During my sabbatical leave, I had the opportunity to visit schools and have productive professional dialogue with educators and business people from Australia and Europe. We agreed that the important and clear mission for all educators was to ensure that our schools remain relevant and effective by building positive relationships with students in order to educate them.
With the ever-changing world and working landscape, we agreed that we should not allow numbers or data to define students or schools because education of students is much more than just academic outcomes. We need to develop their social and emotional competencies in addition to providing them with the opportunity to develop their gifts and talents as well as pursue their passion.
World thinkers and the analysis of recent employment and business trends indicate that the employment opportunities for our students in the coming years will be increasingly dependent on their entrepreneurial, communication, collaboration, networking and creative problem-solving skills rather than their academic skills alone. At school, we need to continually evaluate our educational offerings to ensure that we deliver educational experiences and opportunities that develop and grow these young minds into contributing citizens of not just their local, but of the global community.
At Trinity, we provide the support and environment for our students to pursue their passions, explore their creativity and unleash their potential daily. The teachers are guides and supporters on the side encouraging and mentoring while the parents invest their time and energy supporting their children through their learning journey.
