Education is about awakening -Awakening to the power and beauty that lies within all of us. The aim of a school is not only academic excellence but also to motivate and empower its students to be lifelong learners, critical thinkers, and productive members of an ever-changing global society. Every parent wants the best for the child. Holistic growth is possible only when the school and parents join hands in nurturing the child with knowledge and values. Every child is potentially divine and all we need to do is to kindle that divinity within them. As Gurudev Swami Chinmayananda ji says " Children are not vessels to be filled but lamps to be lit". Let us allow children to shine like lamps by providing them the best learning environment filled with opportunities to explore new horizons. Children of today must not only be infused with values so that they realize their roots but must also be provided with wings of wonder and curiosity to invent and innovate. Education is said to be an art of man making and Chinmaya vidyalaya strives to mould the young mind to think, express and redefine boundaries thereby contributing effectively to the society. So dear students, never shun opportunities, use them judiciously and strive on tirelessly, hurdling all obstacles, keeping the motto of the Vidyalaya "Keep Smiling" alive.
