The goal of education is not to increase the amount of knowledge but to create the possibilities for a child to invent and discover, to create human beings who are capable of doing new things.
We as educators, have an enormous gift to give. The gift of enhancing the lives of our students. The gift of teaching the children of this community, of helping them grow and succeed. Because we all know that what we give them inside the classroom extends so much further. This year, let’s try to take it a step further. Together, let’s create a vision.
First and foremost is the vision of excellence. Distinctions in terms of behavior, academics and co-curricular. The learner of today is learning differently in this digital age and our teaching pedagogy needs changes to connect better with them. Our children are living and growing up in tech culture. Their learning is happening anywhere and anytime and is self-directional. In this era of globalization and technology we all need some essential skills for better communication and learning. We need to trigger their curiosity and encourage them to think critically and creatively. We believe that education is for life and envisages an education policy which is not only qualitative but futuristic as well and has global acceptance too. To develop a global outlook and to give students an exposure of international standards, SwarnprasthaPublic school has world class amenities and infrastructure which speaks about our futuristic goals.
Swarnprastha Public School, follows the motto of VidyaPathimSwarnimin the very true sense. We want our students to develop cosmopolitan edge and outlook and at same time holding firmly to their root which is a rich legacy of strong culture, ethics and moral values. Students need to learn life skills to meet challenges of everyday life in healthy, responsible and acceptable ways. We need to focus more on skills and less on content. We rely on practical knowledge to inculcate academics as well as social values in students in order to put the interest of society and country at large before their own. Inquiry based learning and activity based teaching are part of the toolkit for teachers to kindle child’s curiosity using the latest technology. Pedagogy tools aim to converge towards generating independent learning in the student. A piece of advice to my students is:
“The best way to succeed is to have a specific Intent, a clear Vision, a plan of Action, and the ability to maintain Clarity. Those are the Four Pillars of Success. It never fails!
Rise and Shine………..
