The Principal Speaks

The illiterate of the 21st Century will not be those who can not read and write, but those who can not learn, unlearn and relearn.

Central Public School is no longer a school on the fringes but rather an institution that is opening out new prospective, and I take immense pride to be part of it. The first education is to know our real spiritual purpose, to know that we are souls in bodies. What we call education today is largely a development of the intellect, not the heart.

Ancient Vedic systems of education developed the heart and the mind in its totality with its understanding. Well, the development of the mind can be possible through classroom teaching and it is so nice being done that there is no doubt about that. What we lack today is the development of the heart and consequently, there is a feeling of insecurity, alienation and social unrest. In my opinion, education to the heart can be imparted through sharing together, suffering together, praying together and working together. The human values like empathy, honesty, truthfulness, responsibility, good work habits and behavior, gentleness, etc.

The human values like empathy, honesty, truthfulness, responsibility, good work habits and behavior, gentleness, etc. can be inculcated not by teaching only but by setting ourselves as the examples before them. We must remember that any education is incomplete without incorporating ethical and moral values. Finally, loe, affection, dedication, and commitment can bring a tremendous change by bridging the gap between the teacher and the taught.
