From Principal’s desk
When I meet my students every day, I realize with satisfaction, that they are on the path to becoming well-rounded individuals with commitments in academics, extra-curricular activities, and social contribution. They are involved with an array of unique academic initiatives, such as artificial intelligence, robotics, design thinking, speech and drama, and applied thinking.
Alongside, we encourage them to participate in a variety of extracurricular activities that include fencing, archery, gymnastics, dance, music, arts and aesthetics, football, table tennis, basketball, and cricket.
Our vision and mission statements encompass an admirable and diverse blend of classroom education, physical activities, social presence, and contextual learning. Our field trips include visits to the bank, bookshop, supermarket, plant nursery, and the fire station, to cite a few establishments. We encourage our students to develop questioning minds. They assimilate knowledge through experiential learning and participate in social causes that comprise the ‘Rally for Rivers’ campaign, planting saplings and traffic education.
You can see their caring side as well. We take them in small batches to a nearby NGO, to appreciate the simpler aspects of life that is denied to some segments of society. We help them understand the more complex picture of life.
On our behalf, we bring the world to the classroom. In other words, global visitors from diverse cultural backgrounds interact with our children to discuss cuisines, languages, and customs. They are well exposed to the 17 sustainable development goals to transform our world, as part of the United Nations blueprint.
Above all, our students continuously learn and practice the 10 well established and essential life skills – self-awareness, empathy, critical thinking, creative thinking, decision making, problem-solving, effective communication, interpersonal relationship, coping with stress and coping with emotion.
The Empyrean philosophy goes a lot beyond the classroom to the outside.
My very raison d’être at Empyrean is for:
1. Encouraging our children to be creative, curious, and caring.
2. Nurturing our teachers to be compassionate, collaborative and contextual.
Welcome to the 21st Century Learning growth at Empyrean.
