How We Manifest Courage?

At SISS, courage manifests when we take risks in learning, express our opinions, and stand up for what is right.

Firstly, I would like to welcome you all back from a well-deserved rest during the Tet Holiday. I hope you all had a wonderful time with your loved ones. It’s always a very special and momentous occasion.

As it is now February, I wanted to mention some key events that take place during this month.

The first is our Well-being Workshops that take place on February 21 and 22. These workshops are wonderful opportunities for our students to understand the importance of how to use social networks effectively and safely to ensure mental and physical well-being. The second is Spirit Day: Sports Day, which is on February 22 and allows students to come to school in sporty outfits. Finally, we have the kick-off for the long-awaited TEDxSISS Youth that takes place on February 21. These are all wonderful opportunities for students to socialize, be creative, and gain valuable skills which will help them in the future.

Finally, I would also like to take this opportunity to discuss the theme of February, which is Courage, as it not only comes from one of our core values, but it helps to contribute to vitality and harmony within the SISS community.

Courage is the ability to face challenges, uncertainty, and adversity with resilience and determination. At SISS, courage manifests when teachers and students take risks in learning, express their opinions, and stand up for what is right. To promote courage, we encourage an open and inclusive environment where everyone feels empowered to share their ideas without fear of judgment. We foster a culture that values diversity, encourages curiosity, and embraces challenges as opportunities for growth.

Outside of school, promoting courage involves community engagement, encouraging students to participate in extracurricular activities, and instilling a sense of responsibility for doing the right thing. By fostering courage within and beyond our school walls, we aim to empower individuals to become confident, compassionate, and proactive members of society.
