Can we create an educational system Which will retain smiles on the faces of our children througout the period of their education, Right from the time they start attending school till they take up the job? Can we truly make this possible? I belive we can do it only if we make the education system an enjoyable system experience and provide employment opportunities to all the youths, based on their aptitude and ability.
Nurturing creativity for the development of a well-rounded and fully-groomed pesonality is one of our strongest features. It is at the core of our organisational stratgy and the prime motive behind our mode of functioning. It academics we have the honour of having thirty of our alumni in the IIT's, thirty in medical in medical colleges and 10 in management institutions, just to cite a few; in sports and games, our 6 consicutive wins in CBSE East Zone Badminto Championship for girls, 5 in Handball and 9 Championships in Zonal MHRAT Basketbal(Girl's) as well as 9 overall Championships in the Zonal MHRAT set us a class apart. In cultural activities we have been the winners in the Inter-DAV English One Act Play competition 5 times in a row-a difficult to match feat for any other school.
Teachers in a society carry the greatest responsibility- the mission of igniting curiosity among the young. A curious youth is the most powerful resource in the world. The role of the teachers is like that of a ladder- the ladder itself stays in its place but gives opportunities to other to rise. I belive tjere os mp ptjer profession in the world that is as noble as that of an educator. Therefore, the aim of the teacher should be to build character and inculcate values that enhance the learning competence of children. He should teach his scholars to be confident, innovative and creative to make them enterprising enough to take on the future of all hues.
While classroom learning is important, what student learns through self- observation outside the classroom is equally vital. a child must be an active participant in the the process of learning through field studies, experiments and discussions. To achieve this, school must move from being mere bookish educational centers to becoming wide-ranging knowledge and skills hubs.
We are firmly of the view that creativity can flower only in an environment of love, care and trust and that nothing hinders it more than fear. Hence, in our scheme of things, use of force i.e punishment, and corporal punishment at that, is an absolute taboo. We have made it a point to move in sep with the modern enlightened philosophy and practices of pedagogy in which corporal punishment as a coercive tool is for the tyrant and not for the teacher.
