“To accomplish great things, we must not only act, but also dream; not only plan, but also believe.”
- Anatole France.

1.      Sainik School Ambikapur is on a fascinating path of growth and development. As you are aware, it has already established itself as the best public school in the state of Chhattisgarh. The School’spermanent campus on 84 acres of pristine land is fast integratingstate of the art training facilities with enviable results.
2.      Our commitment at Sainik School Ambikapur is to provide a challenging environment that will enable our cadets to join the National Defence Academy, Khadakwasla to ultimately emerge as the sentinels of the nation’s security and also empower them to become innovative thinkers, creative problem solvers and inspired learners prepared to thrive in the twenty-first century.
3.      In this Cradle for Future Officers of the Army, Navy and the Air Force, Quality Education and Empowerment through Personality Development remains the fundamental objective. I have taken over the reins of Sainik School Ambikapur at a stage when the school, having made a stable inception, the challenge is not only to gain momentum but also put in place a system where the momentum gets sustained in a clockwork mechanism. The School has made a bold mark in the recent years; our endeavour will be to prioritise our resources in a way so that the standards do not wane.
4.      Education and cadets’ welfare is our primary commitment; our focus therefore will always remain on the cadets as the Centre of Gravity. My focus in the next few months would be to accelerate the creation of a holistic and stress free environment conducive to learning, the completion of the remaining infrastructure development, professional augmentation of our faculty and welfare of our support staff. On the cadets’ front we will aim to instil discipline of the highest order, moral values, ethical conduct and sense of honour and dignity in our cadets.
5.      Teachers are the pillars of the school; I believe that effective teachers:
(a)     Create opportunities of classroom learning to real life situations;
(b)     Implement strategies that promote learning in students;
(c)     Design instruction to integrate a variety of innovative technological tools and resources to enhance learning;
(d)     Demonstrate ongoing professional growth in order to increase the quality of instruction;
(e)     Interpret student performance data, and design assessments that promote modernistic skills.
6.      Similarly, I believe that successful students:
(a)     Communicate in a meaningful way for a variety of purposes and audiences;
(b)     Employ critical and creative thinking skills to solve problems; and
(c)     Pose questions, examine possibilities, and apply skills to find solutions to authentic issues.
(d)     Make positive choices related to physical and mental wellness; and
(e)     Contribute constructively to the society and in nation-building.
7.      I wish every AMBIKAN and those associated with the school a wonderful year ahead. I am sure, through the combined efforts of the Officers, Staff and the Cadets and the active support of the Parents and the other stakeholders we can continue our march towards success and in the times to come attain loftier levels of glory.
