“Good work, like good talk or any other form of worthwhile human relationship depends upon being able to assume an extended shared world.”
The SAJS family keenly supports the pivotal, proactive role that an educational institution plays in the holistic development of children.
At the helm, taking the new role as the Director Principal of the school, I feel honored and privileged to be part of an educational institution where I am certain, every stakeholder is a learner and every day is an opportunity to learn and discover. I believe in preserving high standards with an absolute allegiance to strive, to understand and accentuate the educational process, using team strategies, while wholly concentrating on student achievement and happiness. Thus, as an educator my foremost role is to guide and nurture the millennials to establish skills, achieve health, respect, prosperity and fulfillment.
In my opinion, education, per se, is not just a process of bequeathing knowledge but a lifelong process which nurtures an understanding of moral and ethical values to guide the youth on the righteous path. Thus, acquiring stimulus from the school vision, I intend to nurture HAPPY children and create HAPPY environs that develop the imagination of the learners because imagination is where new ideas are created and progress becomes possible. “Imagination is rightfully, more important than knowledge” as knowledge is about what we already know, whereas imagination is what moves individuals and cultures forward. Imagination leads to innovation. As a parent, you want the best for your child and I am proud to be working with you to ensure that they are given the right knowledge and imagination to face the future challenges with aplomb.
The ability to be innovative and creative is also important to me. I enjoy being challenged and inspired by the people around me. Taking a cue from the school mission, ‘Empower, Enthuse, Excel’, I aim to empower, as well as, challenge the staff and students to also be inventive and ingenious in their learning and day to day tasks. Keeping this in mind, I wish to take the responsibility of nurturing our children’s dreams seriously and enthuse them, so that they excel in their academic journey. As it is rightly said, ‘The most glorious years are spent in the safe environs of school, where the wonder of first-time experiences craft childhood memories that will be savoured forever’.
I also am of the firm belief, that having quality, inspirational and passionate teachers is essential to a school’s success. To borrow John Hattie’s words; “teachers should build classroom climates where errors are welcome, student engagement is the norm, questioning is high and students gain reputations as effective learners.”
Learning is a culture. A culture of happiness, which has been overpowered in the current times with ICT. Technology is a double-edged sword and while we are eager to maximize the obvious benefits, we are treading cautiously and mindfully. While we certainly do not have all the answers, we are leaving no stone unturned in helping our children use technology responsibly.
We look forward to welcoming you to be part of our vibrant learning community where everyone is dedicated to a high standard of excellence. It is our privilege to be educators and I value that privilege earnestly. Our commitment is to lead the school with enthusiasm and passion to enable everyone to reach their goals. You will feel the vibrations as you walk into the school or meet our students anywhere in the world.
