The School’s Philosophy of Education
Today schools may be established in order that children received education so as to be employed. And yet some schools may be established as a business enterprise. At New Brighton SDA School we believe that is too narrow and too low a view or aim of education. We believe education “is the harmonious development of the physical, the mental, and the spiritual powers… Every human being, created in the image of God, is endowed with a power akin to that of the Creator- individuality, power to think and to do.
The men in whom this power is developed are the men who bear responsibilities, who are leaders in enterprise, and who influence character. It is the work of true education to develop this power, to train the youth to be thinkers, and not mere reflectors of other men’s thought… True education does not ignore the value of scientific knowledge or literary acquirements; but above information it values power; above power; goodness; above intellectual acquirements, character. The world does not so much need men of great intellect as of noble character.
It needs men in whom ability is controlled by steadfast principle”. With such a philosophy it is the aim of New Brighton SDA School to produce learners who are “strong to think and to act, who are masters and not slaves of circumstances, who possess breadth of mind, clearness of thought, and the courage of their convictions”.
