It is a indeed a touching moment for us as we share the success of a tiny seed Sown 15 years back named City Pride School. In these fifteen years, we have travelled a long distance, crossed a lot of hurdles, learnt from mistakes but never compromised with our final objective.
We strongly believe that unlike colleges and universities, schools are the foundations where the moulds are made. Fourteen long years of right schooling can transform a child into a confident, responsible and capable youth of tomorrow and we all as school, teachers and parents, are those privileged ones who can drive this transformation.
Infrastructure, Curriculum, teaching learning, and evaluation are the pillars of education and are all linked with a common thread of creativity and out of box thinking. Our school children belong to Generation Z that is, the children born after year 2000. These children are born with technology and they assume that every problem is life can be solved using technology. They need immediate solution to each problem and yes their problems are also complex to understand sometimes by our generation. These children if given a right track and direction with proper handholding can really achieve their goals.
We think an ideal school system should be characterized by flexibility which makes it adaptable to change. It should be a place....
@ Where Learning is an integrated activity and encourages children to link it with their everyday lives in some way
@ Which promotes thought which encourages creative thinking
@ Where learning builds capacity to create new knowledge
@ Where the “future” of the child should never take centre stage against the child’s “present”
We all have been noticing that the Indian education system has created fundamental question about understanding the ability of students and its effect on their career choices for future. The marks in 10th standard have unfortunately lost its power to set the road map for future career options and thus many times leads to false sense of security. The school education is also going through a lot of turmoil in last few years. Now the students have ample number of choices, vast curriculum and explosion of information.
All around us we see rapid changes in the way we perceive knowledge, we now need to redefine what is true success and yes we have the challenge to develop our children for facing the unknown challenges of future with strong foundation we give them today. Rather than giving too much emphasis on what to learn, the schools need to educate children on how to learn. Making them independent learners. They need to be given ample options to experiment on what they like and at the same time should be supported at school to achieve their best in whatever they choose City Pride school strongly believes that every child is unique and we give them a platform for achieving his/ her best. Whether it is fashion designing or animation and gaming or learning classical dance and music; City Pride gives opportunity to learn it systematically within school itself. Our Hon. Prime Minister’s dream of “ Make in India “ would be a reality when the budding scientist could put their head , heart an hand to innovate new products which are globally accepted . The Discovery lab and Robotics lab at the school exactly aims to achieve this .
The school has been taking hard efforts to develop the logical, analytical and quantitative skills of the children right from their primary school. The school curriculum is modified and integrated with the coaching of various competitive examinations within the school timing. Through such an effort we ensure consistent development and promising performance. Year on year we have witnessed that children are doing exceedingly well in these exams. This year the number of achievers in competitive exams have crossed century. Today City Pride School is the first choice of PCMC residents for their kids.Our second branch is coming up in Moshi carrying the same legacy.We are sure in the years to come, the bright stars of city pride will reach new heights and will contribute remarkably in the progress of our country.
