The new week had a cool beginning as heavens sprinkled cool showers heralding the imminence of ensuing monsoon season. …And the weather has been unusually pleasant during the week, with the scorching sun simmering down giving way to cloudy skies and intermittent showers.
Admission results for the coming academic year of the Sri Sathya Sai Institutions were out this week and one could see a mix of joy and sorrow on many an aspiring face who have toiled hard appearing in the entrance exams hoping to learn at the hallowed portals of the prestigious Institutions.
CBSE results for the XII standard examinations were announced this week and a whopping Ninety-seven per cent from Sri Sathya Sai Higher Secondary School, Prasanthi Nilayam passed with distinction. Of the 116 students who took examinations, 113 passed with distinction and the remaining three passed in first class, making it cent percent first class result. C. Sai Krupa from the Girls’ Wing of the Sri Sathya Sai Higher Secondary School scored a highest 98.2 pc, followed by Gokul Jayaram and Saru
Trikha 96.4 pc and L. Naveen 95.6 pc who stood third.
“It is primarily the Grace and Blessings of our Dear Bhagawan that enabled me to achieve this success” said a delighted Sai Krupa who was specially blessed by Bhagawan during the evening darshan on 22nd May.
“This is a residential school in a rural setting and our teachers are available to students for around 10 hours every day”, said Y. Shivaramakrishnaiah, Principal. “We adopt a holistic approach to education. Academics apart, sports, cultural and spiritual development, and extracurricular activities are all given importance”. The school that strives for bringing up self-confidence with faith in God along with best academic excellence has over 1,500 students and 150 teaching staff making it a unique unit, a rare gem on the national school map of India.

22nd May marked the second anniversary of the passing away of legendary Sai Geetha, Bhagawan’s pet elephant. Though no special programme was arranged on the occasion, the new incumbent, the little Sathya Geetha was brought to the Divine Abode, Yajur Mandiram, on the 21st evening and Bhagawan was welcome with loud trumpeting of the ‘little one’ when He came out of the Abode for granting darshan.
With one more week left for the institutions to reopen, students on vacation would be returning to the respective campuses by the month end. Barring UG in Economics, all other Under Graduate courses for boys would be shifted to Brindavan Campus, Whitefield, with effect from the new academic year.
With the University and Higher Secondary school admission procedure completed, the focus of attention would now be on to the Primary School Entrance Exam results, due by this month end. Hundreds of tiny tots from all over India took exams during this week end, ever ready to bloom and get groomed at His Divine Lotus Feet!
