Principal

Dear Students,

Welcome to Wood-Stalks, and I hope your two years study in the school will broaden your knowledge, skills and character. In Wood-Stalks, knowledge, skills and character are the pillars which support the entire philosophy of teaching.

To succeed, both in your council Examinations and in the competitive examinations, first and foremost you must be determined to acquire the depth of knowledge of the subjects you have opted. Being a student, your only aim is to learn more, and it should be your immediate, definite and chief aim to the exclusion of everything else. Success in your examination will be your first step towards attaining the cherished goal of our life.

Next to your knowledge, it is your personality and bearing that will determine your level of success. Sociability involves a certain amount of restraint on your behaviour. You must be polite, tactful, courteous, smart, energetic, active, keen, cheerful, and dress well.

You also must be optimistic. Optimism is more a matter of your general attitude to life, of always taking a positive and bright view of life. Optimism is an acquired and nurtured habit. To an optimist every cloud has a silver lining. An optimist sees an opportunity in every calamity, a pessimist sees a calamity in every opportunity. Lastly I would like to give you a few ideas and tips that may help you face your examination with a cool head. (i) Be confident. There is greatness and capacity in all of us. Confidence comes when we have prepared well.( ii) Never compare yourself with others. Don't think anybody else is better than you. Do your best. (iii) Be consistent during examination time, see that you don't allow any distraction to come in your way. (iv) Understand what you study. When you read a book try to understand it; don't try to cram it or blindly memorise it, (v) Don't study just for marks. Good marks alone don't make you successful in life.(vi) Picturise what you study. A simple but very effective way to remember something is to visualize it and save it in the mind, as a picture. (vii)Fight the tendency to copy. Have faith in yourself and mind you, honesty pays. (viii) Don't keep your goal small. Let knowledge be your goal, and the rest in life is assured. (ix)Never despair if things do not go your way. If you destroy 'hope', you destroy 'future'. Hope strengthens our will to survive calamities, so that we never give way to despair. (x)Plan a job not just for money but to serve more. Great men are not born, but they grow great.

While in Wood-Stalks dedicate yourself in learning and sharing of knowledge. Grow tall and walk tall.

Dear Students,

Deciding what you want to do or what you want to be is the first step in making a success of your study. The one indispensible pre-requisite of success is the will concentrated on a single goal. Having chosen your choice of study and having made your goal and having marked your route, what must you do next? You must take the first step towards the long march. The longest journey begins with a single step, and he who dares wins the long march. Success is not a matter of luck or genius; it depends on adequate preparation and indomitable determination. There is always a battle to be fought before the victory is won. In brief, to make your dream come true, you have to work hard, burn midnight oil, miss bit a of sleep and forego a bit of your leisure. Never mind yesterday or tomorrow, you must do todays work today. It is "by the sweat of thy brow shalt thou earn thy bread".
