Head of Primary's Message

Adani International School

"The main purpose of education is to develop students' ability to think critically and integrate ideas, rather than to accumulate facts"— this purpose governs Ms Cheryl's thinking about the PYP Framework that encourages children to make meaning from their own learnings.

She's a passionate and experienced teacher first and then a Coordinator with a demonstrated history of working with young inquiring minds that are curious to explore the world around them. She strives to create a place for students to engage in authentic inquiry where they are supported and challenged to become independent learners, empowered to address issues collaboratively in creative ways.

Cheryl is a strong administrative professional with a Master's Degree in Arts from the University of Mumbai and a certified PYP and Cambridge Educator.

She believes in LEADING by EXAMPLE. At Adani International School, we will create places that nurture creativity and provoke thinking. We will give children time to wonder, think, explore and try. Our school will be a place that prepares our children to be lifelong learners and confident, capable, compassionate members of our world.
