yoga for fitness.

Having online school has given Saesha the opportunity to connect with teachers and friends and has also helped in maintaining a meaningful routine.

Thank you teachers, principal madam and management for the wonderful efforts


Sneha Baid

Parents of Saesha Baid (4 B)

Respected Principal Ma’am, 


Hope this mail finds you and our larger AVM family of teachers, didi’s and everyone safe and well.  ️

It was day one of E learning for our son Vidur Subramaniam who is in Prep 1 and our daughter Swara Subramaniam who is in grade 2. 

The kids had an early dinner and went into bed early last night as they were so excited to meet their friends and teachers today. This goes to show how much they have loved their time at AVM! And kudos to the teachers and management for that. 

Through this pandemic AVM has shown utmost sensitivity, empathy and support to the parents and children. Whether it was the manner in which the letter requesting for fees was worded or the meditation videos that were being shared, you were thinking of helping us all through these new unprecedented times that we are all trying to deal with and get accustomed to. 

Heartfelt thanks for everything that has been done to support each of the families whose children are a part of AVM! 

Special thanks to Bhumika and Namrata ma’am and their teams from pre primary and primary for all the effort that has gone into today’s E learning sessions. 

Yes there were technology glitches, yes parents were learning to tell their children to keep themselves on mute, but there were far more smiles and dancing and yoga breathing and peace and calm and joy in the sessions! And that’s what matters at the end of the day. 

We are all in this together. Please let us know as parents go we can supply you and the teachers in the endeavour to E school the children. 


Thanking you, 

Yours Sincerly, 

Suraksha and Vijay Subramnaiam

The online sessions are very interesting. They are full of fun activities. Kids are enjoying dance, music, yoga, experiments etc.

Kids will enjoy more if the sessions are slightly short.



Mother of Amishi and Tavishi Gupta (Std 2)


My daughter, MalikaIyer,  is in prep 2 A.
Would like to share some feedback for the online class –

1. The virtual tour of TajMahal was just out of the world! Very well planned With just the right information for this age group.
2. The virtual underwater experience was beautiful. Audio had some issues in this class but I must appreciate the Huge efforts Made by the teacher, Meenakshimaam.
3. The mandala painting activity done by Charmimaam was so peaceful and well cordinated with the Tibetan bowl mediation. CharmimaamWas extremely patient and slow in giving clear instructions to children. Her voice had so much love and warmth!! At the same time, I have also seen her narrating stories with equal excitement and fun.
4. Poojamaam has been executing  all activities Wonderfully with step by step Demonstrations and  instructions. She has also taught my elder son, dhruvaIyer – now in class 10B!! I feel so good that she is now teaching my daughter ! Her years of Experience are so evident in her classes!

I would like to thank and applause  the efforts of all teachers and AVM school for Taking such pains to make online classes engaging and fun for children. From the bottom of my heart – THANK YOU!

Being a teacher myself, I understand that the efforts for these classes are more than double of regular classroom teaching. And I am sure the teachers are enjoying too!

Appreciation from all of us at home – Grandmom especially



(Parent of Dhruv Std 5 B Dhairiya Prep 2 B )

Dear Teachers,

You are truly a blessing. I witnessed two sessions running parallel for my daughters in prep I and Std IV. 

The sessions were very well coordinated, content was well crafted and our dear Teachers were so positive. There wasn’t an iota of doubt on your minds that this won’t work. This confidence and your passion will surely help the tiny tots sail through the year safely and smoothly.

May the learning continue..nothing can deter us.. loved the spirit. Kudos..

As we grew we were always taught and we witnessed that teachers are our second parents. They spread the light of wisdom and make our lives better and wiser. You Pratiksha Ms. have done the same for our kids.

Thank you for making the right changes in our kids. You taught them not to give up until they have achieved what they should. You made the impossible possible. Our kids are now more confident than they were ever before. If every teacher in this world were just as dedicated as you, no parent would ever have to worry about their kids. Thanks for your inspiring work and your uncompromising love, care and affection towards them.

We will always be grateful to have you as a mentor and mother to our kids. You are their everything, inspiration and role model.

Sending lots of love from all the students of Prep 1 C for you, Pratiksha Ms., our beloved teacher.

Heartfelt thank you from all parents.

Dear AVM Bandra(West),
Yet again we, as parents are indebted to you for all you have done in these trying times. 
The situation presently has the entire nation worried, and every individual would tend to act selfishly to protect themselves from harm. 
However the teachers , support staff and bhaiya , didi’s of this institution, under the able guidance of  Mrs. Jyoti Kumar and our Principal, have prioritised educating our children even during such a stressful time. 
We would like to thank the teachers, support staff, Mrs. Kumar, our Principal and all their brave families for constantly lending us their valuable time and going out of your way to care for our kids. 
No words could do justice to portray my gratitude for your courage and love. 
Our children are truly lucky to have guardian angels such as you watching over them. 
We would also like to thank the Management for their encouragement to introduce the online learning concept & make it possible for our children to study. 
Thank you teachers.

Dear Principal madam,

I want to express my sincere gratitude to Playschool B teachers Ms Puja Chibber, Ms Anjali Mishra and also Pre-primary head Ms Bhumika Pillai for the quality of care and stimulation they provide each and every day to our children. 

 I had the privilege of attending “Sound of music – parent-child activity” scheduled on 05.03.2020 for Playschool B. It was a wonderful sensory-motor musical experience where both parents and children had lots of fun together under the guidance of teachers. Be it rhythmic clapping, tapping and humming, making music using simple objects like a sheet of used paper, or summing up with relaxing meditation, we all got lovely cues to connect more with our kids. 

 I’m glad to share that last week my son Avnish confidently recited a poem on stage in a gathering at my workplace in front of a crowd of 800-900 adults. The credit for this goes to his teachers for imbibing soft skills that make children assertive, confident and expressive.


Thanks and regards,

Dr. Prajakta Gupte

(M/o Avnish Gupte, Playschool B)

Today AVM Juhu organised a SOUNDS OF MUSIC activity. It was a wonderful experience.

The whole activity and the active participation of the kids so rhythmically shows the tireless efforts of the whole team. It is really hard to imagine how a prep II kid could be taught music so beautifully and yet this tedious task was completed by Bhumika miss and her team. Hat’s off to them. It was amazing to see Bhumika miss, Pooja miss and Charmi miss perform with kids. The happiness seen on the face of the kids, the way they enjoyed all this and still performed very well was just awesome. That second last activity was great. How the kids performed and enjoyed as well. This activity could be used in various ways at home to teach kids several things.

The cherry on the top was the meditation exercise done at last. Wonderful way to calm kids and ourselves in today’s fast scenario.

At last, I want to thank Bhumika miss and her whole team for such a wonderful experience and teach me new things which I’m definitely going to implement in my and my kids life.

Mumbai- 400 049.

Respected Madam,

                A.V.M is bringing about a wonderful change in the children’s mindset by their meaningful initiatives concerning our dear wonderful environment.

With immense pride and joy I wish to share with you the change I noticed in my daughter, Ora, after the school began the ‘save-water’ movement.

Ora was suffering from common cold. To relieve her from the cold and a blocked nose, she takes a hot water steam. After she finished with the steam, she handed me the bowl of water and said that we will use this water to water the plants after it cools down.

It only reflects the genuinity and concern with which the school has initiated such moves. And so, is naturally impacting the little minds to live wisely.

I am obliged and grateful.

In deep gratitude, I commend AVM with all due respect.

Pallami Jha.


Bhumika Pillai and Shilpi Raizada Ma’am,

Arya Vidya mandir Juhu,

This letter is to appreciate and congratulate you for organising and conducting a fabulous sports day for the Pre-primary children. It was just not a sports day but a creative event where the theme of Monsoon worked very well. You

made monsoon so knowledgeable, colourful and entertaining to the audience as well as the children.

The hard work put by your team of teachers for creating a lovely concept is applaudable. Hats off to the teachers who were handling so many children with different tasks to be accomplished and it went off really well. It took me back to our school days.

Thank you for such a memorable experience and looking forward to many more memorable occasions and events like this.

Best regards,

The annual day was really well planned. Teachers have done a lots of hard work and their result was clearly showcased by the kids.All the acts and dances  were really well thought and planned. The arrangements done by teachers was perfect. I personally love the Balsatsang very much. Also, the theme chosen by the teachers was great. Hats off to all the teachers.

Respected Madam,

My son Mst. Revaant Joshi is studying in Std. 1 Div. B in your esteem school. I would like to thank you and the teachers of Primary section for the wonderful Sports Day and Balsatsang 2019. 

The teachers put in so much thought and effort in each event to make a memorable experience for the children and parents. The theme of Balsatsang is always very thoughtful and value-based. Being grateful to the real superheroes in our daily life is something that we unknowingly miss out on. It was a good reminder for us as parents as well. These values and thoughts given to children at an early age by their teachers help them to be more responsible and down to earth citizens of the future. 

I had the opportunity to volunteer for Sports Day and Balsatsang to choreograph dances for 1 B and 1 C. The experience was amazing and I could witness the happiness and excitement around 🙂 The Balsatsang performance was excellent with vibrant costumes and superb concept. I would especially like to thank the class teacher of 1 B Ms. Afrin Mullan for her caring ways and discipline. She trained the children so well for the Sports day and Balsatsang that it made it easy for the parent volunteers to manage. Children are very fond of her 🙂 

Once again I would like to thank you, Namrata ma’am, Afrin ma’am and all the Primary teachers for their commendable efforts to give our children such wonderful experiences and on their continual efforts to keep children happy in the school. 

Warm regards,

Dear All

It has been our pleasure to attend Bal Satsang of AVM Juhu from the past 12 years …first our elder kid and now younger one.

What i always like about all the Bal Satsang and this year also is the values that you people imbibe in our kids …also the way in such an enjoyable way its told to parents too.

The best part was to hear the trustees also supporting the values and hence it can be seen inculcated in the teachers and all staff members. Dr Sabherwal had been my all-time favourite as his teachings one can relate and easy to follow.

well done to all the staff members and supporters of this event. Keep it up and have the AVM flag fly high…

Warm Regards,

Saurabh Khanna

Respected principal ma’am & teachers,

I wish to express my delight and appreciation for the recently held Balsatsang. I congratulate the school and staff for choosing such an inspirational topic commemorating our unsung ‘SUPERHEROES’.

The kids performed wonderfully and confidently on stage. This clearly wouldn’t be possible without the hard work of our teachers, students and volunteers.

With warm regards,

Pooja Ardeshana

(Mother of Freya Ardeshana - class:1 C)

Dear Ma’am

I am writing this letter to appreciate the success of two back to back events – the Primary sports day and the Balsatsang for Std 1 and Std 2.

The sports day was yet again a wonderful show of sportsman spirit and participation. It was nice to see the inclusion of some classic races like the backward walking race, the sack race and the three-legged race. The release of the gas balloons was a great start to the sports day!

Yesterday we got to be part of another great Balsatsang. The theme was very well thought of and drove home the point of appreciating all those who help us in different ways to get on with our life.

A big thank you to all the teachers, whose efforts and contributions helped in making the events successful. Having worked on the props for the sports day as well as helping with the costumes for the Balsatsang, got to experience first-hand the hard work of our class teacher, Ms Pooja Shroff. She was extremely patient, understanding and supportive. She guided us and helped ensure the performance today went as per plan. Her hard work and dedication was second to none.

A special mention for Surbhi miss and Reena miss for all their efforts in teaching the children.

Warm Regards,

Pooja Chavan

Mother of Aryana Chavan Class 1 A

Dear Principal/Subject head Namrata madam/Pooja madam,

My hearty congratulations to you all mam on the achievement of your

DREAM…yes, for the beautiful Bal Satsang you presented to us. I can easily acknowledge the massive effort of your efficient teachers behind this. I found that everything was well planned, well organised and promptly executed.

Another difference was the concept-based nature of the program, which I really appreciated. I felt there was something to carry home for everyone…it

satisfied all sorts of people, some truths that needed to conveyed.

I really loved all the acts from playschool to Std 2 well construction sequence along with

the enchanting music …it got me into gooseflesh. Next i don’t have any words for the dance…it was absolutely professional .Hat’s off to the dance teacher for

her beautiful choreography…nevertheless it was perfect because of the excellent teamwork.

I want to especially thank all the teachers, i could see them standing there in charge tirelessly till they handed over our wards. This needs a lot of responsibility and goodwill.

I even noticed the sincere effort to bring maximum students onto the stage. All these things need very discrete preparation. I am very happy

Dear ma’am,

This is to congratulate you for a successful sports day event organised for preschool and primary school children.

In my 2 years of experience with AVM Juhu, i have witnessed constant upgradation and continuous efforts to make it a better experience in all possible ways.

The sports day was a treat to our eyes. Each concept / idea if the race was a beautiful creation.

I would like to convey my special thanks to the teachers for always being so enthusiastic and especially Ms. Afrin Mullan does a great job in every possible manner. From being a most favourite teacher for kids to bring a perfectionist in handling all events, she is just outstanding.

I would like to congratulate you once again for making every event an experience for us.

Keep up the good work and look forward to much success in the future.

Thanks, and regards,

To our Dear Principal Ma’am,

Today, we attended our son Meherzen Mehta’s primary sports day who is studying in class 1A under Pooja Shroff Ma’am.

Today’s event was a visual treat. It was beautifully organised. The March Past, torch run, Punjabi dance, fun races, champion races, props, felicitation of students, band and selection of songs for the races. It was amazingly organised and coordinated.

Congratulations to whole team of AVM for the success of an amazing primary sports day meet. We are glad to be a small part of AVM as a parent.

The kind of love, patience, support and guidance you all give to our little ones is just incredible. I will take an opportunity to thank our dearest class teacher Pooja Shroff ma’am over here. She is such a nice person, calm, composed and loving teacher to our children. My special thanks to her.

I would also thank our subject head Namrata Daswani ma’am for her involvement in every little thing of our children. My thanks to each and every person involved in sports day to make it such a big hit. All our primary teachers, bhaiyya, didi, our student volunteers carrying those props and helping children in race. Hats off to everyone for all the efforts taken.

Our special thanks to our dear Principal Mrs. DamanjeetSabrewal ma’am for leading all teacher’s and school in a very beautiful manner. Congratulations on and thank you ma’am.

This is to place on record that Mrs. Deepa Ranade, Class Teacher of I-C, has shown excellent constant care towards our son, Ranveer Widge, leading to him significantly transforming over the time spent under her able leadership.

Ranveer today displays a high level of positivity, confidence, social etiquette and intellect, in which regard we would like to credit Mrs. Deepa, with her decades of experience, who have taken upon herself to walk the extra mile.

Our meetings with her have always been reaped positive dividends as she is a good listener and swift in customizing her approach.

Warm regards,

Dear Teachers,

I attended the Primary Sports Day on November 7, 2019 and thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it. Some of the points which I noticed and which really deserve appreciation :

  1. Every child participates in the event. Be it the dance, Marching, Yoga, Champions and Challengers Races, Tug of War, Fun Races, Yoga Demonstration, there was something in it for each child.


  1. All the races were so innovative. When you compare the sports days over the years , you realize that every year there is something new, something unique. Hats off to all the teachers. 


  1. Winners are definitely appreciated.  But there are more claps of encouragement for those who lag behind in the races. Teachers make sure that every participant completes the race and doesn’t give up halfway. That is indeed noteworthy.


  1. Over the years, the one thing that I have always liked about the Sports day is the fact that an AVM student is brought in as the chief guest for the function. Its such a proud moment for that child and his/her family members. It also encourages all the school children. It gives them an idol, someone they can look up to.


  1. The shamiana and the seating makes it really comfortable for the parents.

Huge applause for all the teachers, support staff, volunteer children and volunteer parents for all their efforts.

Dear Principal Ma’am, 

I take this opportunity to appreciate the periodic health checkups conducted by the school. 

My son, Ishān Srijit, Prep II A, underwent the periodic dental and eye checkup recently. During this checkup, he was diagnosed with refractory error in his eyes. We took him to an ophthalmologist,  who confirmed the condition, and commented on the good job done by the school and the doctors. If it wasn’t for this checkup, we wouldn’t have been aware of the condition. We are now taking him for an Ayurvedic treatment in Kerala. 

Keep up the good work.

Dear Ms Agarwal,

On behalf of all the parents of play school B, I would like to thank Ms. Puja, Ms. Anjali, all the teachers and specially the Head mistress Ms. Bhumika Pillai for giving our children this wonderful experience in dramatics.
It was truly a fabulous performance. Well organized and well co-ordinated.
The senior students of AVM showed an exemplary conduct by helping the pre-primary students.

We were thoroughly entertained by each performance, it was such a huge achievement for all of the children to get up on stage and perform in front of so many people…well done!
Loved seeing the huge smiles and the kids enjoying themselves so much.
Our kindest appreciation to the hard working teachers and helpers (costume designers, volunteer parents and trainee teachers) who put this together and managed everything backstage and at the front, you are all amazing.

Mam The Balsatsang was very entertaining and you could see the effort from the students and the teachers show casing their various talents and above all team work.
We are very proud to be a part of the AVM community.

Your’s sincerely,

Dear Principal madam and teaching faculty, 

We are really happy parents (to Tanish Bhagava) but you are the reason for our happiness in writing this letter. 

Simple joys at AVM reassure us of having made the right choice for our child’s education. The bal satsang organized on August 4th was very well conducted and we could relate to the theme chosen by the school and you. Thanks for a wonderful day and all your efforts. 

A special mention for Tanish’s teacher -Mrs Bharti – she is the reason Tanish spoke on stage without any fear. We are grateful to have such teachers for our kids. 

We look forward to more such occasions and thank you one more time for a wonderful day for all of us. 

Warm regards,

We take this opportunity to congratulate you and your entire team who worked so hard for such a well conceptualised Bal Satsang. Everything from the concept, selection of dresses, selection of songs to the execution was EXCELLENT.  

It was a pleasure to see all the kids performing with utmost confidence and enthusiasm and it was wonderful to see the elder children guiding and helping the younger ones. What a delight to see all the kids dancing with happiness and joy.  Hats off to the entire team of Pre-Primary Teachers headed by subject head Mrs. Bhumika Pillai. It’s her leadership qualities that result in such a great show. It is not easy to portray cultures of different Countries, but this team of teachers, volunteers and students made a beautiful presentation.

Special thanks to Rushali Teacher for being loving, caring and patient with all the children and also giving them the warmth, which resulted in a performance that no parent will forget. The rounds of applause and whistles were evidence of appreciation for all the hardwork that she has put in executing a great performance by the little children.

What a delightful Sunday it was… A truly deserved standing ovation for the entire team of Pre-Primary Section.

Heartfelt gratitude and our sincere thanks to this wonderful institution and best wishes for the future.

Today’s event was indeed captivating and kept me engrossed throughout. 
Story telling is indeed an art in which only a few prosper. 
But weaving it through so many voices acts & dance of so many little children takes it to the next level.
Hats off to the school and volunteers for pulling such a grand act.
We have already started planning a trip to statue of Unity.

Dear Alka Maa’m and Teachers,
I have No words to describe how delightful it is to watch Balsatsangh year after year at AVM.
Always thought provoking, always a reality check be it about child labor, adopting a child, saving the environment, being a good citizen by using right to vote, and a topic like this year -About Sardar Vallabhav Bhai Patel
.Best thing about all Balsatsangis that the fact this school ensures each and every student participate,Selecting few and making them do remarkablethings is doesn’t stand when compared to ensure more than 200+ participation and each one of them Shining.
Keep up the good work

Respected Sirs and Madam,

Sub: Excellence in education – 10th Standard Results – Batch of 2019

This is to convey our heartiest congratulations to you and the entire team at Vasudev C. Wadhwa Arya Vidya Mandir, Bandra East (AVMBE) for the superlative results achieved by the tenth standard batch 2019.

These results would not have been possible without the relentless efforts of the entire team at AVMBE led by respected Principal – Mrs. Shobha Iyer. As parents of an AVM student we would like to share with you our experience and feedback on the decade long journey with AVM;

1. Values First: AVMBE was our school of choice because of ots impeccable reputation and a firm grounding in the values and beliefs of our culture. Your focus on integrating our cultural values has been a unique and important factor that has helped in grooming students who otherwise get completely swayed by the string winds and trappings of western influences.

2. Balanced Approach: The trend in many schools today is to burden students with several assignments, projects and homework in the name of holistic learning. This rarely works as most of these projects are outsourced or completed by parents. AVM stands apart for its balanced approach of scaling up academic rigour in a methodical manner. The exam schedules, the grading system, the syllabus, extracurricular activities etc have all helped in fostering a creative and progressive environment for growth without causing student burnout.

3. Timely and Valuable Guidance: Most parents dread the 10th standard due to the enormous competitive and social pressure associated with these exams. However, the guidance provided by the Principal as well as the teachers, during the various open day meetings, has been extremely helpful in managing the entire experience. The timeliness, simplicity and clarity of communication have genuinely helped us to plan and prepare for the exams, without getting unduly stressed.

4. Willingness to change: The willingness and ability of the management to adapt and change to meet the challenges of the evolving environment have helped at each stage, using the school hours for and to standard: sting the Art/ elective classes from AVM Juhu to AVM Bandra (1) etc. are some of the steps that appear small, but have collectively eased the problems that were faced by students and helped them perform better.

5. Teaching Staff We understand that getting and retaining good teachers in today’s competitive environment is a challenge AVM has had a reasonable fee structure (though fee hikes have stepped up recently) and has been able to get good teachers within the constraints it operates in There had been occasional problems with some new teachers, but these were effectively addressed. Overall the students have been very happy with the teachers and it’s heartening to hear words of praise from them. Especially, Jaya Miss (Chemistry) at AVMBE has been a source of inspiration.

In conclusion we would like to thank you for all your efforts and guidance which have been crucial for the development of students in these vital years. We sincerely wish for continued success for the AVM Group of Institutions and are truly proud to be have been a part of it.

Yours sincerely

Dear Madam,
We vividly remember the first day that Viraat started AVM. Well knowing his temperament for 2 ½ years, we were apprehensive until we saw Vaishalini teacher leading the children to the gate after their first day.

Through an emotionally turbulent first year, she was our pillar of strength and support, knowing exactly how to deal with his needs at school and guiding us on how to overcome roadblocks at home.

Thanks to Vaishalini teacher’s efforts and inputs, Viraat today has blossomed and we have become better parents.
Over heartfelt gratitude and sincere thanks to Vaishalini teacher for everything she has done for Viraat and Vihaan both. We thank god that our children have had the privilege of being her students.

Respected Madam,

We wish to convey our gratitude to Ms. Dipali teacher (Prep II A). Both our sons Arnav and Shantanu have had the good fortune of having Dipali Miss as their class teacher in their respective Pre-primary years. She is firm yet sensitive while handling the children. She also has a reassuring demeanour while interacting with parents and has helped us in handling our anxieties and concerns about our children.

She has definitely played a big role in moulding their characters positively. We will miss her as a teacher and wishing her great success for the future.
Thanking You.

Yours sincerely,

Mrs. Kinnary and Mr. Dnyanesh Narvekar

Respected Dear Harsha Teacher,

We the parents of Haveer Vinay Savla would like to take this opportunity to thank you for passing the love and knowledge to our son whole heartedly. Your passion and hard work for teaching the children is very appreciable.

Haveer speaks about a lot about you at home and has been eager to come to school. This shows that the children are enjoying the schooling and hence we believe that in such an environment our children will come out as better human beings, instilled with vast wealth of knowledge and will be better equipped with the capabilities of handling the challenges lying ahead of them in life.

A teacher is always remembered but a teacher like you is always loved.

Many thanks

Dear Harpreet teacher,

Being a parent we are very happy about the progress of our child Riyansh. He has taken part in all the activities this year and performed so well.

Basically our children are there with us at home for maximum time still we are unable to teach them so many things, but there are so many children are there in class and that too for ½ hrs but you teaches them so many creative things. We are very happy to see that our child is growing up and learning so many great things all credit goes to you, thank you very much. My son is always talking so well about you.

Thanking you,

Hi Ma’m,

Yet another academic year comes to an end, and I would want to take the opportunity to thanks all teachers in the world of making it such a beautiful place to live in! Thank you for taking care of our children, teaching them right from wrong, showing them the right path that must be taken. Thank you for taking care of us!

As I pen this, I am taken back to our first interaction a few years back. You wanted to meet up with my wife and me to discuss some matter. Being parents to a hyperactive child with a mind of his own, we were slightly concerned about what he could have done! It was only when we met that we realized that the conversation was more about how you thought the child was wronged by a substitute teacher and you wanted us to be in the loop. It was a very very small matter, ma’m, and I don’t think we would have had a point of view on it. But you wanted to proactively meet and clarify things. Because that’s how Arya Vidya Mandir works. And that’s how diligent teachers like you operate! The meeting spoke volumes about how wonderful a teacher and an administrator you are, ma’m. Honest, sincere, and extremely warm, loving and affectionate. I left that meeting a richer man.

I have had the good fortune to meet up with you a few times post that, and it has always been a delight interacting with you. You understand children, parents, and teachers equally well, and the insights that you provide have always been quite a learning for me both as an individual and a father.

I have gathered that you would be leaving the Bandra East branch to join AVM Juhu as the Principal Designate from 1st April, 2019. While I feel sad that we would not be able to see you on as regular a basis, I am delighted to witness this very natural progression of your professional life. The AVM management has made the perfect choice, and the students, teachers and parents of AVM Juhu are blessed!

Congratulations, and thank you again, ma’m, for being around!

Dear Ma’am,

I would like to thank you for the prestigious award given to my daughter Nayna Taneja, student of 7A on the Sports Day. These achievements would really have not been possible without your unending support and encouragement.

Nayna is indeed fortunate to be part of an institute that not only encourages but also nurtures sports and upcoming players.
Thank you ma’am once again for the honour. Also, looking forward to your continued support and blessings.

Thanking you,

Dear Principal Mam,

A very good afternoon to you!

My son, Aymaan Mistry is a student of your school and is currently studying in grade IC.

Aymaans’ academic journey in the pre primary has been wonderful.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank the pre primary teachers – Ms. Bhumika, Ms. Pratiksha, Ms. Pooja and Ms.Bageshree for mentoring Aymaan during his pre primary years at AVM Juhu. We have seen a significant change in Aymaan over these 3 years.
The efforts put in by these teachers is way more than what can be seen when students perform at an event or school functions. Mentoring students of this age group requires tremendous efforts and patience which is very difficult and not everyone’s cup of tea.

All the primary teachers have been really good towards Aymaan. They have always appreciated him for whatever he has done, whether as an individual or as a team. When Aymaan made mistakes, these teachers have always mentored him as if he were their own child.

I remember when Aymaan was in play school A, for the first 3 months he used to trouble Bhumika miss a lot and always insisted that she carry him in her arms. Bhumika miss had to literally carry him and take him wherever she went. 

When Aymaan won gold medals for the state level and national level skating competition, each and every teacher congratulated him and appreciated him for his achievements. Aymaan came home with a lit up and very happy face that day.

Such selfless and caring attitude of these teachers is simply commendable.

Thank you once again to all the pre primary teachers for the patience and efforts they have put into nurturing my son Aymaan.

Best regards,

Mr Asif Mistry

( Parents of Aymaan Mistry of Prep II A )

To the Principal Mam,
AVM Juhu,

Sending a part of your heart away even for a few hours is always overwhelming for parents and was no different for us. But as we noticed our Jiana beaming with happiness each day when discussing school activities, or time spent there, it was indeed assured that we had taken the best decision for her with AVM Juhu.

We would like to express heartfelt and sincere gratitude to the ever so lovely class teachers Pratiksha Miss and Rushali Miss.. in them our daughter has found a proper blend of friend forever, mother away from home and an apt Guru for life …We can see how honestly she adores them for the way they handle each kid in the class….We have also observed how Bhumika Miss is devotedly involved in each milestone and any activity that goes around with the entire pre-primary section… This synergy of the school team has laid a gorgeous foundation of trust amongst us parents, for us you all truly are patience and dedication personified!. 

We both cant thank you all enough to have nurtured our little sunshine brilliantly, and launching her first year in formal education so immaculately!!!

Sincere Regards,

Dear Bhumika Maam & Shilpi Teacher

I say this with utmost pride that the Pre Primary Balsatsang this year was by far the best we have seen since our son Vihaan began his schooling journey with AVM Juhu. What made this Balsatsang the best was undoubtedly its theme “Gratitude Is The Right Attitude” as teaching Gratitude to children at such a young age will ensure that we raise well rounded compassionate individuals who are sensitive and kind irrespective of the challenging environment of todays times.

We would like to applaud the efforts of Ms Bhumika Pillai Pre Primary Subject Head, our class teacher Ms Shipi Raizada and the entire team of talented teachers who presented this theme with absolute perfection, with Gratitude expressed towards almost every aspect of our lives including the very basic ones which are often taken for granted in todays fast paced times.

Be it the songs, the costumes, the dialogues and the theme itself,  has given not only the kids but us parents fodder for thought and a reminder that we all have a lot to be grateful for. To have a leader like our respected Principal Mrs Alka Agrawal so graciously express her gratitude towards our teachers was heart- warming to watch and a reminder to us that actions speak louder than words and that leading by example is what will help our children imbibe such values.Once again we laud the efforts of the entire  team of Pre Primary teachers at AVM Juhu and Ms Bhumika Pillai who is indeed an invaluable asset of the AVM Juhu Institution, for a spectacular Show.

Dear team AVM, Juhu

I write to express my commendation for the well organised , thoughtfully scripted theme of the PrePrimary Bal Satsang on Sunday 10th February. The prayers conducted by the students to begin the event,was an eye opener, as much as the responsibility your senior children don not only in this event, but all others too.

One took charge of the special need lil one on stage.Care,compassion,gratitude and prayerfulness are requisite values and it is impressive to see children being gently guided into this.

Streaming the programme live helped us enjoy being a valued member of AVM and we loved all the little ones.
Thank you for felicitating and appreciating my husband Col Patankar in his absence. You live every value you believe in.

Kudos to each one of you

Respected Madam,

Being part of the AVM family has been an immense joy for all of 13 years. In my daughter’s words: ‘ Sending me to AVM is the best decision made by my parents”

We want to convey our heartfelt gratitude to you and your esteemed institution, where Anagha has learnt so much under the nurturing guidance of her gurus. At important junctions of her progress path, thoughtful advice from all her teachers made vital contributions.

We applaud and highly appreciate your timely audience to our requests which propelled my ward to pursue her dreams with dedication.

Once again thanking you and all in the Avm family, knowing for sure that it will continue to groom the generations to come.

Sincerely and faithfully yours

Respected Mrs Kumar and Teachers,

At the outset, thank you very much for the kind message sent today morning!

It was a wonderful opportunity and a great learning experience as well, to accompany all the kids for the outing.. Thank you for giving me the opportunity!

I always used to admire AVM teachers for their patience, equanimity and amazing tolerance to manage children of all types ! The very few times I had done substitution had drained me of my energy ?… This time I saw it from close quarters and realised why Teaching is called a “noble profession” ! You have to be truly selfless and have a passion for nurturing youngsters to get into this profession !

Words may not be able to express my gratitude for all the hard work and efforts that have gone into moulding our children and preparing them for a bright future… I would like to offer my heartfelt “Thank you” to each and every teacher who has worked tirelessly to make this a great institution under the able leadership of Mrs Kumar.

Thank you,

The Management of AVM Group of Schools

Dear Sir /Madam

I, Rohit Bhatia, am a parent of Ms. Aarna Bhatia, who has been a student of R.S.B, Arya Vidya Mandir since playschool. While my daughter has been studying in this school, there have been a few other Principals at the school. However today I write this letter to express my sincere appreciation for Ms. Alka Agrawal, Principal of Ramdevi Shobhraj Bajaj AVM School, for being the most superb school principal I have ever known.

There has been a marked improvement in academic, social and sports field under the benevolent and efficient administration of Ms. Agrawal. As parents, it’s been a joy to watch our children bloom into better persons and I give utmost credit to Ms. Agrawal for this inspiring sea of change in the school.The nurturing school environment created by her, one to one interaction with our children has been very motivating for our children. Her words of encouragement and advice during assemblies have a positive impact on the children and they try to heed to her advice in their daily routine thus strengthening their character.

The good learning environment ensured by Principal Madam and her team of dedicated teachers is commendable. I know many students including my own daughter can approach any teacher including Principal Madam herself for any assistance for their studies or for that matter anything . Recently the Secondary section teachers had designed the Recap worksheets for all subjects. These worksheets and question banks are truly helpful to the students. Speaking for myself, I have seen my daughter only do these recap sheets just before her exam and she seems much assuredabout  completing her studies on time. I sincerely want to thank the teachers and Principal Madam for these well designed worksheets.

Not only in studies, we have noticed a lot of difference in the discipline and conduct of the students. I was very touched when one day, when I went to pick my daughter around 4 pm [i.e. after school activities], I met the Principal Madam waiting along with some teacher and students ensuring that no child took an auto rickshaw on their own. Her personal interest ensuring the safety of our children has been very reassuring to me and other parents.
The conduct of our children, be it their uniform or their behavior in public is closely watched by the teachers under the eagle eye of Principal Madam and the results speak for themselves . When our children are complimented for their grounded behavior and proper discipline we surely need to complement and thank Principal Madam and her team for the same.

Ms. Agrawal, has a fantastic rapport with our children who can approach her at any time for her advice and support. We have had our children wanting to participate in various sports, various external exam such as Trinity exams for Piano etc. These event are scheduled during school hours and sometimes during exams. Principal Madam, takes time from her busy schedule to talk to each child to understand their need to attend all these events. She personally motivates them, encourages them to participate all these events. All this support from Ms. Agrawal has been a strong hand in shaping the overall personalities of our children.

I, take this opportunity to thank Principal Madam and the management, for bringing about positive infrastructural changes in the classrooms and the school building. The state of art laboratory, staff room, toilets, the drinking area, well lit corridors are some essential changes we observed and are very appreciated by us parents. I’m sure there are more upcoming changes and we look forward to such changes.

Last but not the least my huge thanks to Mrs. Agrawal and the management for reducing school hours for the 9th and 10th standard. It was very painful to see most of our children give up on their hobbies or sports in the higher classes. Thanks to this decision the children are a bit relaxed and a relief for us parents.

As said by Donald H. McGannon -‘Leadership is action, not position’ and this fits well for Mrs. Alka Agrawal. I know many other parents and students feel the same way about our Principal Madam, even though they may often forget to say how much we appreciate her. I, thank her again for her wise and strong leadership in ensuring continued success of our children and the school.

Our school is definitely a better place because Mrs. Agrawal is at the helm of affairs

Sincerely yours,

Rohit Bhatia

Sub: Expressing gratitude to the school, Primary subject head, Shefali ma’am and class teacher of Std I, Div C, Deepa Ranade ma’am for the support and encouragement given to my child

Dear Madam,

This is with reference to my child, Kiara Shah, studying in Std I, Div C of your school. As you may be aware, Kiara underwent a surgery in her right elbow & forearm in June 2018 for a congenital condition (due to which her elbow was getting constricted and she couldn’t stretch her right hand completely)

Throughout the month of June and July, she couldn’t attend school but her class teacher, Deepa ma’am was constantly in touch and kept a check on her progress. When my daughter resumed school, she had to be kept under a rigid plaster and care had to be taken that she doesn’t hurt her hand again. Deepa ma’am would pick her up from the foyer and drop her till the gate and ensured that she came separately. She formed a buddy group of her classmates who helped my daughter in mundane activities and ensured that my daughter was at ease and even motivated her at every step.

As parents, there was a lot of inhibition from our end about her resuming school after such a major surgery, but the confidence with which this was handled and the reassurance that she is in safe hands by the class teacher and subject head was really commendable.

Deepa ma’am has been a guiding star and a pillar of support for my child and I thank her from the bottom of my heart for this.

A special mention and thanks to all the other class teachers of Std I, who would drop her if Deepa ma’am was away, Didis on the floor, Patil kaka and the main gate watchman as well for all their help and care.

I really appreciate the school’s co-operation and the subject head and especially the class teacher’s constant support during such a difficult phase of my child and will be forever grateful for the same.

I would also take this opportunity to thank all her pre-primary teachers – Bharti ma’am, Sunita ma’am, Bhagyashree ma’am and Shilpi ma’am for constantly motivating her in her formative years and instilling confidence at every level.

Thank You,

Soumya Easwaramony.

Visit to Bakery unit


Respected Principal Madam,

Avm Juhu

We would like to send our gratitude and appreciation for organising such an informative field trip to the Bakery unit.

It was so nice to see kids coming home overjoyed with excitement describing about the entire event and so many things they learned. Right from watching a huge oven in which the cakes & cookies are baked, how the cake is moulded and how the muffins rise in the oven, etc. They had lot of things to share at home happily. It was truly very interesting and informative. And getting goodie bags with yummy muffins and cake back home for us made their day.

We would like to thank our Subject Head Shefali miss and all the Primary teachers for conducting such wonderful and informative events organised as part of fun based learning.

It really feels great to see our kids happy in learning each and every activity they get to do at the school.

Thanks and Regards,

Congratulations for the Class 2 Bal Satsang

We extend our sincerest thanks and heartiest congratulations to Ms. Sunita, Ms. Shefali, Ms. Alka Agarwal, the staff and parent volunteers for a thought-provoking and entertaining Balsatsang by Class 2 held on Sunday, 7th October 2018. This is our first year as parents of children studying at RSB AVM, Juhu though we have been part of the AVM family for the past 2 years. Our children were previously studying in the pre-primary and primary sections of AVM Bandra West. Having been parent volunteers for Bal Satsang in the past, we are quite well versed with the processes and the challenges that come with it.

However, we would like to especially commend you on:

1. The scripting and methodology of storytelling used to convey the theme and the key messages about the vision of the school was fantastic. There was never a dull moment!

2. The confidence with which the children of all classes performed was exemplary. Would not have been possible without unflinching support from the teachers.

3. The process of putting together costumes, props, backdrops, presentations, music is such that everything works seamlessly. It has been simplified so much by staff and parent volunteers that Bal Satsang is an activity that we will certainly look forward to every year.

4. The Marwah Hall is a wonderful venue for conducting the event with excellent acoustics. Doors and windows were left open to ensure adequate ventilation and provide a conducive atmosphere for parents to attend and enjoy the show. Even the Grand parents were extremely comfortable and were able to enjoy and appreciate all the work put in by everyone including the kids.

In conclusion, the event was managed very well. We are quite confident that we made the right decision by enrolling our children in RSB AVM. We are assured that the management, staff and parents are all equally invested in overall development of the children. We look forward to many more extra curricular activities and hope to see RSB AVM Juhu as one of the Top 5 schools next year.

Thanks and all the best!

BalSatsang AVM Juhu_ Execution Par Excellence !!

Respected Teachers and Principal Ma’am,

What a journey it has been at AVM Juhu with our kids in the hands of magicians like you all !!

Balsatsang is a testimony to the amount of hard work, thoughtfulness and endless hours of preparation that is done with our tiny tots.

From play school to standard II , the journey is enriching each year. Students exhibited tremendous amount of confidence and skills in execution and all credit to ‘You All’.

Thanks Dil Se !! We loved the concept and thoroughly enjoyed every moment of the Bal Satsang for PS C, Std I and Std II.



( Mother of Mishika Jain II C )

Respected Mam,

We are the parents of Swara Subramaniam who is currently in Prep 2 B at AVM Juhu.

We recently received the news of Smt. RSB AVM being ranked 8th in Mumbai by Education World. It gave us immense joy to see our honourable Principal Mrs Alka Agrawal receive the award on behalf of the School.

We wanted to take this opportunity to congratulate the school management on this glorious achievement and most importantly pen down our deepest appreciation for Mrs Alka Agrawal. The award is but a true testament of her leadership at AVM.

From the very first time we interacted with her, what has stood out for us is how genuine, approachable and compassionate she is.

This feeling only gets reinforced with every interaction-the most recent one being the flawless admission process that was put in place for next year’s Nursery admissions where in our son joins AVM as well. We were beyond impressed with how AVM is always raising the bar to make the experience memorable for parents and children alike.

We are taking the liberty of saying she is not just a traditional Principal but a Visionary.

She truly cares about our children and understands their lives beyond the walls of the school. And what more can we ask for when School is a home away from home for our children.

There has not been a single opportunity in the past 2.5 years, be it at the Bal Satsang , Sports Day etc where we have not eagerly looked forward to her addressing the parents. She has constantly collaborated with the parents through all these platforms. We make mental notes and walk away with words of wisdom we can apply in our lives as parents.

Her words remind us that she is truly a thought catalyst, an agent of change who engages and involves stakeholders such as us in the journey of providing our children a continual climate of learning.

We have observed how she has empowered the teachers to sustain and create learning environments that will enable our children to take on the world and its ways.

She has a vision for AVM that is of very high standards and is taking us all along the journey. This is seen in all the improvements we have observed in the school premises as well.

Through her walking the walk and talking the talk, our children have a role model from whom they are imbibing values of creativity, innovation and compassion.

Thank you Maam for being a role model for the children and us alike.

Thanks and Regards

Vijay and Suraksha Subramaniam

Parents of Swara Subramaniam (Prep 2 B)

Respected Principal Ma’am,

Our dear son Meherzen Mehta is studying in Prep II B (2018-19). Me and my husband dearly wish you and all our teachers, office staff, management, bhaiyas and didi’s a very Happy Teacher’s day.

We don’t want to restrict teachers day just for a day as a teacher works 24*7 moulding our children and bestowing immense amount of  love, care, support, proper guidance, making them creative, shaping them and imparting knowledge on our children to make them a better person for better future, which is commendable and is an immeasurable effort.  Salute to all the selfless efforts to every teacher and person on board of Team AVM, Juhu.

My special thanks to all the Pre-Primary teacher’s, our Subject Head Mrs. Bhumika Pillai, our Class Teacher Ms. Puja Chibber and you for shaping our tiny tots into a mature, responsible children.

I was given an opportunity to substitute as a teacher a few times this year and I must say teaching and keeping patience with 40 sets of little chirping children is not everyone’s cup of tea. Salute to all the pre-primary teachers. I am very grateful to have been given an opportunity to be with children and experience a teacher’s life. Thanks to our class teacher Ms. Puja Chibber and Ms. Bhumika Pillai for letting me experience a day as a teacher.

Thank you for having us as parents and letting us experience the joy of our children in school through all the updates on school app.

Thank you,

AVM Bandra West

Respected  Mam,

This being my first year at AVM. I personally was looking forward to Bal Satsang, noticed how the teachers were involved right from the roles to costume selection to the final execution. Though initially I thought why so much fees over costumes, On the final day onstage I truly understand why the fees!! Kids looked so confident, dialogue delivery was crisp and above the benchmark of a year olds, expressions, body language every minute point displayed the hard work of both the students and teachers, that was put across. It clearly displayed the support and motivation from the principal. The concept selection deserves applause and appreciation. Linking of the concept through relevant points, coordination and synchronization of characters, perfect display of emotions, overall the platter was perfect and full feeling. The dance students were excellent on their part. Selection of songs, keeping in the mind 9-year olds, needs applause. Overall well deserved standing ovation received on the day of Balsatsang – worthy of the efforts put in by every students and teachers, support staff, backstage students helpers involved in putting together this excellent event.

Mother of Ruhani Agarwal, IV-A

Respected Mrs.Kumar,

Namaste, I am dropping in a line to appreciate the school’s endeavor in making my 5th standard a success.  I want to shed some light about the lambent journey of the important part of my life, 5th standard.

It is a great honour to be as free as a butterfly fluttering the garden to do innumerable and exhilarating activities that enhance our passion towards learning and enlightens us.  Thank you for conducting copious events like Bal Satsang, Utkarsh, Moment of Joy, Sports Day, Independence Day, Republic Day, Navratri Party, Christmas Party, Punjabi Diwas, Marathi Diwas, Hindi Diwas and the crowning glory of the school is the ebullient and the fabulous sleepover.  Assemblies gives me a good and fair chance to participate and to explore the qualities I have. The Utkarsh festival helped me to overcome the fears of enacting in front of a mob of people. I was exultant to have the main and the renowned role of Mahadevi Verma. I had a whale of time in Utkarsh as Ms.Suma Singh, Ms.Suman Mishra, Ms.Siddhi, Ms.Monika, Ms.Nilu, Swapnil sir and Ms.Meher took care of me and gave me adequate support which boosted my confidence.  As well as the assiduous but zealous TR’s which aids in letting me know how much I have understood. I would ALSO LIKE TO THANK Frank sir for his diligence towards football which has inspired me a lot.

My most memorable memories have been in 5th standard which will be etched in my mind forever.  I am looking forward for many such memories.

Thanking you,

Mishtee Agrawal

Std. VA, Date : 15.03.2018


The Principal,

Arya Vidya Mandir School, Bandra west.

Dear Mrs. Kumar,

Re: Whole-hearted Thank you to Team AVM

With respect to above we wanted to write this letter since a while however better late than never.

Our child, Shreeya Gajaria in Std. 10th has completed 12 years in this institution and is now in her last year. We wanted to let the entire team of AVM know that we as parents are honored to be associated with your institution. Knowledge as rightly said is not confined to books and that’s what is followed at AVM.

We all know that no school is perfect but AVM does not aspire to be perfect, their aspiration is to enlarge the horizon of a child and not enforce and throw heaps of information towards them. The focus is on all round development. Respect for individuals is a key virtue. At AVM, a child will respect the one who cleans the school as much as he/she will respect the Principal or the Physics teacher.

Our child’s life in this school has evolved from kindergarten to teenage years and the important thing is that we can still see the child as grounded and closer to life as she was at the age of 3 when she started this journey. In this journey she has learnt the power of the Indian culture as well. A Namaste is more powerful than any other greeting and is followed at AVM from the heart. The Gayatri mantra, the shlokas and Sanskrit as a language strengthen the roots of a child. Education is given utmost importance however sports and extra-curricular activities are not kept in the background. Participation in events is as important as studies. A factory model of creating dumplings which are all the same is not followed by AVM and focus is on child’s individuality.

With this we would like to thank the entire team AVM for the wonderful years my child has spent and which she will remember and miss. Thank you for giving her the best childhood and teen memories.


Parag Gajaria & Urja Gajaria

Respected Principal,

I want to take your precious time to appreciate our class teacher Ms Puja Chibber of Prep II B and Subject Head Ms Bhumika Pillai.

My daughter Nirvi Patil is lucky to have her as teacher and mentor. This months engaging minds activity hurdle and movement was the thing all children were looking forward to but due to heavy rain I couldn’t send her to school but to my surprise the activity was held today as well and Nirvi throughly enjoyed it .

I’m so happy that Ms Bhumika Pillai, Ms Puja Chibber and team AVM thought of extending the engaging mind activity for this week.

Puja teacher is indeed very creative and thoughtful. My many thanks to her.

Thank you so much to our principal Ma’am Ms Alka Agrawal, Ms Bhumika Pillai, Ms Puja Chibber and team AVM.

Thank you

Dear Ma’am,

 As personally communicated, our family is emigrating to the U.S.A. and accordingly we have sought the Transfer Certificate for our younger daughter, Ms. Revati Mudholkar who is currently in Grade IV; meanwhile, our elder daughter, Ms. Sanyamee Mudholkar, has passed out from your institution this year in the Grade X, ICSE Examinations having scored 95% marks.  

 We would like to convey our appreciation with regard to the invaluable contribution that the Smt. R.S.B.A.V.M. School, Juhu, as an institution of eminence has made towards our children’s growth and their respective evolution- both academically as well as personally.

 Sanyamee joined this school in 2005, i.e., in Play School and has been educated at  Smt. R.S.B.A.V.M. School, Juhu for thirteen (13) years. During that period, the values she has imbibed and the principles that she has acquired in addition to the education she received have been a source of tremendous comfort to us. They will provide a solid foundation for her future and they will remain with her for life.

 Meanwhile, we are also proud to inform you that Sanyamee has also been selected for two (2) Summer School Programs at two (2) the Ivy Leagues viz. Brown University and at the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania. But for your support and guidance, this would not have been possible.

 We are extremely happy to state that there are several members amongst the teaching and the non- teaching Staff, who have played a pivotal role in the grooming of our children. We take the opportunity to specifically make honorable mentions of:

  1. Ms. Alka Agarwal
  2. Ms. Tanveer Khan
  3. Ms. Radhika Gupte
  4. Ms. Smita Sulakhe

All of them and many others have had a strong influence on Sanyamee, especially in the development of her personality. But for them, it would have been very challenging for her to come to this level. We shall always appreciate their efforts towards her success.  

Therefore when the time for Revati, our younger daughter’s school admission came in 2012, Smt.  R.S.B. A.V.M. School, Juhu was our first and the only natural choice.

 The institution has helped Revati develop positive outlook, a cheerful attitude as well as self-confidence, while keeping her grounded by virtue of the strong moral values which the school inculcates amongst all the students.

 We would specifically like to place on record, the support and co-operative guidance from the following Staff from the School, who have had tremendous impact on her for they having undertaken special efforts for her growth: 

  1. Ms Shefali Umesh
  2. Ms. Bhumika Pillai
  3. Ms. Vijeyta Trikha

 We shall be thankful if you could please communicate our gratitude to the above said Staff for their unflinching support and co-operative guidance bestowed upon both Sanyamee and Revati.

 As our children move forward in the next journey of their lives, we seek your continued blessings for them and we shall always be grateful for the part that you all have played in their respective formative years.

 Thanking you

 With Warm Regards,

 Yours Sincerely

Looking forward for many more years of happiness and success with stheer growing in this beautiful environment.

The authority concerned,

It gives me immense pleasure in writing this mail about Mrs.Pooja Shroff who is my daughter KrishaShrimankar’s class teacher for Std 1 A.

My daughter was diagnosed with dengue on 2 Nov after which she was on leave for 2 weeks from school. After resuming school, I was just worried for her health as weakness still remains but the doctor had mentioned that she has recovered. As a concerned parent I just wrote a letter to Mrs Pooja Shroff regarding her water intake and no excess exertion for 2 days prior to diwali vacation when she resumed.

I was so happy to see that she had finished her two big bottles of water. Notevery day it happens.She told me her class teacher reminded her to finish the same.I feel she is in safe hands.Pooja Miss has taken very good care of her.

She even on other usual days tells me how softly Pooja Miss speaks to her and every child in the class and she is always excited and happy to go to school as she enjoys this phase of her life with such wonderful teachers and faculty around.The picnics that are planned for the children are also so well organised.Happy to be a part of this institution.

A very big thank you to her class teacher Mrs Pooja Shroff and the faculty as well.Please let me know if I could be of any help too for the institution.

Respected Principal Madam and all the Primary section Teachers

It was so overwhelming to see our kids who look grown-ups now as they march forward proudly on the beats of drums following their House captains and flag bearers representing our school for their 1st march past parade. With every day’s practice and rehearsals at home as well, they were all set for the big day which they love to be part of. 

It was truly commendable to watch them on the field so confident which shows the efforts and hard work of our teachers behind it. The flat races for champions and challengers were so competitive, the fun races too were truly fun but challenging as well, the yoga art performed by Grade II students was so finely done and Tug of War was the spice of the day. Everyone enjoyed it so much.

I would like to thank all the Primary section teachers and volunteers for all their hardwork and making this event so wonderful. Thank you for always encouraging and motivating our kids and helping them achieve their goals. 

We are so grateful and proud to be a part of AVM. 

Thanks and Regards,

Mrs. Urvi Pavan Shah

(Parent of Prithvi Pavan Shah - IV B)

Dear Madam, 

It was a lovely day at school on the sports day with all the kids performing brilliantly. They displayed determination, perseverance and exciting sporting spirit. It was even great to see the school’s sportsmanship in welcoming a young talented student as the chief guest which the kids can easily connect to. This also motivates our young budding stars to push themselves in attaining the best in them.

 It was a great delight to see how the young boys and girls perfected the coordination of swinging their hands and limbs while marching ahead in full focus during the March past.

The cheer from the peers, teachers and the parents added encouragement to the fun. The best about our sports day is participation from all- an opportunity for all the children to showcase their prowess and learn about healthy competition.

Kudos to the teachers for taking out so much time and efforts in making this a memorable day, full of fun and cheer.

Best regards,

Vishal Bhandari

(Parent of Ridhaan Bhandari 4B)

Respected Teachers,


Sports Day for Pre- primary is a testimony of your Hard work and patience. Making the tiny tots understand multiple instructions and perform in front of a huge crowd is surely commendable. Not even a single child threw a tantrum or cried, they were exhibiting confidence, walking tall during the parade !! 

Special mention for the Magician Bhumika Ma’am under whose guidance all kids put up a beautiful show !! 

The makeover of 1st floor is beautiful. Anushka actually came and told me that she has got a new school within AVM !!




Mother of Anushka Jain- PS C)

Dear Mam/Sir,

I really want to appreciate and acknowledge the wonderful efforts of AVM Juhu Pre-primary division, in their creative and co ordination pursuits, for putting up a fabulous show at the AVM Juhu Preprimary sports meet, 2019.Tremendous efforts to all the teachers, volunteers and children for putting up yet another spectacular show.

We are awed every time.

Thanks and Regards,

Respected Principal Mam,

This is to express our deep gratitude towards the splendid Balsatsang event organised by Pre Primary section.

No rain… no winds… no showers could refrain our tiny performers from showcasing a thundering stellar performance at the Balsatsang held on 04th August. 

The efforts taken by Rushali Miss for Prep 1 B was clearly displayed in each child then be with the dance steps or expressions or even the confidence displayed when speaking the dialogues.

We would personally like to thank you for the beautifully groomed Jiana we have now… we sent our cute flamboyant child to AVM and can notice her transformation into this confident little girl… Can see how impeccable she’s on the stage not just with her own dialogues but even with someone else’s if required to …now that’s some level of confidence and promptness every parent wants their child to have!!! 

Yet again…cant thank you Ms. Bhumika Pillai and Ms. Rushali Malde enough for having surpassed our expectations and just getting better by the day at everything….

Thanking you,
With Warm Regards,

Arathi & Chintan

Starting school is a milestone in children’s life and the transition from play school to Prep 1 ,involves changes in many aspects of their everyday lives. AND with a teacher like you the transition has been v smooth.

PREP 1s balsatsung  which was held recently , was really the best . All the kids performed well on stage without any drop in their energy levels .I would like to thanyou Maam, for your efforts which went in preparing them. It was a treat to watch them on stage .

Dear Alka Mam,

My heartiest congratulations to you, Bhumika Miss and the entire teaching and support staff for the fabulous Pre-Primary Balsatsang event organised on 04th Aug 2019.

As the invite rightly said it was ‘A whole new world’. The entire backdrop, costume and music was perfect and in sync with the theme. It was overwhelming to watch the young citizens barely 3-5 years of age come to stage and confidently perform in front of the audience. Right from the beginning till the end children maintained their rythm and energy level. It truly reflected on the time, effort, discipline and patience put in by the teachers and support staff in producing such a spectacular show. 

In spite of the challenging weather we could see all the staff present, wearing a smile. Not to miss the inspiring efforts put in by Mrs Bharti Dua, the class teacher. Post the event we could see the whole class give her a big hug. She also praised the kids for their commitment and efforts.

A special mention of the Indian segment showcased in the end which was extremely enthralling and beautifully performed by the kids, it just left all of us with a feeling of love and pride for our country.

We were proud to see our child being a part of this wonderful event and are truly appreciative of our forward looking school which believes in developing future ready happy individuals imbibing human values.

Thanks and Regards,

Tejal and Uday Gurunath

Dear Madam,

The Pre-Primary Balsatsang event on August 4,  2019 was truly well organised. 

The concept and theme was thoughtfully planned and presented. The kids performance was energetic and entertaining. It was heartening to see a large audience despite heavy rainfall which reflects the excitement to be a part of the event. 

We are proud that our son Parth R Choksi (PP II  Division B) is being imparted with good values at a young age.

We would like to thank and congratulate the teachers and the school management for organising this wonderful event.

Thanks and Regards

Parents of Parth R Choksi PP II B

Respected principal madam,

This is a single letter to appreciate the hat trick of wonderful Bal Satsang performances. You might wonder what hat trick. I take this opportunity to clarify. My daughter, Sarvagjna Doshi studies in Prep II C and I have witnessed three wonderful years of well designed and executed Bal Satsang programs, to be specific
1. Jal hai to kal hai (2017-18)
2. Gratitude (2018-19)
3 Global Citizens 

There is so much research that goes into making these types of programs successful. Days, weeks and months are invested into script writing, costumes designing and selection , camera arrangements, music and above all practising with such young children of various abilities and changing moods.
Thanks to you and your entire team. This letter would be incomplete without the mention of Bhumika teacher and Charmy teacher, their patience in working with the students is commendable. For the past two years I thought it would be very cheesy to write and appreciate but have realised that not expressing gratitude would be worse, hence am penning this one. With great pride and satisfaction of putting my child in the right institution , I once again thank you for everything.

Respected Madam,

We, parents of Maahi Nachnanee studying in Prep 2 ‘B’ would like to thank and congratulate you and your entire team who were a part of the BalSatsang held on 4th of August.

Looking forward to be a part of many more such wonderful events.

AVM, Juhu.


Let me take this opportunity to congratulate you and your talented team of pre primary teachers for a fun and successful Bal Satsang on 4th August, 2019.

It was a wonderful concept of visiting 6 countries and learning about their culture, heritage and such nuances that was not known to us. Thank you for educating all of us through this platform. Like always, this time too, we saw more than what we expected. All the kids performed their best and it was heartwarming to see the older kids guide the younger ones, while they were volunteering. To us, it was a fine display of one culture, one family! We are so proud to be a part of this esteemed value based institution. 

All this I believe, is truly the credit of All of our fantastic team of pre- primary teachers who worked as a team, led by our subject head, Mrs. Bhumika Pillai. All of them put in their heart and soul to make sure our little ones enjoyed their performance, and it showed onstage. It was a beautiful sight to see the teachers guiding the kids their steps while they were on stage and teachers seated below. What a way to direct, guide and influence our young ones who were only looking at their respective teachers while parents were enjoying looking at the kids…. it was the teachers performances too that deserved to be applauded! So much of hardwork and effort, hats off to each one of them!! 

My special thanks to our Prep 2 B class teacher Mrs. Amrita Pai, who trained the kids on the South Africa theme. Her energy, enthusiasm, warmth and confidence was so inspiring that my son, Hurshvardhan would come home and practice on the Afro Jazz, and Taki Taki song almost all day followed by his dialougues. We heard him say- Alexa! Please play Taki Taki almost several times a day:-)  Any guests or family that visited us, had to see his performance, as he would insist on showing them what he is learning at school. That was the level of his excitement. That showed how much kids enjoyed being a part of this wonderful journey of Bal Satsang. Thanks Amrita teacher for being an inspiration to my son and the rest of the kids, for teaching and taking care of them with love and discipline. 

Once again, a big Thank You to the institution that is not leaving any stone unturned to shape up the future of our little hearts and indeed making them future ready! 

Thanks and loads of love, gratitude and best wishes to all our gurus!

Congratulations and Kudos!!

Respected Madam,

It has always been a pleasure to be at the much awaited Bal Satsang at A.V.M. Juhu to see all the kids geared up for their wonderful performances.

This year upscaled to a new level by drawing inferences across 2 different generations, 2 different topics between the formation of diversely United India and the today’s favourite sport – football team.

Personally, Sardar Patel has been my ideal since my teenage years and to see his story of perseverance,focus,inclusiveness and taking everyone together through the kids’ eyes was a spectacular and a memorable one.

I really loved the way the teachers had put up the efforts to show the growing kids that if teamwork under the IRON MAN’s leadership has brought together varied cultures to transform into a democratic India , how easy it would be for the young kids to work towards a team goal.

That Sunday morning reminded us of how Sardar envisioned Unity through his quote

‘Manpower without Unity is not a strength unless it is harmonized and united properly, then it becomes a spiritual power

Most importantly, It’s always our privilege to listen to our respected principal’s insightful words which are very inspiring and giving goosebumps over the deep thoughts about the kids.We always really look forward to her for her kind words.

Best regards

Dear and Respected;

Principal, Teachers, Office bearers and Students (Primary Std3,4 & PS-A of AVM Juhu).

We would like to take this opportunity to thank and congratulate each and every one of you for inviting us and making us part of this amazing experience that Balsatsang offers.

Not only does this program create an amazing memories for our children, it also takes us back to our childhood and refreshes the nostalgic events from our school days.

Many a times we wish our events were as better as what our children experience from your wonderful ideas…

This Balsatsang was with one of the most important topic that should be known, understood, and highly respected.

We know loads about our independence, freedom struggle. But the efforts and the meticulous working that was carried out by Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel was priceless.

Today’s India, which is beautifully diverse, complex and poles apart in ideologies was brought together by this great man and was so beautifully presented in the program.

Hats off to the temperament of the teachers to extract such creative performance from the tiny tots..

We wish you all the very best and hoping to experience such fantastic events in the near future.

Thank you once again and God bless.


Yogesh and Vrrinda Dalvi.

Namaste !!

Dear Madam / Sir /Teachers,

Thank you.

As I write this letter I can’t help but look back at all the wonderful years that I have spent here. I look back with joy, gratitude and a longing for the years to repeat itself.

I remember my first day as a fourth standard student which began this amazing journey of becoming a part of the Arya Vidya Mandir Family…

The last six years have gone by so fast; it seems only yesterday when I first set my foot in the premises finding my way up to the class. What hit me then was that the teachers were so approachable that I never felt uncomfortable despite being a new student.

Throughout the years the school helped us explore various fields and opportunities. They gave such importance to all – rounded development that they would set new test papers and re-explain the entire concepts that we may have missed. I can’t even remember the number of times I have approached them with one doubt or another, and how they would take time from their short breaks to clarify it. Even during the boards despite the large number of doubts which we all had the teachers would patiently solve all of them. I remember giving a myriad of papers and regardless of when and how many, they would jot down my mistakes to ensure perfection. I would like to thank all the teachers for going the extra mile to help us by even solving doubts over the phone before exams and motivating us.

As I conclude this letter I am filled with nostalgia knowing that this may be the last time I write on the foolscap sheets we used to use for subject reviews, the last time that the top right corner of a page will have my name and roll number.
Finally I would like to say Namaste and a big thank you to all the teachers and the entire AVM family.

Yours faithfully,

Siddarth Aananth

Respected Madam,

We have long been wishing to write this letter to let you know how much we appreciate everything that Beena teacher, Harini teacher & Sangeeta teacher have done for our daughter, Paramita, as a student of Prep I-A in academic year 2018-19. It is too easy to get tied up in the daily schedule and many engagements, but this is one thing we did not want to forget. So, here is our letter of gratitude, our note of Thank You.

We are glad that Paramita made progress in all aspects under guidance of Beena teacher: She learned to colour pictures, her writing speed and handwriting improved, her attention span widened, she learned to share, she learned to open up to other children and her social personality bloomed. Now she often proactively seeks introduction or introduces herself to new children.

One key progress that made us the happiest is how she overcame her hyper sensitivity – her fear of crowds, loud noises and activities like jumping, running etc. It’s a testament to teachers’ keen personal attention towards students that they noticed her fear in the dance activity at the Bal Satsang. It could easily be brushed off as just another childhood behaviour that she’d overgrow eventually. We too would let it pass were they not to call the meeting and let us know that it’d be in her best interest to consult an occupational therapist. They allayed our fears in the meeting and worked on Paramita personally to help her desensitize and gain better control of herself. The changes caused in her by Ms Beena teacher, Sangeeta teacher & Harini teacher’s efforts and encouragement had us all marvelled. She has as a result grown stronger, resilient and more ready for this world.

Nobody knows better than a parent how difficult it can be to handle a young one – Except perhaps for a teacher. One wants to let the children free, play to their heart’s content and not worry about a thing; but one also wants them to be disciplined, responsible and well-behaved. It is a tough balancing act in which one always runs the risk of swinging too far to the either extreme, causing children to be too reckless or too feeble. A parent can only hope that the teachers their daughter is entrusted with understand this. And the teachers at the AVM indeed treaded that fine line perfectly. They managed to juggle between being amiable and being disciplined, all the while being very attentive. To us, as parents, it was more than just relieving; it was inspiring.

Thank you.

Thank you, Ms. Sangeeta, for all the creative and practical advices that helped us be better parents. The exercises with clay and atta helped Paramita gain a stronger grip and thus a better writing. You suggested to let her sit on the kitchen counter while I cooked – The clatter, clang and sizzle of the kitchen helped lower her fear of noise and this also gave us some fun, memorable mother-daughter bonding time.

Thank you, Ms. Beena, for being one of the few people besides her parents who Paramita trusts (while playing) on the slides. For being such a positive influence on her life that she still speaks of you with adoration. For being patient with the little girl who liked to watch other children play outside and cajoling her attention back to the class. Your efforts manifest in every alphabet she writes and every picture she colours.

Thank you, Ms. Harini, for assiduously working on Paramita so she faced her fears and overcame them. For checking in on her often to see if she is comfortable and doing well in the class. For reminding us that being over-protective does a child more harm than good – that sometimes it’s better to let the child be, to let her climb stairs on their own, jump on the sofa and sometimes even fall off. I still remember the elation I felt when I saw her jumping on a sofa joyously, without any hint of fear.

As she journeys on to be the best person she can be, Paramita is sure to look back at the teachers at the AVM with gratitude and fondness for everything that you’ve done to help her along the way.

Yours sincerely,

Dr Pramod Nikalje and Mrs Amita Nikalje

Dear Madam,
Viraat’s first year at AVM was quite an uphill journey for him and both of us. As he completes the second year, we fondly look back on his time in Twinkle teacher’s class.

As parents, we could not have asked for his needs to be taken care of any better. Twinkle teacher’s patient demeanour, constant encouragement and tireless efforts EVERY SINGLE DAY, makes us believe that God surely looks after all his children.

Today thanks to her able guidance and warmth, Viraat has bloomed in a way that was, at a point, difficult for us to imagine. She engaged him constantly and he always came home happy.

We express our sincerest thanks and heartfelt gratitude to twinkle teacher for having cared for him in a way that only she could. He was privileged to have been in her class and we are blessed that she was his teacher this year.

Dear Maam,
I Sheeta Jhaveri mother of Naisha Jhaveri and Aanya Jhaveri would like to inform you that I am one of the lucky mothers to have Dipali Teacher as the class teacher for both my daughters in Prep II. She is enthusiastic, caring, loving, and strict but in a nice caring way that kids even love her strictness. There are so many adjectives which can be attached to her that the list can go on. My elder daughter Naisha Jhaveri who is in Std. II till date goes everyday to meet Dipali teacher. This is the impact she has on her students. My younger daughter Aanya Jhaveri who is studying in Prep II A, for her a promise given to Dipali teacher means it cannot be broken. I really appreciate her DEDICATION towards her kids which can be said is on a different level.

Here is something for Dipali teacher from both my kids- “ To the world you may just be a teacher but to my girls you are a HERO”.

Thank you for everything from bottom of our hearts.

Yours truly,

Sheetal Jhaveri

Dear Madam,
My child is a student of 9th std in your school. We are writing this email
to express our gratitude towards you and the AVM group for being so
considerate about the students. Thank you for keeping a simple syllabus
for the second term exams. This has reduced so much burden and stress and
has given the students a breather before they start preparing for the
board exams.

We would also want to thank you for reducing the school hours for 9th and
10th std. This to my mind was a huge step and will do a world of good to
the students.

These are couple of instances. But we as parents have always appreciated
this approach of the school management. The school has never been obsessed
with putting undue pressure on the kids and have always stressed on a
balanced development. This approach has not affected the final marks which
the kids get in their 10th exam as the kids have always been delivering
excellent results.

The school has also implemented a number of initiatives based on the
feedback of parents like the school app and the one day outstation trips
being organised by the school for senior classes. Most schools tend to
send kids to exotic locales which defeats the purpose of excursion.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your and the teams
efforts and wish you the best for continuing the good work.

Thanks and Regards

A big heartfell “thank you” to Nihar’s favorite teacher. This year has been amazing for him under your love and care. He has grown and blossomed beautifully with your guidance.

Whether it was learning, playing celebrating or having fun. Your support has been the best. You truly have been his “hero” at school and he adores you.

Can’t thank you enough for everything.

Dear Ashwini Teacher,

This is a thank you note for the wonderful Prep II year that you have given to all the kids of your class. I can say that as Savir has grown up a lot in terms of intellect and vocabulary this year. I have already thanked you for the way you have introduced phonics to him and the entire class. I am so glad I didn’t have to put any extra efforts for the same. He now has an immense interest in learning new spellings.

I have been extremely happy with the reader which was introduced to them which has helped them to read and learn so many words and so much grammar.

The monthly books introducing different concepts have been good too. But he has been talking countries and Solar system with such ease; it is good to know how much they can learn at this age.

The highlight of this year has definitely been their one-day trip to Sky-Chef, learning about how to wash veggies and fruits and the giant refrigerator. On how to pack food for the flights and the goody box was the cherry on top.
The sports day and Balsatsung like all years had been excellent and well managed this year too. The yearend role play activities and the last paint day activity was the most talked about in our house describing how they collected coupons and stamps and sat in rockets and went to a hospital to cure a teddy bear. These activities really leave a good impression on the kids and are the best way to utilize their yearend days with memories. The graduation day for all our kids was one of the best parting day for them with hats and coats and thank you for the cute little handwritten card-we have heard him read the card a thousand times to everyone who came home and shying away at the words” love Ashwini Teacher”.

The year has been wonderful and fulfilling in terms of knowledge learnt and activities done.

Thanks and Regards,

Respected Principal ma’am,

My dear son, Meherzen Mehta has successfully completed his pre-primary this year from Prep 2 B.

I have no words to express my gratitude for all the love, care, kindness, knowledge, support and help showered on my Meherzen by your team of pre-primary teachers.

Meherzen was just 2.3 years old when he joined AVM, Juhu and we were soo nervous as he hardly spoke and was an introvert child. But  AVM helped him express his views, think out of box, imagine, talk and be a smart boy that he is today.

He has excelled in studies, talking, making friends, be kind, polite, loving, sharing, understanding and on the most he is very sensitive and caring towards others. Thank you to all the teachers he has been with
PS teachers Rushali ma’am, Sunita ma’am
Prep 1 teacher Usha ma’am and
Prep 2 teacher Puja Chibber ma’am.
I just can’t thank enough to these beautiful ladies. They have been always their for him and with him. Thank you!

My special thanks to Bhumika Pillai ma’am for always taking care of everything, she just knows every minute details of all the children of whole pre primary section, it’s awesome. She is a true leader. Hats off to her view, creativity, leadership qualities and knowledge. She is always on her toes. Thank you Bhumika ma’am.

Alka ma’am, thank you for everything. You have been the pillar of our school. The school has progressed in a very beautiful manner in your tenure. The success is just Immeasurable. You are a boon to the school. We’ll miss you alot as your tenure comes to an end. But you’ll always stay in our heart as you are the first Principal of our dear child and you have given soo much happiness to our children. Thank you for everything. Wishing you all the best. 

Love and regards,

Mrs. Rashmi Mehta

Dear Principal ma’am,

I would first like to thank all for grooming my son to become a responsible boy. His journey from Nursery to Sr. kg (Pre -primary). Will miss pre primary teachers.

Heartiest congratulations! for the amazing Balsatsang..I would like to appreciate the effort put by Shilpi ma’am behind all the kids.
“Gratitude” – beautiful subject selected by Bhumika ma’am..hats off to the entire team of AVM Juhu..Due to the subject my son Mansh Dwivedi- Prep 2 “C” is started respecting the people around us like the maid who comes to clean our house, the car cleaner etc..
e.g.:- just after the Balsatsang our car cleaner had not come so someone from the family scolded him n Mansh comes n says don’t scold him he is working so hard to earn his money…n we all were shocked..This is all because of values given by AVM n special thanks to Shilpi ma’am.  

I would like to thand Shilpi ma’am for guiding Mansh n me for all his drawbacks n helped me how to work out things with mansh, due to her guidance we have seen a drastic change in Mansh verbal n writting..Shilpi ma’am is known mansh from the playschool n always takvem care of him as a mother n taught him as a teacher. Thank you so much for all the things n looking forward for future gudiance.

Dear Teachers,

Please read the thoughts penned down by one of our outgoing std. X student !  Thanks for making school life memorable for her !

Smt. Ramdevi Sobhraj Arya Vidya Mandir Juhu. This place has not only helped me grow as an individual, by teaching me academics and subjects, but has also embedded in me my values, which I shall possibly never forget. It has been thirteen years today, when I first entered this school, holding on to my mother’s fingers tightly. I was scared. Not of the fact that I shall get lost in this new world, but mainly of the fact that my mother shall not be there to protect me, hold me when i was about to fall or correct me if i was to make a mistake. But soon it was to change.Each one of us are different in his/her own way. I was a baby who later loved going to school and hated coming back home. I know that’s strange!!!

School has always been a happy’place for me, where I could play all day long, cry when I felt uncomfortable only because my teacher could lift me up in her arms, fight n giggle with friends and my list can go on.

The teaching faculty, didis, bhaiyas and the management of AVM has always been very supportive. They have always tried their best to make us feel comfortable and cheerful. From basic etiquettes like greeting the teachers, thanking the didis and bhaiyas , helping our peers has been taught to us since our playgroup. Earlier I would crib for the fact that we were asked to chant the Gayatri Mantra everyday in the morning, asked to perform Havan every Monday and say our prayers before our meals. But the same, today when I am about to step out in the big world, I understand the true essence of these practices. The world outside is surely not pure and helpful but we have learnt to adjust according to our surroundings. I shall never forget the Friday rush in the canteen as that was our cheat day, pleading our teachers for a free period, the lab experiments have been fascinating and our computer classes would silently n secretly become our play games sessions instead of completing our assignments. The little fights, the expressions, the laughs, the gossip and mainly the affection that friends have shared shall be cherished by me forever. The solo singing, plays, the elocution competitions and debates has given me enough opportunities to stage my talent and overcome my shyness . I can never thank my school enough for all this. I would love to express my sincere gratitude to all those people who have helped me pass through this phase of life. I feel emotional, overwhelmed as well as happy at this moment as we all are about to enter a new phase of our lives. I wish each one of my classmates all the very best and hope they achieve all their goals. I hope destiny shall make us meet once again. Till then……

As a parent it was amazing to see my child up there with her friends looking so pretty as flowers and happily dancing away at the music, .well guided by the teachers and supported all the way by the volunteers.

Apart from encouraging them to come and perform in front of people, this Balsatsang conveyed an excellent message to the kids and to us as well, something the kids need to learn in this age of abundance.

Fortunately for me.. I had three kids of the family in the programme..two performing and one volunteering. And the message to show gratitude and appreciate what we have has been repeated over and over at my home..thanks to the wonderful medium the school used to convey the same.

Most schools have fancy annual days..our school displays the integrated efforts and the synchronization.. of all involved..a sense of belongingness one doesn’t feel if it is left to professionals.

A big thank you to Bharti Teacher and Zarna Teacher for helping my bud bloom into a flower.

When you’re heart is filled with so much gratitude and you want to express it all, it is very hard to keep it short and crisp. Nonetheless, we have tried our best to summarise what we felt today through this note of gratitude. 

A note of gratitude from us – parents of Swara Subramaniam, student of Prep 2 C, AVM Juhu. 

We are a couple in which one of us is a civilian and the other a retired colonel’s son. We wish for our children to know both the ways of life – each having lessons of its own to teach and learn from. 

Today when our daughter along with her classmates honoured the armed forces they showed us they understand and respect both the ways of life. And for this we are eternally grateful to AVM. 

Gratitude they say is the healthiest human emotion to express . The more you express gratitude, the more likely you will have even more to express gratitude for. 

How blessed are our children to be taught this lesson of life, for life at AVM so early on. 

And today they taught the Marwah hall full of adults lessons in gratitude. That is why every adult was standing on their feet and applauding them. 

They filled our hearts with so much gratitude and joy that our eyes could not hold back the tears of happiness. 

This most certainly would not have been possible without the efforts of every teacher, didi, bhaya, volunteer (parent volunteers and student volunteers) of the pre primary section and last but not the least the young participants themselves. 

Teaching is a very noble profession as it shapes the character, calibre and future of an individual. Our children are blessed to be under the daily watch of every individual who is part of the pre primary section at AVM lead by our respected principal Mrs Alka Aggarwal and Mrs Bhumika Pillai- who have the constant blessing and guidance  of the AVM management. 

To our class teacher , Mrs Puja all we can say is a teacher plants the seeds of knowledge, sprinkles them with love and patiently nurtures their growth to produce tomorrows dream. 

Puja Ma’am has done this the past entire year she has been with our children with a warmth and smile that the children and we will miss as they move away from the pre – primary section. 

Coming together is a beginning,
Keeping together is progress ,
Working together is success … and that is the team work that has been displayed at every successful event held by the pre Primary department at AVM. 

Team work makes the dream work and Kudos to every individual involved in making the Bal Satsang the grand success it was today. 

Utmost gratitude forever and always, 

Suraksha and Vijay Subramaniam

Subj: Gratitude

Respected Mrs. Kumar,

Namaste ! I write these few lines to offer my gratitude to you and your skilled to you and your skilled team of teaches for all the care, support and love offered to my child.

Kiefer joined AVM last year. This movement from his previous school, locality was to sudden death of his father. He was very close to his dad and the loss had impacted him transforming him immensely. Both of were going through different stages of grief. To address it we went through professional grief counselling.

When I took Kiefer’s admission in AVM, I was told that I was taking him to one of the best institutions in Mumbai. Today when I have completed 1 year 6 months of association with the school, I can proudly say my decision of moving him to AVM was one of the best for him.

Starting with the way he was welcome by his III B class teacher Karisma miss and subject head Claudette teacher. How to deal with weak moments and overcome his self limited belief was taught by the Resource Room teacher – Vasihnavi Miss. When Claudette Miss eft, I was nervous, however, in no time Ranjita Miss took her place. What s unique in all the names witten above is, they understand Child psychology and accept children as they are. They leverage the children strength and work on the areas of opportunity. Moreover children’s overall development is looked upon rather than any particular area.

Today when I look back I feel the school, teachers had mad tremendous impact on Kiefer’s development. He is confident, speaks his mind out and loves and acknowledge what AVM has given him. I am on of the greatest promoter AVM can have. You treat all children as your own by inculcating the right values. This school is not commercial as others, its more of human which we seldom experience/see in today’s world.

I would like to close by stating “ A very Big THANK YOU” to you for holding the valued behaviors and staff together. The way you deal with sensitive issues is worth mentioning. Do let me know if I can be of any help to the school.

AVM Bandra and its staff “rocks”

Thank you

Dear Principal,

I’m Rashmi Mehta, mother of Meherzen Mehta from prep 2 B (2018-19).

I had this greatest opportunity to go along with our prep 2 children and teacher on their fun-filled and educational trip to Nehru Science Centre as a parent volunteer on 4th January, 2019 and I have no words to express my gratitude to your team of teachers from Prep2.

Our class teacher Puja Chibber ma’am is extremely knowledgeable; I got to learn many things from her on the trip. The way she explained children everything during the trip with zest and happiness is simply commendable. I have never seen a teacher with such an amazing patient level and love for children. We are very blessed that Meherzen is her student. The way she had come all prepared for the trip with the big bag filled with all the utilities for children was very thoughtful and kind of her. A big thank you to our dearest Puja teacher.

Bhumika ma’am was loving towards children, taking care of everyone and everything. I was so amazed when she helped a little girl in bus with her vomit and she helped her get clean, I have no words. The amount of love and care that was poured on our children by teacher’s is impeccable. We as parents really can’t ask for more. 

The trip was enjoyed to the core by children. Everyone were extremely thrilled by the show and knowledge imparted. Meherzen just couldn’t stop talking about the solar system, global warming, cave man, dinosaur, aircraft, wheels, funny mirrors, aquarium and vegetables to his father when we returned home. It was a real fun trip. Thank you for everything.

Thank you Principal Ma’am for having such great team of ladies on the board. AVM Juhu surely rocks with because of you and great team of loving teacher’s.

Thank you for everything.

Mrs. Rashmi Mehta

Respected Madam,

When Kiwa lost her grandfather and grandmother within a month time, we were really worried about how she would cope. You have been so kind and sympathetic with her, we really hold you in high reward for the way in which you have look after her at school during her trying times.

We thank you and all teachers for creating a warm classroom atmosphere.

Childhood memories are the fondest once. They  gave you soul, they mold you being. Their force has an impact greater than other memories.

One such memory that Kiwa will remember in the long years is when the principal of the school sat with her in the canteen to comfort her. Little ones hold their teachers in high rewards.

Good memories make good people.

Kiwa tells me how open you are to hearing any problem your children might have and how generous you are with your time.

The school, principal  and teachers have shown support and fondness, this has increased her confidence. Kiwa misses her grandparents very much , but is able to speak about her happy memories of them in a brave and grown up way.

Many thanks to all the teachers. They are an absolute credit to your institution.

You are truly doing God’s work.

With heartfelt thank and warm wishes.

Respected Madam,

My son Mst. Revaant Joshi is studying in Prep. 2 A in your esteem school. I would like to thank you and the teachers of Pre-Primary section for all the wonderful celebrations conducted in school, be it festivals like Ganapati or Diwali and special days like Children’s Day. The teachers have put in so much thought and effort in each celebration to make a memorable experience for the children.

During the Ganapati festival the teachers had prepared a special act and dance performance to make our children understand the important message of having eco-friendly Ganapati idols. These values and thoughts given to children at an early age by their teachers help them to be responsible citizens of the future. I would also like to mention that children thoroughly enjoyed the games, magic show and other activities held during the Children’s Day celebration in school and had lots of fun. I had volunteered for the children’s day event and saw all the happiness around.

Once again I would like to thank you, Bhumika teacher, Bageshree teacher and all the Pre-Primary teachers for their efforts to give our children such wonderful experiences and on their continual efforts to keep children happy in the school.

Warm regards,

Respected Principal ma’am,

I was privileged to attend parenting session held on 23rd October, 2018 having topic conventional parenting versus contemporary parenting.

I was amazed to see teacher’s involvement in searching all those small video clips about parenting from various movies, epic daily soaps and role plays conducted by them. All the teachers are always so full of life, energy, are creative and helpful.

We as parents are doing our bit and no one is perfect and these sessions just adds a little magic to our parenting with all the little guidance and suggestions provided by you all.

I had once read that handling children is way easier as they are empty cup and open for new ideas but handling parents is tricky but your team surely knows how to handle big children (parents).

Resource room teachers are very sweet. I have seen Sakshi ma’am handling children with such love and kindness and answering to queries.

Best part of every parenting session is you our Dear Principal Mrs. Alka Agrawal. You have these small cute and amazing solutions to all the queries of all parents. The tips you give are just “wow”. Anyone and everyone can relate with all the simple solutions you have. We are in best hands as our Principal is the best. You are always so down to earth, cordial and smiling.

Thank you to you, our subject head Bhumika Pillai ma’am, our class teacher Puja Chibber ma’am, all the teacher’s and entire team AVM.

Thank you for everything.

Exuberant AVM Juhu Balsatsang show held on 12 August 2018!!!!

Dear Madam

We as parents, of our dear daughter studying in Std III C of AVM Juhu, will like to extend our heartiest congratulations to the entire AVM Juhu team led by the principal and her able team of enthusiastic and energetic teachers. I must acknowledge that AVM has a fantastic concept of presenting the Bal Satsang year on year (being witnessed by us now for the 6th year). It is just so innovative and colourful and insightful.

The story of Kabuliwala, written by Rabindranath Tagore, was a wonderful theme selected for the Primary Bal satsang (Class 3 and 4). For one, this clearly highlighted to the young children the creative story-telling art by Guru Rabindranath and also of course the main theme of quality of selfless love to be imbibed by each one of us.

The efforts taken by each teacher (Namrata Miss, Preeti Miss, Vijeyta Miss, Afrin Miss, Priyanka Miss, Sharmila Miss, Music teacher, Yoga teacher under the able guidance of Alka Maam and Shefali Maam) to direct, train, guide and motivate each child to put their best on the esteemed AVM Juhu has been tremendous. And of course, the able team of Bhumika Miss and her pre-primary teachers to give such a wonderful debut to the little PS A tiny tots!

Hats off to each one of you!!!!

The concept of giving each and every child the opportunity to be on stage on this day helps each child to grow within each of them the qualities of participation, capability and confidence.

Smallest of details were taken care of and paid heed to, to compliment the excellent display by the children (set backdrops, background music, costume colours and patterns) which gave the overall programme a professional look.

It was unfortunate that the mike systems gave away on the d-day – even though the positive to highlight was the use of the portable mike systems – it was really a good idea to use the same as the characters could perform their act in a continuous flow instead of the previous year shows where they had to keep going ahead to the stationery mike. Further, even when the mike systems gave away, kudos to all the performers who continued their act with so much of ease and confidence and were not perturbed at all – it clearly shows the direction provided by all the teachers to instill the dedication and faith they had in each of their students.

All the student volunteers were also just so enthusiastic in running around in setting up the stage props, handing over the mikes, guiding the performers – surely a special thanks to these set of sincere kids!!

We are proud to be part of the AVM Juhu family and very happy that our dear daughter is being guided in the right environment with the right values!!!

Cheers to AVM Juhu!!!

Yours faithfully

“Once upon a time at Bal Satsang”

Lived the hard life…

Became the stereotype …

My kids are growing up in this hype…

And when they are almost beginning to ripe…

That morning were over balsatsang, my concept on parenting was wiped…

They (the kids) taught me not to imitate…

They taught me not to frustrate…

They taught me outdoors are their best fate…

Their best comes out, in free play, in free state…

They told me to change before it’s too late…

And here I am sitting, in stalemate… 🙁

I know it’s going to be hard to change…

I know, I am going to come across as being strange…

But balsatsang has got me in my head all rearranged…

Once upon a time, when yet in the balsatsang’s range,

The right parenting for my FAKE, I exchange. 🙂

A very sincere Thank You to Arya Vidya Mandir and Family.

Dear Mam,

I, Vianca Varma, would like to express my heartfelt gratitude to the school for supporting and encouraging me through the World Skating Championship at Arnhem, Netherlands.

Representing India at the Inline Freestyle Roller Skating Championship was an experience to cherish for a lifetime.  To carry the Indian flag with all pride and prestige in the opening ceremony completely renewed the energy and gusto within me.  It was an incredible learning experience to interact with judges and about numerous skating techniques and tricks and it also helped develop bonds between us bringing out our interpersonal skills.  There was great confidence building just before my run and the zeal that filled within us to hear he marks of any of the members of the Indian team made us realize that irrespective of the marks or position we receive as a team, it was essential to put up a memorable and energetic performance to leave a positive mark and keep the Indian flag flying high which was well achieved.

Without the collective support of the school and respected teachers, this would have been nearly impossible.  I thank you once again.

Yours sincerely,

Vianca Varma


Dear Mrs. Kumar,

Greetings for the day!

I, Sandhya Varma, would like to express my heartfelt gratitude towards you, school and the management for supporting and encouraging Vianca Varma through the competition.

Vianca Varma recently represented India at the World Inline Freestyle Skating Championship held at Arnhem – Netherlands, 5th -8th July 2018. It was an honour to hold our tricolour and represent the country at this platform. She was one of the nine member Indian contingent comprising of the best across the country. Vianca competed in the Classic Slalom event with utmost grace performing intricate tricks with absolute ease, perfect rhythm in sync with music. She was appreciated for her artistic prowess and the finesse in her presentation.

It was an incredible exposure interacting with the judges, coaches and the best skaters from around the world and learning from each other’s experience. Some pictures from the event have been attached here after.

She earlier represented Maharashtra at the National Roller Skating Championship in January and came 2nd in India.

I would once again like to thank you and the management, for all this wouldn’t have been possible without your support.

Warm Regards,

Sandhya Varma

Dear Mrs. Jyoti Kumar,

A heartfelt thank you for this fabulous opportunity given to Jai to participate in the ISDS programme. These platforms are super learning forums that give immense exposure to the child and definitely go a long way. Exposure to a larger talent pool and competition and real world subjects where students experience a simulated environment has helped Jai understand his strengths and improvement areas. He has absorbed the importance of thinking on his feet with limited preparation time. He is lucky to have the opportunity to be able to do what he is doing and also all he has been doing in the past. Thank you once again.

Feedback on “Tell me More”

 Dear Principal  & Teachers,

                    I would like to applaud the “Tell Me More” initiative take by the school. It’s heartening to see the school take such a keen and active interest in each and every child and attempt to provide suitable opportunities and platforms for them to further develop their potential. 

           I especially appreciate the time my son’s class teacher, Ms. Priyanka Sharma of 4B, spent with me to learn all about Arjun’s interests, hobbies and talents. It was an open, encouraging and best of all, unhurried discussion in which she continuously prompted me to share as much and more about Arjun’s varied interests and talents. 

           I found this session extremely beneficial because, as we know, all children do not have the same ability to be bold and outspoken about their thoughts, likes and interests and thus, many may remain unnoticed. I am thankful to the school for this opportunity to participate in my child’s overall development and I now look forward to seeing the positive impact and outcome from this initiative for my child as well as for all the children in school.

“You can teach a student a lesson for a day; but if you can teach him to learn by creating curiosity, he will continue the learning process as long as he lives”. …and that’s what our pre-primary teachers endeavour to do with our children on an on-going basis.

In this mail I want to appreciate all the hard work teachers our putting in to create a conducive and enriching environment for our Little ones to learn and explore.

My daughter was thrilled, excited and awed with the recent Activity – Engaging Minds – Sensory Integration which was held in the school. She explained me in the minute detail on what all she did from making shapes in shaving foam and maida , to recognising taste and smell of different things, playing with balls in the pool, to experiencing how different surfaces and substances feel when touched and lot more this is what we call learning.

I appreciate all the effort all the pre-primary teachers are taking in the leadership of Bhumika miss.

This is creativity at its best.

Would also like thank my daughter’s class teacher for making each day memorable and fun.

Respected Madam,

We want to express our genuine tanks for your guidance and support to the children to make this year’s ‘Balsatsang’ event, memorable and enjoyable like every year. We all greatly enjoyed the song/dance performance of “Jai Ho”. The theme was outstanding and coordination among children on the stage was appreciable, starting from costume to props used in the very dance were up to the mark. And, special thanks to make the arrangements in a very short span.

Your hard work and dedication was visible on stage which we all, especially the grandparents, enjoyed and appreciated a lot.

Thank You all the teachers out there.

With sincerest appreciation.

Dear Madam,

I would like to congratulate you and all the teachers involved in the making the Balsatsang such a huge success. The efforts gone in to put up such a good show was very evident from the performance put up by the children. Gandhiji’s values were brought to light in a simple and fun way that cut across all age groups.

I’m sure there must have been some trying times for the teachers in getting the children ready for the D-day but the final performance that came up on the stage was amazing. The confidence with which the children were performing showed the hard work that the teachers had put into it.

I’m glad to send my daughter to a school, that takes efforts to identify the potential of the children and work towards making it better.

I would like to thank all the teachers especially Namrata Miss(Class teacher-4 B) for taking the efforts to groom our children for the wonderful morning we had.

Thank You.

With Warm Regards,

To the Principal and all teachers of Arya Vidya Mandir,

As a parent, I have seen my child, her classmates and all her friends interacting and I must compliment that school on something I see in common in all students of AVM. There is confidence without the sense of entitlement that is becoming rampant in all large cities of the world. Humility, without being over powered, is the greatest of all graces I can hope will hold my child in good stead all her life. And I thank you for that.

Dear AVM,

After leaving the hallowed halls of the most safe place on Earth for me, I went on to gruelling years of Med School, Internship, two masters programmes, an internship, residency and then unending hours of work before becoming the Clinical Director of a State of the Art infertility clinic. I have always been able to go back to the things I learnt in AVM that allowed me to make the best choices, often not the easiest choices, and know that if I do it right, I will feel better about it. My moral compass has never left me and it is the greatest tool I have today — as an Infertility Specialist, as a Doctor and as a Human Being.

Dear all,

It was absolutely mesmerising to see the show put up by you all on 14th August for the pre primary balsatsang. We have been associated with AVM Juhu for past 5 years or so as my older one is in grade 3 and it’s just amazing to see how you make sure that each child feels special on stage and each parent can go home gleaming. And how you make the older kids understand there responsibility and team work by act of volunteering .

I have known Miss Bhumika Pillai and her team of teacher for many years now and they bring this absolutely stunning show every time and it’s always better than the last time as we call it raising the bar. Bhuimika Miss’s leadership and nurturing qualities are superb and I have been lucky to have her as class teacher in both my kids foundation year in school and she has left a lasting impression on my older daughter and not to miss other teachers who have been so Good as part of the journey Miss Pooja Chibbad, Bharti Miss, Usha Miss and all others in pre primary. I would earnestly like to thank all of you and Principal Ma’am for her guidance to make this journey so memorable .

We take the opportunity to appreciate the Balsatsang presented by the students of Prep 1 and Std. 3 & 4 on 19/06/2016. The theme of the programme based on the life of Mahatma Gandhi helped in reinstating the moral values in children.

The whole event was very well performed by the small kids. We really appreciate the hard work and the effort put by the teachers and the volunteers in making the programme a big success among the audience and we look forward to more such events in the AVM family.

Dear Madam,

“Find the Gandhi within yourself, for he exists in all of us”- A wonderful message conveyed by the students of classes 3 & 4, who used song, dance, drama and a healthy dose of humour to tell the audience just how important it is to awaken the Gandhi within us, especially in these morally bankrupt times.

As a parent, it was a real pleasure to watch the children demonstrate the value of those 4 most significant Gandhian principles-truth, honesty, non-violence and tolerance, using incidents from Gandhiji’s life.

Both, the children and teachers must be congratulated for giving us such a relevant and timely message in such a lively and engaging manner. The grand finale had the whole audience on its feet!

Dear Ma’am,
16th February, 2016

I am writing this to share with you how much I enjoyed this year’s Bal Satsang, ~ themed around the life of Bhagat Singh. Right from the beautifully designed invitation to the rousing grand finale, everything was planned with care, and executed with perfection. The play was extremely well-scripted, selecting relevant portions of Bhagat Singh’s life, interspersing powerful dialogue with lucid narration and songs that tugged at our emotions, and serving us a lesson in history and patriotism with an exhilarating blend of ~
education and entertainment. I cannot express how emotionally moved I was by the play and the performances. I especially appreciated the way in which the life of Bhagat Singh was placed in the context of the earlier freedom-fighters and current nation-builders, aptly reminding us that true patriotism is about having the dedication to do our best for our country at all times.

The little actors and dancers and narrators excelled in their roles, every single one of them. As you mentioned in your speech, it is reinarkable how Arya Vidya Mandir hones the talents and builds the confidence of its pupils by giving them the stage to shine upon. The ~ perfect synchronization of the performances revealed not only the talents of the students but the tremendous effort put in by the entire team of teachers, volunteers and non-teaching staff led by the inspiring and innovative Zahara Miss. I would like to thank each and everyone of them for the passion and hard work they put in, year after year, to come up with such mind-blowing productions.

I feel deeply privileged to be the parent of an Arya Vidya Mandir student. There are many, many reasons why I feel this, but to mention just one, it gave me a chance to experience a truly memorable performance.

Re: Pre-Primary Sports Day and BaI Satsang
Dear Madam Principal,
This is just a letter of deep appreciation for the efforts, creative thought, intelligent design, co-operation and inclusiveness we have witnessed during the Sports Day and the Bal Satsang.
This is Eli Tahilramani’s first year at AVM and it was our first Sports Day. We had no idea what to expect. I’ve shared this with his class teacher, Deepali, but I was amazed and impressed by the way the teachers had thought through the excellent theme. From coming up with symbiotic relationships in the animal world, dcsigning the costumes, to the way they broke down each fact into little ‘stories’ that was a pleasure for the parents to watch and a fun, educational experience for the kids. I personally really loved the way the takeaway ‘Shared parenting is half the work and twice the fun’ was presented. Kudos!
And this entire process was repeated during the Bal Satsang! The fact that every single child was on stage is a remarkable achievement. The organizational skills itself were jaw dropping; fluid movement from one skit to the next, the kids did not look stressed out, the parents were very entertained.
I know schools have severe constraints with space and time and even frankly, managing the aspirations of the parents. This is just to say thank you. The hard work,loving, enthusiastic personalities and intelligence of your teachers is very, very appreciated and this sense of co-operation is also evident in the way the parents get together to organize costumes etc…
More power to all of you!
Very warm regards,

Genesia Tahilramani

To my school, my Alma Mater,

I am grown and have a boy of my own. Now, more than ever, I find myself thinking of my life in AVM. I look back at my childhood and I see just that — a childhood. In an age when most schools were a pressure cooker, I look back and think of festivals and board decorations and projects and sports day and some amount of studies and much merriment. I salute you for doing that while still being the school we were.

Sub:Balsatsang dated 19 June, 2016

Dear Namrata Miss,

I am writing to commend you and the school for a very well organized ‘Balsatsang’. I am sure, handling such a large number of students(of this age) must be challenging. But, they did a great job!

I was very impressed with the topic. ‘Mahatma Gandhi’ is someone who everyone knows but this knowledge stays buried within us. The topic, ‘Come find the Gandhi within you’ teamed with the very inspiring skits and well-choreographed dance sequences gave us much food for thought.

Our children are indeed fortunate to be a part of this and imbibe this ‘Gandhian’ personality.

As parents, we left the hall ready to find the Gandhi within us and thereby help to make this world a better place.

Thanking You.

Yours sincerely,

Franchille Raj
