Mirza Samnani, 2012. Mechatronics Engineer and Executive Pilot at AAvirtual
Years of experiences, lessons and memories summed up in one word - BCISW. My school has played a vital role in shaping me into a responsible citizen of the society. It’s here that I imbibed the qualities of discipline, empathy, honesty, punctuality, in addition to the four core values that a BCGian possesses. I am grateful to my teachers who provided me a platform to nurture my passion and make it my career.

At Bombay Cambridge, every child was taught - whether in classroom, exhibitions or competitions – that aspiration is good, that everything is possible if one sets one’s mind to it, and that courage, confidence, strategy and diligence were greater determinants of achievement than one’s background. What is likelier to affect a child's attainment in school and in life is his or her mental and emotional well-being. This is one area where I believe Bombay Cambridge sets the gold standard.

Upasana Makati, Founder & Publisher, White Print, India’s First English Lifestyle magazine in Braille. "Sow a seed, water it, nurture it, love it and it will take the shape of a beautiful tree that blossoms and spreads happiness no matter where it stands. For me, the 10+ years that I spent at Bombay Cambridge School, Andheri (W) were the years that shaped the rest of my life. Having entered as a tiny seed, the love, affection, education not only pertaining to books and teachings of life, is what ensured I left as a fully grown tree, ready to blossom! Leadership skills, the urge to take initiatives and implement them have been a part of my personality since my school monitor days. Taking it a step ahead was the opportunity to be a part of the Student Council and becoming a School Captain at Bombay Cambridge School that beautifully shaped our potential and carved the best out of us."

Punit Pathak, famous Indian choreographer and film actor.
"My roots were set out here in Bombay Cambridge School. The memories are still fresh. It seems like yesterday that I was getting ready to go to the school. BCS-W had always given me the platform to explore myself. Be it studies, sports or creativity; from day one along with the studies, I was inclined towards extra-curricular activities - drawing, craft, elocution, handball, NCC, drama, speeches, sprinting, and of course dance. It has been an adventurous journey of life so far and it all started from this very place that is BCSW. I love my school and I am proud to say that I am a product of BCG!I would also like to take the opportunity to thank our Principal and all the teachers who blessed me with their knowledge and everyone who made my schooling so beautiful and memorable for me."
