Principal's Note

 We aim to give the very best to every child, to tailor the attention and coaching received based on the different characters and backgrounds of each child.  We believe every child is different and all children learn in different ways, at their own pace.

Etiquette and basic old fashioned manners are important here.  Children learn respect for each other’s right to their own space.  They learn to be independent, to do things for themselves and to perform the same functions in their own home.

 We hope to provide your child with the most important lessons in life, to be remembered and carried out throughout his/her lifetime.  We aim to create not only children who excel academically, but children who will grow up to become good citizens of the world.

I am reminded of a very famous piece what was reviewed by Robert Fulghum that became a classic.  I’ve summarized excerpts of this piece to share.

This essay breaks the standard rule that important things are supposed to be difficult to understand.  The simple rules in life that we learn in Kindergarten come up again and again in our lives as long as we live.  In far more complex forms to be sure  -  lectures, politics, courts of law, company rules and handbooks.   Across our lives we will wrestle with questions of right and wrong, good or bad, truth and lies.  Again and again and yet again, we come back to the place where we first learnt basics of being a citizen of the world, simple rules of life that were taught to us – in Kindergarten.

·            AND  remember the Dick and Jane books and the first word you learned – the biggest word of all – LOOK

Take any one of these items and extrapolate it into sophisticated adult terms and apply it to your family life or your work or your government or your world and it holds true and clear and firm.
