We are on the brink of sta5g a new school. If s a great challenge because schools are like places of worship - once started, they are never abandoned. In them we teach and learn not only science, mathematics, history, geography but also values, tolerance, humility - in short- everything. Here a child's attitude is developed which, in today's very competitive world decides the path that the child will take. There are only a few pen and paper exams that one takes in life but we are tested every day on the battlefield of life. One is tested for honesty, hard work, values, and also for looking for rainbows in the sky. And to win these battles, we need to have the right attitude. Good schools build not only knowledge - but also the right attitude in a child.
Schools must teach children to win and lose gracefully. They must teach what the Dalai Lama so rightly said "When you lose -don't lose the lesson". Math, English, Science etc are taught in every school. They are all taught in a particular way. Everything has changed - but teaching methodologies haven't!! Classrooms still have teachers teaching with the help of blackboards, chalk and dusters with an add on of interactive boards!! And then schools test children as if they all have exactly the same kind of brains!! But we are not going to be an 'every' school. We believe that all children have different skills and as such we will cater to the varied needs of all our children.
"Consistency and patience are two virtues which are nearly forgotten in today's fast world. Everyone wants everything "fast". But success is a slow process for it to be long lasting. We must try to teach our children that patience is important. I would like to quote Friederich Nietzsche who said."
"He who wants to fly one day, must first learn to stand, and walk, and run, and climb and dance. One can not fly into flying". "A journey of a thousand miles begins with a small step".
As we take our first steps, I welcome you to join us!!
