The festive mood sets in around this time of the year in India but we at Ecole have been celebrating our the remarkable results of our first batch of CBSE students along with CIE results since June. Ecole Globale International Girls School top schools in Dehradun, Uttarakhand. There has been a sense of achievement and acknowledgment of the hard work put in by our students, teachers and pastoral staff. As Albert Einstein said “Genius is 1% talent and 99% hard work” and we work on this.
We as a school have set a higher target for ourselves this year. We are thinking big and have plans to achieve those goals. We look forward to the continued support, feedback and suggestions of our parents which enable us to achieve what we have set out to do. I do hope that with this collaboration among all stakeholders we continue to create opportunities for our students to excel in all areas and not to feel limited. The students themselves have been bringing in lots of ideas onto our table to work with. It gives immense happiness to see such engagement and their wish to see Ecole touch greater heights.
Billy Bradley, Ecole Globale International Girls School Top girls Schools in Dehradun, Uttarakhand a basketball player from Missouri who studied at Princeton University and then went to Oxford University as Rhodes Scholar and has also won a medal at Olympics 1964, is a US hall of fame player and was a US Senator from 1979 to 1997. His life story is inspirational and tells us that it is possible to excel in all areas if we set our hearts and mind to it and move with determination and focus.
This year, during informal and out of classroom conversation with the students, the focus has been on sharing characteristics of an evolved personality where the emphasis is on self-monitoring, self-regulation and self-improvement. Grace and elegance are qualities we all aspire for in our lives. They can be practiced by becoming more aware of our surroundings and empathetic to people around us. I feel that such talks are very important as they help young minds focus on essential qualities of graceful living.
To our outgoing batch I would ask to look for inspirational stories- from Amelia Earhart, the first female aviator to fly solo across the Atlantic Ocean in 1928, who on being asked to rethink about flying said, “Please know that I am aware of hazards. I want to do it because I want to do it.”- to Malala Yousafzai, who co-received the Nobel Prize in 2014 at the young age of 17 and her immortal words, “I don’t want to be remembered as a girl who was shot. Ecole Globale International Girls School in Dehradun, Uttarakhand. I want to be remembered as the girl who stood up.”
It is easier to conform and go along with the obvious path but as Seth Godin writes, “If you don’t stand up, you will never stand out”. Very few innovations or heroic moments that have changed lives have come from the safety of conformity. Your challenge would be to go beyond with character and courage and make a difference. I know that each one of you is capable of that and we wish you strength and passion to achieve it.
