There is nothing pure than knowledge in this world and it can be gained only by imparting it to others. Today, the role of a school is not only to pursue academic excellence but also to motivate and empower its students to be lifelong learners, critical thinkers, and productive members of an ever-changing global society. This can only be possible in a holistic, student-centric environment. The talents, skills and abilities of each student need to be identified, nurtured, and encouraged so that he/she is able to reach greater heights. Students need to be provided with a platform to think, express, and exhibit their skills. It is necessary to empower them to negotiate several issues that confront them with the teacher being a facilitator.
A good educational system is one that helps a child to nurture his/her talents and overcome shortcomings by providing appropriate, all-encompassing education.
Albert Einstein said that “The important thing is not to stop questioning.” Hence, the purpose of the education received by our children is to replace an empty mind with an open one. We encourage each child to develop in their special field of interest so as to best showcase their particular type of talent. In the words of John Dewey, “Education is not preparation for life; education is life itself.”
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 the children is based on the positive reinforcement of good work and good behavior.
Most of our students secured an aggregate 60% and above, with the majority securing an aggregate of 85% and above. I am extremely proud of our achievement, and I am grateful for all the hard work invested by our teachers and students.
It is through the ceaseless dedication and commitment of many people that the Gagan Public School has succeeded in realizing so many of its goals. I would like thank to our Founder, Mr. S.C.Sharma for his invaluable support and guidance, and all the members of the Gagan Family, for helping us in all our endeavors. I would also like to extend my gratitude toward our Directress, Mrs. S. B. Sharma. I would also like to thank the parents of our students for always having bestowed their faith and confidence in us.
I would like to end with the words of Albert Einstein, who once said, “Imagination is more important than knowledge. For while knowledge defines all we currently know and understand, imagination points to all us might yet discover and create”
