The overjoyed students attributed their success to the endeavours of their teachers, who helped them defy the challenges of COVID induced lockdowns. “All this success is the result of the hard work and dedication of my teachers. Times were really tough, everything was online, we were deprived of person-to-person communication however my teachers never allowed that to be an excuse.

The Vice Principal Shafaq Afshan congratulated the students and said, “I extend my sincerest and heartfelt compliments to the students for their stellar performances despite the lockdown and crisis precipitated by COVID. It is squarely due to the efforts of the teachers who worked tirelessly to overcome hindrances, and ensured that the students don’t feel left out in these challenging times.”
