Child is the father of man, Wordsworth said. Indeed, every child toddles to the future with many possibilities. It is the responsibility of the school to help them blossom.
The role of the institution is crucial: it guides the little ones in the most formative years of their life, gives them a certain orientation and moulds their personalities. The school occupies a lot of space in the story of their growing up.
At Basava International School we have a clear idea about our role in the children's journey into the future. We want our students to boldly meet the challenges of a brave new world imbibing the values of a 5000-year-old civilization. That has been the Indian experience so far.
The great men and women of this country who have gone out and conquered the world, have been steeped in a long, rich tradition. That is what this school seeks to achieve – a fine blend between the mindboggling technological innovations in the West and the Indian ethos of tolerance and non-violence.
For us every child who walks onto our premises is a promise to the future, an immense possibility to be carefully nurtured and a pledge to be redeemed.
We do not want our students to be merely successful but tell them to make an impact. If we have a motto it is what Robert Frost wrote:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I – I took the one less traveled by, And that has made all the difference”
