Messages From Our Management
Dr. Nadeem Tarin
Chairman, Managing Committee
Our school’s objective is to continue being recognized as a torchbearer of leading education methods and an institution that has students defining a future not only for them but for the world as well. The values, environment, and investment we put into our children today will help them achieve greater heights and create the unimaginable. My sincere thanks to the school’s principal, teachers, and other staff members without whom these successes- big and small is not possible. They not only teach the children the subjects but also inculcate values of commitment, zealousness, and pride in everything they do.
Dr. Ibrahim Al-Quayid
We aim not to just impart knowledge to the students, but also to inculcate in them – wisdom, compassion and a humanitarian spirit. We believe that every child has the right to study in a calm, orderly, safe and secure environment. We value every child and provide them a stimulating and enriching environment so that the children can enjoy and understand all aspects of their learning.
We, at Daratassalam International, Delhi Public School, Riyadh have strived hard and would continue to do so to propagate our age-old theory towards imparting quality education to our learners.
We can proudly say that our learners are equipped with the best understanding and excellent techniques – be it in academics or co-curricular. We look forward to seeing the best of our student’s achievements across all spheres of learning. And I firmly believe that our students will always march ahead having clarity of mind.
Mr. Mairaj Mohd Khan
To me, the very purpose of quality education is character building. Children are malleable material who can be shaped into persons of excellence by their teachers. As responsible teachers, we have to be exemplary to our students if we want them to be assets to the society and the nation. I feel it is important for every child to enjoy a sense of achievement. Every child should be encouraged to perform to the fullest ability and due importance should be given to learning in areas beyond academics. An institution should be a living place that shapes children’s lives and builds their character. Therefore to assess the school’s performance only by its high academic scores is not sufficient, it is equally important for a school to be a place for happy children with a love for learning and sound value system. To achieve these objectives we need to work jointly with the parents of our pupils to create a climate for open exchange of views and experiences, supporting each other quest for quality on all fronts.
