Warm greetings and wishes from this end. As the new academic year, has begun, let me take hold of this opportunity to share a befitting thought and a thought provoking quote of Arnold Benet. “The chief beauty about time is that you cannot waste it in advance. The next year, the next day, the next hour are lying ready for you, as perfect, as unspoiled, as if you had never wasted or misapplied a single moment in all your life. You can turn over a new leaf every hour if you choose.”
Each new school year brings joy, excitement, and anticipation for the many great opportunities our children will experience at Sunrise English Private School. We consistently work to achieve academic excellence for all students, celebrate and appreciate our students’ diversity, promote a positive school climate, and maintain an emotionally, intellectually, socially, and physically safe school environment.” As we begin a new school year, I would like to provide a gentle reminder and a loving advice. This is in connection with both parenthood and teacher ship which I have realized out of my own experience over these years.
Let us work together to provide time for our children, to be children.The realities of the adult world will be there all too soon. As children grow and learn, they find joy and satisfaction in working closely with their families toward a common goal. Such is the case with the students at Sunrise English Private School. Commitment to the best for our children on the part of parents, students and staff is the key to our success with the children we teach. It is the hope of the staff that all parents will help us fulfill this commitment to excellence. School and home can work together to build skills and knowledge, reinforce values, and develop a strong sense of self-worth. We must invest our time and energies in our nation’s most valuable resource - our children.
In Sunrise School we strongly believe that the students are at the heart of all we do. This thought, no doubt urges each teacher to focus on providing research-based, differentiated instruction to meet the needs of all students. This individual attention and child-oriented pedagogy implemented by the teachers in scaffolding 21st century teaching-learning environment. This obviously enhances each student to be well equipped and groomed head to foot, thus stand apart from the rest, realizing his or her fullest potential. Our well accomplished, experienced and dedicated facilitators unanimously help each child become the best learner and citizen that he or she can be. The tailor made education provided by our school also ensures academic, social and emotional well-being. We encourage students to be inquisitive and "think" outside the box. We believe that "how" children learn is as important as "what" they learn. We know that the process of learning is vital to develop critical thinkers and problem solvers. Our students acquire skill acquisition through social-emotional as well as academic learning opportunities. The unmatched teaching-learning environment merged with the pastoral care and individual attention, stimulates all-round development and healthy thriving of our students in this highly competitive world.
Nevertheless, we value and appreciate Parental Support and Co-operation, for we realize that education is a team effort and parents are an important part of the team. As such, we welcome parental involvement to insure that our students are successful and motivated.
As partners, we share the responsibility for each child’s success. We recognize the valuable role parents play in meeting our goals. We encourage active parent participation, and welcome their regular assistance in our school-wide activities. We look forward to working closely with you as we provide a challenging educational program for our students. We inculcate and imbibe in each student a quest and query for knowledge and motivate each one to live by the motto-“when we Believe, we Achieve.”
