Aims and Ideals

As signified by our school logo, the school aims to prepare our students for life. We aim to found a school where teaching and learning are enjoyable, exciting and enriching to all. We want to create a secure and caring environment where cultural and religious diversity, tolerance and discipline are part and parcel of a hands-on approach to education. It is a fact that new generations of citizens need to be educated with the skills to solve the global environmental problems we face. Greencoast aims to teach our students environmental and health values that will shape their personality for life.

 

The school aims to provide opportunities to develop learners that are critical, open-minded, creative, self-confident, civic-conscious and scientifically inclined.

 

The school embodies a holistic approach to a child’s learning and development in accordance with the most important recent research findings. A cornerstone of this philosophy is providing a child with the skills and tools for coping with life’s many challenges in the 21st century. Thus, the school setting is an open, spacious and relaxed atmosphere where children are stretched mentally, socially and physically without losing discipline, respect and care for themselves and others.
