MESSAGE FROM THE PRINCIPAL
Mary Vasantha Kumari. J
St. Britto’s Academy
Greetings and Wishes! I extend my most gracious invitation to you to explore the ocean of knowledge through experiencing the joy of learning at St. Britto’s.
St. Britto’s provides a safe, gentle, invigorating and stimulating environment for the students to learn, develop and mature emotionally, intellectually, physically and socially. It assists students in meeting their fullest potential by encouraging critical thinking, supporting creativity, team building and adopting to technological advancements and improvisations in our robust quest for excellence.
“Education is for life and not merely for the examination”. Learning is a life-time progress and the school plays the most important phase in a child’s investigation of the life process. Learning is not restricted to the classroom environment consisting of smart class, text books and learning materials, but every person – whether a teacher or a friend, every space – be it in the Class room, auditorium or the playground, contributes to the experiences of the child. Students are filled with such vibrant energy that only needs to be led through proper channels.
We believe that every child is unique and hence our motive is to cater to the needs of a child as an individual in a learning environment. We entitle our students to acquire knowledge, attitudes and skills, whether distinct or in group. We believe that the ubiquitous influence of the school’s ways of imparting knowledge and spreading education will resonate not only on the student’s capabilities, but also on the advanced wellness of the society.
It was Margaret Mead who said “Children must be taught how to think, not what to think,” and to implement this line of thought, systematic activity-oriented learning opportunities are created for the students and they are granted the liberty to think in whatever way they want. Students are encouraged to be inquisitive, imaginative and innovative. This practical approach has been evolved as a result of years of strenuous research in academic and non-academic areas.
Aristotle said that, “Educating the mind without educating the heart is no education at all.” By adopting a child-centric approach, we celebrate the differences of every child’s skills and abilities and with a holistic development in mind, we encourage and ignite their minds to challenge their own capacities and limitations in all the traits of intelligence.
We hope to instil
A thirst for knowledge which goes on and grows on
Ability to question and investigate for themselves rather than just believing what is presented to them.
To explore – rather than be told – how virtuous decisions are made.
We postulate that we teach the future Scientists, Engineers and Researchers who will not only improve our quality of life but also become responsible citizens of an ethically refined society.
Come join us! Let us grow together.
