Message from the Head of the School
In today’s technology-driven age, the frontiers of knowledge are expanding at a phenomenal pace and “a new page of history is being written before yesterday’s ink is even dry ……”.
Our challenge, as Duane Elgin aptly puts it, is to recognize that “we are the first generation of global citizens. The choices we make will establish an overall thrust to living, with which humanity will live for generations”.
A comprehensive analysis in this context is contained in the Delor’s Report to UNESCO entitled “Learning-the Treasure Within. It is essential that all people with a sense of responsibility turn their attention to both the aims and means of education”. In confronting “the many challenges that the future holds in store, humankind sees in education an indispensable asset in its attempt to attain the ideals of peace, freedom and social justice”.
Knowledge is power and it commands a premium. Let the school be our window to the future.
