Having been an educator for several years, I keenly support the pivotal, proactive role an educational organisation of repute plays in today’s society. If I feel honoured to be in charge of a seat of learning that can mould the most significant resource of any nation — young, impressionable human minds – I am also sensitive to the important implications of this enterprise. Keeping the contemporary global and national context in mind, we, at GIIS Chinchwad Campus, strive to make the pursuit of excellence a way of life; a habit. Our school is filled with enthusiastic students willing to learn, supportive parents interested in their children's education, and a dedicated professional staff committed to providing the students with a quality education.
An institution, complete in all respects, we are committed to provide our students with the best school educational experience. Students and staff engage in interactive learning through the best use of innovative methodology, logical orientation and modern technology. Strengthening of fundamentals and sharpening analytical skills is given primary importance. Along with academics, emphasis is laid on participation in extra-curricular activities in order to develop physical agility and acquire life skills like team spirit, leadership, decision making and public speaking. In our school we understand that discipline is essential for the meaningful growth of society and hence we endeavour to inculcate the highest form of discipline amongst all students. We believe that good communication skills are necessary in all walks of life for students and can be enhanced through extensive reading, creative writing and participation in extracurricular activities.
It is often said, "One who dares to teach must never cease to learn". The field of education has been very close to my heart since it is one of the main tools which transform a person to live a better life and more importantly contribute for the betterment of the society. I have learnt not only from my seniors and colleagues, but also from my students and parents, through continuous interactions. Education is not just teaching and learning lessons. It has to be concerned about building human values along with knowledge. It shapes individuals in their formative years and imbues them with values that would govern all their choices in life. I believe that with a little hard work, some attention from parents, guidance and a pat on the back from teachers makes the process of learning easier, acceptable and more enjoyable for the children.
Challenge and Discovery are two exceptional traits that every Alpinian learns to grow with. In our students are encouraged to try again and again, to become self advocates in a background that is conducive to learning and attain success. Students are encouraged to take advantage of the many resources and opportunities available to them. They need to clarify their doubts by the Teachers who are more than willing to spend an extra hour such that the child understands the concept. Hard work, dedication, commitment – the core values imbibed by the students from the Alpine staff has helped them achieve this commendable grades and marks. This truly states that without continual growth and progress, such words as improvement, achievement and success have no meaning. I am sure such exposure would not only bring in great satisfaction but acts as an incentive to perform better.
"Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world and children are the medium through which the change can happen" A positive change or in other words if we want a better tomorrow we must inculcate values in our young minds. Education without values is like a flower without fragrance. Teachers and parents are the role models and play an important role in shaping the personalities of young learners. A child is a precious gift and nurturing it with love and care is a sacred responsibility. We need to belief in the innate resilience of every human being and with the metaphor that all of us who work with youth are gardeners where young children are like flowers in our care. We at NPS Chikkabanavara believe that when a child social and emotional needs are met, he or she can participate fully in the wide range of learning opportunities here at school. All children deserve regardless of their life experiences positive and enriching school experience…..…We work to make that possible. I call upon all our teachers and parents to join hands and believe in the strength based perspective. Let us make a difference to young people by being a change catalyst.
