Our strength is our staff and the commitment of community leaders. The community will develop around the School, not allowing their own agenda to hinder the progress of the School. We hope to abide by the education guidelines stated by the State of Qatar and at the same time become leaders in an innovative sustainable education system. We would like to strengthen the ethical pillars on which the School is built. Even in our absence in the future, she will follow the core values – Growth, Flexibility, Transparency and Abandonment-the ability to ‘abandon’ out-dated ideas and methodology for new world trends. The future of our students cannot be strengthened solely by what our School offers. The Sri Lankan Education system especially government universities that offer valuable free education should integrate these children into their system in the event they are to return to Sri Lanka. These children should be treated with respect taking into consideration their parents’ contribution to foreign revenue for the country. I am keen to see the parents, teachers and administrators working together to ensure that these school-leavers are guaranteed higher education in Sri Lanka.
I am very thankful to my dear friend Mr. Yusoof Fridoni who sponsored the School for 11 years, Mr. Abu Baker who facilitates the present school premises, the Board of Trustees for their invaluable services, and the Sri Lankan Embassy for acting as sponsor of the School and of course extending continued support.
