I fondly remember my time at Apeejay, and the formative experiences gained here have had the most impact on my life. Though not so much at the time, I now realize the importance of discipline and structure that our then Principal, Mr. McNamara instituted. And I can never be thankful enough for the encouragement and support from Ms Chatterjee towards driving all-round development among her students. It's also the little things that matter - I could tell any number of stories of my teachers and the (by their perception) little things that I learnt which have had a profound impact in my life. Lastly, but most importantly, my friends. It's true what they say about school friends being for life. I'm still in touch with all the folks who I grew up with, and while most of us now have families and worldly responsibilities - we still enjoy getting together every once in a while to reminisce about the great times we had. It's a built-in network that most professionals in North America spend their lifetimes cultivating.

School time has been one of the most carefree yet valuable period of my life. I say this not only because of what I learnt as a student, but also because of the way my personality was shaped there. From learning to share lunchboxes, participating in group activities (dance, drama, quiz, debate etc), making so many friends (and fighting with few), studying and struggling with every difficulty to ultimately handling student council responsibilities as the Head Girl and Interact Club President, I have learnt many life lessons that I am thankful to my teachers for. I was voted as the naughtiest student in class 8 and a major transition happened as I bagged the student of the year award in my senior school! This itself shows how loved and well guided we were throughout our protected school (read shell) life. I do miss not being able to go back to school every year but I hope that the current students are making the most of every opportunity being provided to them!

My time at Apeejay School can be summed up in three distinct spheres:
A. Public Speaking, which helped me conquer my inner demons and triumph over a serious case of Stage Fright I used to have before any Debate, MUN or Morning Assembly Speech. It also helped me voice my opinion in an articulate manner and engage in discussions which helped me better understand the world around me.
B. Administrative Responsibilities, primarily being in-charge of the Students Council and the Interact Club which helped me become more accountable for all the responsibilities entrusted to me and instilled a sense of the Community Spirit in me.
C. Academics, which above all taught me that the key to success lies in persevering and trying until you just get it right. When I look back at the time I first came to Apeejay and failed at Mathematics in Class VII to the time when I recieved a letter from the then HRD Minister Smriti Zubin Irani for my scores in Political Science and Sociology post the Boards, I shall forever be indebted to this institution for instilling in me the art of persevering against all odds and getting me to do what I needed to become who I wanted to be.

Apeejay school has been instrumental in nourishing my primary education which helped me to grow as a disciplined and successful professional in life. The school environment had continuously pushed me to perform better everyday. I am extremely grateful to Mrs. Chatterjee for not only mentoring us to achieve our goals but also standing beside us just like our parents in times of need. I will cherish these golden memories throughout my life. Thanks a ton to all the faculty and  staff of Apeejay school.

Apeejay School gave us so many things - discipline, learning, valuable friends, parent like teachers to name a few.. School Days have been of the best phases of my journey thus far. We realise how important school days are in shaping up our thought process, our perception and our attitude once we leave school. I will never be able to thank my teachers enough, my Principal Mam and all other support staff of the school for the memorable years spent there. I will always be grateful to be associated with this wonderful institution. I will always be a student of Apeejay!!

It is hard to believe but I still remember the first day of my school life when I got lost and started to cry. The only place I knew was the Office of Principal Ma'am since that is where my interview was conducted so I went there and Principal Ma'am took care of me and guided me to LKG. Right from then till now and for years to come, her guidance, teachings, blessings and encouragement not only to excel in life but also to be a good human being have contributed immensely in shaping up who I am as a person and as a professional today. I can proudly say that I have been extremely fortunate and blessed to have got the opportunity to learn and get guided by the best teachers in the most crucial years of my life. I can think of innumerable instances of school life that are really close to my heart and have helped me learn and grow. What sets Apeejay apart from any other education behemoth is that the environment created for young minds here is sublime - the teachers create an ambience which is discerned by the child not as a place of learning but rather as a family of learning. You feel you're in a home away from home. This embellishment of a caring, loving & learning atmosphere is what matters the most and makes all the difference. I conduct Seminars and Workshops all across the globe to train people in the field of Finance and teach them the nitty-gritties of how to grow their Investments strategically. Within a short span of hardly 18 months, Almighty has been graceful & I have conducted Training seminars in 15 cities globally with over 2,000 people. A large chunk of these people are now my regular clients, who periodically ask for advice.

Memories come gushing down like an avalanche when I think of my school days. From my frightened self running back to my father on the first day in class 1 to the last day in class 12 when friends hugged each other not knowing when we will meet again; not knowing when we shall again see our favorite teachers again; it is sheer nostalgia. Outstanding teachers; emphasis on discipline; teachers caring for each and every student in the class and the confidence that our school instilled in us became the pillars of success for all of us in our lives.

Our ‘Principal Mam’ was our mentor and our guide. She was and still is the soul of Apeejay School. I remember her holding my hand and walking all the way up to the Art room to appreciate my work and praising me in front of the entire assembly for my first oil painting. Today when I think of those years; I understand one thing ….. that my Principal Mam and all the other teachers of my school were the real artists …. like the greatest of sculptors; they constantly chipped away the irregularities to create the finest statues out of ordinary stone ….. they made us what we are today.”
