The Principal's vision
If you think you can, you will be.
Beliefs are powerful, so much so that they can either help you grow and overcome obstacles, or not. The Buddha himself is quoted as saying “He is able who thinks he is able.” Granted: you can’t simply believe that you’ll grow wings and fly, but being realistic about what you believe and what you think you can do might make all the difference. How could you possibly expect to solve a problem or resolve an issue or think of a groundbreaking new idea unless you first believe that you can?
There have always been means to express your creativity, your perspective, your opinion. Expressions such as painting, writing, speech, poetry, etc. have been the foremost & choicest methods of portraying what you are thinking. Expressions are alike. Words are chosen as per your mood. If you think lofty, you would choose lofty words such as magnanimous, gigantic, while if you’re sad, you would choose sad words such as gloomy, depressed, etc. It works the same with painting. If you’re happy, your hand moves on bright colours, while your gloom takes you to darker & gloomy tones.
Our work at the school has been to define new standards and redefine the old ones to bridge the gap between the old systems and the new to perform flawlessly. Keeping abreast with the pace of 21st century, the emerging role of the school, as the cusp of societal change and as a cradle of genesis for initiatives as well as nation building, makes our motto, “Making Life Meaningful”, even more significant. Our efforts in this academic year were focussed towards bringing in global best practices as well as a deepened bond with our partner schools across the globe for exchange programmes.
As the world opens up new frontiers in mindset, technology, sophistication, medicine and breaks barriers in education, humanities, astrophysics, the capabilities of man are exceeding every myth that has ever existed. But what has been essential, as core to the central idea of solution, has been creativity. The genesis of the wheel was a synthesis of logs rolling down, a mobile phone happened because people wanted to stay connected as well as being mobile. In an era where screen time is a very important metric in a child’s life, it is important to take time out and ideate. Ideation is a culmination of problem identification, creativity, entrepreneurial spirit, quick thinking as well as leadership. Using your creativity to come up with unique solutions is rapidly becoming a lost art, which we should focus on to stay relevant in the present context.
Use your creativity well. Believe in yourself. It is the key to being yourself even after you’ve come out of the struggles of life and even the tests of time.
