Letter of Invitation

Dear Friends, Greetings,

Let me take the opportunity to introduce our institution, City Montessori School. The School, popularly known as CMS, was awarded the UNESCO Prize for Peace Education in 2002, the first school in the world to be so honored, in recognition of its efforts "to promote the universal values of education for peace and tolerance, at a time when these values are increasingly being challenged".

The social responsibility of a modern school is to make every child a gift of God to mankind, a pride of the human race and a potential light of the world by imparting all three kinds of education – Material, Human and Divine. It is, therefore, the purpose of CMS education, to release the capacities latent in the child, develop analytical abilities, confidence in oneself, will power and goal-setting competencies and instill the vision that will enable a child to become a self-motivated agent of social change...

Why Reflections

“We should not look back unless it is to derive useful lessons from the past errors and for the purpose of profiting by dearly bought experience”

The extraordinary amongst us have altered the course of history by resolving the causes of ignorance, scarcity and inequality.

All these ambassadors of human race were diverse in their approach but worked towards a common mission that is to refine human life continuously from a state of barbarism to an enlightened and disciplined civilization...

Ever since humans have inhabited the Earth, they have left the footprints of their existence on the sands of time and it is through the pages of history that we come to know who we are, where we come from and where we are potentially headed...

As Spanish philosopher George Santayana once said, "Those who cannot remember the past are doomed to repeat it." The past creates the present. Our modern world exists because of events that happened long before our time. Only by understanding those events can we know how we got here and where to go next. History is full of transitions that have altered world's story...

Law is the mirror of life and life is the mirror of history. It is impossible to understand law and legal trends of any period, without learning and understanding the real life history. The value of history is, indeed, not scientific but moral; by liberalizing the mind, it prepares us to live more humanely in the present and to meet the future...
