The Westwood School has a dedicated “Centre for Gandhian Thought” where the students will imbibe the practical teachings of Gandhi’s philosophies. The fundamental purpose of this centre would be to inculcate Gandhi’s messages, in its staff and students .
Gandhi's philosophy and wisdom continues to inspire thousands of people across the world. Even today, Gandhian principles hold key solutions for many crisis viz. - social, economic or political. Few of the teachings for instance are:
- There is more to life than simply increasing its speed.
- You must be the change you wish to see in the world.
- An ounce of practice is worth more than tons of preaching
As a part of the School Excellence Center, Westwood will have a Spinning (Charkha) Lab where the students will spend one hour every week spinning the charkha & dwell upon the Gandhian philosophy.
