From the Principal's Desk
As Shakespeare said, "the pen is mightier than the sword" the pen itself is not enough to make an effective writer. The new generation is away from reality and they are in a dream world. The reality of life will be convinced to the children through counselling by the parents, teachers or counsellors. When most people talk about a school curriculum, they think about Maths, Science and language Courses. Seldom do I hear about moral values as being part of the curriculum. Neglect of teaching moral values in schools is hurting our students and causing problems in the society.
The primary goal of education should be enabling students to gain knowledge and moral values, as they will need both in preparing themselves to be good parents and citizens in the society. The fact is that lot of kids are not learning from their parents, the difference between right and wrong unfortunately, many of the role models of young people are setting bad examples.
Most important or highlighted moral values for students are to learn are Love, Compassion, Honesty, Hard work, Respect, Co-operation and Forgiveness. A person of character has the wisdom to know right from wrong. The importance of developing character is emphasized in the national standards prescribed under physical education. Since we as educators are entrusted with safety, discipline and instruction of our pupils, youth for about half of our working hours, the influence, the instructions and potential learning that occurs at school will be life-changing. Development of moral reasoning skill does not promise behavioural change, but it does promise individual soul searching and reflection on personal beliefs, values and principles.
As the first person of this institution, I want to appreciate all my students and educators who are always actively engaged in all kinds of school activities. I once again want to thank my educators who always make sure the students are getting what is required whether it is academic, emotional, spiritual or physical.
