Our Vision :
There are certain things that are fundamental to human fulfillment," says Stephen R. Covey," the essence of these needs is captured in the phrase "To live, to love, to learn, to leave a legacy". Avalon vision is adapted from this path breaking thought.
Learn to Live:
Avalon seeks to inculcate life skills in our students. Life skills include psychosocial competencies and interpersonal skills that help people make informed decisions, solve problems, think critically and creatively, communicate effectively, build healthy relationships, empathize with others, and cope with managing their lives in a healthy and productive manner. Life skill are both "thinking skills", and "social skills". Another very important life skill we try to inculcate is self-management, which includes managing/coping with feelings, emotions, stress and resisting peer and family pressure.
Learn to Love:
Love is the catalyst for change, development and achievement. The world knows Allah as the eternal source of love. He is the Ocean of Love. We believe that our students would be transformed in becoming a part of this Ocean, and in being that one tiny drop would acquire all the values of that great Ocean. Educating the heart, becoming a human, develop a keen Emotional Quotient, learning to feel empathy for other – these are all part of "Learning to Love". In a world increasingly rent by a paucity of values, we like to teach our students old fashioned values and attitudes such as honesty, concern, discipline, acceptance, sharing, respect and compassion.
Learn to Learn:
At Avalon the key to good teaching is to equip the student to learn by himself/herself. When children relate what they learn to their own experiences, when children discover and uncover the secrets of knowledge themselves, when they learn by doing and, by working with their hands, by using the language of imagination-that learning becomes meaningful, permanent and delightful. Knowledge, understanding and academic skills are acquired by intense student involvement and engagement.
Learn to Leave a Legacy:
Avalon believes that each one of us must enrich the world by giving back to the world something of the blessings that one has received. A Wiseman once asked why he was serving the poor. He answered, "I am here to serve no one else than myself, to find my own self-realization through the service of these village folk." I leaving behind for the others to use, to enjoy, we leave a legacy. And the need to leave a legacy is our spiritual need to have a sense of meaning, purpose, personal congruence, and contribution.
