ACADEMIC HEAD -PRIMARY
"“Children must be taught how to think, not what to think.”
As a child I always wondered “why should I study any language...? why should I know what 178762+28765 would add up to…? why should I do some science experiment using salt, water and some wire?... Why should I know what happens when two chemicals are mixed? Why should I know how our government works? How does all this matter to me anyway?” By the time I got the real meaningful answers to the above questions I was out of school and was staring at an even tougher college life.
Do these thoughts sound familiar? I am sure most of us would say “Yes”. Do we really want our children to think and experience the same? “I would say No”.
In Today’s world our youngsters face a world full of challenges, constantly testing their capabilities & abilities. I feel these challenges are only going to get bigger & more complex as time passes and the only way we can ready our children to face them is by encouraging them to question & seek answers for the same. Children should be made aware about the true purpose of education. How is it relevant to them and how is it related to their daily life. This understanding will help the child choose what they would love to do tomorrow.
I strongly believe… Education is not about what the child learns in school, but it is about what the child does in life on basis of his lessons learnt in school & life.
At Malgudi Vidyanikethan, we focus on the learning rather than just reading lessons. I am truly grateful for the opportunity and the responsibility given to me to ensure that every child at Malgudi Vidyanikethan walks out to face the world with more knowledge and confidence based on the foundation of lessons learnt at school. I truly wish that each child builds many floors of authentic success in life.
