“Set not a goal too near at hand, lest it be easy won, and you content, with one small aim, Leave greater tasks undone. No great ship on its outbound way, but seeks some harbor far; and every hill, however high looks upward to a star.” It was the great Scientist Albert Einstein who remarked that “Education is what remains after one has forgotten what one has learnt from school”.

While it is true that information gathered in the course of schooling can be forgotten, the knowledge that one gains from education gets assimilated and forms the foundation for a sound future. Undoubtedly this knowledge is superior to the content of any text book, and any educational set up that places ‘knowledge-development’ above ‘information –gathering’ rightly shapes the lives of young learners , giving them necessary directions and the required impetus to surge ahead. Our philosophy at APS RK Puram is that education should aim at ‘insight formation’ rather than ‘rote learning’; for this the latent creative talents need to be nurtured; original thinking needs to be encouraged. I sincerely believe that with goal –directed assistance and support, the children will flourish in all the fields and turn out to be balanced personalities, of whom the whole country will be proud.

With our value based teaching concept, we at APS RK Puram Secunderabad educate our students so that they can surge ahead with bright hopes and renewed courage to face the challenges of the fast developing scientific, technological and computerized world and carry aloft the torch of dedication and service in the society to be dutiful, progressive, rational and disciplined citizens always adding newer milestones to the old. God Bless

Dear parents 

TOGETHER  WE CAN 
With the news of COVID 19 all around, our kids are just as scared as we are right now.  Our kids not only can hear everything that is going on around them, but they feel our constant tension and anxiety.  They have never experienced anything like this before. Although the idea of being off of school for weeks sounds awesome, they are probably picturing a fun time like summer break, not the reality of being trapped at home and not seeing their friends.
 
What kids need right now is to feel comforted and loved.  To feel like it’s all going to be ok. 
Make them do exercises to increase their stamina and give them healthy food and Vitamin C to build immunity. 
Play board games and watch movies.  
Start a book and read together as a family.  Engage them in household chores, educate them on conserving water and food and avoid wastage. Help them make your family tree and speak to their cousins and relatives.Do yoga together in the balcony. Have healthy lifestyle. 
 
Don’t worry about their studies we are engaging them with worksheets and assignments.Also online classes for senior students. 
When we are back in the classroom, we will take care of them .Teachers are experts at this!  Don’t pick fights with your kids .  Don’t scream at your kids for not following the schedule.  Don’t mandate 2 hours of learning time if they are resisting it.
 
If I can leave you with one thing, it’s this: at the end of all of this, your kid  should be Emotionally, mentally and physically strong to face the world which is more important than their academic skills.  And how they felt during this time will stay with them for long as a memory.
 
So keep that in mind, every single day to 
Stay safe, stay strong and stay blessed.
