Primary Branch From the Head’s desk

Another eventful and fulfilling academic term has come to an end. The exposures that were extended to our students during the Ist term through well planned academic and extracurricular activities will go a long way in bringing a positive difference in their lives and personalities; making them responsible and useful members of the society.

At BSS, we believe that with the world and the needs of the community changing at an ever increasing pace, we endeavour to be open to change, seek to adapt, innovate and keep in step with the goals that the society expects from us. As parental role is pivotal in better upbringing of children, we value your partnership for the social, emotional and intellectual development of children.

To ignite the passion of reading in your children give them exposure of books of appropriate level. Kindly ensure they take interest in completing their homework. I am confident that with our combined efforts we will prepare our children for the challenges of a new world.
