A Message from the Desk of Director
S. S. Guraya (Director)
Dear students, colleagues and beloved ones
It is with great pleasure that I welcome you back to the 2019-20 Academic Year as we continue a well-diversified positive educational experience here at Guru Nanak Dev Academy!
This year, we will focus on addressing the common core State Standards through an interdisciplinary approach to teaching and learning, raising rigor in the classroom through student engagement, continue to build on our social emotional intelligence through restorative practice rather than punitive consequences to promote positive school climate.
Dearest ones – We look forward to the 2019-20 school year with excitement, confidence and very high expectations for students and staff alike. The academy staff appreciates your continuous support and look forward to a successful year ahead! Guru Nanak Dev Academy is a school that boasts about our parent’s involvement. Your support has been tremendous! I encourage you to participate and take an active role in your ward’s education.
Aristotle has rightly said, “The roots of education are bitter but the fruit is sweet.” Students, you have lots of potentials to make the impossible possible and always remember successful are those who never give up to difficult situations and problems. Learn from your mistakes and accomplish your goals for future. The foremost thing is to fix up your goal, focus on it, Patience, Perfection and Perseverance are the keys to success. Work hard, be patient and certainly you shall achieve your goal.
The only winner is that person who says no surrender……who always fights with the circumstances and challenges and works hard to get what he desires….. I wish such strong focus and great willpower for you. No lesson is difficult once you start reading it, no goal is difficult to accomplish once you start working hard for you. All you need to do is take the first step.
We at Guru Nanak Dev Academy are determined to secure an outstanding future for the students and school. Our aims are to build on the strength, develop a greater focus on enhancing the quality of teaching and learning and take the school forward on a journey to outstanding in all areas. I am also committed to work with the staff, students and the local community to transform learning aspirations and opportunities for our students.
It is our firm belief that an effective teacher can create opportunities for intellectual risk-taking, collaboration, problem solving and application of classroom learning to real life situation. He can implement strategies that promote ownership of learning to the students.
It is confirmed that every child has hidden potential to be uncovered and nurtured and certainly we, the team of teachers, together can unlock this potential. A success student can communicate in a meaningful way for a variety of purposes and audiences. He is able to employ critical and creative thinking skill to solve problems. He can contribute to the local and global community in a collaborative and respectful sense. So let us provide and develop caring, supportive environment so that expectations and high aspiration for every child may be secured.
I pray to benevolent Almighty to shower his benign benedictions upon you. May His choicest blessings remain helping you everywhere in every phase of life!
With lots of love.
