Principal’s Message

Dear Parents,

Hellen Keller had said, “The most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched, they must be felt with the heart.” Schooling is that beautiful stage in life, which you feel about and realize much later in life how important and useful it was and you thank your parents and stars for that opportunity.

Teaching is my passion and I also made it my profession. School is the place where my heart lies! Unicent School’s philosophy that ’Every child is unique’ means every child is different in terms of abilities, learning styles, interests, personality and overall behavior. These differences are respected and appreciated by me. I strongly believe in the holistic development of students- for them to be creative thinkers and problem solvers and independent individuals. I also believe that school is the learning environment that grooms children to be empathetic human beings and productive citizens where delivery of academics is interwoven with the development of life skills and value systems through early enrichment opportunities for children. As an educationist I place specific emphasis on language improvement. I have relentlessly worked on a whole systems approach for every educational unit to ensure that these objectives are met.

Good schooling brings a whole set of life skills and values along with the academic training that it gives. Schooling builds a lot of nostalgic memories which stay for the life. In todays world of technology and media, answers and information are available everywhere, we have to teach our students, how to select the useful. So the primary skills to develop are language expression, creative thinking, and analytical skills and all of them are inter-related.

My core values are honesty and integrity, punctuality and effective time-management, taking initiatives and with great faith in the power of persuasion.

To sum it up, I often quote Alvin Toffler, “The illiterate of the 21st century will not be those who cannot read and write, but those who cannot learn, unlearn, and relearn.” We as a school would have failed in our duty, if we do not teach our students to ‘learn, unlearn, and relearn’-the primary requirement for todays generation to lead a fulfilling life and to become productive citizens of the country.
