I would like to welcome you all to this Temple of Learning by quoting the above Sanskrit Shloka which states “The eldest is respected in his home, the aldermen in his village, a king in his own country but A LEARNED IS HONORED EVERYWHERE IN THE WORLD”. Education is not about earning graduate certificates or degrees but it is about Discovering Oneself in the Journey of Learning and Sharing.
As the CEO of Delhi World Public School, Siliguri I would like to introduce a unique concept of 3Ps which I formulated and promote, i.e., “PHILOSOPHY, POLICY AND PRACTICE” amongst all students and individuals. Education is going through a revolution in today’s time, we see changes in mentalities of stakeholders but always what is sought for is Quality Education. Here at DWPS we firmly believe in promoting the 3Ps in our children which sets as foundation for one’s Creativity and Innovation. This School shall in a true sense give it’s best to impart Holistic Education as you will see a beautiful blend of Senior and Young people driving this organization further as YOUTH IS THE FUTURE FOR ANY NATION.
As a Residential cum Day Boarding School, we give our best to create “WELL FORMED MINDS” rather than just “WELL FILLED MINDS”. “Listening, Speaking, Reading and Writing” are the four stages of Learning, but unfortunately today’s Curriculum begins with Reading and Writing, treating Listening and Speaking as to be learnt by default. Our unique Curriculum at DWPS not only imparts all-round education built on a foundation of Service, Adventure, Sports, Creative Arts and Academics but even inculcates the Gurukul System that is having classes under the tree, amidst nature which has been in the heart of the Indian Education System. Our focus is also to train Children to be Good Listeners and Speakers.
“Think Globally but Act Locally”, is what synergizes Indian and Best Educational Practices Around the World. As a researcher, I always feel School is the best sample for Research as we find diversities in every parameter which makes Learning and Sharing so beautiful, hence our focus shall also be to encourage children in Analytical Thinking using “HEUTAGOGICAL APPROACH” from the Primary to Senior Secondary.
Hence, I assure you that we may not be the BEST but shall DEFINITELY GIVE AND DO OUR BEST. Wishing you all the very best, I would end with Alvin Toffler’s quote:
“THE ILLITERATE OF THE 21st CENTURY WILL NOT BE THOSE WHO CANNOT READ AND WRITE BUT THOSE WHO CANNOT LEARN, UNLEARN AND RE-LEARN”.
