Interaction with Parents - Director's Message

I know sitting in front of screens has become the new normal. So addressing you all through this online mode is surely an experience to remember for all of us. I understand that this could be difficult or unusual for a lot of you. But in this regard I’m reminded of our students who are forced to spend their campus life online. How hard it must be for them to miss out on one of the best experiences of their lives – being a student.  It is not easy on our faculty either, but they, along with our management team have been working very hard to make this sudden transition for them as smooth as possible. At Christ we have been spending more time and effort for the efficient running of daily matters, with our students extending great cooperation as well. So I would like to begin by appreciating all of them, for their dedication and drive that is in line with the spirit of CHRIST and what CHRIST stands for.  Let me also express my heartfelt gratitude to you, the parents, for constantly moti
