The Study- L’école Internationale

The highest result of education is tolerance.

Helen Keller

Dr. Alice Abraham Chacko


The world that we live in today is so very different from the one we grew up in, the one we were educated in. The world today is changing at such an accelerated rate and we are leaning towards intolerance. I want my students who pass out of ‘The Study’ to practice patience and Tolerance. Here are a few thoughts that I would like to sow in your heart to take roots and bear fruits in the years to come…..To begin with…Mull over these thoughts in the silence of your mind and feel the impact….

We see in our common life that people do not tolerate often even the most trivial or very small and insignificant things. A Society in which the tolerance level of people is low could never endure at all, could never live a long life, and could never relish the joys and beauties of their culture.

In the words of Kofi Annan…Tolerance is the strength because if we don’t have the spirit of tolerance or toleration how can we survive in place where we are connected to each other?

  • Tolerance is a virtue that makes peace possible.
  • We are tolerant when we respect other people`s differences. We get along better with other people if we are tolerant.
  • Be aware that you can be in the place of that person who is being considered as weird and different.
  • Accept other people`s religious, political, and social beliefs.
  • Don`t critize others.
  • Don`t discriminate other people who have different abilities from yours.

We need to promote greater tolerance and understanding among the people of the world. Nothing can be more dangerous to our efforts to build peace and development than a world divided along religious, ethnic or cultural lines. In each nation, and among all nations, we must work to promote unity based on our shared humanity.

Before I sign off I would like to look back with pride and trace my thoughts along the path we have taken in the past ten years.Each issue of our school magazine is a milestone that marks our growth, unfolds our imaginations, and gives life to our thoughts and aspirations. It unleashes a wide spectrum of creative skills ranging from writing to editing and even in designing the magazine. I congratulate the entire editorial team for their hard work and dedication in making this dream come true as we march towards excellence.

In this pursuit of excellence, I appreciate our parent fraternity for supporting the school in every aspect. I also laud the relentless efforts of our teachers for giving their finest support in bringing out the best in each child. But I would exhort my students to be always modest, humble and disciplined, while being ready to expand the horizons of their knowledge and skills by dreaming big, hard working and above all…Being Tolerant!!! Then you are ready to take what the world has to offer in your strides.
