Dear Parents and Guardians
The Future is 'Global' and so it should reflect in the training of our children. Nevertheless, we immensely value our traditional ethos and systems of education. CISD meets both these aspirations of prospective 'Parents' through the adoption of methods of teaching and syllabi of national and international Examination Boards.
We care for each one who enters the portal of our Institutions for we know the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment or the smallest act of caring, all of which embody "parental care".
To us, your Child is unique. We are committed to grooming your ward into a strong all rounded individual who will excel in academics, be participative in co curricular activities and well prepared for leadership and responsibility as a caring global citizen.
Our curriculum reflects the parity of esteem for all curricular pathways – academic, technical and vocational. Each route is designed to equip our pupils for the challenges and opportunities of the future and prepare them for life-long learning.
I trust that on reading this prospectus you will find much that is of relevance to your child's school education. I am delighted to make an open invitation to you to visit us at any times so that you may see for yourself the school at work.
CISD not only follows foreign curriculum, in tune with the modern globalization and technology, in its heart of hearts, it inculcates also indigenous Bangladeshi culture and heritage into the students. It celebrates and observes all the vital events such as: Bangla Nababarsha, Ekushe February and International Mother Tongue Day, Birthday of the Bangabandhu, National Mourning Day etc. In this way, students are taught not only to identify their roots, but also to be the true citizens of the Brave New World. Our mission is to reach the essence of education --- harmonious development of body, mind and soul ---- to the students.
At this point, I believe that it is my responsibility as the Principal together with my staff, to provide opportunities for all our young people to grow and develop academically, socially and personally under the umbrella of Cardiff International School Dhaka (CISD).
Needless to point out that the concept of wealth has undergone a sea – change under the altered circumstances of the modern Globalization. Nowadays, it is not the material riches ---- it is the merit and merit only ---- which is considered to be the symbol of real asset. From this point of view, we can assure you that we will leave no stone unturned, no path untrodden, to make your children the true assets of Bangladesh and the real sons of the soil ---- by giving him/her the quality education, as well as, by inculcating invaluable moral and social values. These are not our high-sounding, lofty and hollow day – dream, these are coming out from the core of our hearts.
I want to see CISD as a 'CAN DO' School. By that, I mean where all of us, teachers, parents and children strive at all times to promote an atmosphere of self-belief, self-confidence and self-awareness. Each child in this school will be given every chance to be the best he/she can in a warm, caring and supportive environment. I see high expectations for all my staff and expect that parents and guardians will join us in partnership to achieve them: it is a two-way process.
Each child is different with different skills, abilities, knowledge and attitudes – we should cherish that. The school will create opportunities for Personal Excellence, providing personalized pastoral and career support and leadership opportunities; it maintains strong student-family-school relationships and communication. Respect and good manners are our core values. We work for Whole Person development. We believe that Students learn and achieve best when they are and their place in their family and community is recognized and affirmed. The school is future-focused: individualized academic pathways create opportunities for students when they leave school. There is extensive sporting, musical, dramatic and other cultural opportunities. Student learning and success are at the heart of CISD. Our role is to work with every student and family to ensure that each individual leaves school ready for their next step, both academically and socially, having achieved personal excellence.
Please contact us or make some time to visit if you have any further questions. I look forward to meeting you and working with you. I need your whole hearted support and cooperation to make CISD the best place for education of youngsters that you have always been dreaming of.
