FROM THE PRINCIPAL'S DESK
It is in refinement and elegance that civilized man differs from the savage. The moral law of the
universe is progress and every generation that passes idly over the earth without adding to the progress
finds no mention in the registers of humanity. St. Edward’s School, Shimla is one such legendary
institute that has and continues to promote education in its ‘holistic’ form for we strongly believe that
giving a firm foundation alone does not suffice the requisites of development, a constant strengthening
and support is what is takes to shape tender minds into survivors. With the fast progressing world and
the ever changing requisites of progress, it is imperative to keep pace with the technological and
Novelty is the way of life and one cannot deny the fact that unless new comes it is not possible to shed
the old. However, there is a fine line between perpetual progress and the necessary Limitations to the
progress. We are of the view that progress in all its form and shape must be substantial and revolutions
never go backward.
As we drift into new latitudes of innovation and progress, by our peculiar prerogative mankind is
making daily advances and education is one such forum that cannot remain untouched by the wave of
Ezra Pound said, ‘Make it New.’ Thus giving a new insight to holistic education we have added a new
dimension to our reforms. St. Edward’s is proud to introduce the E-CARE SYSTEM. This is an online
management of school information along with online MANAGEMENT-PARENTS-TEACHERS-STUDENTS
communication system. Education is a three tier system with teachers – parents and students being the
integral support systems in bringing about creative progress. This E-CARE SYSTEM is indeed a tool to
systemize and co-ordinate the communication system between the management-parents and teachers.
It will also integrate and update the information relating with the performance and assessment of
the students. It will keep the developmental process dynamic and will promote a positive interaction
between the parents and mentors.
I am sure this initiative will foster better communication and understanding and will prove to be a
potent tool in achieving the zenith of education in true spirit. I am hopeful that with your co-operation
and support we will reach out to our goal of imparting ‘holistic education’ and St. Edward’s will continue
to be the pioneer in producing efficient and befitting individuals.
Fr. John Bosco
