“I believe that the real purpose of Education is to build character.”
And I strongly follow that purpose.Our values and beliefs lie in ‘Our children’, their uniqueness and their achievements. Therefore, our endeavour is to build the community of teachers and students working together. While we aspire mainly to give our children world class education and environment… have acollaborative, holistic , integrated and purposeful approach into building the school….an active simultaneous effort will go into building a strong value system, so we always remember who we are and where we come from. While our school gives us wings to soar…our values keep us grounded !
Character building also requires imbibing Sanskars, which, to my mind, can best be defined as a set of values, principles and practices that we inherit from our family, culture, religion and the history of our nation, learnt from experience, passed down from one generation to another.For a strong character, we need to inculcate the Sense of integrity, Sensitivity, Fulfilment of potential, Well-being, Self-Education, Decision making and Compassion.
Alongside, an understanding, that learning should be life-long.. ”Never stop learning, because life never stops teaching”. Your knowledge is yours forever, no one can take it away from you… We look forward to working with our parents and facilitators community to provide a high-quality education that you all deserve.
