Learning is not attained by chance, it must be sought for with ardor and attended to with diligence.
Having faith in the spirit of the above quote, Seth Anandram Jaipuria school believes in creating opportunities for the students , rather than waiting for them to knock our door.We do not teach the students to fly, rather just give them wings, trust their abilities to explore and set them free to soar high in the sky of achievements. One such grand avenue for the students is our Annual event ‘Compufest – The Techno-Cultural Fest’, which saw its commemoration on October 30 and 31, 2018 this year.

The euphonious chanting of the ‘Sanskrit shlokas’ which accompanied the lamp-lighting, reverberated in the air of the auditorium and added to the piousness of the thought behind this grand fiesta.
