MESSAGE OF THE CHAIRMAN
It gives me immense pleasure to be a part of the progress and the laurels brought up by the students for the school.
As it is rightly said, that the education is the key to the holistic development of a child, APS Ahmednagar is catering to the needs of every young mind . The school is following the yardsticks set by 'AWES' and CBSE whole heartedly. Continuous Comprehensive Evaluation (CCE) is proving to be a wonderful way of bringing out creativity, talent and self awareness in young pioneers of tomorrow.
The school is paving the path for the success and achievement not only in academics but also in other arenas like sports, co-curricular and creativity for every individual child.
The school is providing various ways of learning which have given wings of creativity to fly and fill the sky with vibrant colours of words, expression, emotions and feelings .The same is reflected in the annual magazine 'Expression'
I congratulate the Principal, Staff and Editorial board for their perseverance and efforts in bringing out this magazine.
A school is a temple of learning. The foundation of a child is laid in a school and it is strengthened in the college and the university. A good school background helps in building the career of the student. A well-groomed child is able to contribute more towards his family, employer and society. The young generation affects the society through their own mindset and perceptions; and if this generation acquires good and quality education, it will surely have a direct and positive impact on the society. So, we can say that school education and society are deeply related as school provide its end-products human resources to the society. And a well composed society will in return enhance and enrich the education system.Education is the distinctive identity of every society or nation. If we really want to see India as a developed nation, then our education system has to achieve the goals of education. Education should groom young minds for life and not for degrees. "Give a person a fish and he'll be fed for a day; teach him to fish and he'll eat always. Education is not merely parting knowledge among students but to develop a quest in the younger minds to gain knowledge. Very often we link education with school work or books, but learning can be best achieved through experience and self-involvement as it is truly said that -Experience is a good teacher. Education is not churning out students but learned minds, who would be keen to learn more. Education should be pragmatic, slow, vocation-oriented, value based and should teach the young generation to respect ones culture and tradition. Value based education is the need of the hour. If good moral values are not entrusted among young minds, the educational goals will never be achieved and will lead to vices in the society so, 'Training of mind is best accomplished with the training of the heart'. Educational goals, will be achieved only when there's an all-round development of students. So, to sum up, the education system must be tuned to the modern needs of the society and the mother earth.
"Schools are the nurseries of our civilization. If the nurseries are healthy and morally upright, it would surely nurture, strengthen and develop a sapling (a child) and the final crop would be an asset for the society and for the nation.
