Before I take this opportunity of sharing my views, let’s run through a few quotes presenting the views of these great thinkers:
“When learning is purposeful, creativity blossoms. When creativity blossoms, thinking emanates. When thinking emanates, knowledge is fully lit. When knowledge is lit, economy flourishes.”- Late Sri. APJ Kalam.
“Education is the kindling of a flame, not the filling of a vessel.” – Socrates.
The children of present day need to prepare themselves for the fast changing competitive Global world, for a successful career of their choice. This generation also needs to combat various socio, economic and even environmental challenges ahead.
In this scenario, we the Parents, School and the Society, are entrusted with the responsibility of ensuring the right environment; wherein they can nurture their skills, hone their abilities, enhance their thinking and imagination. Learning is no more confined to what is acquired within the four walls of schools or from the set of books, alone. More than the knowledge that he amasses, the ability in him to perceive, analyze, interpret, apply and review on various aspects of his learning process, reflecting logically with the right attitude matters.
Children also need to grow up, imbibing various social and emotional abilities to be a good team player, team leader and go-getter. Amidst all these, they must also mould themselves in to a humane personality.
Hence, in this given context, every activity a school takes up or defines through its vision for the children at large, with specific set of goals, matters a lot in the process of his overall self-development.
And, I am quite confident that our school “UNICENT” with its well thought over value system, coupled with its ever enhancing system of education, well designed curriculum and above all its committed team of teachers and Staff can effectively contribute to the overall development of every UNICENTIAN.
