“Education is not the learning of facts, but the training of the mind to think.”
As most of us define school as a temple of learning; it is in the school you get to expose yourself for the first time to the world of fair competition, mixed emotions of happiness, fear, adjustment, fun, and loving, caring and sharing community. Besides the prescribed syllabus, in the school you are motivated and empowered to be lifelong learners, critical thinkers and productive members of the society.
In addition, learning is not a process limited to schools only, nor does it end with the conclusion of one’s schooling. It is indeed a lifelong process. Further, you should learn to accept unexpected happenings in life while pursuing your education because nothing in life is a cup of tea. So, in the school you get to learn to be brave and positive and will become resilient to challenge any demanding circumstances. In fact, school offers you the platform to prove yourself how capable and strong you are mentally in facing the challenges through experiences and peer and teacher’s assistance.
Remember, the people of fine character live by their values. They are honest and are committed to truthfulness in thought, speech and action. Maturity is shown in all aspects of character: the decisions we make, the friends we choose and the responsibilities we take.
Always remember to uphold your and others’ dignity. Be the first to grasp any opportunity that comes by. “What you are is God’s Gift to you. What you become is your gift to God.” So, have something to live for. Bring out the best in you!
I also firmly believe that the parents are your first and most important teacher. Parents play a vital role in your education.
Therefore, I encourage all our parents to take an active part in the education of your children. Get to know the staff, especially the class teacher and subject teachers of your child and assist where you can so we can work together in the interests of everyone. I would like the Parents to know that my door is always open to discuss any concerns or ideas you may have regarding your child’s education. I welcome you all to an outstanding learning community where everyone is dedicated to a high standard of excellence.
Believing that “If everyone is moving together, then success takes care of itself,” we embark into a journey of growth and learning with much confidence and certainty that with the help of supportive and involved parent community, dedicated and hardworking teachers, available resources and the most enthusiastic students to work with, we will be able to take our school to the next higher level of glory and excellence.
I look forward to working with you all as we help each other create a school where parents are welcome at any time, students are engaged in meaningful learning and the staff members are valued and appreciated for their efforts.
