CELEBRATING EVERY CHILD
Children, staff, and parents come together regularly to celebrate student accomplishments and talk about school happenings. It’s a fun way to build a stronger school community while we reinforce human values.
Our class assemblies are designed and conducted by students. Each class section during the school year gets the opportunity to showcase their production for parents and peers; building their confidence and self esteem.
active curriculum matters
Hands-on projects, engaging discussions, cross-curriculum connections, differentiation in the classroom and energising class schedules lead to happy students, better retention and easier migration to colleges and universities.
As open-minded learners, rooted in fairness, justice and respect for others, our students are sensitive to the impact they can have on the world around them. Our effort is to nurture ethical and altruistic individuals who will lead change. This in turn means seeing team spirit and belief in self as mutually reinforcing.
RAISING CONFIDENT RISK TAKERS
the limelight shines (on everyone)
We recognise the achiever in every child, because awards can’t really capture a student’s invaluable individual traits. We celebrate every achievement, no feat is too small.
Our students are celebrated for their unique, self-directed initiatives or participating selflessly in another’s. These range from unusual personal creative endeavours (a book of poetry, for example) to one that affects citizens or takes up public causes. To make these happen without programming is the greatest award of all.
EVERYONE IS A HERO
junior school is not too soon
What makes learning at Strawberry Fields an active, joyful process of discovery is that age is not a bar to shouldering responsibilities and taking initiative. Students seek out challenges, ask essential questions, and solve problems in inventive ways at every stage of their schooling.
To facilitate this, a more flexible timetable is in place in the Junior Programme, with formal period division being introduced only in Class 5.
The 3 Cs—complex problem solving, critical thinking, and creativity—are valued more in the real world than basic academic achievements. Our curriculum is geared to arm our students adequately to tackle these real life situations.
We give special attention to these difficult years (ages 10-14) of school life, giving students ample space and opportunity to explore, understand themselves and grow socially, physically and emotionally. During these formative years we don the role of facilitator, guide and mentor. The joint effort start bearing fruit as students support social causes, steer their passions and ambitions and turn into advocates, doers and thinkers.
high school: complex, critical and creative
Future readiness—emotional, cognitive and social—is at the heart of the high school programme. The goal of a humane, just and pluralistic society, requires us to promote introspective living. Students learn to embrace reality, but bring to it a desire to appreciate, engage and impact it through their thoughts, words and deeds.
IB has profound, long-lasting effects on students. It helps them develop critical thinking, analytical and writing skills and a broader world view. This is in perfect alignment with our goals for all students at Strawberry Fields, in readying students to be intelligent, sensitive participants in a world of challenge and change. In addition, students do better while at school and go on to achieve superior performance at college.
