Principal’s Message – MRIS Ludhiana
“From cradle to grave; this problem of running order through chaos, direction through space, discipline through freedom, unity through multiplicity, has always been, and must always be, the task of education.”
– Henry Brooks Adams.
Explosion of information coupled with breathtaking advances in technology and globalization of markets have thrown open opportunities for growth and prosperity for the whole society. Having said this, the question that has constantly motivated me in my pursuit towards excellence as an educator for the last few decades is: “Does our educational system equip today’s students adequately with the necessary skills to take advantage of the immense opportunity and also deal with the accompanying challenges with confidence?”
I am aware that the ‘winners’ or ‘thrivers’of the 21st century will be those who possess strong analytical skills, a knack for foresight as problem seekers, adequate creativity and most necessarily good people skills that make them humane in their thoughts and action.
Here at Manav Rachna International School, Ludhiana magic is wrought on daily basis where recalcitrant young minds are inexplicably converted into young,courteous, caring humans. Where two left feet suddenly move in perfect unison to face the difficulties gracefully on the stage of life and where frightful foghorns astoundingly transform into mellifluous melodies! Where words in struggling young mind are moulded shaping them into majestic eagles ready to soar into the ether on wings of compassion and grace.
The school is thus a microcosm of the real world, committed to preparing life-long learners to tackle the challenges of tomorrow. Our deliberate focus is on encouraging students to have a moral compass: to have a sensibility greater than themselves and to have a philanthropic spirit. We believe that our students should be committed to making a better world by taking proactive measures and it is everyone`s individual and collective responsibility to be a good citizen and a good human being. I believe the single most important idea for revolutionizing education concerns a change in thought. It is to shift the focus from one of making a system that teaches children a curriculum more efficiently to one of making the system more effective by inspiring lifelong learning in students that empowers them to have full and productive lives in a rapidly shifting economy.In order to match this need and keep abreast with the changing trends in education across the world, we at MRIS constantly look for ways to make learning interesting for all. It is proven that a student’s interest can be directly correlated with achievement.
I firmly believe in the unique potential of every child. All children possess something invaluable and their innate talents are waiting to be unleashed. There is a leader within every child who has something worthy and significant to contribute. My personal and professional goal is to motivate each student to learn and follow their passion, as whatever is learned through motivation of passion remains a permanent learning experience.
We consider Parents to be our co-partners in our endeavour to impart good quality education. We encourage participation, feedback and the reinforcement of all the practices at school.If we work together mountains can be moved and momentous miracles are possible. I want to assure you that we are together in this noble task of bringing up global citizens and partners in ensuring the success of every child’s education and well-being. I am sure our vision of students emerging as fine contributing citizens of tomorrow would materialize with your cooperation and support.
The portals of Manav Rachna International School are the vehicles that make this vision a reality.Our system of education advocates the philosophy that education should lead to well-formed minds rather than just well filled minds. My interest would be to soar ahead and create educational facilities with a cutting-edge technology that adequately address the current and future needs of our students.
