You can’t teach everything you want to teach, you can teach only what you are. A school is an institution which enables the transcending of culture to the generations over. Hence, a school cannot be put in isolation, rather it should align with the society, its life, environment and culture.

- LEARNING TO BE: Learning to be to provide self analytical skills and social skills to enable the learner to develop potential psycho-social, affective as well as physical well being for an all round complete personality.
- LEARNING TO LIVE TOGETHER: Learning should infuse in a person such skills knowledge, understanding and wisdom to expose him to the values implicit within human rights and democratic principles at all levels of society. Education then becomes EDUCARE to make it possible ‘learning withinthe treasure’ within a reality.

- .CCE: Education is a life long process. Home is the first school for every child. The new approach to wholesome development of a child is dealt through the CCE form of evaluation which is non threatening and inclusive in nature covering both scholastic and Co-scholastic aspects. The introduction of CCE by the CBSE marks a Paradigm shift in the approach to education and the manner in which student are assessed and evaluated. The teacher’s role has become more of a facilitator than the provider of knowledge in a dictatorial manner.
The CCE approach has transformed the Classrooms to a place of experimentation where constructivism and creativity give opportunity for learners to be active participants rather than being a passive listener. The new system inculcates in a child the love for all round development by putting special emphasis on social, cultural, moral, physical and environmental arenas. It reduces strain and anxiety and enables the learner to identify and manage stress and strains. It also lay stress on personality development and love for nature. The attitude of an individual which is more valued than aptitude is also put under observation and evaluation, hereby creating avenues for positive feedback in periodicity for a better development and change.
