Our city, state and country in 2017, after 70 years of independence has
progressed rapidly in all spheres of life which includes education.
The word 'Education' has evolved far beyond the basic definition of
'systematic instruction, development of character or mental powers'.
My definition of 'Today's Education' is development and polishing the
inherent faculties of sight, hearing, understanding and speech in a child.
We need to put up the child to observe in detail, listen with full attention,
comprehend and assimilate and speak with clarity and openness of his/her
In today's world children can easily pick-up audio and visual messages from public places, at
home on the Radio, TV and Newspapers which are beyond their age and comprehension, which
leaves the school with the difficult task of shaping students to receive the right amount of
knowledge, skill and attitude building relevant to their age and level of comprehension. This
seamless progress of sharing and dispensing of curriculum over the schooling years prepares the
passing students to face confidently and carry forward the school inputs into their college life
and later assimilate the entire spectrum of learning seamlessly into their professional and
Our teachers, at SICA, are well prepared and abreast with the latest practices to develop children
to go through the school curriculum in a lucid, simple and visible way. School is the place where
the children spend 6 to 7 hours but beyond this, the parents are the 'teachers', who should pick
up the progress at school from their wards and carry forward by putting in a disciplined exercise
of revisiting the school learning on a daily basis, thereby reinforcing the child's thought process
and instilling confidence to move forward to the next chapter. The parents need to listen and
allow children to put across their views. They should never ever impose their thinking and
expectations on the child.
Let's come together in building up our children to get rich in their skills, enlarge upon their
knowledge, confidence and attitude to meet all challenges successfully.
Wishing all the children a 'happy fun filled learning'. My special wishes to the board going
students to confidently crack the exams and bring laurels to themselves, their parents and the
Season's Greetings and Wishes for 2018 to bring new learning and perspectives in our lives.
