“My soul is not contained within the limits of my body; my body is contained within the limitlessness of my soul”.
These words form the Canadian-American comedian and writer Jim Carrey help us realize a very important dimension of education, that of leading a child to the portals of the infinite possibilities that we are all entitled to, and making them confident and strong enough to set on a journey of realization. Education should be directed to teaching children the boundlessness of human life. We need to make children realize that they are perfect as they are, help them appreciate themselves for who they are, and inspire and assist them to expand their vision and action in such a way that each child can grow beyond the boundaries which the society, the customs and traditions and the family place around them.
Education should also help young minds ‘to think larger than who they are’, and to set goals that are high enough to bring out the best in them. This will happen only when the younger generation find themselves in a climate that motivates them to think greater than their environment. This process has taken place in the history of every great human being.
St. Vincent Pallotti School makes every effort to create an environment where each child can meet a larger vision of herself or himself and confidently strive to realize the incredible potencies and talents that reside within them. Each teacher and staff of this institution strives on a daily basis to become best mentors, facilitators and guru to every child who enter this beautiful campus.
