Vision of the school
Our founder, Late Smt. Vedwati Dixit was a freedom fighter. Having taught children at Gurukul Kangdi, Dehradun, at Balwaadi in Bangalore‘s Vishwaneedam Dairy farms, she was keenly interested in taking education to the masses. With this vision of affordable quality education she started a small school in Indira Nagar in her residence itself. The sapling bore fruit and soon new premises had to be arranged to handle the increased strength of students. Thus came up the existing structure at Manas Vihar. Mrs Dixit passed away in 2002. The vacuum created by her absence was ably filled by our present Director Smt. Usha Shanker. Winner of HT Woman Award, FICCI FLO Award, Amar Ujala “Guru Pranam” Award, PHD Chamber’s Award for excellence in Education, she took the school to greater heights. It has always been her heartfelt desire to educate and train the underprivileged segments of society and the school has been working in this sphere for the past two decades.
Ms. Ujjwala Shanker has been the Manager of the school since 2012. An alumnus of Loreto Convent, Carmel Convent, Army Public School, Avadh Girls’ Degree College, Lucknow University and Unity Law College. She has been actively involved in the decisions of administration of the school.
She is working towards digitalisation of Education.
From the next session she plans to introduce App Based education along with normal pedagogy.
She was awarded for her work in the field of Education by the Loreto Alumnae Association in 2107. She was awarded the Amar Ujala “Guru Pranam Samman” in 2019.
She is also on the Committees of Loreto Alumnae Association of which she was the Treasurer. She is the present Treasurer of Avadh Girls’ Degree College Alumnae Association.She helped to set up a Skill Development Wing at Jagriti, Loreto Convent , Lucknow. She is a member of Ficci Flo and Innerwheel. She is also State Secretary WEE of CIMSME.
Her vision is to take the legacy of Mrs. Vedwati Dixit and Mrs. Usha Shanker forward and take the school to great heights where children are nurtured and mentored so that they achieve their fullest potential.
