Freebirds Stories
The Significance of Being a Freebird

The word education is derived from the Latin word “educare” which means ‘bring up’ and “educere” which means ‘bring forth’. Hence, education is the process of discovering yourself and growing through the acquisition of new knowledge, development of attitudes, values and skills, and learning to express. At some point in time, all of us have engaged in a chit-chat, discussion or even argument about what our education has and has not given us. Brought up and groomed in the same system, we know that most things we were not able to learn or explore were not because of any limitation in our capabilities but simply because of the ignorance of possibilities. Our learning has been based mostly based on imbibing rather than experiencing, doing rather than being, executing rather than creating. On top of that, there is immense pressure in our lives today to deliver on the standards being set and transformed day in and out by our societies, schools, corporate jobs, goals and responsibilities. In such an environment, Freebirds is intended to be a breath of fresh air.

"The joy of learning is as indispensable in study as breathing is in running." - Simone Weil
