The School Management & Staff of Pathways World School, Aravali welcome you to the beginning of another eventful Academic Year 2020 – 2021.
This year has been a unique & challenging one in many ways…COVID-19 pandemic being the primary reason. The summer break has been an unusual one for everyone. No vacations. No travelling. And yet families have spent quality time together. Hope you managed to spend quality time with your children…even if it was done differently this time…confined at home.
We have had heart-warming IBDP results in the Academic Year gone by, with Urjashi Laha as the Valedictorian achieving a brilliant score of 44 points with 3 Bonus Points & a total of 24 Students scoring 36 points & above despite being the first ever cohort of having their final Exams cancelled. The results are the outcome of a 3-way handshake where the hard work of Students is supported by the Teachers & strongly backed by the Parents. We owe a big ‘Thank You’ to our Parent Community for instilling that faith in us & supporting us in all our endeavors for the betterment of our Students.
The untiring support of our Team of Staff & Students resulted in successful virtual Sessions of Inductions, Orientations, Graduation Ceremonies, Subject Choices & many other Student Led Events, including the ‘Webinar on Adapting Uncertainty with Resilience & Hope’ & ‘Yūgen: A Global Collaborative Platform for the Youth to Come up with Viable Solutions for these Trying Times’.
Exposure & growth has happened for Staff during these challenging times through their participations in online Courses & attending Webinars to widen horizons.
The School Administration has ensured that the safety & health of its Staff is taken care of. Before the Staff enter the Campus, their hands & belongings are sanitized by a Sanitizer Spray. They are made to sanitize their footwear by dipping them in sanitized tubs. Keeping the Face Mask on is a mandate. Body temperature is checked ensuring that the Staff is enjoying good health.
I hope the children are geared up to a super start to the new Academic Year 2020 – 2021. Little did we anticipate that the pandemic will stretch itself so far that we will have to begin this new year also virtually. I am delighted to have the Students back on Monday, 20th July 2020, though virtually, & hope to have another successful rigorous Year! Academic Staff too will be taking Classes from the comfort of their homes.
You will hear from your child’s Principal’s Office on the Schedule of the upcoming Induction & Orientation. Due to the restrictions imposed because of the lock down, delivery of Textbooks is delayed. In order to save you a trip or keep the dispatch of packets to a single one, a Schedule to have the Textbooks & Stationery issued at the same time will also be shared by the respective Principal’s Office shortly.
We, the Students, Parents & the School have been & will continue to work towards making Pathways a Brand to reckon with, not only in India, but globally too. The Pathways Community will continue to encourage its Students to dream high & achieve their goals in every field. We are extremely proud of the successes over the years and look forward to your continued support in bringing the best in our Students.
