Welcome the new School Heads of Balsam!April 30th, 2020
Hearty welcome to the newly inducted Principal, Mrs.Sumaiya and in-house member promoted as Vice-Principal, Mrs.Hemakumari.
Mrs. Sumaiya, a highly skilled and overtly student-focussed educational leader possessing a strong commitment to the development of students, staff and providing a stimulating, safe and motivating learning environment. She holds a Masters in Psychology and Business Administration and has a proven track record in collaborating with the school community, enhancing learners’ attainment and establishing strong and lasting relationships with all stakeholders.
What she considers as a great experience is the case study on Alternate Pathway of Learning and Assessing Life Skills – an inimitable model ‘Fiesta of Life’ which she submitted to the CBSE Board in August, 2014.
She is a firm believer in coexistence and instils the spirit of peace and harmony in her students and helps transform as responsible global citizens. She respects people equitably; supports equal and fair treatment and opportunity for all; fosters a climate of inclusion, where diverse thoughts are freely shared and integrated.
She has modelled shared leadership and decision-making strategies and developed collaborative efforts between the school and community. She has developed and maintained an atmosphere of openness, confidentiality, and trust between and among all stakeholders: students, parents, and teachers.
Mrs. Hemakumari has over a decade’s experience in the field of school education. With great passion to teach, she began her career as a facilitator in Balsam Academy. Since then she has held diverse roles as Instructional leader, Head of Exam Committee, Coordinator for various competitive exams and Vice Principal. She has been a dedicated, resourceful and goal-driven professional educator with a solid commitment to the social and academic growth and development of every child. She has evolved as an accommodating and versatile individual with the talent to develop inspiring hands-on lessons that will capture a child’s imagination and breed success. She is highly skilled in adapting teaching to students’ diverse learning styles. She has topped the National Teaching Aids contest for Mathematics under Middle school category conducted by CBSE in 2019.
She has established a great relationship with students and team members and we look forward to greater moments as we thrive for Believe 2023.
Farewell and thank you!April 30th, 2020
Dear Ms.Starlet and Mr.Damodiran,
As a flowing river never stagnates, futility never arises when we flow with the infinite possibilities of the Universe. Ultimately, the intention of water is to return to the source: the ocean.
You did make a difference in the school. Your leadership was not so much about being a boss, but on how the school strove to serve each and every student under your guidance. Your efforts were towards ensuring that Balsam Academy was a school that truly took student learning seriously. We assure you that Balsam would continue to be the same school where every student, every teacher, and every staff would be valued. We have worked hard to create a community of learners and we would always remember your contribution.
On behalf of Team Balsam, we wish you good luck for all your future endeavours and hope to see you return to the source.

Dear parents of grade 6, 7 & 8,
Thank you so much for getting involved in the children’s learning at home. We understand that the children have doubts and you are eager to get us to help them. We have scheduled calls so that teachers can talk to students and clarify the same. Please note that the team is working from home from 9am to 8pm and members may not be in a position to answer your calls. If there is something very important, we request you to leave a message so that the concerned member can get back to you during the scheduled time.
Thank you once again for your cooperation.
