Subject: Note from grateful parents
To: Dr. (Mrs.) Amita Chauhan, Chairperson, Amity International Schools
My wife and I are writing to convey our deep gratitude to Amity, from where our two daughters namely Aparna and Kanika graduated upon completing Class XII in 2012 and 2015 respectively.
Now Mainak, our youngest child is also completing his Class XII from AIS Mayur Vihar this month, ending our over-15 years association as parents with your esteemed institution.
I attended the Citation Ceremony held in school on Basant Panchami day (February 1, 2017) and witnessed - perhaps for the last time - the amazing dedication and energy of teachers and the family atmosphere which have nurtured our children into intelligent, responsible citizens with values rooted in Indian culture.
It was an emotional moment for us and when we reflected back, we realized we must convey to you how indebted we feel for role of Amity without which our children could not have succeeded the way they have. We will briefly mention here our children's progress, as we know it gives you pleasure when your school's children do well.
Aparna, after completing her Class XII from Amity International School, NOIDA in 2012, joined B.Tech (Chemical Engineering) in reputed Panjab University, Chandigarh based on her AIEEE/JEE Main All India Rank 22,000. She graduated from P.U. in June 2016 in 1st division and with strong extracurricular performance. Before graduation, she was selected through campus placement by Saint Gobain, world leader in glass, whom she joined in July 2016 as Management Trainee and now in January 2017, the company has posted her as Marketing Executive with their India Head Office. We may mention that the St. Gobain selection process was very rigorous comprising of written test, Group Discussion, multiple personal interviews and psychometric tests, where only about 1-2 out of 100 top graduates succeeded. Here, we believe that the communication, leadership and other soft skills and values acquired in Amity gave her a definite edge.
Our younger daughter Kanika has joined B.Tech (Civil Engineering) in the prestigious Delhi Technological University in 2015, after completing class XII in the same year from AIS, Mayur Vihar. By God's grace, she is also doing well and is an active participant in Music and Astronomy societies of the university. Besides the academic and soft skills strengths acquired in Amity, the presence of Amity alumni in the college system and industry is also helping her, as we can make out from the stories she narrates to us.
We are keeping fingers crossed for the youngest Mainak; and are hopeful of his good performance in IIT JEE examination, based on his performance in practice tests.
I may mention here that all three of our children availed Syncro program in XI-XII, which really helped in balancing Board and competitive exams preparation, while giving them access to the best faculty for both formats, with unmatched personal care and encouragement of Amity.
Madam, through you we wish to convey our thanks and appreciation to all the teachers and others at Amity for their immense contribution in the growth of our children. Please continue the excellent work with same passion to make ours a great society.
With best regards,
