“For most students who are day-scholars, Emmanuel is a home away from home, a place where they are equipped to face life’s challenges. The opportunities available in our school are plenty and brings together many like minded students. ”
We come in as raw materials and at each stage our teachers mould a different aspect of our personality; constantly polishing and improving us. But the factory analogy seems to imply that students are mass produced, which is not true. It is more like a number of artists working on a masterpiece and, in the end, a unique and extraordinary individual is produced. I feel that the secret recipe of this factory has been unchanged in its 35 years.
It would be unfair if we mention the names of only a few of our teachers as the cause of our success, since each and every teacher without an exception has taught us one valuable lesson or other. Lessons which go beyond the classroom, Lessons that we will cherish forever, Lessons which made us who we are.
The great aim of Education is not Knowledge but Action” is my most favorite quote on education. And I believe that Emmanuel gives us such a complete education that we have the courage to stand up against injustice and the knowledge to know what is right and what is wrong so that we do not just think but convert our thoughts into action
