We value every team member as unique individual with potential to grow and contribute to the community. As part of our organizational belief in Personal Mastery which forms the basis of our 4-tiered Leadership, we strive to follow one of Stephen Covey’s 7 Habits of Highly Effective People of ‘seeking first to understand every individual before we seek to be understood’ by this individual. Our belief that every member should be valued also means that we should strive to respect different opinions or perspectives and uphold the basic rights of each individual. Mutual respect is the basis of every relationship between two persons.
Seeking the truth should be the habit of an excellent learning organization. In that spirit, we will seek to learn the truth about ourselves - no matter how brutal it may be so that we may grow – through Knowledge Management. We believe that only if we confront the true picture of ourselves – through real data and open conversations with stakeholders – will we continue to learn and improve. As purveyors of knowledge and values, especially of honesty, we must strive to uphold the truth in our words and deeds. Having integrity also means that we must stand together in any crisis with an aim of resolving it amicably and with minimal, unnecessary or negative impact.
As the second home for young children aged 6-13, we must provide a caring, comfortable and safe environment for our young to learn, play and grow. Safety must always be the hallmark of our care culture. We believe that we need to build a culture of care by first showing show we care for our staff. When care for our team like family, they will have the emotional energy to look after the needs of our little ones as if they are looking after their own children. In the same spirit of Care, we should also uphold the standards of responsiveness to the people we serve as part of the vision of Public Service for the 21st Century or PS21.
Following our motto of ‘Empowerment through Education’, we have chosen this value to underscore our belief that our efforts to educate every individual – child or adult – will help each individual feel that they have more choices as well as the ability to seize these opportunities. As the old adage says, ‘Give a man a fish and he eats for a day; teach the man to fish and he eats a lifetime.’ Our commitment to empowerment is demonstrated through our efforts towards holistic development of every individual that has brought us thus far to become a global benchmark for holistic education
Every part of the body must play its part well so that the whole body can grow and remain healthy. We believe that when everyone plays his/her part diligently and well, our organizational effectiveness and efficiency will improve and our students will benefit by learning more and better.
