Change is a must. From the ‘best’ practice within a system to ‘next’ practice that questions the system itself, there is much scope for growth. What could ‘next’ practice in education be? Why?
CPA (Central Public Academy) has already been involved in ‘next’ practice in the form of developing its ideas in the education system, and by making its vision central to the school’s innovation process, i.e. , seeking new and different ways to inspire every child to become both good and smart. This vision has been articulated in the form of goals and outcomes for each of the four stage of education as environments of a child’s education: Pre-Primary, Primary, Junior (Middle) and Senior.
Every year is an opportunity to strengthen our focus and efforts that began two sessions ago for the Pre-Primary children have spotlighted music integration, languages of encouragement, science experiments, phonics, field trips and role plays to teach manners and courtesy.
These efforts are beginning to show results in the form of increased creativity of the children and teachers and more joyful learning all around.
Indeed, pre-primary years are the most important foundation years for later life. They must remain our most important focus.
We want to see a mighty tree within each child and we want to provide it the best conditions for its full potential to be realized. If we visualize a good outcome, we will get a good outcome.
Yes, they can!
All children deserve the best.
