The word ‘Education’ has been derived from a Latin word “Educhere” which means to bring out. Education revolves around in creating an environment conducive to learning. Children should be goaded on to discovering their latent talents. Gone are the days when children were expected to sit around the teacher and silently listen. The teacher of today merely performs the part of an innovative facilitator who very skillfully presents a topic in such a way that it promotes a healthy discussion that is carried on in a class room, thus paving the way to experiential learning.
It has been the clarion call of the Chairman of GEMS to provide quality education to all children. This theme has been effectively fostered by an efficient team of Senior Management Personnel. I am glad indeed that I have been provided with the honour and I consider it a proud, pompous, privilege in being able to provide a platform for the children at Gems Millennium Sharjah to achieve their fullest potential. When a child passes through the portals of this great School he or she would do so as harmoniously developed world citizens capable of handling any situation the world deems to throw at them. The GEMS core values namely, World Citizenship, Universal Values, Leadership Qualities and Forward Thinking form the basis of all learning at GMS.
It will always be our earnest endeavour to involve our parents in all the happenings in the school basically because we believe that parents are part of the big family that GMS is made of. I appreciate the trust and faith that they have reposed in us and assure them that we will live up to their expectations. Parents who are contemplating on obtaining admission for their children, I encourage them to admit their children in GMS, as this is a school that will surely make a difference in the lives of their children.
The infrastructure of the school is of international standards. The class rooms are not only cheerful but also are in line with the most modern aesthetics. As these are the central places of teaching and learning, every effort has been taken to see that they are computer aided. Every one of the class rooms is fitted with the interactive boards that the teachers are trained to handle. The school also boasts of teachers who have been handpicked and have had the exposure and the experience in the field of pedagogy. They are also kept abreast with the new methodologies in teaching and learning by regular Continuous Professional Development programmes organized by the Company.
Given the right ambiance and the opportunity, children blossom into fully molded individuals with commitment and are empowered to tackle the most difficult of situations. The school provides opportunities for a healthy competition and children are rewarded aptly and amply. All said and done at the end of the day in a world full of turmoil in this day and age, children will be encouraged into becoming good human beings inclined to bring about peace and harmony wherever they may be.
With every good wish,
