She joined us in 2005 in the junior wing and taught students in class 1. Warm, soft spoken and gentle Priyanka, had undying resolve and determination too. Her long and hard fought battle with cancer saw her win the odds and she continued to teach, engage and shoulder all her responsibilities at school with aplomb, cheer and utmost dedication. She embodied the definition of a brave heart.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to her family. Priyanka with her caring ways, grit and determination will live in our hearts forever.
