Homage the legendary Kaji Nazrul Islam - by students of Class – IV to Class – VIII
Durga Durgotinashini – by students of Class IX – Class XI
Students from nursery classes presented popular nursery rhymes – they danced to their heart’s content to the Humpty – Dumpties and London bridges, which had the audience break out in laughter. Students from senior performed to some of Tagore’s immortal creations, clearly depicting that they are deep into our roots, and Bengali culture, and cultivate these traits with equal emphasis, along with their studies.
I am a guardian, my elder son was studying in another school, and I admitted my younger son in GBMI. However I was touched by the academic rigor and overall approach to a student’s development. Enough emphasis is laid on studies, where children are encouraged to learn on their own through mix of class work and home work. On the other hand, students are encouraged to participate in games, elocution, recitation, dance, drama and other activities. I was so impressed by the quality of teaching the development of my younger son, that I got my elder son also admitted to this school. The way my elder son has developed in the last two years, he has not developed so much in five years in his previous school, which is one of Kolkata’s best one! Thank You G.B. Memorial!
My daughter who is a student of Class – I has learned a lot by being a student of G.B. Memorial. When I look at her, and her friends, who study in other schools, my daughter’s learning is far superior to that of her friends. She has learnt academics, games and is growing to be a learning child.
I was a student of this school, from Class – I to Class – XII. I thank the school, all teachers and Head Mam for helping me grow in my life. I am now in my final year of engineering, and I need to mention that I could reach till here because of the care taken by the school, and the way they have helped me grow.
