The principled book
of caring & curious champions

When the school started in 2014, we wanted to Inspire our students by making books come alive. In keeping with this theme, we want to share with you and the world a story of our learning philosophy.

We welcome you to explore 8 chapters of how we inspire you to make a difference.

Chapter 2


CARING PEOPLE LEADER

“People don’t care how much you know, until they know how much you care.”
- Theodore Roosevelt

A caring people leader takes the time to get to know our people's interests, talents and needs which fosters a community that supports and cares for one other. In an effort to build a generation of caring people leaders, we start by developing caring teachers who will take the time to invest in bonding with the students they teach by establishing a trusting and caring connection with them.

Chapter 3


CURIOUS EXPLORER

“Millions saw the apple fall, but only Newton asked why?”
- Bernard Baruch

The cornerstone of human achievement is curiosity. A curious explorer in the classroom pauses and thinks critically about what is being taught, then questions why it has to be so. A curious explorer at home is interested in how best to raise children to be the best they can be and looks for resources to enable them to do so. A curious explorer in school inspires students to think big and bold allowing the mind to be active and inquisitive.

Being curious allowed us to reach the moon, climb Everest, and create Google. At Inspiros, we want to build a generation that is not afraid to do awesome things. Only then, can learning be worthwhile.

Chapter 4


CHAMPION OF POTENTIALS

“Every child deserves a champion, an adult who will never give up on them, who understands the power of connection and insists that they become the best they can possibly be.”
- Rita Pierson

Research has shown that students who receive support from their families, friends, teachers and community perform at least 30% better in their academics and are more likely to be leaders in their chosen field. Likewise at Inspiros, we engage teachers, parents, alumni, and industry leaders to help shape the course of our students’ educational journey. We aim not only to place high performing teachers in the classroom to teach, but to also set up forums, workshops, and community engagement projects that will exponentially help nurture and harness the potential of our students.

Chapter 5


INDEPENDENCE

“It is not what you do for your children, but what you have taught them to do for themselves, that will make them successful human beings”
- Ann Landers

Learning is a lifelong process which begins from the minute we were born. It does not start in school and most certainly does not end there. We intend to create a generation of students who will carry on learning after formal education ends in school for the best people learn every day. We hope to create an environment that spurs independent learning, constant yearning and a passion for continuous development. Only then can we develop successful individuals beyond formal education.

Chapter 6


EMPLOYABILITY

“Over 80% of employers say that employability skills are more important than any degree subject.” - CBI Report

It is often said that today’s education does not prepare individuals sufficiently for the workplace. Far too often, we hear of employers being frustrated with the lack of professionalism and common sense that exists in the workplace. As a leader in knowledge, we believe it is our duty to equip our students for life after formal education. We are therefore committed to teach students the art of being employable. Practically, this includes workshops on the art of communication, interpersonal skills, time management, financial literacy, among others.

Chapter 7


The strength of our community lies in the diversity of the wonderful families who comprise it...

FINANCIAL ACUMEN

“Don’t tell me what you value, show me your budget and I’ll tell you what you value.” - Joe Biden

We asked a substantial number of people who are in the workforce what they wished they had learnt in school. For the majority of people, it was financial acumen. Learning financial literacy topics like Allowances and Spending Plans, Money Responsibility, Saving and Investing, Opening Bank Accounts at a young age will put the average student ahead of their peers who had not.

Chapter 8


PRACTICAL SKILLS

“Give ordinary people the right tools, and they will design and build the most extraordinary things.”
- Neil Genshenfeld

The simple art of tying knots or fixing light bulbs or setting up a tent seems insignificant and unimportant. At Inspiros, we believe in the absolute contrary. We believe that these simple arts and practical skills are essential in developing a well rounded individual who has the capacity and skills to positively change the world. Practical skills take you from merely surviving to actually thriving and we want all our students to thrive.
