“The aim of education is not to train children to learn by force and harshness, but to direct them to it by what amuses their minds, so that one may in a more better way could be able to discover with accuracy the peculiar bent of the genius of each.
These are the words of Plato a great philosopher and thinker ,has the image of an ideal person that "one who loves wisdom. Our Vedic, Scriptures have also conveyed ''Vidya Vinaya Sampanhe”, means the purpose of education should ideally be to inculcate virtues and character in every individual.
Education must be all inclusive, so that it imparts both worldly knowledge and spiritual knowledge like in the ancient Gurukul system. It must confer humility and morality among other things, essential for leading a good life and not for mere living. Enable the students to discriminate between right and wrong and equip people to live with a sense of well-being, free from prejudices and without causing unhappiness to others.
A country development depends on the peoples human capital, resource and good management, or governance, “In order to enhance peoples human resource, from early childhood children should be provided with a good education that will broaden their knowledge and skills. All round development of the child is the dynamic trend in the new educational system. The school has now emerged as a place where students acquire various skills. Effective schools follow a holistic approach to education i.e. an integrated development stressing on physical, mental, moral and social aspects. A lot of innovations are going on in the field of education. It has become child centered. With the same mind-set, LPS Group of Institutions nurture the talent of children by assimilating their innate potentialities like adaptability, innovation, multiple intelligence, mind power technique, memory amplification and leadership to generate a positive attitude and humanity among themselves. For these attributes, character building is mainly focused because every attribute or quality of a person goes into moldings of his or her character. A man of character is supposed to be ethically and morally upright, trustworthy and treading the path of righteousness, and who has imbibed high ideals, such as courage, a broad mind, compassion and intelligence. Abilities may get us success, but it is the character that keeps us successful. Therefore the curriculum is designed giving due emphasis on both scholastic and co scholastic areas.
Education must serve society as an instrument for fostering the creation of good citizens. The cultivation of a global outlook, a love of nature and a concern for fellow human beings and environment should be part of the scheme of education. In order to achieve this system of L P S Group of Institutions cover the all four distinct dimensions of the human personality beginning with the physical body, the development of intellectual and aesthetic sensibilities, the development of socially desirable moral values and finally values and concerns of the human community such as democracy, human rights, tolerance, responsibility.
The purpose of education is to make the world a better place!

The seeds of L P Savani Academy, Day Boarding were sown with the view to provide stress free environment to students where learning process should be explored and not enforced. We believe that students must remain updated with the current times yet their bond with their culture and value system should remain well connected. The Day Boarding is running into its fifth year and is witnessing growth in different segments with each passing day. We are evolving as better global citizens with the passage of time.
I believe that in the current milieu, all the individuals need to realise their sense of responsibility. It is high time that students focus on the CPR technique: Choices- Priorities and Responsibility. It is our moral duty to enable our students and guide them to make reasonable choices in their lives. Even parents need to infuse confidence into their children that they are unique and capable humans having the capacity to bring formative change in their lives. There is plethora of choices in front of the modern day students but they need to set priorities. To set these priorities they need the support of family and the school. A collaborative effort on the part of the school and family can only lead the students to take responsibility of their actions.
I feel proud that L P Savani Academy has been venturing with these ethoses for a decade now. We have always endeavoured to bring students, teachers, parents along with internal and external public on a common platform. This year we have even extended a step ahead by collaborating with international schools through the International School Award (ISA) program. The Sanskrit adage “Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam” meaning the world is one family has been realised to a large extent at our school. We are treading on a new road to cross culture learning and we’d be taking well planned steps to charter new routes of learning for our students and ourselves.
