Dear parents,

I warmly welcome you to Vikas International School, today as we celebrate the success of our beloved learners for both GCE and IGCSE October/November 2019. It’s been a long journey requiring engagement, reflection, responsibility and collaboration. I thank you for yourPerverance up to the end.

In a special way, I thank you for entrusting us with your children and do believe we have produced global citizens who can fit in all walks of life anywhere in the world. The Cambridge international curriculum sets a global standard for education, and is recognized by universitiesand employers worldwide. The curriculum is flexible, challenging and inspiring, culturally sensitive yet international in approach. Our learners have developed an informed curiosity and a lasting passion for learning. They have also gained the essential skills they need for success at university and in their future careers.

We continue to educate learners from primary through pre-University along the Cambridge pathway and call upon your continued support. My sincere appreciation goes to the candidates graduating today, you have demonstrated skills of good communication, networking, adaptability, creativity and problem solving throughout your stay with us at Vikas. These are the skills the world out there is looking for more than the hard skills gained through education.

Preserve and defend those skills jealously and appreciate the fact that you are unique and always look out and stand out to be the best. We shall greatly miss you but are confident that you will always remain our ambassadors and partners as we struggle to bulid for a bright future as you know our motto is ‘Towards Greater Heights’ the teachers at Vikas…., thank you for greatly excelling in inspiring learners and guiding them through their academic struggle. You have been more of parents than teachers because many of these graduates were like toddlers when they joined us. Some were shy, but are now great ladies and gentlemen with a lot of confidence and success appearing on their faces.

According to William William Arthur Ward, “The mediocre teacher tells. The good teacher explains. The superior teacher demonstrates, the great teacher inspires’  Thank you for being such inspiring teachers to our learners . Always remember that true teachers are those who use themselves as bridges over which they invite their students to cross; then, having facilitated their crossing joyfully collapse, encouraging them to create their own.

Generally, to all of us, Education is an investment that we must all embrace. It’s a journey that we must travel as partners as our slogan goes that “ Close as a group and strong as partners”. one of our core values is collaboration and this exactly is the cornerstone for our celebration today and the future of both our graduates and continuing students.
