Welcome back to another exciting school year!
For a start, we would like to extend our warmest welcome to our exuberant Year 1 students. New beginnings and refreshing experiences await you!
I would also like to extend my sincere appreciation to all parents, for continually showing your unwavering confidence and support in Edgefield Secondary, as well as forging close partnerships with our teachers, in ensuring the holistic development of your children.
At Edgefield, our educational belief is succinctly encapsulated in our vision, ‘Collaborative Innovators, Compassionate Leaders’. A culture of innovation undergirds our philosophy. In order to nurture our students to become outstanding innovators in the global workplace, they need to exercise innovation not only at an individual level, but also collaborate collectively to harness the innovative expertise and experience of diverse personalities. Hence, being a proficient collaborator would naturally give one an edge in the workplace.
In a similar vein, we believe that effective leaders of today’s world should possess the distinctive traits of compassion and empathy, to successfully navigate a complex world that is characterised by differences, divide and other deep-rooted societal issues. Developing in students a deep sense of compassion would allow them to reframe issues by re-examining underlying beliefs and presumptions, to bring about more enduring and meaningful changes.
At Edgefield, we believe that each and every one of our students are diamonds that are waiting to be polished. We are committed to providing our students with a vibrant school life and stimulating educational experiences that will spark their curiosity and ignite a passion for life-long learning. Through enriching experiences and multiple platforms to stretch our students’ ability, we believe they will embrace challenges confidently and find their unique place in society!
