Message from the Chairman

"If I had my child to raise all over again,
I’d build self-esteem first, and the house later.
I’d finger paint more, and point the finger less.
I would do less correcting and more connecting.
I’d take my eyes off my watch, and watch with my eyes.
I would care to know less and know to care more.
I’d take more hikes and fly more kites.
I’d stop playing serious, and seriously play.
I would run through more fields and gaze at more stars.
I’d see the oak tree in the acorn more often.
I would be firm less often, and affirm much more.
I’d teach less about the love of power."

Khalil Gibran

We at St. Vivekanand Sr. Sec. School, Ladpur, strongly believe that theentire object of quality education is not to instruct but to inspire; not tomerely learn but to acquire knowledge; not to limit thought but to expand thefrontiers of the mind; and most importantly not only to do the right things butalso enjoy doing it. Education does not mean providing answers. It meansequipping the pupil with the means to find the answers for himself and withinhimself. Education empowers students to discover themselves- who they are aspeople. Within each student is a doctor, an engineer, a teacher, a socialactivist, a sportsperson, an environmentalist, a poet, an author or aneconomist. It is my conviction that each child’s inner beauty and energy needsto be unraveled to enable him to scale his optimum creative heights. Childrengrowing with self esteem and confidence will be truly liberated to build aharmonious world. They will be thinkers, creators and path breakers. They willbe empowered happy individuals who respect and celebrate diversity and reachout with compassion, creativity and courage to usher peace and progress byintegrating technology and tradition in a harmonious confluence of self,society and nation.

Each Vivekerian is a budding star fully equipped to touch the infinitesky, spreading light everywhere showing that he is a winner in life.
