It gives me immense pleasure that this year our school is going to have its 70th anniversary. On this occasion I feel a great sense of solace and satisfaction that we have to some extent been able to fulfill the aspiration of the founders’ members of the school. It is the team work that has stood us in good stead. I am quite hopeful that in the coming years the school will achieve greater heights. The publication and release of this 69th edition of the school magazine is another milestone in the path of our endeavors and to come up to the expectations of our well wishers.
In each of our issue our primary aim has been to allow free expression of opinions and suggestions and let the students give wings to their imaginations so that they may be able to discover the best in them.
It is riddled with consumerism, materialism and utilitarianism some is here on the way education has suffered. It has lost its luster. Our aim is to restore some of our culture and traditional values which were once the part of education.
We believe that that the childhood is a very precious stage. At this age the children should be enabled to enjoy the beauties of nature, understand their surround dings and relationships, cultivate good habits an d well disciplined in thought s swords and deeds, gain as much knowledge as they can and above all be creative. If they are well equipped that way, a good career will take its own care and we and the parents need not much bother about it.
The introduction of five- star culture in the school as an imitation of western system is not going to help. The education system needs a radical change. We in JMS try our best to work towards this direction. . One thing which is required the most in our country is the right type of leaders. We try our best to instill leadership qualities in our students.
We do not stress too much exclusively on board exams results we try to prepare, the students for life as well as we make humble efforts to prime up the latent qualities that lie in each child so that they later on are able to love life .A life of mental and spiritual fulfillment in harmony with their inner self and with the outer world. It is true that small pools of springs near our homes may get us muddied legs but do not forget that for us they are the only source of pure water. For us they are much better than far off polluted lakes and rivers.
With these few words in the end I must thank all who have been associated with the bringing out of this excellent issue of the magazine a and finally advice the students to be bold in life an d never shirk from countering evil in their life.
