Provident housing, a wholly owned subsidiary of Puravankara Ltd recently announced a strategic alliance with St Andrews School, a 33-year old Hyderabad-based educational institution, to build chain of schools along with Provident Housing projects in Bangalore. With a mission to impart quality education at affordable prices to Bengaluru, St Andrews plans to take this legacy eventually across the country with the new brand Winmore Academy. With the core values of St Andrews, brand Winmore aims to take forward excellence in education to a larger and diversified community.
St Andrews: emphasis on overall development
The Winmore Academy is known for its state-of-the-art infrastructure and facilities. With an emphasis on the overall development of a child’s journey in school, Winmore focuses on providing sports, arts, and other extra-curricular activities apart from academics. This optimal combination of academic excellence and a host of co-curricular opportunities is indeed the need of the hour to face the challenges of the 21st century.
St. Andrews School, Whitefield, will be the first school under this banner. The school follows CBSE Board Curriculum and currently caters to students from class 1 to 6, with kindergarten being offered from the next academic year. A school in Jakkur is also being planned to be opened next year.
Provident Housing : a perfect partner
In order to fulfil this vision of taking the Winmore brand forward, St. Andrews has formed an alliance with Provident Housing Limited. Known for providing quality housing, Provident is one of the largest developers for affordable homes in the country. This tie up is sure to facilitate and enhance the efforts behind Winmore Academy in crafting an unparalleled schooling experience.
With a view to combine housing, education and affordability, Provident customers will have preferential access to Winmore Academy, as the aim is to have a Winmore academy close to most Provident projects. Under this arrangement, Winmore academy plans to set up schools close to most Provident properties and its upcoming projects in order to ensure the availability of quality education at the door step of all Provident customers.
Speaking on the occasion, Mr. Ashish Emanuel, Director, St. Andrews School said, “Winmore Academy is a significant milestone in our journey of providing high-quality affordable schooling. We are proud to associate with Provident Housing, who share a similar vision of providing quality affordable housing to a broader spectrum; which will amplify our efforts behind Winmore Academy in crafting an unparalleled schooling experience.”
Commenting further on this initiative, Mr Ashish R Puravankara, Managing Director, Puravankara Ltd. said, “At Provident, we always believe that quality and affordability go hand in hand. A good quality education system lays a strong foundation in a child’s future. Our strategic collaboration with St. Andrews School is a conscious effort to offer best schooling facilities to all our discerning Provident home owners. In future, we intend to bring Winmore Academy closer to all our projects with an objective to make quality affordable education more accessible”.
A fruitful association indeed that is in the interests of not only the customer but also the next generation too!
