To teach is to touch a life forever. As a follower of Jesus, The Divine Teacher, we firmly believe that true education is giving life to another. Through education we nurture in students convictions about the sacredness of life. The goal of education is to teach the students to live, to discover the deeper meaning of life, love the creation, think freely and find fulfillment in every endeavour. In a word “to learn to be”. It is in and through education that one can hope to build a harmonious society for the future.
Anne Marie Javouhey our foundress was an innovator in the field of education of her times. She said “Love the children, bring them up well. They are our future”. It is not sufficient to have taught children how to work and satisfy their purely materialistic needs. They must also learn how to live with others and themselves and to realize what they owe to God and their brothers and sisters.
True to the vision of Jesus our great teacher, Anne Marie Javouhey our foundress, we in the Cluny family strive to instill in students basic values especially the heart level and head level values to bring in vigor and zeal in the school environment.
Our Late Prime Minister Mrs Indira Gandhi said the following on education:
“Education is much more than preparation for a career or a means of acquiring skills for particular professions. The best education is a means and a road to fulfillment. It is a continuous process from the minute we are born until we die”. When a person ceases to learn one ceases to be fully alive .To step out into darkness holding the hand of a friend is an act of trust and when that friend is an educator the action transforms into education and the individual earns not mere knowledge but wisdom.
As we move towards the digital era the e- era, there are some significant areas that come to my mind and needs a great engagement. The five E’s Engage, Evolve, Empower, Energize and Emotional Quotient are the words that the next generation must seriously adapt and it is in these areas that Cluny hopes to work with great diligence and aspiration in the forthcoming years.
Students’ or rather young girls must engage themselves in the learning process with great enthusiasm. The society today is in a state of flux and the dynamics keep changing constantly. So, engaging positively and interacting with self, teachers, school, environment and society and being alert to the needs of all has become absolutely necessary to help them lead a promising future. This in turn will help them evolve and nurture themselves into bright young women of the new India.
Empowerment of young, dynamic girls is the key area under focus at Cluny. Our approach is child centric and every child is special here. This Alma Mater welcomes every little girl with open arms and helps her find her space with which she establishes herself as the years roll by. Exposure to various situations in the form of dance, plays, elocution, quiz, games, modeling with various elements and such other activities helps her to engage herself actively in various co- curricular activities that helps develop inter and intra personal skills a very important element to succeed in all spheres in the future.
Academic excellence and a combination of these activities help every child to use her latent talent in as many ways as possible. In the light of collapsing and conflicting value systems we impart spiritual awakening through a very well established value based education sessions. This goes a long way in fostering national unity and a feeling of oneness towards all. Inculcating moral values right from the day a little girl steps into our fold has been our main initiative right since the inception of this school. These sessions helps each child to understand in depth the value of each intricate relationship that she has to maintain and keep for life. We help young girls to make a prudent choice in matters of family, life and human love. These classes give her an opportunity to discuss and assess problems, devise strategies to discover life and give it a positive stroke thus helping her to feel energized – a very important constituent during the growing years.
This new generation, the techie generation has a great advantage as their brains are technically wired and ready to absorb and assimilate even the toughest of tasks with ease. But, what requires utmost attention is the ability to handle emotional situations with ease as today EQ scores more than IQ in the current realm of affairs. Ability to accept all, reject none, accept failures with ease and to smile away no matter what may be the situation is the challenge that the current generation faces. Life is a roller- coaster ride and to derive the best results out of any situation is and will always be an ace up her sleeve as she graduates out of school to face the world and taking all in her stride.
With a grateful heart I thank the Almighty for having chosen me to administer and lead this esteemed institution which has crossed a milestone – a journey of 56 years in this city of Salem. With these strings of thoughts, I wish all the Clunyites best of luck and remember that there is no greater learning in life than the ability to live in the present and to touch and experience each moment with a feeling of thanks to the Almighty. You should lead life by living it by your heart and to give back to life the fullness that it had the generosity to give it to you.
