THE SCHOOL EMBELEM

THE MEANING OF THE MOTTO AND THE EMBLEM

The Motto : ‘MOULDING THE FUTURE’

The motto of our school is 'Moulding the Future', which we have expressed in the pregnant Sanskrit form, भविष्यस्य संस्कार: (Bhavisyasya Samskarah). Children/Students are our future. They do not come to us as a 'clean slate' or 'tabula rasa' to be filled with information. Rather, they come with a lot of potentialities that, like clay, need to be moulded, trans-formed and perfected. This notion is aptly expressed by the very rich word Samskarah. In our context, the prefix sam conveys the idea of refinement, polishing, completeness, perfection, and so the word samskarah, corresponding to the word 'perfection', encapsulates the meaning of moulding, transforming, refining, cultivating, purifying, sanctifying and the like. Samskarah thus takes a holistic and integral approach: developing the physical, psychological, intellectual and spiritual aspects of the one's personality. Through imparting knowledge, excellence, values, empowerment towards liberation and national integration, teachers exercise their midwifery function of 'e-ducating' (derived from the Latin 'to lead out'), bringing about a new birth by transforming the raw, natural, ordinary material(prakrta) into something polished, beautiful, cultured and perfect (samskrta).
