You can teach a student a lesson for a day; but if you can teach him to learn by creating curiosity, he will continue the learning process as long as he lives.”
Clay P. Bedford
Yesterday we might have talked about creating “global citizens of tomorrow.” Today we would do well to recognise that our learners are already world citizens.
In a more connected, more social world, where students have more choice and greater access to information, schools have had to become more flexible and adaptive in order to meet the increasingly diverse needs of modern learners.
The shift is toward a more personalised approach to learning.
We strive to create in our school an inviting environment, in which human respect and values are balanced against academic rigour, and where learners are encouraged to realize their potential and to respect their own unique worth as well as that of others. Student success in both the Primary School and Upper School requires an ability to balance the responsibilities of home, school and social life. Topics such as study habits, peer relationships, and the spiritual dimension of one’s life can all become part of the student’s conversation with his/her mentor. The student and his/her mentor identify clear academic and personal goals for the student to pursue.
A mentor serves as an essential link between parents and school. Students are encouraged to discuss with their parents the goals that they have developed with their mentor. Just as teachers, mentors work in partnership with parents for the benefit of the student; therefore, parents and mentors are in frequent contact throughout the year.
We look forward to meeting you.
