In the words of Nelson Mandela, “Education is the most powerful weapon, which you can use to change the world.”
Truly, in the budding years of one’s life, school plays a pivotal role in not just academic development, but also overall growth of an individual. It is at the school that a child learns the ABC to XYZ of life, and whatever he learns here, remains with him forever. Be it academics, or learning a social way of living, it is at the school that a child first faces his new world, where he meets new faces and learns to live in a society. A school is largely responsible for building up the moral ethics and day-to-day knowledge. Most importantly, it brings out the latent talents of a child and then gives an opportunity to polish the same. This is why a good school is what every parent wishes for their child.
