Our objective in opening this school is to provide an exclusive opportunity to socially and educationally backward children of this area. They are not generally exposed to the cross currents of modern and scientific education. Still they are dominantly under the cobwebs of a traditional society.
Further most of the educational institutions in our country hardly bother about regular upkeeps, maintenance, upgradation and improvements. They remain the same for ever. They do not adjust with time, development and new discoveries in technology. It is this negative aspect prevalent more in this district which motivated the opening of LITTLE SCHOLARS MATRICULATION HIGHER SECONDARY SCHOOL which will be good enough to make the children catch up with the most advanced countries in every field.
Experienced educationists, social scientists and other like - minded scholars were the brain behind this venture with an objective to mould young once in an environment conductive to healthy mental and physical growth.
A child's mind is a clean slate; it is also sensitive to absorb any microscopic good or evil from the environment. It is therefore important how best we imprint on the tendor minds of the children. Our observation reveals that most of our present day schools are feeding the children as poultry chicks, spoon feeding naturally hampers the thinking process of a child. Not only this, still fiction is over taking science in our curriculum. Urbanisation is also taking away every one from nature affecting the integrated personality development of a child. A child should be left free under observation and proper guidance for the healthy physical and mental growth.
Wild growth also yields disastrous consequences. A gardener is required to nip the staggering growth of a plant in the bud so as to make it look trim and brim. This varacity very well applies to young minds to be taken care of.
The present day turmoil is deeply rooted in their early education. The socio - political atmosphere in this transition period imprisions the children in utter confusion and disappointment. A right social perspective is essential in learning process to mould our young ones. Parents love their children and to realise their dreams a better educational nourishment with scientific and psychological approach is needed. In the course of study we will strive hard to inculcate self - determination, courage and an element of co -operative behaviour in the young minds to face the critical challenges and changes of the modern world.
Further , a complete secular education is required to solve the problem which our society is confronting today Most of the English Schools and Missionary Schools narrow down the development of the human mind by imparting religious education. They also create a class - society which will widen the gap between the rich and the poor thereby making them totally ignorant of the real man, Real society / and the real world. This will result in Tennyson's Lotos eater floating in a world of illusion and day dreaming. In order to avoid all these things we would like to stop bothering children with prescribed text books and syllabus. Text books and the so called syllabus are only a means to understand the beauty of nature and the beauty of the object lying around us with a subjective existence. We would like to make the children study nature which is equivalent to knowing oneelf, by means of free thinking. universal love and self development where the teacher will be only a torch bearer and not the good old man with a stick and prince-nez.
Since text books, syllabus and marks result in a competitive spirit which in turn breeds jealousy, envy and greed endangering the future of our country, we would like to divert the attention and make them understand about "Universal Love". We do hope that this institution for the LITTLE SCHOLARS will certainly fulfil all dreams for their future.
We solicit cooperation and encouragement of the parents in the up bringing of their children as the institution thinks itself and stands to serve others.
Location & Accomodation
To create a right physical environment good and spacious building is constructed in a calm and quiet place just away from the din of the town. Adequate furniture is arranged in systematic manner and classrooms are artistically decorated to create aesthetic sense among the children.
The Principal is the head of the academic affairs who will look after the schedules effectively throughout the day in ordder to improve the standard of education. Problem pertaining to academic should be brought to the notice of the principal for time to time. All the academic problems through communication should be addressed to the principal who is available in the office looking into the academics; every minute and microscopic things should always be channeled through him. His maintenance over the school affairs will smoothen the schedule regarding the curriculum, discipline etc. Parents are requested not to disturb the principle during the working hours. In case of emergency, they can contact the principal.

Pupils Self- Government
Pupils self-government goes a long way towards istilling a sense of discipline and responssibility Leaders who are elected in the beginning of the school year constitute the governing body, the school-cabinet -which is responsible for the dicipline and cleanliness of hte school.
All leaders should realise that to be a leader is special privilege and honour. To betray the trust and confidence reposed in them is most degrading. The class leaders are responsible for all happenings in the class during the absence of the teacher and should report to the Head Master or the class teacher any brech of discipline noticed even during the recess.
Once in a month a meeting of leaders and class Teachers will be discussed towards improving the tone and discipline of the school.
