The present century is the century of the “Millennium Generation” – A generation that sees the world that is so unusual. A world that is bursting with new ideas.
Saakaar – Our annual souvenir is an attempt to capture this world through the eyes of our students and give them an opportunity to express themselves through the “armoury of their mind” which is their imagination.
In our materialistic world there is a shift of emphasis from holistic education to education that brings instant economic returns. From “Who am I?” to “What should I become” ? This is indeed a dangerous trend. The founders of progressive education all insisted that the highest function of education is to bring about an “integrated individual who is capable of dealing with life as a whole”. While academic excellence is of prime importance, education should also cultivate the moral, emotional, physical, psychological and spiritual dimensions of a growing child. Thus, it is our endeavour to keep alive the “flame of intelligence” and bring out the unique gift contained within each child’s spirit.
The school has been growing in strength and achievements in all dimensions of educational endeavour- from academics to sports, music, dance to art and computers. Through a plethora of activities our efforts to develop and nurture the spirit of youth in each child is very satisfying.
The involvement of teachers and the co-operation of the parents have helped us to strive towards excellence.
We shall move together towards tomorrow to explore the vast skies, scale great heights and discover new depths, overcome hurdles and make a difference in the world.
May God help us, as we take up the challenge.
