Quality Education for next generation  

Principal's Desk



                                       Mr.Sebastian.T.Joseph

Education consists of the training of all the senses, along with the mind instead of cramming the brain with memorized knowledge. Ironically, modern education emphasizes on gathering information rather than transformation.

The need of the hour is to develop individuals who have a different inner approach to look at things, a different attitude in what so ever they do, who are capable of doing new things and not simply repeating what other generations have done.

Our education system is designed in such a manner so as the give opportunities and exposure to the students to develop various skills.

Our students are given ample opportunity to develop their skills by a plethora of activities i.e. in order to develop communication skills; they are motivated to participate in various debates, extempore, group discussions and speech competitions. The involvement of students in a group, interaction and communication will help the development of interpersonal intelligence.

My message to all the readers is- “Every day is an opportunity to be creative-the canvas is your mind, the brushes and colours are your thoughts and feelings, the picture is a work of art called, ‘my life’ ”. Be careful what you put on the canvas of your mind today-it matters.

The school of my dreams will impart an education that gives thrust on developing all the dimensions of a child’s personality- intellectual, moral, emotional, social, psychological, cultural and spiritual. Here, we impart an education that creates a community of lifelong learners, happy, contented, positive, balanced, confident, independent and humane individuals who can divine the purpose of their existence and lead a purposeful life and in the process contribute their might in creating a balanced society.
