Educating every child on a plane of equality
Children as it is rightly said are a gift from God. As such every child in this world is entitled to all the essential facilities and blessings of this world.
We at Mahima , believe that our calling towards childrens’ education, necessitates that we give equal opportunity in education to every child who is placed in our hands by the Lord.
The door of Mahima is open to all spheres of society, be it underprivileged and weaker sections, those with physical or learning disabilities and all others who reach our doorstep. All the children who study under our roof are treated equally and provided with equal opportunities of Learning and Development.
In accordance with the motto of our school which says “Train up a child in the way he must go and when he is old he will not depart from it” Proverbs 22: 26, every child in Mahima is taught during his/her journey of schooling with emphasis on character formation and strong social and moral values so as to equip each child to be a future leader of our nation.
Mahima International Christian School was started on 15th July 1996. The school has been on a long journey of 25 years over hills, valleys and plains. Enroute we have helped many a student disembark onto a firm foundation once they have completed that 13 years of schooling with us. Our past students are now spread over a large number of professions putting into practice what they have learnt at Mahima which is is to be of service to others, not to be served.
As our journey in educating children continues ahead, we continue striving to provide all our students with an all round education in academics, sports, character development and moral values in order to build up meritorious future adult citizens of our nation.
At Mahima, we firmly believe that the support and encouragement of parents and guardians greatly enhances the performance of students in school. Our school encourages parents and guardians to play an active role in their child’s education through regular communication with teachers and visits to the school. The policy followed at Mahima for every child’s development revolves around the following areas of character building :
In line with the saying, ” All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy and Jill a dull girl”, our children are encouraged to participate in regular outdoor sports activities for their physical development and well being.
Every child is made to participate in sports activities conducted every week by the school. Whether the children excel or not in any sport is not the criteria, however participation, team spirit and physical fitness is promoted through sports and physical exercise.
Those children who excel and show promise in reaching high levels in a sport are given specialized training and coaching in the sport.
Our aim in Mahima is to help and encourage every child to become a thinking and knowledgeable individual.
A child’s power of reasoning is developed in order to enable him/her to arrive at solutions thus enabling every child to use this built up ability lifelong.
As opposed to rote learning, a child is encouraged to express himself/herself it’s own words so as to build up its own power of expression.
Children are allowed to express their views and ask doubts freely in class. A child is given the support required to develop his/her talents so as to gain in confidence and become mentally strong.
Aristotle the Greek Philosopher has characterized Man as a ‘social being.’ By this he implies that every human being has the need to live and blend with others.
At Mahima we help and guide our children to become kind and considerate human beings who are sensitive to the feelings and needs to others. The children are trained to be ‘Servant Leader’s to serve and help their peers rather than ‘Monitors” to wield power over others.
The positive traits of cooperation, service, friendliness and sharing are inculcated in our children through day to day practice and example.
We are a Christian School. Keeping in tune with this feature, we believe that an integral part of a child’s education comprises of his/her spiritual development.
We emphasize on teaching children to build up their faith and trust in God. We also instill moral values like obedience to parents, love for brothers and sisters and helping friends in need, in our students.
Our children are taught not to hate but to love others, not to be served but to serve, to give, share and live in harmony with everyone, placing the needs of others above themselves.
These principles are taught to the children in practical ways using references from the Holy Bible.
