Vice Principal's Message

We often worry about what a child will become in the future, yet forget that he/she is SOMEONE today. Often we lack experience and fail to see child’s progress from one developmental milestone to another. Public at large focus on physical health, material wealth and cognitive aspect of intelligence as advice and help are more easily available. The less tangible but equally important is the need to raise EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE(EQ) and spiritual awareness in our children, which are usually taken for granted.
Children usually ask for mobile phones, TV, computer, vehicles etc and we too tend to think that providing these gadgets, a hefty bank balance along with educational qualifications will give them a happy life. Many parents feel that they have done their duty if they give formal education to the children and settle them, only to realize later that they could not give to their children something more vital-balanced emotions, capacity for healthy relationships, ability to handle stress and a right perspective of life.
We also find parents and teachers put undue pressure on children to excel in scholastic achievement which reflects on so called IQ. This in itself is not sufficient either for success in life or for overall well-being. As parents and teachers we need to introspect and learn skills to make improvements.

Our school provides a value based education to enhance and promote the human conditions such as peace ,love, justice, honesty, cleanliness, social concern, quest for truth, dutifulness, fidelity, integrity ,creativity, commitment and so on keeping in mind the development of EQ, along with I.Q.

I conclude with the quote:

If you love your work
it is ‘happiness’
if other recognise the results of your work.
it is ‘success’
if you dedicate those results to God
then it is your ‘prayer’
(Mother Teresa)
