We continue to challenge prevailing standardized education policies and practices in favour of more individualized holistic approaches that tap into enhanced talents enabling all children to be better prepared to live productively in a globalized society.
Our endeavor is to think flexibly, resourcefully, creatively and globally.
In our school we implement processes which foster student autonomy and leadership, encourage inventive learners with skills, understand and channelize the creative spirit, maximize liberty to make meaningful decision and develop global partnerships.
The challenge is to provide schools the autonomy to innovate and resist the pressure for more centralized approaches in schools.
Education is a process of self-articulation. With globalization, a dilution of boundaries is taking place, creating both interdependence and insecurity. In fenceless societies, all of us, strong and weak, majority and minority, rich and poor, feel equally threatened by the "other".
We play a great role in creating children, who acquire an understanding of truth, beauty, and justice against which they judge their own and our society’s virtues and imperfections.
It is important to look dispassionately at our own personal vision and mastery before the shared vision process begins.
• How do we communicate?
• What pressures are we under?
• How do we respond?
• What confidence do our students have in us?
• How much time are we ready to give?
• To what extent are we aware of the visions, goals and feelings of children, who we interact with?
We take decisions every day, which may have tremendous moral implications for the students in our care.
There is no guidebook or listing that can automatically sort these dilemmas for us, nor can there be, in a world of ambiguous interpretations and incomplete awareness of our mental models. It is only through study, reflection, and inquiry that we can come to understand the impact of our decisions.
Today, more than ever, we partner together both personally and societally to prepare our children to meet the challenges of a rapidly changing world.
Keep the faith !!!
