This is to convey our deep appreciation and gratitude to Chaitanya School for the holistic education imparted to our daughter Riddhi Berry.
Riddhi joined the school in April 2017 in Class VII, when we arrived on posting to Gandhinagar from Kolkatta. The atmosphere provided by the school was very cordial and conducive for overall development of the Child. We found a very positive change in our daughter and she imbibed good skills besides the studies.
Having our daughter study in almost 6 schools till now, we would rate Chaitanya as one of the very superior ones.
We wish the School grows from strength to strength in times to come. We would also like to convey our gratitude and good wishes to respected Principal, Teachers and the Staff for supporting our daughter during her two years at Chaitanya.
FROM A CHAITANYA MOTHER
Motherhood is one of the greatest gifts of God and watching your baby grow brings innumerable joys at each and every stage. A baby’s first walk and his first word are milestones in life’s journey both for parents and their children and an equally momentous event is a child’s first day in school. Along with the frets and worries, it undoubtedly carries its moments of ecstasy. It is with such delight that I recall today, my son Vedang’s first steps at Chaitanya. Chaitanya was not his first school as such and the shift from his previous place did bring its pangs of confusion and doubts. My child was well ensconced in a school with loving and caring teachers and I kept questioning the necessity for the shift. Today however, when I look back, I can proclaim with confidence that I have no regrets at all.
Chaitanya gave my child confidence to face challenges, the will to fight without worrying about defeat and the freedom to question and interrogate. If he lost something, it was his stage fright. This school has shown him the importance of team spirit and how to work together with your class mates in order to succeed. By working closely with economically under- privileged children, my son learnt to value what he has and at the same time to respect the struggles and challenges of life that others face. He has learnt the value of a secular society where each religion is not only respected but celebrated with gusto. In no other institution, would he have learnt to sing Christmas carols the way he did at Chaitanya and how can I forget his performance of the song ‘Tell Me Why’ before Pandit Hariprasad Chaurasiya. I shall remain ever indebted to the school staff who gave my child not just a platform to perform but also trained him to sing. It was in this school that my child learnt the significance of sharing when he was encouraged to donate a small portion of his prize money to the needy.
Chaitanya has been like family. In moments of crisis I have called up the school without the slightest hesitation, in matters as grave as my son’s health and as trivial as he forgetting what to wear- the uniform or free dress. Many a time I have pestered the bus-in- charge teachers regarding bus timings or to enquire about delays. I shall remain ever grateful to the teachers for their patience and the way they have not only nurtured my son but the emotional confidence they have given him. Vedang has blossomed into an enthusiastic debater and orator thanks to his teachers. He has argued on such diverse subjects as FDI and the future of the nation, without being afraid of being snubbed by his teachers and peer group.
Circumstances have compelled me to shift to another city and another school but my baby will remain a “Chaitanyan forever”. I am forced to be selfish even today when I seek blessings from his teachers that he may keep the Chaitanya flag flying high. May I take this opportunity to thank every member of the Chaitanya family for his /her contribution in making Vedang a better human. Thanks always.

The academic year is nearing its end. Harishree, my grand-daughter, had been throughout a pupil in the Senior K. G. Class of the school. So it is the time for me to pen a few words of our experience of the school.
Chaitanya is the school as we would have it. Its management is sensitive to the feelings of the children’s guardians and ever ready to set right their slightest disquiets in regard to the peculiar needs of their children. The education is indeed qualitatively good and based on the moral and cultural values.
The school endeavours to realize all-round development of the child and to provide necessary exposure to him/her. It needs and has for the purpose properly qualified teachers. The teachers who taught our child are very competent, affectionate and cheerful teachers. They know how to motivate the child for study and other activities. They inspired confidence in our child, brought her out from her shell of shyness and made her communicative. Indeed they did what was most essential, and we the family, are grateful to them for it and for other things they taught. Members of non-teaching staff, too, are polite and helpful.
I wish the school ever brighter performance. We look forward to attaining ever greater satisfaction from it in the years to come.

We can never thank you, the Principal and the Teachers at Chaitanya School enough for the wonderful time that our children Raeanne, Chris & Steve had at Chaitanya.
Raeanne, our daughter is a child with special needs, the care and one-to-one attention that she got in the class from her teachers during the last 2 years is something that we really appreciate.We cannot forget to mention how fond she was of the members of the support staff too, the ‘didis’ as the children call them.
It was really heartening to see Raeanne take part in the annual day and come up on the stage with all the children of the school and show up in confidence both in her role as “Devi” during Sr. K.G. and in the “Dandi March” in her 1st std. We can understand the pain and tireless efforts that her teachers would have put behind the scenes to help her show up so beautifully on the annual day.
We can scarcely believe that our sons Chris & Steve’s schooling at Chaitanya has come to an end. It truly seems like just yesterday that we were buying their first uniform and getting them ready for their first day of school. Both Steve and Chris who are in Jr.K.G have had a wonderful time learning to write and count and making friends under the care of Ms Suman.
Unlike most children of their age, Chris & Steve were never reluctant to get up in the morning to go to school, thanks to the wonderful environment at the school.
Having sent our three children to Chaitanya, we truly believe that the school lives up to its motto of “Childhood for the Child ”
Mrs. Koshy, your hands on involvement and leadership has definitely set a new paradigm in education. We would like to wish you and the entire Chaitanya family the very best in creating able, honest and confident Indians.
Thank you once again for everything that you have done for our children, we will remain ever obliged.
