Message from the Chairman

"If I had mychild 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. VivekanandSr. Sec. School, Ladpur, strongly believe that the entire object of qualityeducation is not to instruct but to inspire; not to merely learn but to acquireknowledge; not to limit thought but to expand the frontiers of the mind; andmost importantly not only to do the right things but also enjoy doing it.Education does not mean providing answers. It means equipping the pupil withthe means to find the answers for himself and within himself. Educationempowers students to discover themselves- who they are as people. Within each studentis a doctor, an engineer, a teacher, a social activist, a sportsperson, anenvironmentalist, a poet, an author or an economist. It is my conviction thateach child’s inner beauty and energy needs to be unraveled to enable him toscale his optimum creative heights. Children growing with self esteem andconfidence will be truly liberated to build a harmonious world. They will bethinkers, creators and path breakers. They will be empowered happy individualswho respect and celebrate diversity and reach out with compassion, creativityand courage to usher peace and progress by integrating technology and traditionin a harmonious confluence of self, society and nation.

Each Vivekerian is a buddingstar fully equipped to touch the infinite sky, spreading light everywhereshowing that he is a winner in life.
