The vision for education, in the world of today, is ushered in by a dramatic technological revolution. We now live in an increasingly diverse, globalized and multi-faceted society. Education system needs to be laced with a project based curriculum for life which aims at engaging students in addressing real-world problems, issues important to humanity and answering questions that matter. The focus is towards research-driven, outcome-based active learning aided by an integrated and interdisciplinary curriculum.

At Silver Oaks School, it will be our endeavour to not only impart education, but more importantly, to build up in our students skills such as critical thinking, agility and adaptability, initiative, problem solving, curiosity and imagination, effective oral and written communication, and the intellect by which one can stand on one’s own feet.

Let us pledge to make our quest to creative excellence in education never cease.

The role of education in an individual’s life can be best described in the words of Lao Tzu, when he says, “Watch your thoughts, they become your words; watch your words, they become your actions; watch your actions, they become your habits; watch your habits, they become your character; watch your character, it becomes your destiny.” Education plays an intrinsic role at each stage of development for it sows the seeds of thoughts in the mind and grows into the tree character for the individual. The development of education has been parallel to the development of human civilization throughout the years. It evolved from the age of gurukuls and madrasas to the modern-day system of schools and still continues to expand and change with the changing needs of the society. The skill development of an individual has been a center concern for framing the education curriculum in order to chisel out potential for building a life of purpose and meaning. It helps each person to recognize their strengths and crave a niche for themselves in a field that caters to their interests and innate skill set.

Envisioning education without recognizing the role of schools is a half-baked pie, for it falls on to schools to chalk out a curriculum that aims to encompass the development of an individual holistically. Schools not only work on the outward aspects of development but also serve as a sanctum for etching morals and values on young impressionable minds. They serve as roots for the society and empower individuals to branch out into the world as global citizens with potential to bring about a positive change in the social tapestry. Schools serve as a melting pot for parents and teachers to work together to groom children. They synthesize the concept of parenting and imparting education into an established structure, so as to ensure that a child blossoms into an individual conscious to the needs of the society.

It takes a village to raise a child into an empathetic, empowered and enlightened citizen. Thus, the schools and parents with joint effort need to work towards providing quality education to the children, in order to build an inclusive society where each individual is at peace both on the outside and within.

Silver Oaks School is the inspiration and vision of every member of the family. We dedicate the school to the most pious of all relationships- that of the Teacher and the Taught, as that is the very base of a progressive institution. We place before you a dream, a school with a difference, a creation of the students, by the students and for the students.

The school should be marching ahead hand in hand towards a vision. It should be a ‘Shared Vision’ which all share-seeing the beautiful flowers playing in the garden growing into well balanced harmonious personalities so that at the time they leave their alma matter they stand confident and strong enough to face the challenges of life. They find that they have been trained in such a way that they are not merely human encyclopedias stuffed with knowledge and information but proud students who also know how to act upon and use the knowledge positively..

Knowledge will not only be their wealth, it will be their power because during their stay in schools they would have learnt how to learn, how to create, how to adopt, how to cooperate, how to work in groups and above all how to live. Intelligence being a unique human quality, they will know that they are intelligent and how best they can use their intelligence. So knowledge will become their wisdom too.

Now to translate this vision into reality- Shared Vision must be collaborated with Shared Effort and Shared Responsibilities. Integrated thinking must go hand in hand and it is in this very direction that we should be marching ahead. The whole environment of the school should have a deep feeling of compassion, love and understanding because it is only in an open and participative environment that the child’s potential will come to the surface.

Real learning does not occur under any type of stress or fear as it kills the synergy of the people who work. The school, for each member of its family, should be a happy learning experience where everybody has the freedom to think, freedom to act, freedom to learn, freedom to experiment and above all freedom to express.

Soar High and Touch the Sky.

Warm Regards,

Mr. Inderjit Brar
