|Anthony J.D'Angelo once said, " Develop a
passion for learning. If you do, you'll never
cease to grow."
A school must try to provide its students with
an atmosphere for multifaceted development,
where children are encouraged to channelize
their potential in the pursuit of excellence.
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. We often make the critical
mistake of considering children, regardless of
their age, class ethnicity, or background, like
a blank notebook that is yet to be written upon.
In doing so, we often fail to realize that each
child has his/her own individuality, special
skills, and talents. Therefore, a good
educational system is one that helps a child to
nurture his/her talents and overcome
shortcomings by providing appropriate,
all-encompassing education This enables the
child to develop his/her personality and equips
the child to face the challenges of life.
|At St. Kabir Academy,
our approach to learning is
activity-based and inculcating a
scientific temper and a spirit of free
enquiry. In our curriculum, the student
is the primary focus, and each child is
involved in the learning process. The
purpose of the education received by our
children is to replace an empty mind
with an open one. We motivate our
teachers to provide an atmosphere for
discovery, where students are encouraged
to be creative and curious, instead of
routinely loading the children with
academic burden. We are thus constantly
improving our teaching methodology so
that it turns learning into a
combination of classroom study,
research, and scientific discovery.
|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
behaviour. Our educational philosophy is
centered on praise, encouragement, enthusiasm,
and affection, rather than criticism, fear, and
punishment. We constantly work to develop a
sense of discipline and good moral character,
where all students are expected to conform to
high disciplinary standards and to develop
values of tolerance, fair play, compassion,
integrity, and fortitude.
I am confident that St. Kabir Academy will
always be a beacon of light, guiding the destiny
of its students and radiating kindness and
compassion as it soars high in its pursuit of
academic excellence and in the fulfillment of
the school motto:
Its is through the ceaseless dedication and
commitment of many people that St. Kabir Academy
has succeeded in realizing so many of its goals.
