Principal's Message

 

Dear Students, Staff and Parents:

Welcome to ESK. Our commitment at English Private School Kalba is to provide a safe and intellectually challenging environment that will empower students to become innovative thinkers, creative problem solvers and inspired learners prepared to thrive in the twenty-first century. High standards and expectations for each student in regard to academic performance, co-curricular participation, and responsible citizenship are the foundation of our school.

Our classrooms are vibrant student-centred environments where inquiry-based approaches are balanced with direct teaching. Our teachers actively strive to encourage children’s natural curiosity and love of learning.  They take great care to support each child’s social and emotional growth.

Below are our beliefs regarding teaching and learning that we developed as part of this process.

We believe that effective teachers:

  • Create opportunities for intellectual risk-taking, collaboration, problem-solving, and application of classroom learning to real life situations.
  • Implement strategies that promote ownership of learning to students.
  • Design instruction to integrate a variety of innovative technological tools and resources to enhance learning.
  • Demonstrate ongoing professional growth in order to increase the quality of instruction.
  • Collaborate with colleagues to share and discuss exemplary practices, interpret student performance data, and design assessments that promote twenty-first century skills.

We believe that successful students:

  • Communicate in a meaningful way for a variety of purposes and audiences.
  • Demonstrate a sensitivity to the precision and nuances of written, visual, and aural medium through comprehension, interpretation, and evaluation.
  • Employ critical and creative thinking skills to solve problems and
  • Pose questions, examine possibilities, and apply skills to find solutions to authentic issues.
  • Make positive choices related to physical and mental wellness and
  • Contribute to the local and global community in a collaborative and respectful manner

We also know how important it is to build strong parent-teacher relationships as we recognize what a pivotal role the teacher plays in the child’s life. As a result, we encourage parents to be active participants in school life and we welcome you to be part of our family events and class activities.

Mohamed Hassan
