Message from Principal’s Desk
As the Principal & HOI of IIS Dammam, I am delighted that the school’s values align with my own personal values, including the importance of rusty, respect, innovation and a sense of community. I know that the development of the school over the past years has been significant. The future will build on these firm foundations focusing on the quality of school life, especially for the benefit of our learners.
The curriculum will continue to be regularly reviewed to ensure that it remains appropriate to the needs of our learners. The curriculum emphasis the acquisition of knowledge, understanding, critical thinking, and problem solving abilities for all students attending our school. We believe that every learner is unique and special and that they all have the ability to learn. We believe it is our responsibility as educators to nurture and develop every learner to prepare them for life.
It was Margaret Mead who said “Children must be taught how to think, not what to think,” and to enable this, our motto of knowledge, Imagination and Innovation is encouraged through a holistic approach. “TO MOTIVATE THE WEAK, TO ADDRESS THE AVERAGE AND CHALLENGE THE GIFTED” is the teaching vision of our school.
No, wonder, a student harnessed in such an atmosphere has every hope and possibility of becoming a responsible, balanced and a mature adult and is able to live in to contribute and supportive environment at home and at school. The parents are the most strengthening power in molding the future of children. Their consistent support empowers us to do more and more. I pay my gratitude to them for their faith in us.
Each issue of our school magazine is a milestone that marks our growth, unfolds our imaginations, and gives life to our thoughts and aspirations. It unleashes a wide spectrum of creative skills ranging from writing to editing and even in designing the magazine. I congratulate the entire editorial team for their hard work and dedication.
A committed and supportive management, dedicated teachers, caring and co-operative parents blend harmoniously to create a child-centric school. It is natural to find in this ambience, the intensive use of a variety of thinking activities, strategies and group dynamics so that the classrooms become alive.
Teamwork is the hallmark of IISD. I am very sure through collaborative effort we can achieve more to benefit our students who are the future leaders of tomorrow.
With sincere and warm regards.
