Role of School in building character of student
The first human contact in a child’s life is “mother”. As the child grows and develops, his needs and requirements evolve. Thus comes the role of School. It equips a child to face all experiences necessary for child’s growth and development till he reaches level of maturity to face the world. B K Birla Public School (BKBPS) is not just about learning concepts; it is also a place where a strong foundation can be built for becoming upstanding adults. It is managed by professionals with embodiment of knowledge, wisdom and exemplary leadership with great source of inspiration, motivation to all and an epitome of excellence and perfection in academics, full of benevolence and brilliance, zenith of generosity, a fabulous mentor, a true inspiration to build a positive and strong self-esteem and believes in mission statement which is to nurture the innate potential of young minds and mould them into passionate, committed, competent value-based students with leadership qualities. School is an integral part of a child’s life, not just to gain knowledge or information but to learn the essential threads of group dynamics, adjustment, developing interpersonal skills to live in a connected world. It provides a plethora of platforms through scholastics, co- scholastic activities, values through life skill education, personality development, sportsmanship spirit and team abilities, which help any child to evolve as a responsible individual. School helps to build self-confidence and core values which cannot be learnt in isolation, apart from inculcating the skills through a rich school life where they learn to live well and together in a harmonious manner, ironing out differences at every step. Teachers are role models for students and can provide examples of good character every day in the classroom, helping them communicate better, apart from appreciating and respecting others’ opinion. It helps one learn the expected norms of behaviour for living in a social environment, to think and act critically, follow a regimen, which helps a child develop self-discipline. The systematic and meticulous training helps a child learn better work ethics and understand the concept of healthy competition. Also, character building can be done proactively through planned actions and activities within the classroom,
which will encourage students to develop and adopt quality ethical principles and behaviours that can last far beyond the classroom. As parents of 2 children in BKBPS, we are confident that under the tutelage of your capable, committed teachers and with invaluable guidance, the students of BKBPS including our children would not only pass through with flying colours but also move on to college education and a great future with right values and beliefs deeply instilled in them.
