Message from Principal
“The real essence of Education lies in moulding our children to be confident and strong citizens!”
When our goals are so high and the vision so strong it becomes our duty to deliver nothing but the best without compromising with the quality and the standards. Here my efforts as a head of the institution becomes more grueling and we at East strive towards the excellence with a single motto of shaping glocal learners. Today I would like to share with you my feelings and share my experience about the requirement of child’s development so as to enable him/her stand out amongst the rest. Learning is a two-way process. Here parents too play an important and an equal role in educating the child. In modern times the term Education is not limited into mere bookish knowledge and getting grades; it engulfs a vast area with important factors as developing self-confidence, making your child socially secure, make him/her emotionally strong, problem solving etc. For the same we can use following keys:
MAKE YOUR CHILD EMOTIONALLY STRONG:
Be a patient listener. Help your child come to you for any of his/her turbulences. Make them understand that there is a solution to every problem and they will have to face different situations which might be sometimes unfavourable but they will have to overcome all the hurdles with a winning stroke of confidence.
BE THE STRENGTH:
The education can benefit the child only if he is adaptive to various changes as well as experiences in his/her life. Be friend to your child. Let your child discover a friend, philosopher and a guide in you. Making this happen he will consider you to be his strength. Make them realize and know that for every and any problem they have this door always open and welcoming with love.
EACH CHILD IS UNIQUE:
Every child is different and unique; blessed with immense potential, curiosity and creativity blended with lots of learning attitude. Respect their individuality. Give them exposure to the fullest. Let them discover their own world; make their own choices and face their own challenges. Just be there as a support pillar.
The more you learn and the more you know the well you can experience. Things come up by doing. Provide them with exposure by encouraging him to participate in school activities, go on tours and excursions, attend social gathering etc. Make him an extrovert child. Extrovert children openly express themselves hence they will never harm themselves or others whereas introvert child does not mix with others and hence does not express. He may feel suffocated within and might harm himself.
SOCIAL MEDIA AWARENESS:
In the ever changing and fast pace techno world the access to the internet and social media sites has become easy. It is now easily available at the touch of your finger. Many children get affected by the social networking sites and various posts on it. It becomes of great importance to make your child aware about the advantages and disadvantages of social networking sites and apps.
Today, the role of a school is not limited to pursue academic excellence but also to motivate and empower its students to be lifelong learners, critical thinkers, and productive members of a dynamic global society. We firmly believe to provide an atmosphere to our students for multifaceted development, where children are encouraged to channelize their potential in the pursuit of excellence.
The school is striving hard to make the best possible efforts to inculcate strong values. Along with academics and co-curricular activities, it is equally important that a child should be well mannered in terms of behavior and etiquette. School has a vital role to play in developing a child into a well-balanced personality. Such a person, who respects for environment, is sensitive towards the social responsibility, is sensitive in using the resources and above all he/she becomes a fighter who takes every challenge of life in a well spirited way. School should groom the child to stay socially relevant and a person who becomes capable to contribute to society at large. Child should not remain a part of rat race that competes to get marks but should evolve into a person who seeks the path of excellence, knowledge and performance.
These few steps will surely help our children to emerge as strong individuals and thus with this we ‘The School’ and ‘The Parents’; will be able to educate children in real sense. I hope that we all will surely work on this and will satisfy the real goal of education – The Holistic Development of our Child!
