FOR THE YEAR 2017-18
Dear and Respected Chief Guest, Prof.K.U Arunan Master, MLA of Irinjalakuda, Kattoor Panchayat President Mr.Manoj Valiyaparambil, DYSP of Irinjalakuda Mr.Famous Varghese, ACET Chairman Bava Darimi Sir, School Manager Siddhiq Haji, General Secretary Janab Musthafa Saquafi, School Administrative Manager Yasir Sir, MPTA President Janab Azad, other Trust and Development council, MPTA Executive Committee members, Parents, Teachers, Non Teaching Staff, Well Wishers and my dear …., smart, active and vibrant angels of Albab; Good morning to all of you.
I consider this as a special privilege to present before this August Assembly the 14th that is, for 13 years continuously by myself, the annual report of the school. At the outset, let me thank the almighty, omnipotent, omnipresent and yet ever loving and caring God for a very successful passage of another year for all the members of Albab Family. It has been another year of growth, development and achievement for our unique, special and multifaceted school. Apart from academic excellence, the overall development of our students has been our priority, with a special emphasis on spiritual, moral, ethical values and wellbeing. We try to maximize the potential of each child by fostering love of learning in a challenging and balanced environment, so that they muse with nature and chat with confidence. Hence they come to learn and go to serve, and bloom to win and ultimately become a source of happiness and solace for all, especially their parents, teachers etc.
Today’s children are confronted with the new age of information, communication and entertainment. The media world is undergoing massive changes. The twists and turns in the field are mind bogging. Unprecedented changes are taking place at the wink of an eye. Materialistic culture has assumed monstrous proportions. Joint families have become a thing of the past and parents hardly have time for their children. Therefore in spite of getting all material, comforts, today’s youngsters feel hopeless, helpless and distraught and get emotionally imbalanced. Albab plays very pro-active role to save our children from the negative consequence of the pressures of the complex modern living. Education is only a milestone in lives’ journey and the youth has to face the challenges of the stiff and cut throat competition. Knowledge, ideas, planned approach, bold action and help of the teachers with their visionary and missionary spirit enable the students of Albab to get rich diligence in their present and future life.
Albab Central School, became a reality in June 2004, with 156 students, 7 teachers, 9 non teaching staff, now has classes up to Plus 2, with 1283 students, 79 teachers, 5 office staff, 26 Ayahs, 13 drivers thus making 126 staff with almost all the infrastructures required as per the guidelines of CBSE. Albab Central School is a dream that has become a reality. From its very start, it has been fulfilling the aspirations of parents, yearning for better educational opportunities for their wards and hence marks the emergence of a new dawn in the annals of learning. Besides it aims at creating best human beings with values that help the child to strive for a highly civilized and orderly society. It is certainly in these respects that Albab School stands with a special crown among other educational institutions with its vision, “To be one of the best educational institutions in the region as a centre of Excellence”.
We strongly believe that only when education moves along a creative, cultural and developmental path, we can mould the children into exemplary citizens of the world community that the new millennium hopes and looks forward. Only through a child centered education, we can arouse the natural talents, inborn potentialities and capabilities of every child who is uniquely created by God and in fact each child is a gift packet to us. For this in Albab we are following a very rational and systematic staff – students ratio of 1:35, to provide a personal touch, individual attention, substitution of punishment by counseling and to follow effective remedial measures for the so called slow learners.
To help and encourage the children to do only right and useful things, Roll of Honour Chart is followed in every class where all the positive qualities and efforts of the students are properly observed, noticed and duly graded by the teachers every month. The Roll of Honour toppers are encouraged in the assembly with trophies and medals. Albab strongly believes that education should make an individual self reliant, a leader and capable of inspiring and motivating others. It is for the achievement of the above mentioned objectives, here we follow the methods like Juniors Teachers, make creative and innovative school assembly, which is managed by the students themselves, bright students helping the slow learners , systematic writing of the news, introduction of the dictionary culture in every class, activity oriented teaching learning process, making English talking compulsory in the school premises, helping every child to learn the Tense and multiplication Tables by heart, helping the students to follow a systematic Time Table even at home, encouraging others to do right things by correcting the wrong things and so on. Hence it is an educational institution where each child is cared individually. Naturally the dormant talents of each child are awakened and everyone is enabled to become a perfect individual with a global level education. Here the teachers are facilitators, who give necessary guidance to the learners to be self – reliant in their lives; capable and efficient leaders, competent in inspiring and motivating others with the mission of the Institution, “To provide quality education to students and enable them to become ethical and productive citizens to lead the Global Society”.
To make the children aware of all the important National festivals ad celebrations and the rich cultural heritage of the country, Onam, Independence Day, World Environment Day, Teachers Day, Children’s Day, Republic Day, Iftar Meet, Ramzan Fest, Christmas etc are celebrated in the school in befitting manners and the house notice board are decorated and presented by the various houses in a competitive spirit etc, with matters related with such evenets.
When muslim students are provided with the best possible Madrasa Education in the school, the non – muslims are provided with Moral Science, and for which we have devised a new method of assessment. 70% of the total marks is given for theory examinations and the balance is given for their practical behavior, response, activities, conversation, actions and so on in and around school premises. Hence Moral Science will certainly look in to the real behavior and spiritual life of every child in a very systematic and logical manner.

Our school is a child and Eco-friendly one which is trying to turn education in to a culture based working pattern which should be natural, interesting and inspiring activity for the children which is noted from the interest, vigour and dynamism of the students in and around the school. Hence the school has achieved many things, and many mile stones are still to be crossed.

Success in the present competitive environment depends to a great extent on the quality of knowledge and how best it can be put into practical use. We have to improve our education system to better heights to meet the principle of “learning to live together”, which means trying to agreeing on common values and contents – at the same time, caring, sharing and networking of resources and expertise. The future belongs to those who are able to dream and to make their dreams come true. For the deeds of today were the dreams of yesterday and the dream of today will be the deeds of tomorrow. Let me conclude with the inspiring words of Vivekananda and I quote ‘Arise, awake, and sleep no more, within each one of you, there is power to reverse all wants and miseries……. You can do anything …….. faith, faith, faith in yourselves, faith, faith, faith in God, this is the secret of greatness’. Unquote, So we are going to strive to seek and not to yield and let us all join hands to make our dream come true, certainly with the blessings of the Almighty. Remember we cannot do great things, but we can go ordinary things in a Great Manners, which will make us successful people. Once again, with a “Big thanks” to each and every one of you, and thankfully expecting the same cordial co-operation that favored our yesterdays and todays and with all the best wishes and prayers.
I conclude my words ……..
Thank you and Jai Hind
