“I am not a teacher, but an awakener.”-Robert Frost
I firmly believe that education’s purpose is not to deluge minds with information, but, as a good education must endow one with the necessary knowledge and skills needed to succeed in today’s world, so too, it is the onus of the educator to ensure that it is much more than this. It must develop the entire person, and not just the mind, from character, to grooming, and nurturing talents- things that textbooks alone cannot ever teach a person.
It was keeping these ideals in mind that LGS Paragon City came into being. Ever since our inception, we have continually strived to ensure that we produce not only excellent minds, but exceptional people. I believe that here, it is our duty to make sure that we leave no stone unturned for our children, which is what our student body is to us, and thus strive to make sure we give them the best possible education we can, to mould them into real people, with values and ideals, who think and act on their own, on the basis of what they believe to be best, and thus, help in developing a more moderate, free-thinking society.
It is for these very reasons, because of our ideology and the fact that we strive to turn beliefs into practices that I urge and look forward to you joining us here at LGS Paragon the coming term.
With warm regards,
