According to Joseph Addison, “Education is a companion which, no misfortune can depress, no crime can destroy, no enemy can alienate, no despotism can enslave. At home a friend, abroad an introduction, in solitude a solace, and in society an ornament. It chastens vice, it guides virtue, it gives at once grace and government to genius. Without it what is the man? A splendid slave, a reasoning savage.”
Academic excellence along with sports and co-curricular activities has been the hallmark of S.P.S. As someone rightly said, ‘The aim of education is the knowledge not of facts, but of values.’We provide a platform for our children to showcase their talents and discover a new facet of their personality. Our endeavor is also to inculcate leadership qualities in our children.
A child requires for its growth not only food & shelter, but also the various social & emotional experiences that come from love and affection shown to him and also the training given to him. Intellectual and social development of a child depends on a large extent not only on the brain inherited, but also on the environmental opportunities available. We should try to give our child the best of the world, school as well as home. We should try to infuse in them, a liberal spirit of humanism to nurture their physical, intellectual and aesthetic facets.
At S.P.S., it is our sincere endeavor to delineate a program of studies, games and co-curricular activities which help a child to appreciate the knowledge and not compel him to seek it. Let us pledge together to devote our physical and mental skills and nourish our children to build the future of India!!
