“The highest education is that which does not merely give us information
but makes our life in harmony with all existence.” –Rabindranath Tagore
We worry about what our child
will become tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today. To celebrate the
journey of learning we embraced the My Good School program.
My Good School Program for schools helps empower students by creating an
environment for the personal and social development of an individual. By
subscribing to our philosophy of quality in education, offering an environment
where experiential learning is made possible through activities beyond just
study brings to life learning that would otherwise be theoretical and
The Four S’s (Service, Skill, Sports, and Study) play a great role in our
journey of learning.
The first S SERVICE:
Service learning is a spin on both community service and project based
learning, it’s important for students to understand their important role in a
community. Service learning projects can be life changing for students. They
learn empathy for others, and may even get the real life experience they need
which will inspire them to find a career. Through helping others students may
find that they want to go into the human services field or even go more global
by joining the Peace Corps.

& STUDY: They resemble the two sides of the same coin. If sports
education is carried out accompanied with the academic curriculum, the overall
personality of the student is increased to quite an extent. The qualities of
the leadership, sharing, team spirit and tolerance are learnt from sports.

stamina, but also the habit of obedience, discipline,
