The coronavirus pandemic has forced us to think about what is important in life. Increasingly, nature and the environment become more vital as part of the healing and balance with the current demands placed upon us by the pandemic. Part consciously and but often unknowingly, we gravity to nature. The smallest of green spaces have been rediscovered and revered. School is no different. Ignored and underutilised outdoor spaces have come to life with activity on many school grounds…
Both in the world of work and in the wider society, our students will face challenges as adults that we cannot yet anticipate. We are making MIS a school that equips students with the knowledge, skills and attitudes to master complex challenges and to thrive in a world of accelerating change.
Indeed, 65 % of children in school today will likely work in jobs that currently do not exist. This means that schools must not simply strive to do the same things that they have always done better. Instead, effective 21st century schools must develop new, innovative approaches, strategies and tools that nurture, challenge and inspire students to become adaptable, independent, purposeful, lifelong learners who know how to transform knowledge into action and to design, coordinate and engineer solutions to complex problems.
At MIS, we take account of these evolving trends and aim to equip teachers and students with the knowledge, tools, resources and facilities to thrive and excel.
