IMPRESSIONS

Children are our precious assets. – Katharine kersey says “Children are given to us as loan, for a very short period of time”. They come to us like a packet of seeds,no picture on the cover, no name, no guarantees. We do not know what they will look like, act like or achieve. Each seed is with full potential to blossom into a total life. Our job, like the gardener’s, is to meet their needs as best as we can.

So education is no more a mere certifying and qualifying proposal. It is much more than schooling. Schools like ours, try to impart child centered education as each and every child is unique

If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost. That is where they should be. Now put the foundation under them” says Henry David Thoreau.

Hope and pray that our aspirations are fulfilled.
