From the Science stream, Aishwarya N. topped the batch, with 91 percent marks. Her mother works in a garment factory and is the sole bread-earner for the family as her father has been sick for many years and is unable to work. Hailing from a humble background, Aishwarya had put in her heart and soul in studies despite of all the challenges back at her home. She intends to pursue medicine and has already begun preparations for NEET.
“My family and I are extremely thankful to Christel House, for giving me the opportunity to study and pursue my dreams. The teachers at Christel House toiled tirelessly to make sure that we were well prepared for this examination. I am extremely happy with my results, it is a dream come true and the most remarkable moment of my life,” says Aishwarya. N.
While an urban child has different coping mechanisms to tackle exam related stress and stay focused, it has been twice as hard for children from the lesser privileged communities to do so. With an ailing father and a bread-winner mother, Aishwarya relied on her teachers to provide the extra counsel both academically as well as emotionally to help her sail through the exam stress while Damini focused on discipline and time management to juggle house hold responsibilities alongside studies.
Enrolling students from urban-impoverished homes, from underdeveloped slum areas in a 20 km radius, Christel House ensures these students have access to world-class education, along with balanced nutrition and a robust healthcare programme. The objective is to give these children, the same opportunities, as available to their better-off counterparts. With this year’s stellar academic results and success story, Christel House is proud to be able to drastically impact the futures of such students by bringing them into the mainstream.
The year long preparation for the PU board exams saw the school and its teachers dedicate additional time and energies to tuition, guide and revise ensuring zero dropouts before exams. Counselling to parents on need for emotionally stable homes is an added challenge that Christel House took on to ensure the children appearing for their PU boards can dedicate undivided attention to their studies.
The school worked on continued efforts to keep the students motivated so they can break out of their inhibiting backgrounds; to not just dream big, but also work tirelessly towards achieving said goals. The results of Christel House’s performance in the PU board exams set the tone for the change in society, one step at a time.
“Our PUC batch of students has excelled superbly this year. We have been able to achieve, 100 percent pass percentage, in comparison to a statewide pass percentage of 61.7 percent. This result is a testament to the hard work and dedication of the teachers and staff at Christel House. 97 percent of our students have scored distinction or first division. We are proud of our students, and we think each one of them is a success story,” said J Mathew, CEO, Christel House India.Posted in Corporate, News
