Only with this idea in mind the first Matriculation 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.
It is only a child’s world that is fresh and new and beautiful, full of wonder and excitement. Children have neither past nor future; they enjoy the present, which very few of us do. A child should be free in its world of imagination. There should be no restrictions, no rules and no regulations in that colourful sojourn. If you suppress the imagination in a child he might grow up to be an egg plant.
When a child sees a ‘rainbow’ in the gutter water caused by a drop of oil, do not bring in Science to explain it. Appreciate and celebrate the plain, pure and chaste joy of the child. The broken glass pieces, the faded rubber band, the scratched toy car tyre, the bottomless top, the colour gone marbles, the corner less and chipped slate are all the priceless treasures of a child. When you are creative you fail to be neat.
Parents in the name of clearing and cleaning crush the child’s dreams and his little world. Leave him alone; Let him build castles in the clouds. Allow him to dream even by day.
This is said beautifully by Francis Thompson: “Know you what is to be a child? It is to believe in love, to believe in loveliness, to believe in belief; It is to be so little that the elves can reach to whisper in your ears, it is to turn pumpkins into coaches and mice into horses, lowliness into loftiness and nothing into everything; for each child has its fairy god mother in its soul".
We believe that “ Education is a natural process carried out by the child through experience in the environment”.
