Remember the day when Sergey (from Ukraine) and Stefania (from the heel of Italy’s boot on the coast of the Adriatic Sea) came to visit us and spend some time with students musically, on the acoustic guitar? It was yet another precious encounter with world-travelers who came to our school via Art Ichol.
I was fortunate to not only attend a private school in the United States but also one where students felt loved and cared for in addition to getting a better education. It’s easy to find a school that either gives a good education or loves its’ students. I have been fortunate to spend several days at Stuti Niwas during multiple trips to India. I spent time with the children inside the clasrooms, observing the teachers and visiting children and their parents outside of the school. Stuti Niwas is a very rare school that excels in BOTH education and love. If I had a child anywhere near Nagod, they would only be attending Stuti Niwas.
Grant came to us a few several weeks during which he spent great time with students doing career counseling, helping with music education, and especially creating an impactful formal debate team experience. He was a champion debate team participant back in the US during his school and college days. We are very grateful for his time with us.
Having been to SN school thrice I can say that it never grows old. In fact, it is invigorating! For me it is always a joy to see the kids loving to learn which is demonstrated by their attentiveness, attitudes, and behaviors. A real joy!!!
I hope that I can someday visit again.
Margaret Irwin-West is a world-renowned artist from Ireland who had come to Art Ichol and spent precious time with our students at our school as well as at Art Ichol where she met with some of our school’s art students. She wishes to express her gratitude the school for giving her such quality time of interaction. Such a magical time. Remarkably, Margaret was born in our state of Madhya Pradesh 90 years prior to this visit; it was her first return back to the heart of India where she was born. What a remarkable woman.
I’ve enjoyed visiting the school several times over the last 10 years. The students I’ve met are always warm-hearted, welcoming, and inquisitive. I’ve sat in on classes and also found the students to be attentive and respectful, as well as eager to join in a discussion or offer an answer to a question. The Principal is excellent. I highly recommend this school. It is a special place.
We spent a week with the team at Satya Niketan in 2018 and are still talking about it years later. It was incredible to see the facilities they have developed, the passion the team have for giving the local children the best possible education, and opportunities to develop in sports and the arts. We loved seeing how joyful the students were and hearing the incredible success stories of graduates going on to bigger things. A truly wonderful haven of hope in India.
