Education is not all about studying and getting good marks. Rather it is a means to discover new things and acquire knowledge to differentiate between right and wrong, or good and evil. It is training of one’s mind to think and act rightly; thereby forming one’s character with right attitudes. So a truly educated person
acquires knowledge not for knowledge sake but for the formation of his character and for the betterment of humanity.
Therefore, I wish that our educational institutions do not merely concentrate on imparting information but also
encouraging and inculcating in the young minds the basic human values to build a good and harmonious society.
I wish that the way teachers handle their students should inspire the young minds to learn the lessons not merely
for the sake of acquiring highest marks but also for forming and moulding their characters in such a way that the knowledge
that they have obtained during this learning process is used for the service of humanity without any discrimination on the
basis of caste, creed or class. Our teaching methodology must enable the students to think and reason independently and critically
for a better change. I am confident we can bring positive change if we approach education with the right attitude,
because “education is the most powerful weapon that can change the world” (Nelson Mandela).
I am hopeful that with the cooperation and the support of all the stakeholders of our Little
Flower Convent School we will bring positive change in the young minds, and who in turn would positively influence the society and the nation.
Wishing you all God’s Blessing!
