Head of Schools’ Message
Foresight lays the foundation of a school, fortitude builds it brick by brick and erudition imparted makes it monumental.
RIMS International School and Junior College has been pioneers in the field of education since its inception in 2003. Undoubtedly,it has made its unique contribution and crossed many a milestones as an emerging educational institute by shaping the lives of the students who have passed through its portals.
“The world is my classroom” ,is what I have strongly believed in and yes – the learning experience begins right from the moment we are born until our time here on earth is up.
Let me give you an insight about the vision of our schools – what we believe in, what we value and what we expect our student to be. Above all else, comes the child. Our children and teenagers are the focus and we endeavour to address not only their academics but also cater to their social,emotional and extra curricular needs. Our approach is a holistic evolvement and development of every child honing their unique talents, acknowledging their individuality yet aiding them to work in conjunction with a team. We have the zeal for the optimum expectation drive for each young individual in our care and, and it is our responsibility to do our utmost to ensure that this is exactly what each of them strives for and ultimately, realizes.
So how do we achieve this? Our staff is committed, caring and professional in all that they do as teachers, tutors & mentors. We have a pastoral care system which is strong and focused on our children, with underlined emphasis on clear and open communication with parents and caretakers. We never lose sight of the fact that our children belong first and foremost to our parents, and so, in practice, we operate an open door policy of communication whereby if there is an urgent need to talk to a staff member, it can be swiftly addressed. We cannot guarantee to resolve every difficulty but we will put our utmost into doing so. We are flexible and understanding, promising to work around hurdles which may arise in the lives of our young charges. We, therefore, work very hard to ensure that our school is indeed a safe haven ; a happy place for each child. This is so important because the happy child is the child who learns and succeeds best.
In the life of a student, every institution stands out as a beacon that guided him or her upon their way. In the life of an institution every student is a treasure that must be guarded and nurtured to fruition. We, at RIMS, understand that it is our duty to transport the student into a world of wonder, of enquiry and seeking by providing a canvas of knowledge and awakening to their own needs and potential for personal growth.
Our schools in anticipation of future requirements focus on inculcating 21st century skills of Creativity, Communication, Critical Thinking and Collaboration in our students . To hold information-age jobs, students also need to think deeply about issues, solve problems creatively, work in teams, communicate clearly in varied mediums, learn ever-changing technologies, and deal with a flood of information. The rapid changes in our world requires students to be flexible, to take the initiative and lead when necessary, and to be innovative. This can be achieved only if their education is sound, inspired and novel. RIMS, together with the students themselves and their parents, will help to make this a reality.
Life, however is full of uncertainty – in a world that is constantly shifting, often beyond any predictable pattern, and the unexpected happens. Therefore, we seek to continue to educate and empower our young learners to look upon themselves as global (rather than as parochial) citizens, and be able to assess risk, analyze world affairs intelligently and adapt accordingly. As the world’s boundaries shrink, the future belongs to those with a ‘global’ outlook on all things. Recent world events have shown us how matters affecting one part of the world economically, politically, socially can have an impact on the rest of the world, often when we least expect it.
At RIMS, we are a global community extremely focused on preparing students to expect the unexpected to deal with the inevitable change… By sending your children to an International School like ours, they are one rung ahead on the ladder to being successful global citizens.
I can assure you that in my capacity of Head of Schools at RIMS International School and Junior College, I will leave no stone unturned in upholding the values and realizing the vision of the organization. Our success story is linked with yours so let us together make it a reality.
With Best Regards,
Head of Schools
