Significant support by her teachers, and facilities provided at the academy

Amandeep Kaur, the Sports Teacher at Akal Academy, introduced her to Fencing. But in the beginning, for her, Fencing was just a hobby. She was not keen on sports. Her teacher, Amandeep Ji, identified her talent and took her to the District Level Competition, and there, she secured 2nd position and was selected for the State Level. She has never looked back since. 


Govindnoor finds herself lucky enough to have such supporting staff at Akal Academy Teja Singh Wala, who always helped her manage exams and sporting competitions. The staff and teachers at Akal Academy Teja Singh Wala provided her with never-ending support, which helped her dream big and land on the achievements.

She is good not only in sports but also in academics. She is a State Topper in the Indian Talent Olympiad. She secured 95% in Grade 10 and 83% in Grade 12. 

Kaur’s Role Models and inspiration
