Message from the Chairman
As a generation of senior citizens, I believe that we shoulder an immense responsibility of leaving a meaningful legacy for the children of this world. While permanence is an illusion, positive change should be intentional and not incidental. The question that often comes to our mind is – In the flurry of activities that we undertake every day, how many of them will make an enduring difference to the children we claim to love so much...? Are we compromising creativity by emphasizing discipline and pushing children to meet the expectations of our society? Are our children ready to embrace and define the formless future?
Our endeavor and dream is to nurture every child in our care and help him reach his highest potential. We know for sure that this will require us and all educators at MGM School to become more flexible and examine the future by discarding the rigid lens of the past. It is only in accepting the unforeseen, that possibilities will emerge.
As a generation, let us learn to pause, reflect and re-define our actions to match our intent. Let us be conscientious about conservation of resources by taking only as much as we need. We have an opportunity to mould the future generations – as teachers and parents let us prioritize and make the best use of our time and energy to scaffold our children and teach them the LESSONS OF LIFE. You will find us by your side in this noble cause - always!
Blessings and Best Wishes.
