A spot of divinity touches this beautiful earth and it is unbelievably transformed into a human form with all limitations and aspirations of a human! Yes… a child is born and he/she triggers forth with his/her mysterious journey called ‘LIFE’. To quote Kahlil Gibran, ‘Your children are not your children. They are the sons and daughters of Life’s longing for itself. They come through you but not from you, And though they are with you yet they belong not to you…You may give them your love but not your thought…’ This is exactly the responsibility or the role that the external influences have to play in a child’s life, to motivate and guide him/her to refine his/her personality so that he/she lives up to the reason and meaning behind his/her birth.
From his/her ‘first school’(home), having been taught affectionately the first lessons of life, the tiny tot is handed over to the responsible hands of his/her ‘second mother’. The days at a kindergarten play a crucial part in his/her life. He/she is separated from parents and he/she learns without his/her knowledge to cope with the changing environment. The beautiful art of sharing emotions, sharing ideas and even sharing eatables adds colours to his/her blossoming personality. On the playground, when the child falls and bleeds, still he/she gets up to run forward, he/she learns the epistemology of adjusting with falls and failures. And also, when the child fails to get expected marks, still he/she is able to smile and pat his/her top grader’s shoulders with a compliment, the real sportsman spirit is inculcated.
With all the basic skills of learning like listening, speaking, reading and writing, he/she sharpens his/her oratory skills, fights against the monstrous stage fear and emerges as a great actor/dancer/sportsperson and what not!
The most beautiful and equally challenging teenager is well-structured and channelized under the efficient team of teachers and the visionary planning of the school management. The curriculum, the extra-curricular activities, the sports and cultural events shape him/her into a being of humaneness, empowered by life. Skills and the urge to add his/her beautiful drops of water to the mighty ocean of the world… Wherever the child goes he/she carries the banner of values that he/she learnt from his/her SCHOOL.
So…who can deny the Angelic hands of school behind a child’s magical personality?
