”What makes a child gifted and talented may not always be good grades in school, but a different way of looking at the world and learning.”

I totally agree with the statement. At HFS the same is followed. Our school, by giving us so many opportunities, helps us to discover our talents, and then develop them.

10 years ago, my parents admitted me in this school, expecting me to come out with a bundle of certificates, learn good manners, make life-long friends and be a good citizen. . Because of the wonderful teachers I have got good manners. We have also made life-long friends here. Learning in the true sense only occurs when there is an active involvement of the child in the various activities conducted by the school. Here at HFS, Thane the children are given a lot of opportunities to bring out their inner talent. You can take my example. A few years back, I thought I wasn’t a good orator but the impromptu speech and the English elocutions proved me wrong. These events helped me to overcome my stage fright and be confident in speaking. Here in HFS, many other aspects are looked into. I never knew I was a good actor before taking part in Dramatics apart from studies these play a key role in our life

To learn the ways of life, we have to step out of the school. Our school also takes us for national and international trips every year where we explore, have fun and build bonds. Our teachers who accompany us on these trips have great fun with us and the memories of these trips remain etched in our minds forever.

In this one year which I have left, am going to do everything that I can to make my school proud. I can't imagine a life without HFS. Our beloved principal, the teachers, all have been an integral part of my life and a lot of credit should go to them for making me who I am today. I do not remember my first day of school and if I was happy or sad but I do know one thing that when I leave this school, I will leave with such wonderful memories that I will cherish forever.
