Principal’s Desk Update- December 2022

  • 8 December 2022

Dear Parents, 

The very exciting and happening year, 2022, is nearing its end and I feel that it is the right time to seek new challenges. Yes, I am moving out of Oakridge International School, Gachibowli after an amazing journey of over two decades.

A heartwarming journey where year after year I witnessed batches of little curious toddlers holding their parents’ hands and hesitantly walking into the campus for the first time. How gratifying it has been to see these same kids grow into responsible world citizens, as they confidently walked out of the school, to attain greater heights.

I have enjoyed a wonderful stint at Oakridge since 2001 and have received tremendous love and support from parents, students, and colleagues. I have had the fortune of seeing Oakridge grow from strength to strength to become the world-class legacy school that it is today. 

As I move on, I am truly happy that Oakridge is in safe hands- the family of Nord Anglia Education schools. Also, I am sure that it will continue to flourish and grow under the new leadership of Mr. Christopher Short MD, NAE India, and Ms. Dipika Rao, Director of Education at NAE India and the interim principal of Oakridge, Gachibowli. Ms. Dipika has over 25 years of experience in the realm of education and has been closely associated with some reputed educational institutes globally. I am positive that the staff and students will learn a lot under her guidance.

I will surely miss being in contact with each one of you and wish you all the very best. My email ID is active till 23rd December 2022, please feel free to reach out to me!

With loads of love and regards to all the Oakridgers — I remain forever grateful and blessed.


Warm regards

Hema Chennupaty
