This makes me think of what is the role of education and school at present? What do we mean or expect from education? The word ‘education’ is derived from the Latin word “educare”, which means to nourish, to bring out, or to draw out. Thus education is to draw out and lead forth that which is inherent in every child through the process of learning…
“Train up a child in the way he should go and he will not depart from it.”
– King Solomon (Holy Bible)
Celebrating Teacher's Day

"The beautiful thing about learning is nobody can take it away from you."
—B. B. King.
The school is a place where individuals are encouraged to make choices based on truth and reality. These choices should lead them to find a meaning and purpose in life which creates an opportunity to uphold and respect life in all it’s fullness. The purpose of the school is to help individuals think and recognize truth and to challenge them to be dedicated to truth in all areas of their lives and to pursue excellence in all they do.
The motto of Day Star School is ‘Dignity, Equality and Responsibility’, which is based on the biblical understanding of Man.
We believe that man is a spiritual being created in the image of God with the potential to reflect the nature of God. Thus this intrinsic value cannot be measured in terms of productivity, success or physical appearance. The school is committed to uphold the dignity of every individual and to help children discover their self-worth and uniqueness not withstanding our academic performance.
All of us are created in the image of God, so we are all equal irrespective of our color, creed, economic status and gender. To experience this equality, the school has various programmes and projects in which children of different backgrounds are given equal opportunities to study, work and live in unison.
Man has been given dominion over nature. To create better living conditions, to preserve and utilize the richness of the earth to it’s fullest. To use his creative mind to discover the mysteries of the universe and to create a healthy environment not only for himself but for all the richness, the flora and fauna, that are God given gifts to mankind. We encourage the children to develop a sense of responsibility to society and the environment and thus ultimately to God.
