"A Teacher affects eternity, he can never tell where his influence stops."
- Henry Brooks Adams.
It was Martin Luther King Jr. who said - "The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically. Intelligence plus character - that is the goal of true education".
The world we live in today is so very different from the one we were educated in. Everything around us seems to be moving at such an accelerated rate and we as educators need to pause and reflect on this system of Education.
As I walk down the hallways of the school every day, I hear the chatter of eager minds, the shouts of excitement from the class rooms, the enthusiasm of the budding athletes, the thumping feet of dancers and the sound of melodious voices singing. Their perpetual energy, movement and enthusiasm permeate the atmosphere at Seshadripuram Public School. We are a school with a difference! We value creativity and innovation and strive to constantly nurture them in our students.
To spread the Light of Knowledge and dispel the darkness of ignorance and intolerance is at the heart of everything we do at the school. We aim to impart knowledge to the students, inculcate in them - wisdom, compassion, tolerance and a humanitarian spirit. Hence we teach our children the importance of tolerance and respect towards secularism. Discipline, values and integrity are the very foundation of this school.
Besides rigorous scholastic programmes, we seek to develop and nurture the different facets of a child. The school encourages all students to participate in a variety of co-curricular activities from dance, art and drama to a variety of sports to social work to environmental conservation activities. It is important for a child to explore and find his or her strength in order to reach his true potential. We aim to nurture a child into being a self-confident individual.
As a school we think about how to engage students and hold their attention. If a lesson is to be productive, how do we make sure the students actually absorb the topic? With this constant question in our mind we continuously upgrade our teaching tools and techniques as well as our academic programmes. In a technology prevalent world today, we appeal to young minds by incorporating smart boards and other devices into the teaching-learning process.
Our mission is to continue to do what we have always done develop this school and the students with integrity and values also, to give our students the best opportunities and the best all-round education. Our vision is to produce conscientious, smart and confident citizens of India who will go out into the world and make us proud!
