At SVES, we believe that this starts right at the beginning of the child’s schooling stint, and to this end the Pre-Primary section
has been instrumental in many ways. With the integrated efforts of parents, teachers and the support staff under the able leadership of Madam Vaswani and Mrs. Sumita Ganguly, the Pre-Primary section had organized many notable activities, competitions and celebrations. All these and much more would not have been possible without the wholesome participation and reditable.
