Educational institutions, like Arya Vidya Mandir, probably has the most powerful influence in the shaping of the overall personality development of a child, an influence that in fact, will define the personality of the nation and its successes and achievements. It is therefore imperative that we focus, not just on education and extra-curricular activities but go beyond to shape norms, values, principles and culture in the upbringing of the child.
India is a country of very rich heritage, tradition and culture. Influence of the culture from the west has, over the last 2 to 3 hundred years, eroded the fabric of Indian culture in a significant way. What we believe in AVM is that we need to preserve and promote these basic Indian values in our educational system. This is clearly reflected in all our activities, be it the practice of Havan that we follow or the importance of family and celebration of the Grand-parents day.
At the same time, we live in a modern society that imposes several demands on the new generation of children. This requires us to follow a curriculum that caters to the all-around development of the child, one that will make them, not just Indian citizens but Global leaders of the future, leaders who are ready to take on challenges, resolve issues, show empathy and understanding in the diversity that India and the world presents to them.
In the complex world today, we need to create Leaders of the future who have a clear vision and can influence and transform society. The focus therefore is to empower children, delegate responsibility and encourage them to think and be creative and innovative to effectively address issues and problems that they come across. The most powerful tool of any successful leader is the power of communication. A lot of emphasis is laid in AVM on developing this skill in children from an early age.
We live in a time and world which is rapidly changing, changing in terms of values, relationships, technology to name a few. We, at AVM, are constantly alert to this metamorphosis and seek to constantly change the content and the methodology of teaching to adapt to this ever changing scenario. It is not my endeavor here to list all the new initiatives that we at AVM have incorporated in the last few years. Suffice it to say, we are confident that we build citizens and leaders of tomorrow who will take this Nation to ever greater heights in future
All the best,
Director and Principal
