Welcome to a new school year!
As I enter my 33nd year in school leadership, I am humbled and honoured with this privilege that God has bestowed upon me. Serving the community of Nongstoin and its neighbouring regions has been deeply gratifying.
2022 was a year where we saw our students and teachers returned to school and filled our corridors and campus again, after the pandemic. Moving back to in-person classes has been motivating and sparked a renewed sense of commitment and enthusiasm towards our educational goals. We witnessed excellent SSLC and HSSLC results, with Top-20 state-wide rank holders and highest mark scorers. Ten of our Class 8 students received the distinguished ‘Upper Primary Scholarship’, which will support them for the next four years. I remain ever grateful to all of our teachers and school staff for their tireless efforts to provide quality education.
While there were mentionable wins in 2022, we also experienced a profound loss with the peaceful passing away of our School Founder, late Mr. G. H. Syiemlieh. As an educational institution, we have grown tremendously with his vision, guidance and support. He left behind a lasting legacy and we will always remember him with love and respect.
As we march forward to this new academic year in 2023, our school-wide focus will be towards enhanced teaching practices, effective student management and stronger student support. We will continue to engage with parents, who are crucial to our students’ success.
Thank you for all your well-wishes.
