Message from the Chairman
The value of education
Education is not an end, but a means to an end. In other words, we do not educate children only for the purpose of educating them our purpose is to fit them for life. As soon as we realize this fact, we will understand that it is very important to choose a system of education which will really prepare children for life. It is not enough just to choose the first system of education only finds or to continue with one’s old system of education without examining it to see whether it is in fact suitable or not.
In many modern countries it has for sometime been fashionable to think that by free education for all whether rich or poor clever or stupid one can solve all the problems of society and build a perfect nation. But we can already see that free education for all is not enough, we find in such countries a far larger number of people with university degrees than there are jobs for them to fill. Because of their degrees they refuse to do what they think low work and in fact work with the hands is thought to be dirty and shameful in such countries.
But we have only to think a moment to understand that the work of a completely uneducated farmer is far more important than that of a professor we can live without education, but we die if we have no food. If no one clean our streets and took the rubbish away from our houses we should get terrible disease in our towns. In countries where there are no servants because everyone is ashamed to do such work the professor have to waste much of their time doing house work.
In fact when we say that all of us must be educated, we mean that all of us must be educated in such a way that first we each of us can do whatever job is suited to his brain and ability and secondly that we can realize that all jobs are necessary to society and that it is very bad to be ashamed of one’s work or to scorn someone else. Only such a type of education can be called valuable to society.
Education provides many lessons in life and adds to the knowledge that is vital for an individual to perform in this world. The aim is to let these seeds of knowledge bloom in to a garden of wisdom for it is wisdom that lets the individual strike a fine balance between his own material pursuit, spiritual enrichment and contribution to society.
Message from the Director
School and Home Cooperation in Building Attitudes
The school exists for the purpose of helping the youth in development of those understandings and knowledge, attitudes and appreciation, skills and habits necessary for civilized the living. To attain any measurable degree of success this work must be done cooperatively with parents who are the first and most potent educators. The school is merely the compliment of the home and all though in certain aspects of the educational process the school may exert strongly leadership it will always remain the agent of the parents.
The philosophy of the education holds that education is directed towards total development of human personality, it is a process of physical, intellectual and spiritual growth. While the primary function of the school is the transmission of cultural heritage which is usually designed as intellectual training, yet at all times the school like every other educational agent is dealing with the human being as a whole. This human personality is always a unitary thing and can not be dissected or divided. The development and training of the intellectual powers is intended to result in skill in the use of reason, but this skill is in turn to be applied to changing situations in which the child finds him self in life in the school, at home and in the community. The intellectual development of the school will be complete therefore, if it aims not only to impart knowledge, but also to confront the child with real problems and give him the opportunity and freedom to solve them.
We are saying that education must lead to intellectual ability in discovering truth, attitudes which will help the will to follow the truth, and to habits of goodness which will lead to the happiness of the individual and to general good of society. All educational agents must share in every aspect of this development. Even though the school may be primarily responsible for intellectual development it must also assume some share of responsibility for volitional and emotional and physical development, if parents have greater responsibility for moral and volitional development, yet they too must accept their share in the intellectual development. This philosophy provides a basis for the development of family attitudes through school and parental cooperation.
We seek best cooperation from the parents for the upliftment of their children. We assure them to do our best in the interest of their wards.
