THANK YOU, HIGH RANGE SCHOOL!!!
When I walked into the environs of the High Range School with my 6 year old daughter on May 18th 1992, little did I realize what the school and the place would do to me as a professional and as a person in the years to come! As I write this note, nostalgic memories flood my being… the illustrious leaders under whom I worked, my former colleagues, the special days and assemblies, the Annual Days and the Sports Days, my dear students & the immense sense of satisfaction in classroom transactions, the professional growth I have had which enabled me to climb up ladders of success … the list is endless. Being the editor of the newsletter for over 9 years, which was initially cyclostyled & then gradually computer printed, was immensely gratifying. I am indeed proud to have been the founder member of the Old Students’ Association, Camaraderie. My students at the HRS have been of a rare breed too – they have kept in touch over the decades which make me feel special as an educator.
I still cherish fond reminiscences swathed in oodles of gratitude, for HRS has moulded my daughter, Aathira, into what she is today. The verdant landscape and beauty of nature that pervades the entire region, the wholesome interactions at school, the choicest activities especially being part of the WWF and Nature Club - all have had an indelible effect, making her a wildlife biologist!
May HRS always be the portal of learning that continues to have its meaningfully nurturing and delightfully positive impact on all those who enters its doors! Cheers to a very fine school, one that has empowered its students to embark on a life driven by meaning and joy!! Happy 25th birthday!!!
