The resounding success of its alumnus Anmol Sher Singh Bedi in the Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) exams, the results of which were declared on May 31, has given his alma mater another reason to celebrate.
Bedi and his parents, Dr Sarabjit Singh Bedi, an academician associated with NIT, Jalandhar, and Jaspal Bedi, a social worker, have thanked everyone, including his school, for its significant role, which has enabled him to attain an All-India Rank 2 in UPSC and the first rank among the males appearing in the UPSC exam in 2017, in the first attempt. “We always knew he would get decent marks. But this is huge,” said his elder sister Gursimran Kaur Bedi, who is a BDS graduate. “I still think we all are living a dream,” she said. His mother said he was always an ardent student and his childhood dream was to become a public servant.
An elated Anmol Sher Singh Bedi visited his alma mater before leaving for Delhi, and has also promised to visit his alma mater soon to thank his teachers as well as to speak to the younger students and inspire them to aim high in life besides sharing tips about clearing the UPSC exam with them.
Happy smiles could be seen on the faces of the proud members of the school management, and teachers, who had taught Anmol at some point in time during his stint at Spring Dales as a student. Rajiv Kumar Sharma, Principal, Spring Dale Senior School, said all through his years as a student in Spring Dale Senior School, Anmol Sher Singh Bedi enjoyed an excellent academic and co-curricular record.
“He was a very active member of the school’s Student Council, an avid contestant in the Bournvita Quiz, and was among the team that represented the school in various National Olympiads. He was a member of the school team of 12 students, which participated in the Asian Regional Space Settlement Design Competition at NASA’s Johnson Space Centre, Houston, USA, and was the only team from India to qualify for the International Space Settlement Design Competition,” he said.
“He secured high distinctions in International Assessments for Indian Schools conducted by University of New South Wales Australia. He was a member of the School Quiz team . His team won the Bournvita Quiz at the state level,” Sharma added.
Congratulating him on his feat, Dr Kirat Sandhu Cheema, Director, Spring Dale Senior School, and Sahiljit Singh Sandhu, President, Spring Dale Educational Society, said, “His success has put the national spotlight on the high quality education being imparted at Spring Dales. This certainly means a lot to us. We are proud of his success and pray for the success of all his future endeavours,” they said.
