What can one say about a Declamation program that does justice to the school and the subject? That both were world class; that both comprised a superb dedication; Gurus; Shishyas; Environment. The conduct of program and hospitality; the small things that separate mediocrity from excellence were worth raving about. The warmth, hospitality, bright kids and role model leadership and teachers, perhaps all of them put together made things world-class. In short; a great Institution; a great, learning program. More Kudos to Pinegrove than ever before!

The Pinegrove Conclave will remain a memorable experience for us. The arrangements, hospitality, care and attention to the minutest detail - were unsurpassable.You have shown us the "ultimate" in organising a Conclave. Words aren't adequate to thank you for all that you have done for us. The Staff and Liaison Officers were very nice. There is a wonderful ethos created in the institution.The children are highly talented as evidenced in the beautiful dances and play we were treated to. A school essentially is an atmosphere, a culture, an ethos. The moment one steps into Pinegrove one feels and "smells' a unique fragrance of quality and excellence. Please keep it up.

Wg Cdr SM Shukla (Retd) And Mrs Sumangala Shukla
Secretary IPSC Golden Jubilee Conclave

We have some unforgettable and nostalgic memories from Pinegrove School, of the historic event – The Platinum Jubilee Conclave of the IPSC 2014. The entire show was very well conceived, planned and flawlessly executed. The theme, the inaugural function (including the Band Display of the school) , the key-note addresses were befitting to the importance of the event . The workshop on the theme of the session ‘Nurturing Hearts’ was well planned and well conducted. The cultural programmes were very well presented; the drama ‘Pinjara’ was very powerful. The social functions in the evening were most enjoyable. The liaison officers were very sweet and very helpful. Incidentally, we found ever body we interacted with very pleasant, very helpful and speaking very well about ‘Pinegrove School’. Even the children were very sweet and appeared to be very well settled. We are happy that the historic function was held in a school, which is a class by itself and a worthy member of the IPSC community. There could not have been a better place to conduct the Platinum Jubilee of the IPSC. We are sure that all this would not have been possible but for your personal guidance, leadership and hard work; and in your efforts, your Team ably supported you. Your staff rose to the occasion and brought your dream to a reality. We compliment and congratulate Pinegrove School and all members of your staff and the students for the job well done. May God bless you all.

It is well backed by awesome infrastructure that the school is providing to its students – the labs, the library, the hostels, the auditoriums, the swimming pool, the courts, the ground ………….. are all out-of-this-world.

My visit to Pinegrove has been an education. I have been seeing the school since 1991 and have watched with amazement its phenomenal growth. I have no doubt that within a very short span the school has made mark for itself. The infrastructure is comparable to some of the best public schools established over a century ago. However, what is most striking about Pinegrove are its students, who have a very positive outlook and are truly ‘public school products’

It was one of the most delightful moments of my life to have witnessed such a unique and wonderfully presented Annual Prize Distribution of a School. Pinegrove is situated in a beautiful environment deep in the lap of nature. The performance of the students displayed the highest standards of discipline, coordination and sequence resulting in an exemplary function.The opening item was the School’s NCC Parade and Guard of Honour, which was the highlight of the day and it looked as if Gentleman Cadets of the IMA in Dehradun were performing their passing out parade. This was followed by Yoga which was like Swami Ram Dev’s Camp in progress. The Gymnastics display was comparable to a national level competition and the Rajasthan Dance mesmerized the public and took them right into the interiors of the sand dunes of Jaiselmer. The Indian Orchestra presented by over fifty students was brilliant and the School’s Annual Report presented by four small students of Class-V, stole the hearts of the audience and was par-excellence. The one-act play “Ahmed” was truly in consonance with the need of the hour and promoted National Integration and Secularism. The play was wonderfully directed and acted. All the items presented were truly of the highest quality ever witnessed by me. I am very pleased to see that Pinegrove is doing great yeoman service to the society and providing quality education to the students from all over India and is one of the best schools I have ever visited. The other high standards of the school including discipline, academics and other activities have been established by the dedicated efforts of Capt. AJ Singh and his partner Mrs. Samiksha and they both need to be congratulated for their stupendous efforts in making Pinegrove one of the best schools not only in Himachal but all over India.

It has been a wonderful journey and a great learning experience from being a teacher to working at Jet Airways followed by a stint with the British Embassy and now working as an Analyst in E-Commerce in the Financial Sector in the US. I still use those skills I acquired doing presentations and displays at Pinegrove. I also acquired a secret of my success at Pinegrove “Learning must never stop”. I learnt a lot teaching little kids how to be responsible citizens and good human beings. I owe it all to my savoir faire at PINEGROVE and it holds a very special place in my heart and always will. Not to forget we share a very special part of our lives – Our Birthdays.

Chairman, IPSC

I have visited the school in connection with its affiliation for IPSC membership. Pinegrove School has a serene pollution free and very congenial environment quite suitable for all round growth of students. The school has good infrastructure, equipped with adequate apparatus required for sports and academic development. The students are well dressed, the staff is devoted and presentable, and the management is enthusiastic and conscious about quality. The School administration has taken pains to make it a beautiful “Temple of Learning”. Pinegrove is a good case to be considered for IPSC membership.

C. L. Gupta
Chairman, Himachal Pradesh Board of School Edu.

I got an opportunity to preside over the Annual Function at Pinegrove School. The school has developed in all the facets in a short span of a few years. The display of physical exercises and cultural program was really remarkable which speaks volumes about the quality of school. Their ‘Art and Craft’ exhibition was also praise worthy. Words fail to express this beautiful experience, it can only be felt. ‘No one can feel the dew drops on the green grass unless one takes a walk on it early in the morning’. The children’s program was an experience by itself. I wish that the school progresses continuously and the children develop in all spheres of life.”
