From the Principle’s desk

I am indeed overjoyed to accord a warm welcome to each of you my dear Staff, Students and Parents to St.Francis De Sales School, Gangapurcity, this august temple of learning.

As we enter into yet another year of learning, my heart is overwhelmed with gratitude to all of you for your support and co-operation in assisting your children to explore themselves with new ideas and innovations through different means.

As we march into a new academic year I am reminded of a very inspiring story to keep our confidence and motivation high.

Once A psychology professor entered the classroom with half a glass of water in his hand. The students expected the old common question “was it half empty or half full?” But to the surprise, he asked them “How heavy is this glass of water?”The answers given by the students ranged from 7 oz. To 25 oz. But the professor replied that the actual weight of the glass with water doesn’t always matter but how long you hold the glass is what matters.

If you hold the glass for a minute, you won’t feel much weight. But if you hold for 10 minutes, you will feel a little more weight and it gets heavier for you with hours.If you hold it for the entire day, then your hands would go numb and pain. Similar is the case when you carry stress with you. If you think about it for a while and leave it, then there is no problem but if you think about it for hours, it starts becoming a problem and it becomes worse if you sleep with it.

I believe that this simple story inspires each of us to learn to let go of our stresses and never sleep with it. If we can do something about it, just do it. In the other case, just leave it and work towards our goals or else it just kills our productivity.

Knowing the duty and the responsibility of both Teachers and Students we at SFS aim to impart an all round and balanced education instilling in them self-confidence, importance of hard work and persuasive ability that lays emphasis on physical, moral and intellectual values with special stress on moral and character formation which together would take the student to a great hight and success along with ones own wholesome development of personality.

May the education you receive from this great temple, help you to overcome every hurdle you encounter to become a great citizen of this nation and reach the zenith of greatness in whatever sphere you may move in.
