As the very proud Principal of this NAAC accredited A grade college with a well-respected history of providing educational opportunities for the students since 1965, I warmly welcome you all
Education plays a key role in the overall development of the society. The role of education is definitely not limited to giving and grasping knowledge and theory. The genuine objective of education is much beyond just awarding degrees to the students.
I believe that having quality, inspirational and passionate teachers is essential to a school's success. To borrow John Hattie's words; "teachers should build classroom climates where errors are welcome, student engagement is the norm, questioning is high and students gain reputations as effective learners."
I am an avid enthusiastforreal, effective and innovative professional development that encourages teachers and administrators of the college to be reflective and to continuously examine our practices to provide quality teaching and learning for each student. My role as Principal is to keep up with latest trends and research and be an active partner in the development.
We understand the challenges faced by the students, parents and the teachers to cater to the academic needs during closure of school and adapting to virtual learning. However the importance of education remains consistent. We need to be prepared to take life ahead with all our normal activities according to the new normal. Though disturbed, we don’t want to miss this academic year for our students. Our talented and dedicated staff, both teaching and non teaching, have been showing their care and concern for the students working from home preparing notes and engaging classes online for the benefit of students. I appreciate their concern for the students and commitment to academics. All these will also lead to imbibing of digital skills, one of the most important literacy skills of the 21st century.
We believe that this is the time to not just deal with the current emergency, but also build foundations of resilience to face such difficult events in the future. Let us consider this challenge as an opportunity. The COVID 19 Pandemic should not lockdown the aspiration of our young generation. My suggestion is that they should take the lead and work with teachers to develop new e- learning content. Students should remain active and receptive and use the extended lockdown to learn new skills.
We pray for a quick control of the COVID 19 Pandemic, for a healing of those affected, their families and health care personals. Remember humanity has seen worse, and every time we have bounced back. We will, again. Being hopeful is the key.
Take care. Stay safe.
