Looking back, I realize that nurturing curiosity and the instinct to seek solutions are perhaps the most important contributions education can make. – Paul Berg
Curiosity is something that we all humans are born with. It is a drive that motivates us to lead our life. It is an inquisitiveness that initiates the process of being a lifelong learner. Whether it is a child or an adult it gives scope to everyone. Everyone is a born learner, only the way to explore the hidden facts of this world & its existence differs. In short we can say that it is an enthusiasm to explore, discover and figure things out. Paul Berg has very beautifully quoted the nurturing of curiosity and instinct to seek solution and its importance in education. Before understanding this quote it is significant to understand the actual meaning of education.
Many a times education and literacy are overlapped i.e. they are synonymously used by many of us, which needs to be rectified. Education is an enlightening Experience. Any experience that has a formative effect on the way one thinks, feels, or acts may be considered educational. Literacy mainly revolves around acquiring the ability to read and write whereas education is about overall development of a person making it a complete human who not only read or write but also has the ability to think in broader terms and examine the things rationally. Literacy and education are termed as same thing but literacy has got indirect relation with education. Literacy is about acquiring the skills and learning, while education is about applying these skills and learning for benefit of other people, society or country. Every literate person cannot be called an educated person. Education is a much broader concept than literacy. The learning received while becoming a literate can be forgotten but education lives when even the learning 0= is forgotten. Literacy might make people feel superior to others, but only educated people are superior who know how to respect others and pay due importance to their colleagues work. Literate people working at higher positions and misusing their positions and degrading others are the biggest example of uneducated people.The people who can read and write, but use abusive and foul language are literate but definitely not educated.
We are here to educate our young explorers. In this process of education they will surely acquire specific skills. We can’t make kids educated forcefully. The desire to learn needs to be aroused. The desire will arouse only when the kids will have a strong curiosity. Being parent or educators developing curiosity should be our prime purpose not compelling kids to study. Curiosity makes mind active, observant of new ideas and brings excitement in life.Children learn more and remember it for a longer period of time when they are charged with curiosity.They start seeking solution for their queries on their own this develops the instinct to seek solution. Children are not blank slates or lumps of clay.They come with talents and driven, with strengths and weaknesses. Our job is to help them to finely tune their qualities, to give them focus, to assist them in making their strengths and channel their weaknesses in a positive direction. Hence, we try our best to chalk out the activities in the interest of our children be it in curricular or co-curricular activities. In providing them ample of activities, we help the child in choosing from varied options that suits him/her the best. This way they can discover their true potential and push themselves to achieve exceptional levels.
As parents, your most important responsibility is to recognize their strengths and help them use these strengths in the right spirit as the little ignorance towards their interests and strengths may lead them to the destructive path.To see your child perform well in every field, be it academics, music or sports we have to give them the gift of confidence first. Confidence is a gift because parents can do best in building confidence in children. It should be taught to them that topping only in class tests and end-term exams does not bring pride but honing other skills can also fetch good results. You need to be sensitive enough to identify their potential and act as a guiding light for them.
We believe that there is a star in every child hence for us everyone counts. Let us nurture this wonderful gift of God and join our hands to bring out the best in every juvenile.
Education is not the learning of facts, but the training of the mind to think. – Albert Einstein
Essentially, what food is for our body, education is to our mind. A mother serves her child the required food exactly in the manner the child prefers to have. So also, education is needed in the same form to our kids. At Datta Meghe World Academy, it’s not only our belief but a practice too to give the children that education which is most suited to them and best accepted by them. Every child is different. Every child is unique. Every child is special. Every child is gifted. Every child has got some or the other innate ability which distinguishes him/ her from that of the others. At our school, each and every child is accepted with smile and open arms. Every individual child is elegantly carved and crafted based on his/ her needs and abilities. In fact, we mend our ways and styles considering the requirements of the students and demand of the present generation keeping in mind the future of our children.
A wide range of teaching-learning activities having a balanced blend of the best of the contemporary ways to the most recent and innovative methods are incorporated in the Pre Primary section of Datta Meghe World Academy. A number of games and activities are conducted in order to arouse the various senses and enable the child to understand the concepts forever. In this manner, we are also able to identify their typical learning styles and thinking styles which establishes his/ her approach to education in future.
As rightly quoted by James Beatle,”The aim of education should be teaching us how to think rather than what to think.“We at Datta Meghe World Academy prepare the tiny tots of tender age to develop and nurture their thinking skills. The children at this age have creative ideas, innovative thoughts and an inquisitive mind full of inquiry. We help them explore their thoughts and ideas in a very cohesive and congenial environment.
Through this maiden edition of our very own school magazine, I wish to express my wholehearted gratitude towards the school management for giving us what is actually required to fulfill the vision of our institution of nurturing and building future of India. At the same time, I would like to thank the parents for their continuous support and encouragement in all our endeavors, allowing us to take their children to greater heights of success. It is, and will always be our earnest endeavor to see our children as our future of tomorrow and build a strong nation.
As the famous quote says, “Learning is a treasure that follows its owner everywhere.”
Vision without action is merely a dream. Action without vision just passes the time. Vision with action can change the world.
Being the Trustee of Datta Meghe World Academy, it has been a great and overwhelming experience for me.The experience of taking decisions in business and taking decisions in education is poles apart.
I have been experiencing a different but a wonderful, enriching experience, understanding the culture of the education sector with variety of dimensions to deal and solve the problems faced in the field of education. The saying that ‘learning never ends, it has no age bar’ stands true to all of us. One should be ready to explore and dive into the vast ocean of learning. I would like to say that here is an industry wherein we have the raw and tender buds expected to be blossomed and moulded into the future leaders of tomorrow. And I assure you that this is what our institution has set its sights on, fuelled and propelled by our institutions’ mission and vision. We articulate this clearly and forcefully with a firm and determined conviction and this is our barometer to excellence.
Every day we witness the growth and development taking place in our students at various stages right from the Tiny Tots of Pre Primary to the teenagers and adolescents. Here each and every employee moves in the same direction to achieve excellence for a common goal. The achievements of our School in a time span of less than 4 years stand as testimony to our efforts. The inception of the educational institute was with students in the year 2011 — 2012 and now we have almost 1200 students seeking quality education in our premises. We have worked hard from time to time by not only enhancing and upgrading our skills but also changing with the times. Our Complex is a pride in itself with the techno savvy classrooms and state of the art infrastructure. We are now in the process of designing and developing our Play Ground to meet up the global standards of Sports.
I am immensely happy to see the growth of my educational institution in the varied dimensions of academics, co- curricular, literary, arts and sports with lot many new ventures coming into play day by day. The release of the Maiden Edition of our school magazine SPARK will surely create a landmark achievement for Datta Meghe World Academy. I am indeed delighted to say that our magazine will be showcasing what we are at present and what we up to. t’s our mission to bring students closer to their ambitions and guide them with modern and contemporary education and conducive learning facilities. With the vision to Nurture and Build Future of India, we strive to provide the best of education while developing global perspectives for our future leaders.
The journey here has just started and there are miles to go…
We are the warriors of yesterday, abettors of today and successors of tomorrow who want to create our niche in the realm of education. We dream big and do big and want to widen the dimensions of our vision. The core reason behind this is to create a tight bonding between the youth and the community and to give back to the society manifolds.
I would like to conclude with this quote:
Excellence is not a destination; it is a continuous journey that never ends.
It’s the way you mould the artifact that determines its value in the future.
It’s the way you mould the artifact that determines its value in the future.
