" children must be taught how to think not what to think"
Dear Students, Teachers and Parents,
Just read this message,
Couple of students and their teacher were walking along a forest path. At some point, they came across a large tree branch on the ground in front of them. The teacher asked his students, “If I try, do you think I could move that branch?” students replied, “We are sure you can, if you use all your strength.” The teacher tried his best to lift or push the branch, but he was not strong enough and he couldn't move it. He said, with disappointment, “You were wrong, students. I can't move it.” “Try again with all your strength,” replied his students. Again, the teacher tried hard to push the branch. He struggled but it did not move. “Students, I cannot do it,” said the teacher. Finally, his students said, "Sir, we advised you to use 'all your strength'. You didn't ask for our help.”
Moral: Our real strength lies not in independence, but in interdependence. No individual person has all the strengths, all the resources and all the stamina required for the complete blossoming of their vision. To ask for help and support when we need it is not a sign of weakness, it is a sign of wisdom.
