TOGETHER WE CAN…
Young age is the time when it is easy to learn and advance in life. All hidden talents of an individual need space to get explored. With right mix of mentoring,counselling,and practice there is no reason that the talent of a young individual can not be shaped.
We are in a society very different from the one we grew up in,the one we were educated in. The world today is changing at an accelerated rate and as educators we have to catch up with the pace. We must pause,ponder,and check ourselves:is our youth equipped to take on the challenges of the future? Are we preparing them forthe future? More and more children are growing up surrounded by technology but bereft of affection, security and bonds of true love and care. Our youth is increasingly becoming comfortable with the violence and destruction. Not to mention that social media is an added evil in the list of technology challenges.
Aristotle once said,“Educating the mind without educating the heart is noeducation at all.” In the process of this technological advancement,we have lost the human connect which is very essential for any society to grow. We at Vidyashram while marching ahead with the use of technology,lay emphasis on the values and principles which can lay sound foundation for the future by making the youth realize the importance of ethics and values. We endeavour to help them grow and develop into sensitive and responsible citizens of the next generation.
