‘High school is what kind of grows you into the person you are. I have great memories, good & bad, some learning experiences and some that I’ll take with me the rest of my life.”
Reputations of schools are built by the achievements of its students, both past and present. It’s sometimes difficult to define ‘notable’ as in the eyes of the educator, each child who has left the portals of this great institution, is special.
Our old students are a truly outstanding group of young (they will always be children for us!) men & women. There are generals, outstanding sportsmen, CEO’s, corporate big wigs and many more.
An alumni who deserves special mention is NavinGulia . Just before the Passing Out Parade of the IMA he met with an accident while undertaking the Obstacle Course. He had serious injuries and after a long period of hospitalization was declared hundred percent disabled. However he has never given up the zest to fight his disability and continues to live life better than the fittest. His favourite quote is ' The only thing that can beat the power of the mind is the courage of the heart and if you have both, nothing can beat you '. In Sept 04, he undertook a mission to drive to MarsimikLa , the highest motorable Pass in the world at 18,632 feet . The Pass is 332 feet higher than the base camp of Mt. Everest. He was flagged off from the School on 9 Sept 04. Despite all odds, Navin successfully completed his mission covering a distance of 1105 kms, and has now entered the Limca Book of Records for this achievement.
The school is proud of a large number of alumni like Arjuna Awardee BhanuSachdeva (swimmer), SimranShergill (polo player) , Ranna Gill (fashion designer) ,RajanKukreja (WW Head of People Business Operations, Apple) , Nishit Saran ( writer and film director ) , AbhaDavesar (author of three books ), Ira Singhal ( IAS Topper, 2015), ChetanBhagat ( author ) , SiddharthMridul ( Judge, Delhi High Court) Sunil Chhetri ( Captain, Indian National Football Team), ManishaKoirala (actor) , NehaDhupia(model, actor & anchor), ManpreetBrar (1st Runner up, Miss Universe, 1995) , SonaliChander&Richa Pant (TV anchors) , Rahul Kanwal (TV journalist) , Mini Menon (journalist & writer) and Mitali Mukherjee (business journalist), amongst others, who have brought glory to the institution. Mrs Divya Sharma blazed the trail for girl's entry into the Defence Forces by joining the Army as the First Lady Officer in the Corps of Signals in 1993.
An institution's alumni are the reflection of its past, representation of its present and a link to its future.
