Relentless advances in sciences as also other spheres of learning and continuous emergence of new technologies have been persistently altering the very landscape of information and hence of the universe we live in. In such a world, where change appears to be the only constant, good schools the world over must facilitate within their students the growth of skills, aptitudes and attitudes to be autonomous learners who construct their knowledge independently as well as engender among young people the capacity for coping creatively, competently, cheerfully with all kinds of change.
I feel deeply enthused to take on the mantle of the Principal of Adamas World School (AWS) and return to work in Bengal after many years with the hope of contributing to the process of this wonderful institution’s evolution into a true world class centre of holistic excellence in schooling. AWS is totally committed to having the right kind of training and re-training programmes, systems of operational procedures and all the innovative options for process-driven and outcome-based education in place. The school upholds the overall paradigm of student-centred, skills-based, inquiry-oriented, personalized programme of holistic education concentrated on hands-on conceptual learning to suit the needs of the present generation of school-going digital natives – individually and collectively.
