PRINCIPAL’S FOREWORD

Venunadhan B. Pillai

If anyone asks me what the roles of education are, my answer will be that it has manifold roles. However, the primary ones are to define an individual’s character, inculcate a sense of maturity, and help build personal integrity.

A student’s growth both inside and outside the classroom is defined largely by the overall educational experience through his/her interaction with teachers, peers, parents and society as a whole. Students, therefore, should get all the opportunities to excel in everything they do. Hence, a good school must aim to develop people of conviction, conscience and competence out of students. The students should have resilience to live in this challenging and ever changing world. They should have a passion to be world class. They should take responsibility and should be upright and unflinching in action. To achieve all these, a school must endeavour to all round grooming, focussing on physical, intellectual, emotional, psychological and spiritual development. The school should have a synthesis of carefully designed activity oriented curricular and co-curricular activities and constantly updated pedagogy to equip the students with the academic and social skills, emotional intelligence and healthy habits.

Bodhi International School follows this philosophy and grooms students towards elevating them from just knowing and doing to performing and accomplishing through inspirational instructional quality and fulfilling school experience.
