Ralph Waldo Emerson said, “Do not go where the path way lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail”. Only with this idea in mind the first ICSE School is budding here at Kumbakonam. In the past, the term ‘genius’ referred only to a person with a very high score in an IQ test. We now know that there are several kinds of intelligence like Intelligence Quotient (IQ), Emotional Quotient (EQ) and Higher Order Thinking (HOT) and who knows at this point what else is yet to be discovered. The appearance of Humanistic psychology in 1960 has placed a new emphasis on the ‘whole’ person. We come to realize that there’s pure intellectual genius, artistic genius, the movement genius of an athlete or dancer, musical genius, relationship building genius, leadership genius, entrepreneurial genius etc..This list goes on and on.
Each one of us is gifted in a unique and important way. God sent you down to earth to bloom, to sprout, to live out the message that is embedded in you. True education, it is said, should draw out the best in the person and lead to an all-round personality development.
The ICSE curriculum which is being implemented by CISCE lays emphasis on the holistic assessment of the learner. Karthi Vidhyalaya offers ample opportunities to students in order to draw out from them greater range of skills and talents than they know they possess. It is imperative that parents too encourage their wards to develop their latent talents and skills and help them to achieve their goals in the field of their choice.
“Children are like butterflies in the wind. Some can fly higher than others, but each one flies the best it can. Why compare one against the other?
Each one is Different.
Each one is Special.
Each one is Beautiful in his own way.”
