Schools today are no longer mere centres of spreading literacy – if a school today encompasses a much wider horizon they are facilitators in the important process of personal growth and development of an individual as a resourceful member of the society.
Knowledge which is acquired under compulsion obtains no hold on mind. – Plato
What according to you is the importance of education – scoring high marks? Certificate acquisition? Honing the skills of rote learning to spew out the crammed information effortlessly?
Unfortunately this is the sole purpose of education being marketed by our system today. Education has to serve the means to open the mind. It has to teach us how to think rather than telling us what to think. This is what we aim to do at The St. Wilfred’s School – implant a seed of inquisitiveness, cultivate a love of learning and groom the child to become an independent thinker and a visionary leader. Effective learning involves creating and solving our own errors. I want our children to go ahead, stretch out enthusiastically to test their limitlessness, not to fear committing mistakes nor fear encountering failures, for these should be used as stepping stones to move ahead towards fulfillment of their dreams and aspirations.
Our children need to be guided to learn to think, reason, analyse and not follow blindly. Combine the learning with actions, let unavoidable errors impel them to seek greater understanding. Teachers, parents and guardians need to work together to give our children a platform from which they may learn to open their wings and soar up confidently towards success
I am very pleased to state that the St.Wilfred Education Society is promised to the entire development of a wholesome foundation for a generation which would shape the bright future of our nation in the years to come.
“Build your schools around concepts, not only academic subjects but core concepts such as awareness, honest, genuine and dedicated. First of all be honest and genuine with yourself because you can deceive everyone but not yourself. If you fall in your own eyes you can never get the respect of the others in order to fulfill your aims you have to ogranis yourself, lead a disciplined life, form a good character and rest follows”.
One more academic year of St. Wilfred’s School has been successfully rounded off and another batch is out to face the battle of life. It has been both eventful and challenging year for the school. We targeted high goals for ourselves and endeavored to achieve them persistently.
Every school activity was undertaken by us with great zeal and enthusiasm.
The year taught us to accept the moments of success, and those of failure with indomitable spirit for we have grown more intelligent with each of our failures and humble with every success.
No one in the world is born genius. The greatest thinkers in history like Newton, Shakespeare, Lincoln and Gandhi achieved something in life not by sheer luck or by the lighting flash of inspiration, but by constant toil. In fact, work is the beginning the middle and the end of success. It is the work that lifts most men above the crowd. What turns the ordinary into extra-ordinary is the extra we put into it. The climb to the top is walk up, never a walkover. There one no lifts and escalators in the world of success. So start now, never say tomorrow instead do today’s work today. Awake, arise and act. It is aptly said:-
“If you can run a losing race without blaming your loss on someone else. You have bright prospects of success further down the road in life.
I would like to conclude by saying that keep moving ahead a few steps every day and soon you will be able to develop an attractive personality.
“Build it well, whatever you do.
Build straight, strong and true.
Build it clean and high and broad.
Build it for the eyes of God.
