Narsee Monjee Educational Trust's —Jamnabai Narsee School, founded in 1971, completed 50 glorious years of providing excellence in education on 17th January, 2021. At this juncture, I would like to pay my respect to the vision and planning of the late founder trustees —Shri Chatrabhujbhai, Shri Pratapbhai and Shri Dharamshibhai for creating this magnanimous institute which has over these 5 decades contributed towards the development of the nation and the world with the aim of preparing students for the future, true to the motto of the school 'Vidya Param Balam' (Sanskrit) which translates 'Knowledge is strength supreme'.
This has been a challenging year for the students with continued online learning through the academic year. We hope with the mass vaccination process, due care and government guidelines, things will come under control sooner than later.
I am happy to let you know that the Jamnabai Narsee Campus has associated with Nanavati Max Hospital as a Covid Vaccination Centre. 10000 plus vaccines were administered within the first 15 days itself, starting 7th June, 2021 and the effort will continue on an ongoing basis.
I would like to congratulate and commend the effort of the Principals of Jamnabai Narsee School Mumbai and GIFT City, and Head of Jamnabai Narsee International School and their respective teams and all the teaching and non-teaching staff for making this experience of online learning smooth, immersive and impactful. It has been our constant endeavour through this year to facilitate investments in equipment, new technologies and training and development for this purpose. A special mention must be made about the IT teams for all the support to various stakeholders —staff as well as students and parents.
I also appreciate the work of the support staff and especially the security staff, many of whom made a base in school during the multiple lockdown situations. I take this opportunity to thank our Parent Teacher Association and the Jamnabai Narsee Alumni Association for their involvement and support in various endeavours undertaken through the academic year.
I request each one of you to get vaccinated at the earliest as per the government guidelines and take maximum precaution and care as we continue our battle to end this pandemic together.
Stay Safe, Stay Healthy
