Shirinbai Neterwala School, Manek Nagar, Tumsar was conceptualized by Mr. D. M. Neterwala to provide quality education to children, in the remotest area of Maharastra, within the context of mutual respect and joy since its inception in 1982.
It is run and managed by the aegis of the Trust called Maneckji and Shirinbai Neterwala Foundation. All the trustees are from the Parsi Community (a micro and dwindling community).Its aim has been to create awareness, develop skills according to the potential of the individuals and train minds to unveil the mysteries of the surrounding environment for the benefit of mankind, through a student centered holistic approach to teaching learning, which respects the individual needs of children.
The school aims to achieve physical and academic excellence, and consequently human excellence. Shirinbai Neterwala School originally began with a vision of becoming a seal of excellence in education. Students are not bound within limited academic parameters only, but are given creative freedom and direction to develop as useful, happy and self-reliant members of society. Through visual, auditory and kinesthetic learning, the school aspires to ensure improvement of physique, enrichment of the mind, sublimation of emotions and refinement of spirits. The school believes that all humans are born alike; it is education which makes them different. This difference in every alumnus is the goal of the school.
“It is no exaggeration to say that a human being without education is not far removed from an animal. Human being is neither mere intellect nor the gross animal body nor the soul alone. A proper and harmonious combination of all the three is required for the making of whole man and that constitutes education”. MAHATMA GANDHI
