EDUCATION THE BEST LEGACY FOR YOU.
What is the meaning of Education? The dictionary has defined the word EDUCATION as ‘an act of imparting knowledge’. However, the word has its origin in the Latin word ‘EDUCO’ which means ‘to develop from WITHIN to educe, to draw out, to grow through the law of use’.
Nature hates idleness, but gives life to the things that are in use. For example, if you tie up one arm or any other part of your body taking it out of use, that idle portion will become lifeless. But if you give the arm more work to do just like the blacksmith who uses a heavy hammer all day long, you will notice that the arm he uses grows stronger than the other one, more muscular. It has grown from within.
So, education is meant to make your brain grow from within. It should make your brain develop making you do more and better things than you were doing before you started education or before you came to school. Therefore, an educated person is someone who has acquired enough knowledge to know how to get whatever he wants without violating the right of another person.
For example, a good lawyer is the one who knows where and how to find the law whenever he wants it. A good student is the one who when the teacher teaches, he learns and when the time comes to apply the knowledge he remembers what he was taught and effectively puts it into use. That is what Tiggy Winklers School wants to see happen in your life, that is the legacy the school will give to you. Many thanks to all the mummies and daddies who have sent their wards to Tiggy Winklers School.
So for all of us students of Tiggy Winklers School, when you get home give mummy and daddy a big hug for me. God bless you all.
