Children are the dreams that are handed over to the teachers and schools for a safe and secure future. Today there is a longing in the hearts of all those people who are truly concerned about the future of all our children for an educational pedagogy and philosophy that is capable of providing an education that is truly progressive, creative, holistic, relevant and practical in context and nature.
The aim of our school is to impart balanced and all round education to promote an integral personality of each student. We believe that children are full of ideas and bounties of imagination, hence we lay emphasis not only on academics but give equal importance to sports, yoga, art, meditation, dance, music, public speaking, creative works, etc. The motive behind is to promote originality and creativity, and make them strong citizens of a strong nation.
In my experience as a principal for 15 years and as a teacher for more than 5 years, I firmly believe that, along with the balanced education and values that are caught from the environment alone can enlighten and blossom as full human being. Therefore our school cherishes the dignity of each child as the child of god. So the school seeks to foster in the students an education based on Gospel values and true values our Indian culture.
The school shapes its curriculum to inculcate in the students, the value of love, brotherhood, justice, honesty, truth, simplicity, tolerance and compassion. It is keen to develop in them a sense of responsibility and sensitivity to the needs of others and the attitude to face future difficulties with courage and optimism.
