As an international school, NISV strives to inculcate the same ethos of inquiry to reinforce learning. At the same time its policies and programmes find an echo in the philosophy of J.Krishnmurthy which considers a school as “a place where one learns about the totality, the wholeness of life. Academic excellence is absolutely necessary, but a school includes much more than that. It is a place where both the teacher and the student explore, not only the outer world, the world of knowledge, but also their own thinking, their own behavior.”
In an age of faceless communication, exposure, exploration, interaction, learning through search engines and social websites like facebook, twitter, hi 5 etc., the purpose of education still stands perennially valid as that of bringing to fruition all the potential that is there within a human being.
With knowledge super highways dotting and defining the landscape and terrain of todays education, an attitude of inquiry, research, and questioning are key to a student’s engagement in the learning process. Prof. J Bronowski, the author of ‘Ascent of Man’ very pertinently states, “ It is important that students bring a certain irreverence to their studies: they are not here to worship what is known, but to question it”
