Dear parents, students and visitors to our website,
It gives me great pleasure to welcome you on our website.
It is an undeniable fact that the present education is considered merely an accumulation of knowledge. However different people in different parts of the world, understand the concept of education differently. According to western concept, education is external in nature.
According to John Dewey “education is the development of all the capacities in the individual which will enable him to control his environment”. The Indian view strongly emphasises the innate faculties and development of these to the maximum to acquire knowledge.
Shri. Shankaracharya says “education is the realisation of self”. In the same chain of thought, Swami Vivekananda says “education means manifestation of the divine perfection already existing in humankind “ according to the Upanishad” Saa Vidya Yaa Vidya Vimuktaye, which means education, is for liberation. In the Indian Context education liberates students from the shackles of economic poverty, ignorance, superstition, social evils makes a person a free human being. Katherine Public School is in its steady stride of progress and activities, from its embryonic stage to its full today. Together with Rabindranath Tagore, let us raise our future generation to “Into that heaven of freedom my father let my countrymen awake”.
