“You can’t cross the sea merely by standing and staring at the water. “ – Rabindranath Tagore
At Vikas Vidyalaya, Ranchi the morning begins with this philosophy of Gurudev Rabindranath Tagore. Here students are encouraged and prepared to participate fully, to take risks, to be self-advocates, and to create lasting memories and relationships with their peers and staff.
At Vikas Vidyalaya learning is a celebration, I am proud to be the Principal of Vikas Vidyalaya which has nurturing educators, caring staff and wonderful students who are very important part of the “Vikas Family.”
To quote Socrates, “I cannot teach anybody anything, I can only make them think,” If we think, if we make up our mind and stay decided, success is sure to come. As said, the past is history, the future is a mystery. The present is a present. So we must fully utilize the gift (present) and aim high in life to become the best. It is very important that we know what we want in life. If we do not know what we want, the question of getting it does not arise at all.
We must, therefore, have a goal and “Forge Ahead” to realize it. The waves forge ahead to touch the shore, The rains forge ahead to reach the land, the birds to fly in the sky, We forge ahead to empower women, through educating all. We forge ahead to build a strong character by blending culture and modernity, for peace and a purposeful life. We forge ahead to create an ambiance contributing to a healthy education that nurtures a positive outlook that is morally becoming of a global citizen with Indian values.
The aim of education is the knowledge, not of facts, but of values. We endeavor towards a value based learning environment where the children are determined to follow good and avoid evil. Our 21st century learners need perfect blend of technology with our traditions and culture. Therefore, at Vikas we use latest technology without compromising upon our traditions and culture.
We also take care of attitudes, competencies and skills and the FOCUS is placed in making the students ambitious holistic individuals with sound character and well groomed personality – striving for EXCELLENCE in all spheres of life.
“Together we can face any challenges as deep as the ocean and as high as the sky.”
With Best Wishes!
