The students are being taught moral ethics and human values with guidance from renowned personalities”.
He said that apart from general, moral and spiritual education he wants kids of his institute to do well in physical education and sports activities as well.
“Our students are competing in various sports and Physical education programs at inter school and district levels to ensure high standards of physical education and competitiveness and in this connection we were lucky enough to meet Jeremy Withers Green though Justine Hardy and our students were given cricket coaching from November 26 to December 5,” he said.
