Any new beginning is accompanied with excitement, enthusiasm, positive energy and of course detailed planning and tremendous preparation. The role of school has increased many folds as it has become a ‘world in miniature’.
‘Education is not preparation for life; education is life itself – John Dewey’
It has become an absolute necessity to incorporate value education to familiarize our children to our rich culture. Endeavour will be to incorporate respect for values, universal brotherhood and philosophy of ‘Vishwashanti’ or ‘world peace’ along with a global outlook and perspective to sensitise them to current developments taking place worldwide and educate them for a culturally versatile future. Today’s challenging dynamic global world makes it imperative to become adaptable and lifelong learners. The CBSE curriculum is a blend of national curriculum with modern pedagogical practices relevant to real life application. The multi-disciplinary approach to teaching, combining the strong theory-based knowledge system of the Indian education with the practical application and research-based approach ensures that our students are equipped with the best of skills and knowledge and are ready to play their role as future global citizens. The curriculum is unique as it weaves inventive thinking, multiple intelligences and differentiated learning. The advantages of being ‘learner and learning-centered’, ‘systematic and reflective’ makes it the most popular board.
We at MIT VGS Loni, encourage our children to become ‘critical analytical thinkers’. Our innovative teaching methodology, attention to the individual, small class size, superior faculty and student-friendly administration are designed to make an unparalleled knowledge base that emphasizes the connection of the mind, body, spirit and fosters internal growth and self-mastery along with skill acquisition. The use of VAKT (Visual, Auditory, Kinesthetic-through movement and Tactile) and exploratory technique helps in cognitive development and aids comprehension. Learning here is developed by way of participation and unconventional modes using practical, demonstrations, visuals, enactment, web-based themes, projects, presentations, smart boards, experimentation, problem solving etc. which attract and stimulate the tender minds. We have taken education beyond the classroom boundaries and tried to reflect the kaleidoscope of learning, adventures and creativities by using various academic activities on a regular basis.
We believe that positive self-image is benefitted through success in academic and non –academic activities and it is our goal to raise the bar for all students so they go forward with the skills and confidence to be successful in our highly competitive society. We do this by offering advanced classes through language, arts, social studies, math and science while also providing extra support in reading, writing, numeracy and study skills. The mission of MIT VG School Loni is to nurture a culture where students are valued as individuals and allowed to explore their creative talents. Various Extra Curricular Activities and Co-Curricular Activities help our children to explore their creative side and bring out their hidden talents. As a Principal I firmly believe that we need to build a strong character with an innate sense of right and wrong. Compassion along with awareness helps in making right choices. The endeavor is to equip the pupil with the means to find the answers for himself and within himself.
