P.E. Society has been making noteworthy progress for the last 81years along with the noble path and principles laid down.
The two remarkable words that appear in the names of the Society and its educational institutions are “Progressive” and “Modern”. The inclusion of these words was certainly with some noble intentions, which serves as a bright beacon for P.E. Society to follow with determination.
“Progressive” means keeping with the spirit of times and innovation while “Modern” means Modern in outlook, up-to-date in all matters whether it is an academic activity or a sports activity or a cultural activity. It was resolved to use modern equipments and modern methodology to teach the students.
Since its inception P.E. Society has never compromised on these two ideas, which are ‘VALUES’ for us. We are very proud to say that during the last 81 years of its existence the Society has more than lived up to its ideals. The alumni of the Schools / Colleges managed by Progressive Education Society have been doing excellent work in the different fields and are serving our nation.
