Children Should Have The Opportunity To Experience The Joy of Discovery And "Develop Love for Learning"

The entire aspect of Schooling today is undergoing a fundamental transformation, the world over. Those days are rapidly disappearing when few schools could “rule –the –roost” purely on the brand equity they enjoyed in the market place. Parents today critically assess the “returns” they are likely to accrue from their “investment” in their children's education. It is, therefore extremely important for schools today to define themselves in the market place. What does our school stand for? What can parents expect from the school? We at ROCKWOODS High School are very clear about what we want to deliver. We strive to produce young minds who would want to engage in the world of knowledge, minds that are hungry for “more”. It is our firm belief that if the process is right, the results will follow. At the same time, we are committed to develop and enhance “life skills” - the ability to communicate, to lead, to be a team player and to empathize. And most of all, we are committed to producing citizens with a secular world view, citizens who respect and indeed celebrate diversity, and see diversity as a unique opportunity to mould a strong nation. Our vision is to be acknowledged as an institute which provides quality education with modern teaching techniques with underlying traditional roots. Our belief is that all children should have the opportunity to experience the joy of discovery and develop a love of learning. To do so, learners must learn for meaningfulness. Information that is not integrated and related to previous experiences is discarded and replaced with the next piece of information. We do not believe in creating robots that demonstrate rote memory of course content. To us that is a waste of a child's youth and learning potential. We invite you to be partners in this wonderful process of learning.
