"Elpro International School has always endeavoured to think beyond the conventional teaching-learning methodologies. The Masterclass series is one such initiative that focuses on contemporary education. As an institution we strongly believe that more and more opportunities should be made available to the students in their school years, laying a strong foundation, so that their academic knowledge is well-complimented with skill sets essential for the 21st century. With the Masterclass series, our school is venturing out towards a world of new professionalism and ensuring that the new generation of students are well-informed, equipped with required skill sets and are absolutely career ready. I will like to encourage all other schools to make most of this opportunity for their students," said Dr Amrita Vohra, Director Principal of Elpro International School.
