Mission & The Giles Advantage
The Giles School's mission is to cultivate lifelong learners and responsible global citizens who can rise to the challenges of the future, while making a valuable impact in society. We provide a well-rounded bilingual education with an all-inclusive perspective that develops students of character who are committed to making the world a better place.
THE GILES ADVANTAGE
Inclusive learning and teaching are a necessity to equip our students with the understanding, preparedness and resources to live in our ever-changing world. Society faces a range of challenges and individuals from varied backgrounds, ideals, beliefs, abilities and ways of thinking are needed to tackle what lies ahead. Nurturing each child’s unique characteristics, interests, abilities and learning needs is a focus here to ensure students can develop to their full potential. Teaching is differentiated as required so students feel safe and able to thrive.
International Growth Mindset
The Giles School provides students with an international growth mindset by equipping them with four main languages - English, French, Mandarin, and Spanish. With a specific focus on teaching French immersion, students are educated in cultural awareness and given the language skills to interact effectively within a range of different settings.
A growth mindset helps children encounter the inevitable challenges of life and enables them to view them as opportunities to learn, instead of as a ‘failure’ on their part. By harnessing this mindset, alongside the benefits of a multilingual, immersive language education program, children are given all they need to grow, develop and explore themselves and the world around them.
An innovative thinker is able to utilize both sides of their brain by using critical thinking skills, creativity and emotional flexibility in order to make sense of situations with a 360 degree perspective. The Giles School fosters innovative thinking skills within all its students throughout all the blended learning programs. Innovative thinking encourages self-awareness, self-reflection and resilience to enable individuals to deal with a range of emotions, situations and experiences and ultimately help them to remain ahead of the competition in today's fast-paced world.
