“Success comes to those who work hard and stays with those, who don’t rest on the laurels of the past.”
We live today in a world that is so very different from the one we grew up in, the one we were educated in. The world today is changing at such an accelerated rate and we as educators need to pause and reflect on this entire system of Education.
We at Sardar Dastur Hormazdiar Junior College work at implementing a well-balanced curriculum to ensure that the STUDENTS who walk into the portals of our Junior College will be truly prepared to face life’s challenges.
It is said”Children must be taught how to think, not what to think,” and to enable this, our motto of Knowledge, Imagination and Innovation is encouraged through a holistic approach. “TO MOTIVATE THE WEAK, TO ADDRESS THE AVERAGE AND CHALLENGE THE GIFTED” is the teaching vision of our Junior College.
Aristotle once said that, “Educating the mind without educating the heart is no education at all.” Even as we impart education to match the advancement in technology and globalization, we march our students ahead with ethos of morals values and principles. We endeavour constantly to instill these qualities in our children. We pride ourselves to help them grow and develop into sensitive and responsible citizens of the next generation.
While academic, excellence is our major thrust, the Junior College is also devoted to prepare our students for life, prepare them to face the challenges of tomorrow, and encourage them to be socially relevant. We encourage each student to develop in their special field to interest so as to best showcase their particular type of talent and grow to their full potential, and constantly groom them to pass out as men and women competent to bear responsibility in all walks of life.
Our Junior College aims to develop a good sense of discipline and moral values within the ever-changing social norms of society. Students these days are much more sensitive; they possess very high self-esteem and believe in independent thinking. Therefore, we ensure that the approach to motivating and getting the best out of students is based on the positive reinforcement of good work and good behavior. Our educational philosophy is centered on praise, encouragement, enthusiasm, and affection, rather than criticism, fear and punishment.
A committed and supportive management, dedicated teachers, caring and co-operative parents blend harmoniously to create a student-centric Jr. college. It is natural to find in this ambience, the intensive use of a variety of thinking activities, strategies and group dynamics so that the classrooms become alive.
Teamwork is the hallmark of Sardar Dastur Hormazdiar Junior College. I am very sure through collaborative effort we can achieve more to benefit our students who are the future leaders of tomorrow.
