 Sometimes my mind wanders back in time to joyful memories of attending a great school led by an inspiring head mistress. Lady Sivaswamy Ayyar Girls Higher Secondary School, Mylapore was where I did my class 6 to 12th.  Normal school days, sports days, exhibitions, seva sangam activities, mid-day meals, medical camps, school annual days, competitions, dedicated teachers and to top these memories are those of my headmistress Sathyabama teacher.

A former student recalls the wonderful days spent in the company of one particular teacher who inspired her...

I studied in a private English-medium co-ed School in Dharwad, Karnataka from Kindergarten to the 10th standard. Our School started in a decades-old girls' Kannada-medium high school building. I remember moving to our own school building in the same campus in the 8th Standard.
When I first set foot in the halls of Inventure Academy, it's safe to say I was a nervous-wreck. Starting 9th grade in an all new school in an all new city can be quite a nerve wracking experience. As I first entered the class that would soon come to be one of my favorite places, I saw hoards of excited students gathering around one another, chattering and yelping like infants on caffeine. For a new student, however, the sight could not have been more intimidating. I was in their territory now and I hadn't the faintest clue about what to do.

Mrs. Anne Fernandes taught us English at school. And she taught much else.


Akshay Dixit's approach to teaching leaves a deep impact on his students and this is made clear when they express their enthusiasm to study with him once again. He is, what you'd call, a caring and nurturing teacher.
