And wings were given to this knowledge that elevates all, wins against all.
The Wings of a Kingfisher that dives deep, soars high and shines brilliantly as it soars.
So that every Welhamite knows at all times who she is and what she is meant to be.
The School Motto, so carefully chosen by Miss Linnell, embodies the essence of the Welham Spirit: Aartha Shanti Phala Vidya - The Fulfilment of Education Is to Bring Peace to the Suffering. While inculcating the best of Indian culture and tradition in its students, the School aims at developing in them a sense of discipline and a spirit of service and fair play.
The school brings together girls from varied backgrounds and socially diverse groups and instils in them a belief so strong that they learn to appreciate this diversity and become appreciative of one another.
We celebrate not our riches or the number of campuses we have across the country, but the inherent spirit of a school that has imbued its students with a love for independent thinking and right action. Welhamites have the ability to walk down paths that many others may fear to tread, with the confidence to take initiative and to carry others along.
This School was born to nature and to aims of the highest order. To send out into the World young persons who were themselves a triumph of Nature. Strong yet gentle, bright yet wise. And capable of taking on their own world. “Make us chose the harder right than the easier wrong” said our Founder, setting us our focus in no uncertain terms, whilst inspiring us to an enlightened humanity within.
Let us then, like ‘Khada Himalaya’ stand steadfastly through thick and thin and continue to exemplify the unity that held us together in School. Let us resolve to maintain and expand our core connection, enjoy being Welhamites and bring memories to life. Most of all let us us keep the Spirit of Welham fresh and the Kingfisher Soaring High.
