Dear Parents, Students and Community Members,
As the Principal of Don Bosco Academy, McCluskiegunj, Ranchi my primary focus is student learning. All students must be prepared to be successful in 21st century careers - many of which do not even exist yet. Students must know how to think, to problem solve, to innovate and to collaborate.
There is no longer a single pathway to that end, but whatever paths our students choose must be steeped with effort, dedication, relevance and relationships. In all their courses, students must be challenged beyond their comfort zones and encouraged to think critically and creatively. Students must be provided with authentic learning experiences, and they must be connected to adults who truly care.As the adults in their lives, we must provide guidance in the development of character. We must help students act with compassion, accept responsibility and choose to do the right thing.
Our philosophy of education has always been meeting the needs of the individual child. Children acquire skills and knowledge easily if we can make the surrounding stimulating and purposeful. In the 21st century, the Digital Revolution affects us all. Quite simply, it is changing everything. In such a surrounding when work and effort is valued, the child's self -esteem is heightened, and from this results self-motivation. We try to understand and work with each child, and we firmly believe that it is our responsibility to enable the child in our care to develop as a whole.
If innovation and novel ideas are a key to a bright future, then we can surely remain assured of our place under the pedagogic sun. We put forward a distinctive blend of offerings in the areas of knowledge and enterprise in the form of encouraging students for debates elocution and quiz contests as well as organizing and taking part in various cultural events. We also have an optional extra-curricular activity programme where multifarious disciplines like music, dance, cricket, basketball, football, etc. are taught under the careful guidance of renowned coaches and teachers.
Today, as we march forward, we pledge to work for every child- and in the process, open new vistas in the area of education.
