Maya Angelo rightly said, “A child may forget what you said, “A child may forget what you did, but a child will never forget how you made him feel. “ At SDA School, we provide an environment of love and care, and our wonderful teachers give emotional support to our students. In view of this, our students feel school is their second home. We believe that if the children are happy in the school, they will grow emotionally strong and excel in their life’s pursuits. Therefore, we function on the premise that a well conducted school is a happy home, a sacred shrine, a social center, and a state in miniature, all beautifully blended into a synthetic structure.
