I am very happy to note that after a very arduous past, we can proudly say that we have achieved many of our short term goals. The Colleges raised by the Foundation equip and train students who have gone ahead and made a name for themselves. We are very proud of our alumni. Our students with a wide range of interests, talents and academic backgrounds discover their potential, realize their excellence and achieve greater success. We see every student as a unique individual. We have developed a multiple intelligences approach to teaching and learning which is based on the fact that students learn in a variety of ways and colleges, therefore, should provide a range of engaging learning opportunities.

All our programs reflect our philosophy that students should be seen as gifted in different directions. Our eagerness to embrace the many ways that students learn and the (often hidden) talents they possess is reflected in our celebration of human diversity. We have a genuine desire to draw out the best in each of the children in our care. We continue to hold high the original thoughts of our founder and work towards fulfilling his dreams. Let us all work together to continue doing well to society and hence enhance our prestige. Le us be recognised as worthy children of the soil.
