There is growing awareness among teachers, parents and workplaces that standardised tests which judge the capabilities of students are one-dimensional and education systems need to develop the 21st century skills required for children to successfully negotiate dynamic and uncertain demands of today’s workforce.

The future we envision for each child is of her becoming a conscientious world citizen, a learner for life and a creative, connected and collaborative problem solver. The Heritage Child learns to look at the world from many different perspectives, through the language and nuances of different subjects integrated together and through the context of real world interests, needs and challenges.

At the Heritage, we believe that every child is unique and we nurture that uniqueness – through a stimulating environment that breeds curiosity, freedom and encouragement to pursue passion, practice of self-reflection to know where their sense of meaning and mastery comes from, and a plethora of opportunities that leads to acquisition of skills and capacities to fulfil that dream and also to flourish in this constantly emerging interconnected world.

The child is at the centre of all that we do and we keep revisiting the needs of this child in tune with what is demanded from him/her. We aim at the attributes that this child should possess, and the practices and pedagogical tools provide us with the behaviours, actions, measures and structures that is a translation of intentions.

Self-awareness

Besides having an understanding of their strengths and weaknesses, students must have a deep understanding of their several identities and the roles they play. They need to think about their dreams, hopes and aspirations; they must be intent on discovering. Knowing oneself is essential for them to continuously raise their level of consciousness, which in turn is essential to lead a fulfilled, meaningful and joyful life.

At the Heritage Schools Relationship, Relevance and Rigour framework developed by Dr. William R. Daggett defines the approach to learning. Our innovation has been to incorporate humane tenets of Eastern philosophy and the academic rigour of Western thought into this framework. We believe that Relevance makes Rigour possible; however, Rigour and Relevance are only attainable when children forge a true and enduring Relationship with themselves, their teachers, peers, environment and learning. Delivery of all three components of the framework, from the early years, ensures that children develop the inner will to evolve into creative, empathetic, problem solvers and critical thinkers of the future.
