Schools today are no longer mere centres of spreading literacy – if a school today encompasses a much wider horizon they are facilitators in the important process of personal growth and development of an individual as a resourceful member of the society.
Knowledge which is acquired under compulsion obtains no hold on mind. – Plato
What according to you is the importance of education – scoring high marks? Certificate acquisition? Honing the skills of rote learning to spew out the crammed information effortlessly?
Unfortunately this is the sole purpose of education being marketed by our system today. Education has to serve the means to open the mind. It has to teach us how to think rather than telling us what to think. This is what we aim to do at The St. Wilfred’s School – implant a seed of inquisitiveness, cultivate a love of learning and groom the child to become an independent thinker and a visionary leader. Effective learning involves creating and solving our own errors. I want our children to go ahead, stretch out enthusiastically to test their limitlessness, not to fear committing mistakes nor fear encountering failures, for these should be used as stepping stones to move ahead towards fulfilment of their dreams and aspirations.
Our children need to be guided to learn to think, reason, analyse and not follow blindly. Combine the learning with actions, let unavoidable errors impel them to seek greater understanding. Teachers, parents and guardians need to work together to give our children a platform from which they may learn to open their wings and soar up confidently towards success
Dr. Keshav Badaya
I am very pleased to state that the St.Wilfred Education Society is promised to the entire development of a wholesome foundation for a generation which would shape the bright future of our nation in the years to come.
“Build your schools around concepts, not only academic subjects but core concepts such as awareness, honest, genuine and dedicated. First of all be honest and genuine with yourself because you can deceive everyone but not yourself. If you fall in your own eyes you can never get the respect of the others in order to fulfill your aims you have to organise yourself, lead a disciplined life, form a good character and rest follows”.

“Education is not the learning of facts but the training of mind to think”
Learning is not a process limited to schools, it is indeed a lifelong process. Our school is oriented to the holistic development of child and to adaptation of various methods suiting the dynamics of changing world in order to achieve excellence. We strongly promote academic achievement among our students by drawing on the talents and skills of staff, students and parents to provide a host of educational programmes and projects.
