At the outset I congratulate the esteemed parents for admitting their children in our school BIGI. Being a BIGIte is a feeling of a global standard citizen. “Intelligence plus character-that is the goal of true education” says Martin Luther King Jr. This is what we aim at BIA Whitefield. We create in BIA a mini-world of learning possibilities and growing opportunities with the best of educational infrastructure and a lively learning environment that provides various platforms to the students to discover and explore their hidden talents and potentialities. Besides teaching, teachers also train every student in life skills to become the best all-rounder a Vishwa Manava-the Universal Man as visualised by great Poet Kuvempu through the ongoing process of holistic personality development.
“The secret of education lies in respecting the pupil” says Ralph Waldo Emerson. Therefore our quest is constantly aimed at developing every student to be intellectually nurtured, academically strong, mentally agile, physically healthy, ethically responsible, socially concerned; environmentally sensitized, emotionally balanced; culturally rich; spiritually humanistic and equipped with moral values. I strongly believe that every student is a new universe to learn from. Students are our purpose and the inspiration. The presence of students can make everyone younger. We mould our students to become visionaries to contribute to make India a Superpower. In our constant endeavour we assure that no stone will be left unturned towards achieving this. The pursuit is long, we need the support from everyone to reach the summit, hence I conclude in Frost’s words “I have promises to keep, and miles to go before I sleep, and miles to go before I sleep.”
