Man’s achievements in the field of science and technology have helped to improve the material conditions of living. What we need today, is a transformation of the soul. Education should serve not only to develop one’s intelligence and skills but also help broaden one’s outlook and make him useful to the society and the world at large. It must result in purifying one’s perception. Even technology must be dedicated to the promotion of high ideals and human values.
Education should help to make students the embodiments of human values. It is said, “Though no one can go back and make a brand new start, anyone can start from now and make a brand new ending.” The future of our children lies in our hands, let us jointly hold hands and make them true human beings, worthy of all mankind and achieve high level of living, involving our mind, intellect and consciousness.
School is a constantly transforming entity like the flowing waters, igniting little lamps of hope and wisdom. My ultimate endeavor, as proud Principal of this great entity had been not only to maintain the flow i.e to churn out better individuals but also to transform their immediate environment by equipping the faculty with newer educational strategies and training, developing the infrastructure o facilitate a steady blossoming from the playgrounds to hostel to new academic block to cadets’ mess and so on and most significantly altering the mindset of the cadets with the help of ex-boys, resource people and dignitaries from varied fields.
Today SS Jhansi is recognized as an institution of excellence that nurtures intellectual and academic pursuits, provides adequate opportunities for co-curricular and extra-curricular activities and creates a conducive environment for over-all development of young inquisitive minds when they enter the portals of this vibrant institution. No wonder it sends out some of the brightest minds into the world, who carry their education no matter where they go.
National Defence Academy is the dream of every cadet of SS Jhansi. The school plays a pivotal role in actualizing this dream of the cadets and leaves no stone unturned in enabling them to reach the portals of their aspiration in life.
