In an environment of shared values of non-violence, equality and unity; dedicated to creating a peaceful environment by treating each individual with unconditional positive regard and acceptance and within such environment each student will be empowered and will be inspired to reach to his or her full academic, emotional, physical and spiritual potential, he said.

He went on urge the students, faculties and families to understand the school’s vision and mission to create a conclusive environment for overall learning, progress and development.
