PRINCIPAL’S MESSAGE

Somerville International School is an abode of knowledge that embraces each and every child with love and utmost care. We envision an education system where students are prepared to face challenges of life. We believe that education should just not be a mere acquisition of knowledge, it must teach young minds to draw up a line of demarcation between knowledge acquired and wisdom gained, especially in today’s non-linear world. At SIS each child evolves in an atmosphere of love with focus on sound moral values enabling them to grow as a compassionate and responsible human being.

We are one of the premier educational institutions in the NCR with a vision to excel in all spheres. At SIS, we carry the ethos of Somerville Schools forward with renewed zeal and dedicated commitment. The school has witnessed an unprecedented positive growth and development in the course of the years. SIS has evolved on several fronts – academic, co-curricular activities, sports, games and social service.

Our academic programme is built around the needs of the competitive world we live in. The holistic curriculum of our school enable each child to bloom in accordance to his/her innate potentials, transforming each child into a well-educated, rich in values and an affectionate individual.

Our classrooms at SIS help create an inviting and a nurturing learning environment. They are designed to stimulate the mind and promote learning experiences with Tata Class-Edge technology installed in each class. Everything within the classroom is curriculum focused. As stated by Confucius, “I hear, I forget. I see, I remember. I do, I understand”, the school has well equipped laboratories giving ample opportunities to the students to learn with hands on experience. The science laboratories of the school enable students to interact directly with the material or with data drawn, using the tools, data collection techniques, models and theories of science. The school also has a state of the art infrastructure for indoor and outdoor sports including basketball court, volleyball court, badminton court, taekwondo, a lush green field for cricket and various other athletic events.

We encourage individual monitoring and counselling for the students through ‘Mentorship’ to elevate them to a higher level of performance. It involves direct contact with the parents of the children by teachers who analyse and devise ways to help these students, develop confidence in them and create a congenial environment for them to nurture them with love and affection.

We empower our teachers with the training and resources that they need to deliver high quality teaching and learning experiences, to bring out the best in our students. Each day is a challenge for our teachers and students to embrace new knowledge, to innovate new ideas and to execute our goals with perfection.

At Somerville International School, each child is a budding star, fully equipped to touch the infinite sky with a sound determination and conviction that – It Should, It Could and It Must! to light a lamp that will illuminate the whole world with its wisdom, creating a pool of learning that will never dry up, and painting a canvas that will portray the world in its sublime grandeur. We believe in the golden triangle of the school, the student and the parents. So let’s together build bridges of knowledge to tide over the oceans of ignorance and bring our children into a world of empowerment and enlightenment.

We uphold the belief: “Train a child in the way he should go and when he is old he will not depart from it.” Proverbs 22: 6 (Holy Bible)
