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.
