What School Means to Me? - Mizan Ali

Five words that come to my mind when I think of the word ‘SCHOOL’-






I was actually transported to my childhood days while reading this masterpiece of Kavita Bhupta Ghosh. The expressions like Multigrain diet, convoluted madness, broaching the crucial topic and countless golden words gladden me at its extreme.

More than anything else, a School is an adorable place for each child whether a backbencher, a last ranker, a mediocre or a topper. Jacob planned to appoint a teacher who was perfectly imperfect for the post of a teacher but even a backbencher, a last ranker and the one who experienced bitter failure in school or even in life can set conventional principles which can be used as bedrock.

We know that School is a place where we learn and grow. It is a place where we make friends and memories. It is also a heavenly place for a child where he learns about the world around him. They learn to read, write, think critically, solve problems and think creatively. It is a place where they can be themselves, they can be individuals and the centre of the whole system and where they can find a place in the world. For everyone school is the first place where they are introduced to various subjects. 

At school, we learn math, science, English, history, and many other subjects. We also learn about different cultures and different ways of life. All of this helps us to develop our unique perspective on the world. We learn to believe in ourselves and we are taught how to be the best version of what we are!

At school not only children but even teachers feel at home. They learn, laugh, play, create, bloom & smile together. School teaches children to cross the milestones with courage and a smile on their faces. Going to school and getting love, care, support, and respect, is the birthright of a child.

I, as a student during my childhood received every bit of knowledge and respect from my school and teachers and now I as a teacher should be giving the same, to my children to build their self-esteem, courage and confidence. Imparting knowledge and holding hands with our students is equally important to qualify the motto of a good school.

Let's build a nation where people are humble kind, loved, educated, confident, ideal citizens full of integrity, empathy, resilience, open-mindedness, and committed to justice and equality. They should be willing to contribute positively to their communities, embrace diversity, and work towards the betterment of society as a whole.
