From Principal's Desk
I have great pleasure in expressing my thoughts as the Principal of Gandhi ShikshanBhavan’s Smt. Surajba College of Education, conducted by Indian Council of Basic Education.Started by Late Shri Vajubhai Patel and Late Smt. Leelaben Patel in the birth centenary of Mahatma Gandhi in 1969. Its purpose has been to examine, interpret and propagate the ideology and methods of Basic Education in both rural and urban areas. From then onwards, the successors have endeavored the goal of these great visionaries. The institution is truly committed, devoted & dedicated teacher-education institution. All the programmesorganized here are based on Gandhian principles. They are designed, equipped, interwoven, implemented and integrated keeping in mind the need to bring about behavioral changes in the learner.Accredited as ‘A’ Level college in 2004, we are deeply committed to a sustained effort in establishing benchmarks in every aspect of educational process. In the post accreditation period the college was bestowed with the ‘College with Potential for Excellence’ by UGC. The institution is truly committed, devoted & dedicated teacher-education institution.
My dear young students,
The Motto of the college is ‘Teaching to learn’ and ‘Learning to Teach’. Your role as teachers in the new millennium has become multifaceted and challenging. Teachers are nation builders. You will need to cultivate social, moral and spiritual values in children. Your role as facilitators for social transformation will require you to develop in children nationalism and internationalism; prepare them to be global citizens; develop in them self-learning skills and ICT skills and develop in them high emotional and spiritual quotient.To play this role effectively, we at the Smt. Surajba College of Education, strive to equip you with the appropriate knowledge, habits, attitudes and values. You should not only develop the necessary competencies as a teacher but also have a desire for lifelong learning and education for ‘Underprivileged section of society’.
