Principal's Desk

Schooling today is undergoing a fundamental transformation, the world over. The days when some schools could “rule – the – roost” purely on the basis of the brand equity the enjoyed in the market are rapidly disappearing. Parents today critical assess the “returns” they are likely to accrue from their “investment” in their children's education.

It is, therefore extremely important for schools today to define themselves. What does our school stand for? What is that the parents can expect from the school? We at JK Public School Kathua are very clear about what we want to deliver. We strive to produce young minds who wish to engage with the world of knowledge, minds that are hungry for “more”. It is our considered belief that if the process is right, the results will follow.

For me, education does not mean providing answers. It means equipping the pupil with the means to find the answers for himself and within himself. Education empowers students to discover themselves – who they are as people. Within each student is a doctor, an engineer, a teacher, a social activist, a sports person, an environmentalist, a poet, an author or an economist. I am privileged and consider myself lucky that so many wonderful students, staff members, and families touch my life each day.

We are partners in your children’s education so please keep an active and open line of communication with all of us at JKPS Kathua. The school’s partnership with our parents is vital to the success of our students and school. We invite you to be partners in this process.

It is our commitment to our students that we shall extend the best innovative practices in every sphere of their schooling. No stone will be left unturned to ensure our children reach the next milestone with great confidence, self esteem, élan and poise.

Here's wishing everyone a significant and remarkable journey ahead!
