Sanskriti - The school
It is always a pleasure to be able to address young minds. Children are our tomorrow - our future. Bright faces that I see here today receiving prizes and evincing their talents will be the citizens of tomorrow.
They may tomorrow grow up to be Einsteins, Rabindra Naths, Gandhis, Abdul Kalams, Kishore Kumars or they might just turn out to be a burden on the society, stragglers in the race of life, waiting for someone to give them a job. What our children are going to be in future is what we make of them today. There are so many instances I have seen where parents are so concerned about the future of the child that they actually forget the main purpose of education in the rat race of making their child the best. Give a man a ﬁsh you will feed him for a day; teach a man to ﬁsh and you feed him for a lifetime.
Sanskriti The School has always been about inspiring students. All year through the entire school team continues to put efforts towards quality education in every aspect. We set standards and goals for ourselves and strive to achieve them — be it in the area of academics, sports, events, discipline, leadership, management systems and more.
Today I would like to talk about Inspiration. There was a scientist from NASA Mr. Edward Rogers whom I was lucky to have an interaction with a month ago. He asked me a single question.
“Vikranth, do you think it is required for India to spend so much money to send an orbiter craft to mars and eventually maybe ﬁnd water? Where people are dying without water down here?”
His words kept ringing in my ear for a few minutes. But later I knew the answer. These things are necessary because they inspire us to dream big and achieve more. Things like a world cup win in cricket, Rakesh Sharma's travel to space, test ﬁring of an Agni missile all inspire people. In the same way we have to concentrate on inspiring the kids. Look at it this way. If you look too closely in the mirror, you can't really see yourself—it's just blur. But when you get farther away, you actually see yourself more clearly. Do the same thing with your child.
Sometimes we're just so close, so enmeshed, that we just can‘t see them as an individual. But if you can stand back far enough, you can actually see your child as an individual with his own distinctive features and then you'll be able to help him understand himself as well. When you step back and observe, you‘ll know what works for him, why he‘s reaching for certain things and what really gets him moving.
There will be things he's never going to be motivated to do but it is still required for them to do. He may hate doing his chores and try to get out of it, and that's when you give him consequences. The goal is to influence your child when he has to do something he doesn‘t want to do, and get to know him well enough to ﬁgure out what his own desires might be. As a parent, you should help him identify his strengths and work towards helping him reach his goals.
Our responsibility is to help our kids do that, not to do it for them. We need to stay out of their way enough so they can ﬁgure out who they are, what they think and where their own interests lie. The talents they demonstrate here are the proof that they have the potential to be useful citizens of the future.
It gives me immense pleasure to be a part of the progressive change in the short span of time in the School.
There is a developmental change in the curriculum to keep pace with the developments that are taking place in the education system. Now the concept of Education has expanded to include social development. We strive to mould the students to address the changing needs of our society and to instill in them the aspiration to become worthy. Children in our school are made to undertake activities that expose them to the environment and it helps them to visualize India of their dreams. The peace and harmony in one‘s personal life is a great asset to a child. Parents are the powerful models of children.
Parenting is as much about your growth and evolution as it is your child's.
My school helped me recognize my hidden talent and encouraged me to enhance my skills. This school taught me that learning can be in many ways and always encouraged me to explore.
My school gave me the opportunity to excel in domain of my interest. At school we were given an opportunity to use the latest technology in education, via smart classes, which helped me widen the horizons of my knowledge.
