With this vision in mind, I am honoured to serve as principal at Amethyst International School. My journey in education started in 1993 and with all these years spent in serving this industry with passion and learning happening at all levels. I come with a rich educational and leadership experience acquired in various international schools in Singapore and Chennai. To me, the position of principal is not only a job, but instead an opportunity to lead our school to accomplish great things. I truly believe, the role of principal involves many exciting opportunities associated with student achievement. However, most importantly, my personal and professional goal is to provide children at Amethyst with the best educational experience possible – one that will build a foundation for life-long learning.
My mission as principal is to always put children first; to say – Yes, I can! Dream, Discover, Develop and Deliver! My belief is that all students have the ability to learn, but are different, and it is our duty to support all of their needs. As educators, we need to discover how each child learns in order to modify our instruction to support diverse learning styles. I also want all children to love school! My passion for education along with the enthusiasm and creative thinking of my staff will always be evident in our day to day activities. In this collaborative effort, we want children to succeed in life with all life skills cultured at our school.
Our school will be a place where students want to learn and have fun. I promise to provide a learning environment that is positive, safe, and caring. My aim is to always invest time in getting to know the Amethyst school community – the students, parents, families, teachers, staff, and community members as well as to provide our students the essentials needed for success in a safe and warm environment. Our staff will work together with the priority of having every student’s best interest at heart.
My message to all parents is to stay involved by staying in contact with your child’s teacher. Our expectations will be to consistently make sure you are aware of your child’s progress, and we will answer any questions or concerns you have at any time. I strongly believe that this form of two-way monitoring and team effort will help ensure the success of your child’s education and well-being.
I am privileged to be in this leadership role and welcome it every day with challenges that could turn into a learning experience for the whole team. The forthcoming year will be filled with countless exciting events and activities planned for all of our students. Our outdoor education area will be initiated soon to enhance the physical activities of our students.
I look forward to an interactive and exciting years at Amethyst International School.
