Headmistress's Message

Modern Early Years, Deepali


School is a building with four walls with tomorrow inside.
-Lon Watters

I extend a warm welcome to you and your family. I am very proud to be the Headmistress of this wonderful school. It is a privilege for me to work with our students, our staff and our families to make our school the very best it can be. My aim is to lead our school community to enable us to work together to achieve our goals.

This is a challenging and exciting time in education. As the world continues to change, our job is to prepare our students for a life that we cannot yet imagine. That is our commitment to the children in our care and we at Modern look ahead with great anticipation and commitment to find even better ways of extending learning opportunities for each child. We aim to create a safe, nurturing yet challenging environment that is built on positive relationships; developing the whole student – emotionally, socially and academically.

We care for and appreciate each of our students as the unique individuals that they are, each with distinct talents, interests and needs, and each with differing learning styles. We provide an appealing and stimulating curriculum that is flexible and tailored to the needs of each and every student as we strive for high educational outcomes and personal bests for all of our students. Our passionate teachers ensure our students grow in confidence and capabilities and develop the skills for the rapidly changing, 21st century living.

Engaging learning programs that cater for individual differences and learning styles are devised and delivered by our skilled, talented and dedicated teachers. We use innovative techniques, rich resources, proven instructional strategies and engaging programs to promote student learning. We develop in each of our students a curious, enquiring and discriminating mind, a desire for knowledge and a set of skills; linguistic, mathematical, scientific, artistic, physical, emotional and social. We want each of our students to leave school with the values of respect, cooperation, persistence and striving for excellence underpinning all that they do.

Our students develop responsibility for their own behavior and the choices they make, and also a communal responsibility to assist their peers to do the same. Our students become strong in self-esteem and personal expectation and develop a healthy and respectful tolerance for others.

I look at the school and marvel how far it has come since its inception and I feel fortunate and proud to be able to drive further bright plans for its growth. We are an inspirational school who, driven by teachers, pupils and parents, strives to be better every day. With every new enrolment we are connecting and impacting another family. The core of our school philosophy and culture is working with parents as partners to strengthen the relationships that are built on mutual respect and trust.

I look forward to your support and cooperation in all school activities and celebrations to make every Modernite's schooling the best phase in his/ her life.
