The bus service is available from all across Patna but the commute time is kept to a maximum of 1 hour. This is possible due to the number of buses plying on the same routes. We have around 100 buses running all the time. School buses are well-maintained, AC, GPS, speed monitoring. The students are under the supervision of an attendant throughout the journey for both picking and dropping.

Mrs. Reshma Singh became a part of OMK in February 2014. She is a Masters in Labour and Social Welfare. At present she is pursuing her Masters in Education. A prominent and well known name in the field of education across the city, a role model for many teachers and a motherly guide for numerous students, she has always aimed and prioritised PERFECTION. She has a vast experience of 14 years in the field of education, out of which she has served as the School Coordinator of OMK for 5 years.
A mingle of contemporary and traditional personality, she completely envisions to help OMK establish new landmarks.
Education is a very dynamic process. Holding a single framework to achieve educational edification won’t give results all the time. Hence changes are needed looking at the demands of the present world. We, at OMK, believe in changes, changes that help travel to a much diverse era of growth and development, basically the era of improved academic structure.
With every passing day, a contemporary addition is noticed in the field of education. By the time the students adjust to the stable system, another introduction aiming at their development is put forward. Such quick transitions pose fear among the students and they tend to lose their ways. At OMK, we address and direct at preparing students to become intellectually proficient, spiritually oriented, willing to serve, committed to doing justice and open to further growth.
OMK has grown tremendously over the years and we firmly accredit we will continue providing a positive, safe and enlightening aura ensuring the multi-directional growth of the children. Creating and continuing with such an environment that will serve the purpose of motivating students to learn and achieve to the best of their abilities and simultaneously push to the greatest of potentials is our apex motive.
When we talk about achieving the aforesaid motive, it will be impossible if we don’t have a team that is envisioned and dedicated to students’ development. We are very fortunate to be in the possession of a team that envisages the necessity of the hour and perform accordingly.
To conclude, I just wish to asseverate that we prepare and train students to become intellectually aware citizens, critical thinkers, environment lovers and sensitive human beings. Also one important attribute that we try to inculcate is to set their fears aside so that they can transmute themselves into self-assured beings.
Yours in education
Mrs. Reshma Singh
