“Education is not learning of facts but the training of the mind to think”- Albert Einstein
A School is always a ‘World in miniature’ where one receives a ‘training for life’, where effective, meaningful and joyful learning takes place. It is here that we begin to learn our lessons of life-to accept challenges, face competition, defeat & failure, and rejoice at victory and triumph. We are committed to traditional Indian values and culture for children to keep a connect with their identity, but we also recognize the need for a global perspective in life.
At SAMITHI ENGLISH MEDIUM SCHOOL it is our aim not only to pursue academic excellence but also to motivate our students to be lifelong learners, critical thinkers and productive members of an ever-changing global society. We try to provide our students with an atmosphere for multifaceted development, where children are encouraged to channelize their potential in the pursuit of excellence. We aim to nurture the talents, skills, and abilities of each student and provide them to negotiate several issues that confront them, with the educator being a facilitator. Our approach to learning is child-centric, encouraging activity-based learning and inculcating a scientific temper and a spirit of free enquiry. In our curriculum, the student is the primary focus, and each child is involved in the learning process .We motivate our educators to provide an atmosphere for discovery, where students are encouraged to be creative and curious, instead of only loading the children with academic burden.
While academic excellence is our major thrust, the school is also devoted to prepare our students for life, prepare them to face the challenges of tomorrow, and encourage them to be socially relevant. We encourage each child to develop in their special field of interest so as to best showcase their particular type of talent and grow to their full potential, and constantly groom them to pass out as men and women competent to bear responsibility in all walks of life. Our school aim to develop a good sense of discipline and moral values within the ever-changing social norms of society. Children these days are much more sensitive: they possess very high self-esteem and believe in independent thinking. Therefore, we ensure that the approach to motivating and getting the best out of children is based on the positive reinforcement of good work and good behaviour. Our educational philosophy is centred on praise, encouragement, enthusiasm and affection, rather than criticism, fear and punishment.
Our vision is to work in partnership with our pupils, parents, and the community at large to create a positive and inclusive environment for high quality learning and teaching where everyone is valued and respected. Education is learning, not only how to succeed in life and make money or hold positions, but also, how to fail and stand up again. Education is also having the courage and strength to walk on the path of truth, humility and hard work which I am trying to follow.
