Message from the Head of School
The four pillars of learning laid down by UNESCO is the vision and guiding force for us at Capstone High
1.Learning to know: provides an appropriate and adequate foundation for future learning for our children.
2.Learning to do: develops the skills that would enable them to effectively participate in the global economy and society.
3.Learning to be: enables the students to develop an all-round ‘personality.
4.Learning to live together: is to respect human relationships and live in peace and harmony
Our dreams have a lot to say about us, but they can also mean nothing. We have to sort through the dreams and ask if it has a meaning for us. Our dreams generally reflect something about ourselves and what we experience.
Former President of India APJ Abdul Kalam says
Dream, dream, dream
Dreams transform into thoughts
And thoughts results in action.
And my message to the young students is … have your dreams; it is good to dream of a bright future, comforts and a bountiful life. However what you do, to turn your dreams into reality, must be significant and come from deep within you.
Interacting with young people has taught me to never give up on dreams, to have faith and to realise that even the smallest thing we do will be amply rewarded.
It is important that as Parents we encourage them to be good human beings; as Teachers nurture creativity, guide our children to be enlightened and hardworking; and as a Community nurture a sense of dignity and self-respect.
Our goals give us happiness, and the process of reaching them should be a great journey as well.
In the words of Mahatma Gandhi:
When I believe I can, then I acquire the ability to do it even if I didn’t have it in the beginning.
