About Us - School Philosophy


In a free society, every individual has both the right and responsibility to make choices and decisions for himself / herself and for society. A prerequisite for every member of such a society in meeting those responsibilities is competence in the use of rational thought processes needed to make intelligent, ethical choices and decisions.

            If our society, as originally conceived, is to survive and function effectively, its young people need to be prepared to exercise their rights and their responsibilities in ways that benefit them and the society. Likewise, if individuals are to be able to achieve their life goals in a free society, they need to be competent to choose among the myriad alternatives that are available to them.

            In keeping with this philosophy, we believe that education is a cooperative effort of the school community, parents and students. Education is a lifelong process. All students have the right to a quality education appropriate to their individual difference. Dignity and respect for each other and facilities are necessary to create a successful learning environment. Formal education is an important avenue for effectively preparing students for life and to be contributing members of society. Change is constant, therefore, the school community must be prepared to creatively lead and adapt to change. Since students learn in different ways, they should be taught and evaluated using a variety of methods. Open and effective communication is essential and should be practiced throughout the school community. The physical, sociological and psychological needs of students and staff must be acknowledged and addressed to establish a healthy school climate. All barriers experienced by minority or disadvantaged students and staff need to be acknowledged and addressed. Accountability throughout the school community is the corner stone of a sound education programme. Students should be encouraged to experience a wide range of support programs and extracurricular activities that enhance their learning potential.

            The school believes that the thought and action process involved in taking intelligent, ethical action can be learned just as any other set of procedures can be learned, provided students are given consistent appropriate opportunities. The school is committed to making adequate provision for such opportunities and to the applications of these processes.

            In keeping with its philosophy that the purpose of education is to facilitate the development of the potential of each student, the School encourages the implementation of a strategic and continuous school improvement and achievement plan.
