The Indian Education System has its merits and these have ensured that India is on the global educational map. There is a definite overlap between senior secondary learning outcomes and that of higher technical education. This is enabling agencies in the name of coaching classes to make hay with the promise of getting students ready for each level! Children have diverse interests and today there is an avenue for them to pursue it as their career. But the School system until grade 10 makes it compulsory for students to pursue subjects that may not be of their interest/ ability – to a depth that is more than basic knowledge. The Child should instead from grade 6 level begin veering towards the subjects of his choice. These subjects, which may even be of a vocational nature, should carry credits that will count for admissions to higher education.
The technology has revolutionized the field of education. Teaching has become more visual than verbal. A stimulating schedule of versatility and vibrancy is followed which includes creative essay writing, elocution, quiz, dance, drama, street plays, music and singing competitions, fine arts competitions, theme based morning assembly, art and craft exhibition. A system of seen paper and open book paper has also been developed for in-depth preparation. In our school we provide a palatial, secure and environment friendly edifice with seven computer labs, camera systems for vigilance, intercom connectivity, well equipped science labs, fully computerized administration block, eBeam interactive device, a well stocked three-story computerized library, robotics and dynamics, multimedia hall with LCD projectors, gymnasium, a well equipped auditorium, publication room, activity and creativity rooms and a vast playground. The school organizes teacher training programmes at a regular basis to keep the staff abreast with the latest. Our school has compulsory one hour morning activity for students where they practice a sport of their choice. Our school encourages participation in district, state, national and international tournaments. We provide coaching for a wide range of sports.
A Crow was absolutely satisfied in life. But one day he saw a swan. This swan is so white and I am so black, crow thought. This swan must be the happiest bird in the world. said the crow, "Actually," the swan replied, "I was feeling that I was the happiest bird around until I saw a parrot, which has two colors. I now think the parrot is the happiest bird in creation." The crow then approached the parrot. The parrot explained, "I lived a very happy life-until I saw a peacock. I have only two colors, but the peacock has multiple colors." The crow then visited a peacock in the zoo and saw that hundreds of people had gathered to see him. After the people had left, the crow approached the Peacock. Dear Peacock, You are so beautiful. Every day thousands of people come to see you. When people see me, they immediately shoo me away. I think you are the happiest bird on the planet. The peacock replied, I always thought that I was the most beautiful and happy bird on the planet. But because of my beauty, I am entrapped in this Zoo. I have examined the zoo very carefully, and I have realized that the crow is the only bird not kept in a cage. So for past few days I have been thinking that if I were a crow, I could happily roam everywhere. That's our problem too. We make unnecessary comparison with others and become sad. We don't value what God has given us. This all leads to the vicious cycle of unhappiness. Value the things God has given us. Learn the secret of being happy and discard the comparison which leads only to unhappiness.
According to me, a good school does not feature only the furniture and infrastructure, it is the teachers who makes it a good school. Without being boisterous, I can say that, a good principal with a vision (along with the management) to lead and convey the same to the teachers who in turn will lead the students to follow the same mission and vision and the total outcome will result in a good school.
In todays world it is performance that matters and doing well in exams is top priority. Use of gadgets increases IQ levels but it also destructs as students want to use them all the time. Allow children to use them but only for a certain period. A two-hour weekly assessment on Sunday by picking random questions on subjects would do wonders. Have specific play time. For parents it is important to say it’s OK and ‘just do your best’ parental assurance is important. Never say you must get 98%. A parent is often heard saying that the child is not studying, but the child need not study so much. In the lower classes parental supervision is necessary but in higher classes a certain level of industry is required.
