Ensuring each child reaches their full potential through an IB curriculum is essential, through promoting inquiry-based learning, cooperative learning and collaboration for students to work together, with a strong emphasis on “International Mindedness”.

About Me

As an educator, I believe every child has a right to education despite their cultural background, socioeconomic status, gender, and religious beliefs. We need to treat everyone equally with the same respect and diginity.
