News from the Executive Principal’s Desk

| May 7, 2018

One of the things we should be very proud of is the fact that we are an International Baccalaureate Organisation (IBO) World School. This puts us in an elite group of around 360 schools world wide who have gained authorisation so that students can benefit from a continuum of education that can take them through their entire school career.  Our school vision is very closely aligned with the IBO vision. We make a commitment to teach our children in a student centred, inquiry based model. This style is not for everyone, as it requires students to be constantly challenged to hone their approaches to learning and to exercise higher level thinking skills. The result however, is an education to be proud of. Students that pass through all three programmes are highly sort after by universities because they have the skill, dispositions and attitudes to be successful. Our alumni have the capacity to be successful in a wide range of situations. The recent Alumni football match bore testimony to this. It was a pleasure to interact with successful, confident yet socially conscious former students. It is great to see the school strengthen in its commitment to the IBO Continuum and the progress we are making as a community.
