"I alone cannot change the world, but I can cast a stone across the waters to create many ripples." (Mother Teresa)
Education has always been the cornerstone of a society, the pillar on which the embankment of human existence rests or the perennial beacon as mankind made his/her way in to the unknown. The art of educating and its science underwent tremendous changes in the past but the core and the primary aim remains intact. True education strive to instil in every pupil a sense of virtue, wisdom, sensitivity towards the needs of others, life skills, right attitude and fear of the Almighty which in turn would help them to explore, excel and the power to act. Every school's mission centres around "Educate, enlighten and empower." A school becomes unique, distinctive and sought after, when it is ready to walk that extra mile with the students, ensuring the actualization of the three "Es."
Education is a life-long process and school life is considered to be the best phase in one's life as the rudiments of life are often absorbed here. It is such a unique phase where one is at liberty to be creative, experimental and exploring, without the fear of being isolated or criticized too much by his/her peer group. Education, besides providing knowledge is to make the young self-reliant, independent, enterprising, seeking and to be adapting. The trials and errors, positive vibes, diverse ideas, tolerance, team spirit, values etc. gained from school life, often acts as a base and provide impetus in the pursuit of success in life.
