Our vision has been crystalized in the very name of the school – Wisdom World School. The school has been named ‘Wisdom’ the attainment of which is and should be the true goal of education. Wisdom is generally confused with knowledge. We need to understand the difference between Wisdom and knowledge. Knowledge is the information and understanding of a subject but wisdom is the ability to make correct judgement and decisions. The source of knowledge is learning/education whereas the source of wisdom is personal experience and exposure.
Wisdom is an understanding of facts with common sense and good judgement. We, at Wisdom, believe that our responsibility is not just to impart knowledge for knowledge sake but to educate the students to wean them away from the ‘darkness’ of dogmas and conventional thinking and lead them to ‘light’ of reasoning and wisdom so that they can explore new horizons. The same objective has also been conveyed through the flame in the school logo which stands for : LET THERE BE LIGHT. The phrase comes from the third verse of the Book of Genesis. In the Bible, it reads :
The school has also been named a ‘world’ school because we want to nurture our children into global citizens with progressive outlook rising above the divisive thoughts of caste, creed, religion and other man-made barriers. I would like to quote Rabindranath Tagore who prays for a utopia
At Wisdom, we do not discriminate in any respect on the basis of caste, creed, gender, religion etc. We have teachers and students from all the strata of society. We celebrate all the festivals of all the religions and teach our students to respect all human beings irrespective of their background.
Let our children celebrate HUMANITY!
