school can be considered as a congenial place of awakening of the
child. Awakening to ones own potentialities, to possibilities
and the joy of learning and growing along with others. This
requires a fundamental value of search in the ethos of the school.
Usually in a school, high priority is given to passing and securing
high grades in examinations and the least priority given to the
process of learning-experimentation, discovery, questioning, identification
of issues and problems and personal / team effort to resolving
It is the skills of learning that will put the child on the path
on continuous growth, build self-confidence to meet the small and
big challenges it has to encounter in life and give a direction
for finding the deeper dimensions of life and make its existence
full, meaningful and joyous – a ceaseless adventure of search
Can The Oxford English School create a milieu for its students
to experience the thrill of continuous growth by acquiring the
skill of learning how to learn? Can it create an atmosphere of
search and discovery, experimentation and self – expression?
This is a challenge for the Management and staff, parents and
well wishes of the school.
