Dear Members of the Inventure Academy Community,
On January 30, 2015, we lost Anne Warrior, a close friend, mentor, guide and source of inspiration to many of us at Inventure Academy. We have all been enriched in various ways through our relationship with Mrs. Warrior and she will be sorely missed.
Ms. Warrior was one of Bangalore’s most respected educationists and her sphere of influence and connections in the world of education, extended far beyond the confines of this city. Mrs. Warrior was born in England and studied at the University of London. She was a well-known educator in India and served as a member of the Standing Committee on Examinations for the Council for the Indian School Certificate Examinations, New Delhi. She was Co-Founder and Founding Principal of Mallya Aditi International School. She also served as Principal and educationist in other schools in Bangalore. Anne Warrior was Chairperson of Ujwal Trust and Co-founder of the renowned Srishti School of Art, Design and Technology, Bangalore. The Srishti School of Art and Design, currently trains 38 of Inventure Academy’s teachers through the CERTAD PPDE program (http://www.inventureacademy.com/trip-srirangapatna/).
Nooraine Fazal, Co-founder and Managing Trustee of Inventure Academy recalls, “She was one of the first people I met in K-12 education, shortly after I returned to India, about eleven years ago. She encouraged and supported me tremendously. Every conversation we had was meaningful.”

Mrs. Warrior’s funeral service was held on Monday, 2 February, at the Hebbal Crematorium. A memorial service has been scheduled for Wednesday, 4 February at 6:00 p.m. at Mallya Aditi School. Please keep her family in your thoughts and prayers.
