The Pune division for the CBSE Class 10 examinations recorded a whopping pass percentage of 99.92 %. This is the fourth-highest pass percentage in the country! The national pass percentage is 99.04 %. We are happy to hear that all Pune schools performed well. But we are beyond happy that one of the children at our partner school, Vikhe Patil Memorial School, Lohegaon, is one of the four city toppers!

Rishit Kesharwani scored a near-perfect score of 99.8 %! What’s more, he scored a hundred percentile in four out of the six subjects he appeared for. With 99 percentile, his English marks are also as good as it gets! We were all excited about Freadom’s 5th anniversary, and the good news from Vikhe Patil School was just the perfect icing on the cake.

The flurry of good news doesn’t stop here. Vikhe Patil School, Lohegaon was also one of our July Rankboard schools for the West zone! Our team had conducted a storytelling session at the school in June. When schools that register high reading minutes on Freadom perform well academically, we become all the more confident about our vision and beliefs. When we say children who read perform better academically and professionally, we mean it, it’s backed by vigorous research. We are grateful that Vikhe Patil School proved it for us! In fact, they are just as committed to reading as us. By getting on board with Club1BR, a mission to create 1 billion young readers, Vikhe Patil School showcased that they cared about the holistic development of their children. We are glad that they are getting the results they deserve. But we are not the least bit surprised. With hard work, dedication and focus come great results.

A huge shout out to all the teachers, children and management of Vikhe Patil School, Lohegaon! Hearty congratulations to the toppers Rishit Kesharwani, Hiya Bhat and Maithreyi Sadagopan, all of whom scored more than 97 %!

Come join us at Club1BR and be a part of a group of successful, impact-driven schools from around the world!
