Radhamani Iyer - Principal- Arya Gurukul Kalyan East



“Experience is the teacher of all things and every experience makes you grow”.

As the next Principal of Arya Gurukul, Nandivali, Kalyan, East, I would like to write few words to express my experience about the school.  Even though I officially took up the Principal ship of Arya Gurukul, Nandivali, Kalyan (East) recently, I have been a part of this institution for a decade now.

 As a teacher and Headmistress of the same management schools in the past, I experienced that Arya Gurukul students are good not only in academics but also in sports, leadership and organizing activities.

Being a First Chinmaya Vision School of Maharashtra,   I highly appreciate and identify the school’s effort and commitment to provide holistic education to students enriching their personalities and lives.  The scholastics and co-scholastics way of teaching language, mathematics, science, humanity, art and physical development and Masti Ki Pathshala have developed students’ multiple intelligence and aptitude for life-long learning.  The school offers countless opportunities for students to take part in all sorts of co-curricular activities and community services to broaden their exposure and insight.

As a new principal of Arya Gurukul Nandivali, Kalyan East, I would like to sincerely thank the entire staff for their professionalism and commitment in laying a solid foundation to the school. I thank the parents for their support to the school and thank students for their diligent work and engagement in the school.

Being a principal I have a strong belief that, teaching and learning are the core activities of the school. Hence, I want to be in the classrooms more and have beneficial conversations with teachers about curriculum and instructions and interact with each student. The work of the school happens in the classrooms. If I want to influence my students and my school, then that’s where I need to be.

 Harmony can be interpreted as “TEAM WORK”.  As long as we have a dedicated team aiming for the common goals, anything can be achieved.  I always support teachers for their overall development and teaching.  Great teachers are the most important human pillars to the success of our academy.

As I mentioned before, teaching and learning are the core activities of the school, we should make good use of every minute of invaluable instruction time on enhancing students’ learning. I always set students’ benefit to be the first priority.

Together, we shall focus on promoting a high level of learning culture.  Resources will be allocated to furnishing an inviting place and environment for learning.  School policies will be refined to streamline the academic and co-curricular activities.   You may expect changes in the future which I believe to be the sources of momentum and motivation.


I take this opportunity to thank the school Management for giving me the chance to lead Arya Gurukul, Nandivali, Kalyan East.

As we reflect on the many things for which we are thankful, I want to take this opportunity to share just a few of them with you:

We are thankful for our students who come to school every day ready to learn, they give us all a daily reminder of what is important and why we are here.

We are thankful for the teachers, assistants, health aids, bus drivers, office staff, canteen staff, support staff and administrators who really are about student achievement and have the best interest of our students at heart.

During the challenging times, we see dedicated and tireless individuals going above and beyond to make sure that great things happen in our school.  They do make a difference, and the children, in their own individual ways, benefit from those efforts.

Most importantly, we are thankful for the support of the parents in creating an outstanding partnership for our students.  They continue to share their most valuable possession with us and in most cases work hard and advocate to be a partner in their children’s education, safety and well-being.

We are also thankful to our PTA members and parent volunteers who enthusiastically contribute so much to our school.

I welcome all the students back to school.

Warm Regards,
Radhamani Iyer
