In the present scenario of greater competition for faster growth, education sector has assumed higher significance than ever. Scoring 100 still remains the main objective of School education. However, this has increased the complexities and challenges of education system as a whole and class – room teaching in particular. The patience is on the wane and hunger of quick success on the rise. Secondly, the fast pace of urbanization, reduction in open space in cities and almost disappearance of the concept of social guarandianship have practically robbed the opportunity of learning life skills of how to handle failure and celebrate success, from our children. Again, higher level of migration is making our society more and more heterogeneous. Where, it has increased the opportunity of cultural amalgamation on the one hand, on the other, it has also heightened the chances of cultural conflicts. The onus of synthesizing all these issues has obviously fallen on the schools to a large extent. Hence schools cannot feel satiated by excelling within the limits of curriculum, they will have to go beyond the contour of academic curriculum, to discharge their social responsibility.

One answer to all these questions is CEAT. It will not only teach the students vitals of life skill but it will also sharpen their skill for academic and career success.

C (Communication) – Communication is an art. Students are required to be developed in verbal and written communication. It will enhance their confidence of self expression also.

E (Etiquette) – Good etiquettes are the signs of positive personality. Students grooming in etiquettes are socially accepted and respected.

A (Attitude) – Attitude is developed in the environment when the child spends his/her maximum time. Positive attitude towards life is an important trait of happy life.

T (Technology) – To be a professional, a child is required to be technically skilled. Now technology has become an integral part of our life. It is the need of the hour that students should be trained to use the latest technology.

It is the biggest challenge of today to sensitize our young minds with the urgency and importance of environment protection. The real crux of the issue in this regard is that on most of the time society is more moralizing and less adoptive. Hence a child should be taught to be more adoptive and less moralizing.
