Sun Valley International School
Sun Valley International School
The school years are time for growth, challenge and discovery. At Sun Valley, we encourage and prepare students to participate fully, to take risks, to be self advocates and to create lasting memories and relationships with peers and staff. Our goal is to provide and enriching, engaging and challenging curriculum that will prepare students for success while at school and for the years that follow. We believe that students, parents, and teachers all play a vital role in helping students reach their greatest potential. Students are encouraged to take advantage of the many resources and opportunities available to them like the libraries, computer labs, student council, peer buddies, team building activities, school academic and athletic offerings. Parents can checks academic progress regularly via our parent portal and can access information about school events on our website.
At Sun Valley, we recognize that social/emotional development is as essential to student success as academics. I also take this moment to state that active parents participation is essential to our success. Teachers provide a nurturing environment in which young adolescents can learn and thrive. Their work, in partnership with our parent community, has and will continue to support us to fulfill our school mission.
I also take this moment to express my concern over societal phenomena in which the youth is consumed today. In this mundane race to success we often tend to ignore the grandness in little things. Often the most beautiful and precious elements are right there in front of us but we overlook them because success today is labeled and stereotyped. We are so used to it being wrapped in a particular packaging that any abstraction from the usual turns us blind. I urge all my fellow educators to take a moment to observe the finer details of life. Success is not determined from your ability in not failing but from your ability to learn. Failures become failures when we don't learn from them, otherwise it is called lesson. Human ability to engage, look back, evaluate and bounce back with remedial measures determines its growth and prosperity .I wish for a tomorrow where children just don't strive to be successful in terms of wealth but prosper and empower in terms of good values, thoughts and action.
We also aim to propagate the mission of cleanliness through Swachch Bharat Abhiyaan and promote awareness on health and sanitation. What is good in education if an educated person litters the road and an uneducated person picks it up and puts in the bin! The school, the parents and the society need to work as an integrated whole to ensure the success in such social endeavour otherwise we all shall fail in our greener and cleaner India.
The true purpose of education is to strengthen character in younger generation which is the answer to any of the problems that people face today. May the true education carry the message of serenity, humility and human compassion and wipe out the moral chaos prevailing in our society.
Written in good faith.
