Our Mail to Organizers

Dear Friends from ASSOCAM,
Greetings from Tapovan School.
It is indeed exciting. I am jubiliated to Thank the organisers for your concern and commitment to identify and applause Innovation in Education.when you said that  Over 1000 schools across Karnataka  contested for this coveted award, we being in still infant stage, it was to our surprise that Tapovan school got the Jury award for ” Innovation in Teaching and learning Practices”.
I Thank the Almighty, my family and my Team Tapovan for standing by me through thick and thin. Finally one thing is clear. Hard work pays. There is no short cut to success.Do your best and leave the rest for others to analize. Awards/ recognitions will multiply expectations and aspirations. Be ready to shoulder the responsibility. Iam totally humbled.
I also extend my dutiful thanks to organisers and Jury members for patiently going through all the entries and filtering several entries and bringing  top 15 entries as finalists under each categary and also recognizing/ appreciating each one with a wonderful certificate that is a treasure to all schools.
Infact there are several paid/ bought awards proposed by famous media giants. I humbly refused such proposals before saying, “if we had such fancy money rather I spend on my school for the benefit of students than buying an award”.
I hold the award given by you ,close to my chest since you did not even had an ‘entry fee’ for it.
Kudos to your concept and commitment.
I have no better word to say other than humble ‘Thank you’ 💐to ASSOCHAM the main organisers and other sponsors who supported the cause.
Thanks and regards,
Dr. J A Vani Sharma
Founder/ Principal.

Dear Principal,

What a splendid awards ceremony we had on Saturday, the 16th Feb 2019… !

It was a truly proud moment to see all the deserving winners and finalists such as your school, receiving the recognition. The speeches and messages from the Jury members also conveyed their joy and satisfaction in seeing the great work being done by educators such as yourself. 

All of this would not have been possible without your active participation and cooperation in this process. For that, you have our most sincere thanks!

Please find attached the photos of your school receiving the award, along with other event photos.

The bulk printing of the publication of this study is underway. Your school is mentioned in this publication, along with statistics from the study. 

We would love to come to your school, to meet you and present a copy of this publication to you, along with the report of the exact feedback and statistics your school has received from the parents. We hope this report becomes a useful tool to help make significant innovations.

We would like to drop in to your school during the last week of February’19 (25th Feb to 2nd Mar, 2019).  Do let me know which date/time would be suitable for you.

Dear Dr. J A Vani Sharma,
Thank you for your kind words. It has been our pleasure to do justice to this study and this initiative. In fact, the Jury member for your category – Dr. Ali Khwaja, took an entire day from his precious time to evaluate the finalists in this category of ‘Teaching & Learning Practices’, and he went through all the documents meticulously and carefully, and scored all finalists on a 25 point rating scale, selecting your school as the winner. Your school has been fully deserving and therefore you received the award. You are right indeed that thoughtful, well intentioned, hard work pays. 
We will be sharing the photos from the event tomorrow. Will send you an email with the same attached.
Finally, it is important that we give due credit to our supporters for this edition of the study, because only with their support are we able to do this free of cost, and maintain the transparency and integrity of this study. In that regard, do kindly note, that ASSOCHAM was the leading sponsor for the 2017 edition of this study, and not of this years edition. 
The current 2019 edition is supported by IACC (Indo-American Chamber of Commerce, where I am the Vice Chairman of the Education Commitee), and PARENTOF (a data science company where I play the role of Director). It is through the support of these 2 entities that we were able to do this study and the awards. Credit to the 2019 edition is truly goes to them.
Once again, congratulations on your fantastic win! We look forward to seeing how Tapovan School continues to grow and innovate in its efforts and practices.
Wishing you the best!
