“Let us think of education as the means of developing our greatest abilities, because in each of us, there is a private hope and dream which fulfilled, can be translated into benefit for everyone and greater strength for our nation” – Plato.
At The Westwood School our mission is to provide an outstanding education and inspire our students to engage in both academic and enriching extra-curricular programmes. Our curriculum develops student learning and understanding, a culture of thinking, inquiry and reflection, resilience and independence, always focused upon developing the whole child and tomorrow’s citizens.
We initiated the Westwood School, with the vision to provide an excellent opportunity to the students and parents looking for holistic development. We have created an infrastructure that provides one of the best environments for learning and education. We believe education is not limited to the four walls of the classrooms and therefore freedom to explore and integrate, are provided as long as the learning objectives/outcomes are achieved. We want our children to have a spark in life and therefore we constantly look for people who are experts in the field to interact, share, exchange ideas and mentor them so that they can reach the next level.
In this current times of ever growing competitiveness, education has to remain in the fore-front to enable us to march forward & take our rightful place in the society. We at Westwood, will remain committed to providing our students with good teaching faculty, infrastructure, amenities, and resources so that they get the best exposure to face the challenges of life head on.
“Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited to all we now know and understand, while imagination embraces the entire world, and all there ever will be to know and understand. “ – Albert Einstein
Our imagination sees no limits. We intend to keep learning, keep growing and keep moving ahead to be able to provide what is best for all the stake holders (students, teachers, parents and all others involved) of the Westwood School.
MR. BHARAT DANGAR (DIRECTOR)
A highly talented professional with Masters in International Business Management from Monash University, Australia and Bachelors in Foreign Trade, he was a Peer Mentor and guided many international students and also was awarded ‘Highest Achieving Student of the Year’ at Monash University. He received Certificate for successfully completing ‘Leadership and Cross Cultural Communication’. He was ranked 3rd in overall college ranking and received ‘Certificate of Merit’ for brilliant performance in studies at Brihan Maharashtra College of Commerce, Pune.
There is no better way to pay back to the society than by providing education, which would create better human beings and make them engines of growth for tomorrow. It is for this very reason that we forayed into education.
The entire purpose of education is to provide holistic education for your child, encompassing – academics, co-curricular activities, sports education, life-skills learning, values and creating leaders of tomorrow. Our endeavour is to provide world class education facilities, and set bench mark in learning outcomes. The campus, sports and academic facilities all bear testimony to this effort.
We have realized that the future is abstract and unknown but the youth in our hands are real and can be moulded. The words by Franklin D. Roosevelt “We cannot always build the future for our youth, but we can build our youth for the future.” perfectly describes our aim at The Westwood School. Every child should be able to interpret, analyse their learning outcome, with the ability to think critically, to solve not just what’s in the text books, but also be able to apply what has been taught in class to real world challenges and problems with innovative solution to problems. In short knowing and doing.
In order to impart quality education, we have given equal importance to the software ‘our teachers’ who have been provided continuous teacher training by renowned educationists and trainers, in order to deliver real value education and excellence in academics. Teachers are trained not only to teach well but are also expected to inspire confidence and trust in their students and become role models. The School encourages students to learn about themselves and their constantly changing environment, while at the same time offering support and guidance as they practice decision-making and social skills.
To end my note, I would like to share a quote by Anthony de Mello “There are two educations, One that teaches how to make a living and the other how to live.” So at The Westwood School, we do not simply teach students how to make a living instead; we prepare them for how to live.
The seeds of an idea have been sown, and seed has turned into a strong sapling, waiting to grow tall and wide to bear fruits for generations to come.
