Despite the rapid and constant changes in education, we still believe that children learn most effectively through relevant, practical, interactive learning in a stimulating, positive environment. Young children in the Pre Primary and Primary years need 'hands on' experiences that allow them to discover things for themselves. In fact, all children, whatever their age, need the chance to interact, to explore and express ideas, to develop problem solving skills and to apply knowledge learnt. Secondary students need to build on the foundation they have received in their Pre-primary and Primary years. There are new challenges and choices to make and school life becomes more competitive and pressured. Teachers and parents need greater wisdom and sensitivity to guide young students through these difficult years.

Education must offer the children of today more than an increase in knowledge and skills. At its best, education nurtures the development of the whole child, positively building the child's self esteem, helping them to reach their individual potential. Schools and teachers should be equipped to promote and facilitate personal growth and development of students through pastoral care with regard to individual abilities and special needs.

 

 

Curriculum Development:
'Child centered learning' is a well used phrase! Drawing on a wealth of experience and expertise in the educational field within India, the UK and Australia, we equip schools and teachers to make effective, child centered learning a consistent reality; where teachers provide learning opportunities that build on a child's existing experiences, skills and knowledge and to prepare them to be useful, contributing citizens of the future.

We believe in the uniqueness of each individual person as a moral being created and loved by God. We believe in the rights of the child and the responsibilities of parents and teachers to care for and nurture them as they develop and grow to maturity.

 

Educational Philosophy

We in Destiny Education believe that every child has a right to an education that provides meaningful, relevant learning experiences: an education that meets children's individual needs in regards to age, ability and learning style, as well as providing opportunities appropriate for their stage of development.
