It is a privilege to be a part of HVB as it celebrates 50 glorious years. The most memorable of all things was the unconditional love from all teachers, and even though they were strict with us, they always loved us. Our late principal Mrs. Daruwala, inculcated the value of discipline in us. We called her the Iron Lady but she had a heart of gold. The school imparted us with a sense of sharing and friendship that has lasted us for decades. Being able to get along with all different types of people and the confidence that brings to one person is the greatest thing I learnt from HVB.

HVB was an incredible and amazing journey for me as far as my life is concerned. My first 10 years at HVB were the most memorable of my life. HVB etched in my life the most important quality, that is the ability to believe in yourself, regardless of what it may be.

Education is one thing that remains with you for life long. If the base is strong and the foundation is strong, ofcourse you will go a long way in life. In HVB Academy you learn more of culture, you come out with flying colours, and still you have humility.
Mr. Vijay Kalantri

I have very fond memories of my school. The school is actually like your cradle and those are your initial formative years. The experiences you have in those years one can never forget. Even if one does not excel at academics, the overall personality development at HVB was fantastic.
