We provide a peaceful grounding to the young saplings to enroot their own separate selves and grow within their own best characters. Grooming the children with virtues, high morality, and most importantly to inculcate in them to respect time, family values, honesty and guard their inner self. To make the young minds aware of their true self. The children are introduced with their skills, strengths and weaknesses to be moulded into the best they can become by striving for their positives and mould the negativities to become the better self. Most importantly to be able to accept themselves as they are and take the situations as bravely as they can.
About Us
Today, we are on the Information Superhighway, hurtling towards contestable goals, amidst the clutter of reckless information. We are saturated with information instantly available at the click of a button. We have to teach our young to sift the heap and pick up information that builds values which contribute to a better world. A nudge here, a tap there, a gentle reprimand, a soulful connect, a little shout, a soft word and we steer our children to ‘Swadhyaya’ (Self Learning) - the best form of learning. We have consciously designed curricula and programmes to bolster self learning to achieve holistic development of the children under our care. We endeavour to create an environ where the child talks to himself, learns to question, debate, argue, has a dialogue with himself, learns to introspect and contemplate in his journey to discover himself. Once he succeeds, the rest inevitably follows.
Obviously, this is not possible only by concentrating on the mental aspect; it is rather impossible till we aim at developing the physical, mental and spiritual well being in unison and blended synchronicity. Only then, will our children be able to contribute to nation building and humanity at large.
We wish to create a positive ambiance for our children to learn, grow, aspire, explore, discover and eventually achieve. The good teacher is a spark plug, not a fuel pipe. Once the fire of curiosity is ignited in the child his transformation begins. We take this humble step towards a powerful effort to transform lives. Let nothing impair the creativity and imagination of the child, the attributes that he is naturally blessed with. Unfortunately, so called education does just the contrary, as it churns out rote learners incapable to think for themselves.
We have embarked on a new journey, a detour of sorts from higher education, for we felt the need to work at the grassroots to transform education as we know it today. We have a strength of approximately 300 children, assisted by 20 Educators including various PGT’S, TGT’S, PRT’S & art teacher & music teacher. We have a Learner - Educator ratio of 15:1 thereby providing individual attention to each child. The school is affiliated to the Central Board of Secondary Education, New Delhi upto the senior secondary level. You hand us a budding child; we shall be returning you a responsible and kind human being.
