Transforming Merishaw School into an Iconic Institution: 6 Key Pillars
Transforming a school into an iconic institution requires a well-thought-out strategy and the commitment of various stakeholders, including administrators, teachers, students, parents, and the community. The following are the SIX pillars that drive us in the fulfillment of our mandate of transforming boys into men of integrity and purpose.
1. The STEM Program Pillar
Adapting the STEM Program is a big step towards aligning with global educational trends. As a futuristic school, we are moving towards STEM education due to its effectiveness in preparing students for the future and fostering a culture of innovation.
It is a unified approach to addressing real-world challenges. STEM projects often tackle real-world issues, fostering a sense of purpose and civic responsibility in students. They become aware of global challenges and are motivated to use their knowledge and skills to create positive change. Employers seek candidates with strong STEM skills, creativity, and adaptability in a rapidly evolving job market.
Sports and Talents Pillar
Merishaw School is intentional about developing the sporting and talent capabilities of our boys. This entails creating a supportive and nurturing environment where students can explore and excel in their areas of interest.
Below are the practical ways we intend to see this key pillar come alive:
Spiritual Well-being Pillar
The holistic transformation of the boy child is the main focus of Merishaw School. Since its inception, considerable effort, time, and resources have been invested to support the boy child and guide them away from modern-day societal ills, vices, and distractions of youth life.
