“Real education fetches you more than a job. It teaches you to live. It cannot be measured in any tangible way”.
It is an enduring tradition to take life to pause, then look around the fruitful year gone by, achieving both the expected and unexpected, while setting various milestones and synergizing ourselves to move ahead to face the challenges in the coming year, with a positive attitude. We thank the Almighty God for all the blessings bestowed upon us year after year.
The system of education in Marygiri Public School is a blend of theory and practice in the right proportion to achieve. While the focus was on the holistic development of every student, real education took the center stage as in every year.
The academic year 2015 – 16 ended on a happy note witnessing excellent performance of the students in the CBSE Board Exam (X and XII). We had 64 of our students securing A1 in 10th and 3 full A1 in +2.
Marygiri has undertaken new and improved initiatives in our quest for excellence. Senior Secondary students are provided with entrance exam coaching facilities (IIT & NEET Special batch) to make them competitive to face the challenges after their school education. To create interest in Science and Maths and to prepare students for competitive exams, IIT Foundation Course is offered for students of classes VI to X.

To develop the varied interests and talents of the students, the school provides ample opportunity through co-scholastic activities. Abacus, Rifle Shooting and Archery were added calculating the interest of the students. In order to provide more exposure to our students along with National Science Talent Search Examination (NSTSE), they participated in the Silver Zone Scholarship Examination at the International level.
Students were introduced to the parliamentary system of election for electing the students’ representatives. As per this system, each class consists of four ministers namely Chief Minister, Home Minister, Health Minister and HRD Minister along with two secretaries to maintain the decorum of the school. These representatives were designated with badges. Students’ Police is very active and vibrant. The decorum of the school campus is maintained through them very effectively.
‘Bad handwriting is the sign of imperfect education’. We focus on improving the handwriting of our students too. They are provided with Calligraphy and books on reasoning to improve their reasoning skills. The school has a round-the –clock counseling Cell ever ready to assist our students as and when they are in need.

Family is the first school in any child’s life and his/her parents are his/her role models. We can strive hard together to make a difference in this pursuit of excellence. We appreciate our parent fraternity, the PTA for supporting the school in every aspects. A big salute to the relentless efforts of teachers and non-teaching staff for giving their best in bringing out the best in each child. We exhort the students to be always modest, humble and disciplined while being ready to expand the horizon of their knowledge and skills by dreaming big and working hard.
