Welcome Message

PRINCIPAL’S MESSAGE

These words spoken more than 200 years ago continue to hold true even today, highlighting the importance of a rich school experience in every child’s life.
At Shining Star, we empower our children with the knowledge and life skills required to overcome the many challenges they may face in the future. We integrate the “EXTRA” into the curriculum which promotes holistic development and ensures that our students constantly strive for excellence in their personal and professional lives.
Our ‘Stars’ as we lovingly call them, bring to life the brick and mortar structure that is the school and Oh! what a joy it is to teach them and be rewarded with their smiles and efforts as they continue to impress us.
We expect our students to honor the school’s Code of Conduct and set high standards for themselves. ‘Impossible is nothing,’ in our dictionary and we take great pride when our children keep pushing the bar of achievements, adding on to the legacy of Shining Star International School.
Our management team and faculty members remain the strongest pillars of support for the school system and it gives me great pleasure to dedicate this message to them.
I would also like to draw the attention of parents, teachers and students towards the Sustainable Development Goals, also known as the Global Goals. It is our collective responsibility to ensure that Agenda 2030 becomes a reality. Being a Teach SDG Ambassador for 2019, it is an honor to be part of the international cohort, spreading awareness about SDG’s projects and I look forward to everyone’s collective contributions towards accomplishing these Global Goals.
We at Shining Star International School aspire to create a symphony in the hearts of our young pupils, so that pure music surrounds them, as they take their first steps in this wonderful dream called ‘Life’.
As Henry Ford said: ‘Life begins with one step outside your comfort zone.’
I call upon the Lord Almighty to bless us all and carry us in the hollow of his hand.

CHAIRMAN’S MESSAGE

Dear Stars and Potential Parents,
Welcome to the SSIS portal. I am honored that you are considering our school as your gateway to learning.
As a child, I often heard my father echo the words of Malcolm X – ‘Education is the passport to the future, for tomorrow belongs to those who prepare for it today.’ He was a huge fan of learning and often sponsored education costs of children belonging to less fortunate households in our neighborhood. He believed that going to school was the birthright of every child and he spent a lot of time in his later years, convincing his friends and peers to support his endeavors.
He lovingly referred to all these children as his ‘STARS’ and was so proud of them, when they began to shine in their chosen fields. He kept abreast of all their achievements and would proudly recount all their successes, as if they were his own children.
In 2014 when an opportunity presented itself, I took a six-month sabbatical from my businesses, to set up Shining Star International School.
We are a young institution, but our teachers have over a 1000 years of collective teaching experience between them. They have all been handpicked for their respective roles and share a common passion of nurturing young minds. At SSIS, education is not just about imparting bookish knowledge. We teach our children the importance of wisdom, courage, humility and integrity and believe that highly motivated and confident young adults become natural leaders in their peer groups, whilst also having the edge if faced with any of life’s future challenges.
The Abu Dhabi community’s response to Shining Star International School has encouraged us to start building a state-of-the art campus at Wathba which will become operational in 2020-21.
Thank you for taking the time out to familiarize yourself with our school. On behalf of my team, I extend a personal invitation to visit our campus and trust you will be soon be part of our international family.

Wishing you and your families a very happy, peaceful and prosperous 2019 – 20.

The mind is not a vessel to be filled, but a fire to be kindled.
