PAILAN WORLD SCHOOL

Education is a life-long learning process. Learning happens all the time; not only in a pre-designated place called the school. It happens in the home, between home and school too. The home’s and school’s mission therefore is to provide a learning environment and opportunities to the children as the learners.

Shaping young, impressionable minds is one of life’s biggest challenges. At Pailan World School, Kolkata , we aim to empower our students to grow as individuals with strong open discerning minds with a perspective, to prepare them to make a future.

Our distinctive academic programmmes and innovative teaching methodologies encourage students to develop critical-thinking and learn through enquiry and reason, to exchange thoughts and ideas, to develop key personal and social values, to take ownership for his/ her choices and to set goals to realize their own unique potential.

Authentic education implies an on-going, continuous interplay between the five moments of context, experience, reflection, action and evaluation between parents, students and teachers. This is not to lead to mere information but to appropriation, integration into the very activity of God within the created reality of our world but especially within each person. This then leads from information to transformation. The School by deepening a sense of wonder, reverence, creativity, fidelity, communication, openness and charity to each other and to the whole world seeks to work for the transformation of the complete person.

The teachers approach the classroom as one does a temple. Teacher-student relationships take time to develop and deepen and need a climate of love and trust. There must also be continuity between teachers and students both within the classroom and in the wider school environment.

We strive to provide an environment that is basically sacred, and has a framework of discipline that is flexible yet supportive, a freedom that allows students to learn even from their mistakes, to develop into person moulded by the correlatives of freedom and responsibility.

I wish to convey my gratitude to the parents, guardians, students, teachers and well wishers of the school for all the support, encouragement, co-operation and understanding. I am confident that Pailan World School will rise to greater heights of achievements in the years to come. This school educates and channelizes our students’ aspirations to be fulfilled. In the present and promising years ahead.

I look forward to meeting you,
