Academic In-Charge Message
“Focus on the journey, not the destination. Joy is found not in finishing an activity, but in doing it.”
Learning is the process of constantly updating in an ever changing world. The first five years experience the most rapid changes of life and are critical in a child's development. Children develop rapidly during this time; physically, intellectually, emotionally and socially. Also, the earliest years of a child’s life are a key to predicting ultimate success in their school and personal life. The period from the age of three years until the beginning of Class 1 in a mainstream school is called the Foundation Stage of learning. All children should be given the opportunity to experience the very best possible start to their education.
Learning at our school is based on the fundamental principles of life; teaching the children to be courageous, confident, disciplined, responsible and loyal. Education at our school provides a foundation for a lifetime of learning and is great fun too.
Teaching at Douglas Memorial Higher Secondary School Preparatory is a two-way process; where the teachers first try and understand each individual child so as to provide them with the most easy and adaptable techniques and a conducive ambience for them to learn what is delivered. We believe in teaching by following the child. We strive to keep our toddlers busy with learning activities. Today the role of a school is not only to pursue academic excellence but also to empower its students to be lifelong learners. We try to provide the best possible environment for healthy development of young children by providing a carefully planned and structured environment in which the child grows and learns in a natural way.
Our motto ‘Duty & Discipline’ is our guiding force and we remain committed to our Endeavour.
I also take this opportunity to thank the parents of our students for having bestowed their faith and confidence in us. Your faith in us is our driving force.
I would like to end with the words of Albert Einstein – “Imagination is more important than knowledge, for while knowledge defines all that we currently know and understand, imagination points to all we might yet discover and create.”
