After gaining “Vidhya” one attains spirituality, hard work, patience, peace, empathy etc. Whereas when a person gains knowledge he/she only attains ego and overconfidence.
I believe in upholding high standards with an absolute commitment to strive to understand and improve the educational process using team strategies, while wholly centering on students achievement.
Our vision is to develop well rounded, confident and responsible individuals who aspire to achieve their full potential. We will do this by providing a welcoming, happy, safe and supportive learning environment in which everyone is equal and all achievements are celebrated. Our organization prepares students to understand, contribute to, and succeed in a rapidly changing society, thus making the world a better and more just place. We will ensure that our students develop both the skills that a sound education provides and the competencies essential for success and leadership in the emerging creative economy. We will also lead in generating practical and theoretical knowledge that enables people to better understand our world and improve conditions for local and global communities.
The purpose of education is not just t impart knowledge in a classroom and achieve academic success. Its true purpose lies in developing a child morally, culturally, creatively and productively to help himself and the society achieve a better future. It must enable him to think and learn, adapt to new challenges yet have his feet firmly grounded with reality. Education should make a student modern as well as keep him rooted in his cultural and national traditions. It’s easier said than done. At Swaminarayan English Medium School, Salvav we are trying to achieve the balance of formal and informal education, the new and the old, modernity and traditions so as to provide better citizens for the society and help them achieve a successful future.
