From the Desk of Principal (FDoP) :
It is not what is poured into a student that counts but what is planted.
John Dewey rightly asserted that “Education is not the preparation for life; it is life itself”. I have always been amazed by the wide spectrum of the teaching-learning process because it makes you realize how little you know despite spending a great length of time chiselling the cognitive domain. It is only when you interact with the pupils that you know that each learner in the classroom is unique and the way he explores the concept is different from the way you anticipated.
It is here that the teacher plays a crucial role as he tries to build a bridge that links two different perceptions and integrates it into a whole idea. Education is thus not the amount of information that is put into the brain and runs riot there, undigested throughout life. It is a life-building, man-making, character-making assimilation of ideas.
To sum up, the need of the hour is the kind of education by which character is formed, strength of mind is increased, the intellect is expanded and by which, one can lead an independent life analyzing the vagaries of it by coming to terms with reality. Every teacher has to comprehend that he who learns, teaches; and he who teaches, learns. It is then that the classroom will become a world of limitless possibilities where young aspirants will revel in the discovery of knowledge.
The aim of AIS is to equip the students to achieve the above mentioned objectives and to tread on the ‘untrodden’ path with dedicated discipline and internal motivation. We must make big plans, aim even higher and work tirelessly to always remain at the pinnacle of our achievements.
