Speaking to Newskarnataka Snehith Vincent, Managing Director of Ace Priyadarshini School said, “We believe in providing the kids with activities like music, dance, theatre and art classes so that they identify their passion. Parents play a vital role hence, we also have regular parent training programs which helps them understand the child better. The school constantly works for the betterment of the society and the children, as they are the future. The slogan of the school is ‘Educate Inspire Excel’. Basically, we have a different plan for every student and some of the students are too good in sports, theatre, dance and music while some are good in technology related aspects. As I am an engineer, I tought them about robotics and CAD. We started with simple things and as there was no pressure, the students showed more interest in robotics and CAD and enjoyed it a lot."
