As the chairman of the Monarch Education Society, I have an important role to play. Not only managing the board, but also overseeing the progress of the school. Although the outstanding principal and excellent staff have developed BIS into the institution that I had envisioned, my mind and heart is always in the school, no matter in which part of the world I am. All these pains seem worthwhile when I see a child winning a contest, progressing academically and the staff taking that extra step to teach their students.
I firmly believe that besides the infrastructure, hi-tech environment and facilities, it is the approach and quality of staff that matters the most. Since the inception of the school, I have been overwhelmed with the performance of every person and feel proud of the collective effort. This also inspires us to keep progressing and achieve our bigger goals.
When I see a child's tiny hand moving a computer mouse, and the eagerness in his eyes to explore the computer's abilities, or a child listening to a lesson with his eyes wide open and getting involved in the process, my heart gets filled with a feeling of fulfillment. I see the young students germinating into strong and responsible humans.
Today, science and technology is on the rise. New ways of interactive education are being devised; the Internet is revolutionizing education; traditional pen and paper is being replaced by the computer, and the child's mind is now more inquisitive. At BIS, we have all the technological means to educate the child, and yet instill in them essential moral values.
