We at Athena are committed to impart high-value education to the children and providing opportunities for their continuous development. We have a strong focus on developing the thinking skills of the children beyond the curriculum level. We believe that life outside of the classroom is just as important as the learning that happens within the classroom walls. We intend to continuously look for a variety of after-school activities to enrich the lives of our young students, and help them to find areas of passion and strength.
We endeavour to make our schools the favourite place for the child by providing a safe and happy environment, a caring and talented faculty, creative tools, and enriching programs. We believe that a school must be full of laughter, a refuge from anger and intimidation, and a place in which young people want to spend the majority of their time.
Creativity comes from analytical thought and reflection, from being an innovative entrepreneur. To become that our children in school must observe, assimilate, contextualize by correlating with the world they see around them, internalize and finally create – in thought, words, mental pictures and all other ways that they express.
Being comfortable working with peers, expressing and accepting other views, questioning and being questioned, being a leader and a follower, internalizing the consensus of collaboration.
Developing conviction in one’s thoughts and becoming expressive of it, listening and not just hearing, modulating in line with target audience, convincing and being open to be convinced.
To be sensitized to the needs of not only oneself but those of others. To recognize the have-nots and support them from being one of the haves. A key value that is developed in each student is the ability to think independently; to be an innovative thinker in all situations. Contribution to the society includes contributing with thought, to make others think and to jointly make it a better world. The contribution could take the form of knowledge, skills and values, thoughts, as also physical and monetary contributions.
Learning to be a part of, to belong, to own and be owned, upholding home values whilst respecting all that’s around – nature with its roses and thorns, and society and with its myriad forms with its different languages, faiths, beliefs, ethnicities, cultures and traditions.
Many of today’s families will not exist in the near future. But this era of unprecedented change bring great opportunities for creativity, innovation and entrepreneurship. The world is ever changing and the speed of change is becoming faster by the day.
