“The teacher, who can immediately come down to the level of the student, and transfer his soul to the student's soul and see through the student's eyes and hear through student's ears and understand through student's mind, only such a teacher can really teach and none else.” Swami Vivekananda
“One can always access best books of the world, but cannot access best teacher, even of the same locality. If a student wants to cross the knowledge level of his teacher, he/she must not be dependent on teacher, rather he/she must develop an ability to understand what is written in books/print media and electronic media.”VPSChairman
At VPS we shall be making every student capable of understanding what is written in books/print media. VPS is committed to provide an education, where there shall be no need for home tuition. To do this, teachers at VPS shall strive to follow the Vivekananda concept and shall come down to the level of the student, and transfer their soul to the student's soul and see through the student's eyes and hear through student's ears and understand through student's mind.A teacher, teaching a primary kid has to take himself to the level of primary kid and has to use those concepts which can be understood by the primary kid.
In its pursuits, among many things, VPS is inspired by a TED Talk by Sonam Wangchuk titled “Education in India: Are students failing or the system?” available at https://youtu.be/qH1HCYy1NTc , which is very much relevant in the present context. VPS will strive to find out capabilities of each student, where he/she can excel.
On frequent intervals learning symposium shall be organized. In these symposium a single topic, be it related with science or history or geography or a philosophy shall be given to students on which students will deliberate. Though these symposiums, the students’ level of knowledge and understanding on the topic given, is expected to surpass the knowledge of their peer groups.
Aptitude and counseling
At VPS we shall be assessing the aptitude of every student and providing counseling sessions, where the area of excellence of each student shall be identified. An early identification of area of excellence will keep the student motivated all time and shall lead to better career growth.
