Albert Einstein had to tell the truth: “Modern education is competitive, nationalistic and separative. It has trained the child to regard material values as of major importance, to believe that his nation is also of major importance and superior to other nations and peoples. The general level of world information is high but usually biased, influenced by national prejudices, serving to make us citizens of our nation but not of the world.”
Education is facing dramatically swift changes during our era. Besides intellectual formation and skill development,capacities like social, emotional, spiritual quotients have been integrated in the recent past decades into formal teaching-learning system. Soft skills, coding and decoding are part too in the academic formation. Smart education or online education has already stepped in. In this scenario, St. Claret School emerges as a conservatorythat integrates traditional values of our sovereign soil and modern clinical educational technology.
St. Claret has been championing the changing seasons and adopted herself to the most scientific way of learning with the uniqueness of holistic formation after the model of “Happiness Curriculum”. We are enroute to disprove John W. Garner: “Much education today is monumentally ineffective. All too often we are giving young people cut flowers when we should be teaching them to grow their own plants.” This is validated by the scores of Claretines who have smashed the “the sky is the limit” taboo and have traversed diverse jobs and are mentors in different fields with their roots in the ethos of St. Claret. We proudly uphold our legacy and sweat to share the same with every future generation of Claretines, our students.
We, in collaboration with our incredible parents and well-wishers, are engineering a breed of future-ready global citizens who as well as be guardians of conscience and cosmos.
