“Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited to all we now know and understand, while imagination embraces the entire world, and all there ever will be to know and understand.”- Albert Einstein.
I came across this amazing quote quite suddenly and realized how relevant it is for all of us: children, parents and teachers. There is never any point in the life of a person where he/she can sit back and say. “There is nothing more to learn, I can relax with the comforting thought that the universe around me is an open book. I know it all.”
Education is not limited to just the subjects/topics that are learnt in school. It is a lifelong process that teaches one to think intensively and critically. Even the curriculum is no longer defined in terms of what a teacher will teach but rather it is set in terms of what a student will be able to demonstrate. Our goal is to bring in a change of mindset through education. It may sound idealistic, but this is precisely our mission. It is what motivates the work of everyone at Harvest — from faculty to staff, from students to alumni, and from parents to supporters. It inspires our teaching and our research. It fuels our work with teachers, principals, and leaders in education both here and across the globe.
Providing ample educational opportunities is one of the most fundamental obligations each generation owes to the ones that follow and we at Harvest work together to inculcate the same.
