The School Weekly - 12th February 2018

Education vs. Learning
Education can be defined as the process through which a society passes on the knowledge, values and skills from one generation to another. Learning can be defined as the acquiring of new skills, knowledge, and values. Both learning and education have a great influence on the mind and character of an individual. However, learning is the basic instinct possessed by all individuals, and, on the other hand, education is acquired by individuals. On the contrary, learning is the process of adopting knowledge, values and skills. Learning is said to be an on going process. An individual is always learning, from his birth till his death. Education is something that one gets at some point in their life. If learning is an informal process then education is a formal process. Education is something that one gets from a school or university; education is related to classroom learning, and some other set standards. On the contrary, learning evolves at the personal level, for which there are no set standards. A tutor imparts education, whereas an individual learns from his surroundings. Learning is knowledge gained through experience, and education is knowledge gained through teaching. Education can be said to be well organized, whereas learning is something that is related to an individual’s perception. - Gajendra Mewara/ Educator

Mr. Bansilal Parihar GP/O of Yug Bhati/ VIII gave a motivational message in the school assembly to be focused in life and understand the role of being punctual with every aspect of life. He shared with children to be extraordinary, by doing simple things in an extra ordinary way. To set example he related a story of J. C. Bose, who was an energetic and overactive person. One day his father called him and told him to bring a magnifying glass and piece of paper and asked him to concentrate on the paper but J.C. Bose did not concentrate on the  paper and did not understand  what was happening. Then he asked his father what he was trying to explain. His father took the magnifying glass and paper and concentrated on the paper. After some time he sees a hole in the paper because of the sunlight. His father told him that he wanted him to concentrate on one thing and save time and not waste time to do other things then  only we can get success be punctual and concentrate on things.
