Message from our Principal
As the Founding Principal of Seri Botani International School, I would like to extend a warm welcome to every family who is joining the school.
We share your dreams to see your children complete their education, if they so choose, in the best educational institutions the nation and the world have to offer. So, we have carefully designed a rigorous, international modern British-based curriculum blended with global learning, one which we have envisaged as challenging and accessible for all students, irrespective of their ability.
A well-rounded team of qualified staff is being put in place to guide your child to achieve his or her best in academia while preparing them for the future world of IR 4.0, a current era of industrial development in which technologies and trends, such as the Internet of Things (IoT), robotics, virtual reality (VR) and artificial intelligence (AI), are changing the way we live, work and communicate. We invite parents to join us to prepare our next generation for this fast-changing and ever-demanding open and interconnected landscape.
In line with our aim to produce holistic individuals, we also offer your children opportunities to enjoy and excel in the arts, sports and other co-curricular pursuits while encouraging them to thrive in an inclusive atmosphere imbued with cultural diversity, moral principles and ethical values.
Pastoral care and student welfare will be central to our educational practice because we believe that it is essential to foster children’s emotional intelligence and to nurture their mental health. Children also flourish best when, among other traits, they take personal responsibility for their own learning, build a healthy respect for people and property, and consistently inculcate within themselves the practice of grit and resilience.
It is vital to me as Principal that everyone - staff, students, and parents – enters our school with high expectations. From the first day that we hold our doors open, I want your children to feel welcome and safe, excited and motivated to learn in the positive, fun and stimulating environment their teachers have prepared for them. “Holding doors open” here is our metaphor for the educator’s act of creating opportunities so that students may realize their potential. Indeed, holding a door open is also a moment to model acts of kindness and courtesy to one another; not as a chance to go first, but as an opportunity to express gratitude and selflessness, a way of saying “Thank you” to those around us.
A school can provide the support needed for a child’s educational development, but the family also plays a pivotal role in determining his future. Let us, as educators, parents and guardians, work together in moulding our children to become competent youths and visionary leaders, equipped intellectually, socially, physically and emotionally, to serve their school, community, nation and the world at large.
Seri Botani International School is a special place to learn and we welcome you to visit us and become part of our learning community. There is every reason for us to anticipate a successful and enjoyable year and so, I look forward to meeting you in Seri Botani International School soon.
Ladies and gentlemen, the doors are now open to admission and registration of your children. Be our guests!
