Down Memory Lane (2008-2020) - Jean Andrew
My remarkable journey in Swargarani School began in the year 2008, when we moved to Bangalore. The beautiful sylvan surroundings of the school first caught my attention when our family moved into the neighbourhood.
It was indeed a privilege to meet Sr.Thomsin, the Principal of Swargarani School. Seeing my credentials and experience, she appointed me as an English teacher. I was doing my M.Phil in English when I joined, and sister encouraged me to complete my studies and motivated me. Thus, it was smooth sailing into Swargarani family.
During my tenure in Swargarani School I had the privilege of working under the able leadership of Sr. Thomsin, Sr.Anjana, Sr.Anne and Sr.Tanya, who I remember with great regard and love. Sisters always appreciate dedication and hardwork. Having imbibed these values from my parents, it heped me a lot in my career as a teacher.
Teaching has been my passion and God enabled me to serve in this institution for His glory.
The Swargarani management played a crucial role in the well-being of the staff members. Sr.Lucy was a real mother to us all. Her smiling saintly face was an inspiration to all of us. I recall Sr.Anna as a prayerful mentor and Sister Immaculate as a dynamic versatile genius.
Teaching is a noble profession but challenging too. The quiet time in the prayer hall gave us the strength to face challenges. I enjoyed teaching Shakespeare’s plays whose characters come to life when students enact it in class. Being a part of the school choir was a great blessing.
English Department has a unique place in school. There were moments of happiness and tough challenges too. Staff picnics and Christmas celebrations are etched in my memory.
I fondly remember the management, Principal, my dear colleagues, and my beloved students who are entwined in my life. As the school grew in leaps and bounds, I missed the intimacy of Swargarani family. Change is the only permanent thing in life. As the saying goes - the old gives way to the new, and I felt it was time for me to retire.
My best wishes and prayers are always with you as you celebrate twenty-five years of excellence. I wish to conclude with a note written by my student.
‘A teacher should have a special place.
In every child’s heart
You are a very special teacher.
And to me you are number one’
If I have influenced a child in my tenure of nine years in Swargarani my mission is accomplished.
My journey at Swargarani.
Memories have been a part and parcel of my life, much like everyone else. One of the best memories I have is of my days at Swargarani. The very first memory from school is when I was 5 years old sitting in a cabin with the principal on the other side of the desk interviewing me for my admission. The warm welcome that I received that day is something I'll cherish forever.
No one could be as supportive as my teachers, nor could anyone have been a better guide. I've had a few teachers who have believed in me more than I did myself. They made school more homely and made sure nothing distracted me from being myself. My teachers have been more than just helpful; they encouraged me to do better in all my exams, they patiently helped me out with all my doubts, and most importantly they never gave up on me. If it weren't for their help, support, and confidence in me, I wouldn't have been the person I am today.
I've made a lot of friends in the last 12 years, and over time, managed to have my group of best friends with whom I spent a lot of time. Enjoying with my classmates during breaks and in between classes, having lunch and catching up with friends from different sections, playing table tennis and basketball, reading comics in the library, are just some of the amazing memories I have with my friends. Every event at school brought a smile to all our faces because it meant having a lot of fun. No matter what the event was, all of us surely had a great time.
Swargarani has been my second home where I've spent the most wonderful, enthusiastic and, fun-filled 12 years of my life. It has been a marvelous and memorable journey. "Thank you" doesn't justify how grateful I am to everyone at Swargarani who've made my journey the incredible one it is.
Swargarani School - 11th Year of ...
Swargarani School - 11th Year of Growing together ....During Pandemic too...
We entrusted our child to Swargarani School in 2011. Now he is in 9th std. It was a long journey for us. Reflections are definitely satisfying and gratifying. The school emphasizes discipline as the soul of education, which the management never compromises. Simultaneously, we realize that they are proactive and sensitive to the genuine concerns of the parents. Bring any problems/ concerns to the principal; there is a professional solution with human approach. Be it academic, psychological, personal, or even economic issues impacting the student, there is a pro student approach from the school. Providing emotional support to them in all the areas is critical. We parents and teachers have equal roll in the area.
We are now in a different world due to pandemic, that has turned our comfortable world upside –down. Schools have re-examined their priorities. It is challenging to make the school relevant in the times of virtual or distance learning. The past year has brought many issues which are threatening our hopes for a peaceful world. It is real tough and had work, trying in to stay afloat in this crises. The education sector is facing serious issues and would surface more in the coming long time bubble due to uncertainties.
It is imperative to support together to help our children to overcome the physical and emotional challenges . The parents community and teaching fraternity have to move together hand in hand to eliminate the present and future barriers in education process.
In the present dismal scenario , the Swargarani School Management is a role model in terms of supporting / sustaining the students as well as the parents.
The school provided Fee Concession to all, for the Academic Year and much more for the eligible and needy, highlighting the motto of ‘ service to the community’
This school is strongly recommended for all the young aspiring parents.
We are sure Swargarani School family would definitely overcome the Pandemic related obstacles and move ahead further in flying colours.
The academic year 2021-22 is a very special n great occasion.
SILVER JUBILEE YEAR
Rich memories of a Quarter Century.
A meaningful n satisfying milestone marking your Vision, Mission, Commitment, and Achievements.
There's a Silver lining in the clouds above, and Silver is now the symbol of your Excellence.
Wishing Swargarani Management, Visitation sisters, Staff, Students and thousands of Alumni a Grand Year of colourful Celebrations.

Swargarani school is not just a learning place.It is a second home for both students and teachers.The homely environment of Swargarani school attracts thousands of students and parents . I, Hemavathi M.R, Hindi lecturer of Swargarani School and P U College joined the school in the year 2001. 20 years of service have flown very fast under the able guidance of five eminent dynamic Principals, supportive management and wonderful collegues .
In these 20 years as I have seen this school, it is not only famous for its academic excellence but sports and co-curricular activities too. In this journey I have seen our students successfully completing their academics and prepared for their future. The overall development given by the school empowers them to lead a value-based life.
Charity begins at home. Since our school is our second home it teaches us how to do the charity at school level and makes the students aware of their social responsibilities. Even Swargarani does a lot of charity work by giving free education to unprivileged students. The school management always stands with the parents and faculty even in the most difficult times like the pandemic.
As our Swargarani School motto says 'Lead Kindly Light’ the school is enlighting each and every student and they carry their candle of knowledge and values to enlighten the world. It makes me immensely proud to see our students in flying colours across the world.
Swargarani management's constant support, selfless service of pioneers like Sr.Immaculate and Sr. Anslem, extraordinary Principals like Sr.Soley, Sr.Innocent, Sr.Thomsin, Sr.Anjana, Sr.Ani and our present Principal Sr. Tania, dedicated staff has made Swargarani a very prestigious institution in Karnataka and Bangalore.
I am very proud to say that I am a Ranian . This year 2021-22 Swargarani School and PU College is celebrating its Jubilee year. I wish and pray that this glory continues.

Student of Swargarani School
I am Amulya Bhat. I joined Swargarani school in 2008 as a pre schooler and it has been a marvellous journey of 13 amazing years.
Swargarani School has an excellent educational system and also astonishing extra curricular activities. From very supportive, extremely friendly, well qualified and dedicated teachers, Principal, management and very hardworking non teaching staff, Swargarani has it all. They understand us in all respects and guide us till the last moment.
I still remember the first day I went to Swargarani as a pre school student. From then, till date I enjoyed each and every day of schooling. It has a very good atmosphere that keeps students elated and joyous. I have completed my entire school life from pre nursery to 10th in Swargarani.
My school provides enormous opportunities for the students' overall development in different fields like cultural activities, sports, speaking skills, quizzes, debates, declamations and many more to improve students skills and develop their talents. I am also a part of Scouting and Guiding. Swargarani has spread its wings far and wide. It has a very good name and has also won many prestigious awards with the help of its able teachers and ever supportive management.
Even during the pandemic year, at the time of lockdown teachers worked hard, day and night, to provide us the best education. They conducted online classes for a year. Even though they were not tech savvy, they took it up as a challenge and they succeeded. They made presentations to help us understand better. They also conducted online examination which helped us to realise our mistakes. Even though it was hard for the teachers, they didn't even take a break and taught us every single day to make us understand the concepts better.
My school teaches us valuable life lessons that are very essential to lead an upright life. It teaches us discipline, punctuality, honesty, compassion, charity, life skills and ethics. As a part of Scouting and Guiding, I have learnt to be thoughtful, resourceful, independent and helpful. My school has made me stronger, braver and a better human being. I have overcome stage fear because of the enormous opportunities I got in extra curricular activities.
I feel blessed to have been a part of such a wonderful school that has given me life long memories. I would like to thank my Principal Sr. Tania, Manager Sr. Immaculate, all my teachers, non teaching staff and the entire management for all the support. I would also like to thank my school for making me the best version of myself.
As Swargarani School steps into its glorious Silver Jubilee year, I congratulate and wish every Ranian on this occasion.

One thing that kept me going in 2020 was revisiting my memories. Memories from school, and memories of school trips and classes and every bit of laughter, smiles and tears shared in between those rows and rows of experiences. Your school years are your golden years, in terms of the friendships you get to cultivate and nurture, the knowledge you get to absorb and the overall growth you get to experience and be an active part of, and Swargarani is truly the place where I made some of my best memories till date.
I started out as a tiny little kid in the 3rd grade at Swargarani, quite unsure of where my ambitions lay, with my arm in a cast and my parents carrying up my bag for me to my class because I couldn’t take the weight. After 7 years, when I graduated from Swargarani in the 10th grade, my time there and my experiences with my friends, my amazing teachers and the super encouraging staff had somehow helped me determine my dreams going forward, and made me ready to carry any sort of weight the world could throw at me.
Seven years...wow! When I was in school, seven years seemed like such a long time and I wanted to grow up and graduate!
To a child, school life- with its innumerable amount of homework, repeated unit tests and exams and class tests (oh those pesky class tests, how I used to dread them!)- is cumbersome, just a stepping stone, nothing of importance particularly. But now, as an adult who will be leaving home- quite literally- to step out into the world, I want nothing more than to turn back time, go back to school and start afresh (maybe even take those tests again!) This is because Swargarani made those years memorable, enjoyable and filled them with so much of love that I can’t help but remember them fondly!
In morning assemblies where I half-paid attention to what was going on, and spent the other half talking and laughing with my friends, Annual Days and Sports Days preceded by rehearsals in the sun and making fun and just having a gala time, Talents Days that started out as nervous and terrifying but were made bright because of friends’ teasing and teachers’ encouragement…If I begin to truly open up that big box of memories I have and look at each one of them one by one, we’ll never get to the end of it!
It’s been three years since I graduated, but even today, during every December, I think of the Christmas celebrations at school- dancing in the assembly, coming back a little upset because we were yet to write that one last Unit Test paper (always either Moral Science or GK, we used to hate it, but that was part of the experience too!) and then exchanging gifts under the LED lights, with chalkboard Santa Claus waving at us merrily and gobbling up the plum cake we used to get. These are the memories that will last you a lifetime, and give you nostalgia for maybe all your life, haha!
On the occasion of Swargarani’s Silver Jubilee, I will only say this- every single minute I spent at school- whether it was hanging out with friends in lunch break below the beautiful Gulmohar tree, or deriving inspiration and motivation to continue working hard from my teachers in the classroom-I cherish all of it.
As an alumnus of this wonderful school, I couldn’t be happier that Swargarani is already at a Silver Jubilee! I wish everyone at Swargarani School a wonderful time going forward, and hope to see many more such Jubilee celebrations!

As far as I am concerned, it was a long 10 years journey as a Ranian from my third grade. Swargarani is a school landmark that cannot be missed while travelling or walking around the campus. Her fame and excellence has augmented in leaps and bounds in past 10-15 years. For instance, show me a corner of the town she is situated and I will show you at least one successful Ranian.
Ever since I joined, she’s growing at a rapid pace. I witnessed many transformations- red playground was paved with tiles, incognito eyes were installed in every corner, i.e. mischiefs reduced to some extent, new buildings erected, new library, Cozy Cradle and still the list goes on.
Lunchtimes were really über cool. There has never been a single lunch in which I had only my lunch. It was always a melange of northern-southern delicacies. From sixth to twelfth grade, every students gathered in the ground. Maximum density observed under the trees - 5 persons per sq. metre. Tiles saved many from having ‘soil-rich’ food.
Though my participations in cultural events were very infrequent, sports was the only field I could say as extra-curricular. The howls and shouts of ‘SATYA! JYOTHI! SHANTHI! SPOORTHI!’ still resonates in my ears; it could impulse the weakest runner too.
Fun and jokes in class peppered my school life. Bearable mischiefs were very much occurring inside the classrooms and were hilariously accepted by teachers too. Teachers had truly been a source of perpetual motivation and support. They are really great architects- architects of students’ lives. Swargarani gave me innumerable opportunities to serve her and I could even be a prefect in Student Council Members for three consecutive years.
I really miss all those golden days of my life very much. Proud to be a Ranian. Wish the time rewinds back!

I am Mrs. Rajeshwari Gurudath. Swargarani School is one of the most prestigious educational institutions in Bengaluru and I am very happy and proud to say that I have been a part of it in its initial years.
I joined the school in 1998 and spent three of my most memorable years there. In fact, when I recall those years today, I still feel overjoyed!!!
In 1998, Swargarani School was a sapling - today it has grown to be a tree with its roots deep and wide.
It gives me great joy to see the school’s remarkable growth over the past two decades.
Sister Soli who was the Principal of the school then, was not only loving but also a mentor and guide.
I still remember vividly how Sister Soli, Sister Immaculate and all the other sisters treated all of us with love and affection and instilling a sense of order and discipline.
I came to know that the alumni of the school are doing well and are now in different parts of the world!!!
On this wonderful occasion of the Silver Jubilee Year I wish and pray to the Almighty that the School grows from strength to strength and continues to nurture the lives of its students, staff and the society.
