INTRODUCTION
 

A tiny sapling planted in April 2004, in the educational blossom of Hero Group, has now started spreading its fragrance. The journey that began in the year 2004 with merely 660 students and about 30 teachers has now spread its wings to reach the zenith of glory with myriad possibilities for the students gathering approximately 4000 students and about 154 teachers. The Premises is spread over 2.45 acres of pollution free land. The school aims at realizing the individuality and uniqueness of every student. Students enjoy eco-friendly environment, well-furnished class room with all types of modern teaching aids. There are lush green lawns all over the campus and suitable playgrounds for all sports. Nurturing and grooming of young minds of children requires the application of the best minds and brains.

 

The school lays emphasis on all-round and homogenous development of students through 3H's (Hand, Heart and Head), 3R's (Reading, Rhetoric and Writing), and 5C's (Contact, Communication, Compete, Culture and Character). BCM epitomizes vibrancy and freshness, dovetailing much of ethos of developing India into its educational program. Besides spacious classrooms and playgrounds we have fully developed facilities for each department.

 

  THE PRINCIPAL EPISTLES

The deadly infectious Covid 19 has triggered a chaotic social atmosphere and brought a paradigm shift to how we learn at schools.  It has transformed the centuries old chalk-talk teaching model to one driven by technology.
Currently, the digital platform is enabling students and teachers to access a plethora of learning opportunities. Classroom learning has been seamlessly integrated with e-learning modes to build a unified learning system. We at BCM have updated equipments and are capable of teaching our students with both offline and online mode. Our faculty is adept and also ready to face all kind of challenges. We are capable of developing skills that can drive their employability, productivity, health and well-being in decades to come and ensure overall progress of our nation as well.

Year after year, the school sprints to the next pedestal leaving an indelible mark behind. This year too there have been tremendous achievements. Our students excelled in AISC challenge of the week, conducted by AI Student Community in collaboration with CBSE & INTEL. They have made us proud with their commendable achievements at District, State & National Level Sports Competitions. We hold tight to the opinion that success is authored by consistent, directed, self-motivated and intelligent effort.  Thus with sincerity, dedication, perseverance and honesty we tread ahead having the conviction that if 'We do the best, He will do the rest.' The lockdown had provided us with ample of time for the test and trials of novel pedagogies which we are implementing in our curriculum.

The need isn’t for new horizons but new spectacles to see the existing horizons. Life is beautiful,  all we need to do is see it with fresh eyes.
