Ashok Hall Girls' Higher Secondary School
"I will always be indebted to you for providing me an opportunity to visit Birla Tyres factory at Balasore in class 12. That exposure at a young age seeded the interest for manufacturing business. Eventually that brought me into manufacturing of air springs (made of rubber) for the automotive air-suspension applications for the last 15 years.
I can’t thank you enough and all the teachers & staff members of Ashok Hall for everything."
"I wish to thank you and the entire administration of the school as well as the teachers for their contribution towards this achievement."
- Abhishikta Ray, Batch of 2011
“Ashok Hall has contributed so much in making me who I am today. I can't thank the lovely teachers enough who have shaped the formative years of my life.This gesture sure makes me feel that I was part of a great institution with great values.”
“I wish to thank you, the school authorities and my teachers for giving us students the opportunities and encouragement from the start to pursue our dreams.
Be it playing the piano during assembly, taking part in inter-school festivals or starting a class newsletter, I have cherished each opportunity extended to me at Ashok Hall. This has helped shape my personality immensely. I owe any achievement of mine to my strong roots and am a proud alumnus of Ashok Hall.
I am beyond grateful.”

“Looking back at the school days, I have developed a deep appreciation for the exposure that was provided to us by the school. I was also apprised of the multiple initiatives being taken by the school to connect with and to showcase achievements of the Alumni members and I commend the effort. I too, believe that such efforts help encourage and inspire students and show them the possibilities for their own lives. Our founder, Mr.B.K.Birla, he was a mentor figure whom all of us looked up to; and Ashok Hall has been, and will always be, close to my heart!”

“GDB is a school to which I owe so much. ...a school which has laid down a very
strong foundation to my educational profile. Even during the time of my higher
studies abroad in German history politics and culture it is ma’am Vayjanti Bose's
lessons on Hitler and 2nd World war and Ms Samarpita Gupta's lucid explanations of
fascism and it's difference from capitalism and Socialism....that have greatly helped
me while I was preparing my research paper in Germany.
I also want to thank ma’am Anusha Mukherjee, ma’am Alpana Kumar from the
bottom of my heart whose explanations of Hamlet and English poetry have helped
me greatly even during my days of Masters and Double Masters.
In fact to be honest all the teachers of GDB during the time I studied.... starting from
LKG till grade 12 were wonderful. I love them, respect them and miss all of them. 14
long years in GDB have given me so many wonderful memories ...which I will

connection with my roots, my institution, which inculcated in me the values, ideas and passion for seeking the path of knowledge.

choose, but a holistic life lesson.
The educational tour to Kalaikunda Airforce station, the sessions that we had in Kala Mandir, the spectrum practice session, and the culmination of it into the biggest
event of my life at that time was an amazing experience altogether and great
learning for me.

Your passion, commitment and drive to inspire our nation’s children and young minds makes us incredibly proud as your students and inspires us to follow in your
footsteps as we progress through our lives and careers.
What is also worth mentioning and recognition is that, despite the significant constraints and challenging of these times, we GDB, were one of the first schools to
go digital in West Bengal, or maybe the entire country. And I have no doubts that this has been achieved due to your singular focus of always going the extra mile for
your students and ensuring that learning and education remains paramount.
You and our school, are not only inspiring our students but also setting an example for the future of educational frameworks in India. Thank you so much for helping us
shape our lives and aspire for brighter futures, instilling the resolve to face adversity, helping us to find our voice and setting us on the path to contributing for the greater

Surprises are always the best thing that can happen to you amidst all these chaos. One such surprise made my day, when I received a call from my family informing me that a package was delivered with my name on it and it was from GD Birla School.
Almost 13 years since I passed out from that school and they send me such a surprise..! I am literally overwhelmed. Thank you so much !
I'm one of the privileged student to be a part of G.D. Birla School. I have been associated with this institution from 2005 to 2007.

Dear Fellow Admininistrators,
Kindly let me know how the school may benefit from any services from my end.Will be happy to humbly extend that with my efforts.
As the years passed by, the educational edifice you grew up in unwaveringly stood tall against unsettling odds. Each fragile block that we cemented, turned into a structure filled with supreme strength and courage. Inside the structure are preserved your little footsteps that, today, have turned into wondrous temples of inspiration and awe. Your notorious sounds and innocent chatter linger in every block of our structure, preserving it against perils and precariousness.
To stand the test of time during the pandemic, the structure in which you once resided, needs your support against an overwhelmingly reckless force that has vexed mankind. The yesterdays with you need the palm that we held and walked for a today that can overcome obscuring obstacles.
Your concerns will be cherished for time immemorial.
