New Horizon School

No one can whistle a symphony... It takes an orchestra to play it.

New Horizon School has been deepening its root in the field of education for the past four decades and is now recognized as one of the esteemed institutions of the city. I feel proud and privileged to be the part of this magnificent institution. At this juncture, I gratefully acknowledge the untiring effort and selfless service rendered by the esteemed members of the School Managing Committee, dedicated teachers, support staff and ever supporting parents in bringing better efficiency and recognition to this institution.

We are living in a fast forward age. Everything is changing at a fast speed. We are now exposed to the omnipresence of mass media. The growing volume of information and knowledge through various technologies, so called Digital World, has established the fact that access to knowledge is free and quick. In spite of the rapid progress in information technology and society at large, it is being realized that there is a gaping void with regard to holistic and integral development of an individual personality. Human life in general has become more frustrating and complex today. People have become more self-centered, egoistic, intolerant, corrupt, suspicious, hedonistic etc. As an educationist, I personally believe that no one would ever argue for a value less system of education. If we believe and accept that education is a formative process then the schools and the teachers in particular have a greater role to play in the fast changing world of today to instill human values in the children and to prepare them to face life as it comes.

The term 21st century learning is used frequently to represent the current approach to educational reform. The term generally describes education that is learner-centred, inquiry-based, technology-rich, inter-disciplinary, collaborative and personalized. The rate of change in the world is exponential and it is constantly accelerating. Enlightened school leaders and promoters have realized that education is no longer about what the next trends are going to be and preparing students for those, but it is about preparing students for the unknown- the unpredictable. It is about teaching students to become lifelong learners so that they build skills to adapt to change.
I am pleased to acknowledge that New Horizon School lays its stress, not just on academic excellence but also on character formation. It motivates children to always aim high and cultivate core values as a first place for the Divine, integrity of character and maturity in behaviour, pursuit of excellence and creative genius, respect of the human person with an emphasis for elders and teachers, loyalty to the nation and a balanced understanding of the prevailing global situation.


Best wishes for an enriching and fruitful new academic year!
