“Education is not preparation for life, education is life itself”…
See below some of the great educational institutes Endumeni has to offer.
The second most important decision you will make as a parent — apart from deciding to have the kid in the first place — is deciding which school for them to enroll in. Make the right decision and you could put them on a path toward lifelong learning, a prestigious college education, and a successful career. Choose wrong, and well, you know.
Below are some points to consider:
Leadership: Everything rises and falls on leadership. Be open to all forms of schools; choose schools based on leadership rather than type. The easiest way to critique a school in this manner is to see how well the school receptionist greets you. If leadership is strong it will echo throughout every facet of school life.
Values: Does the school you choose for your child share the same values as your family? Are you clear on what values you want passed on to your children?
Opportunity: What sought of opportunities are available for your child to pursue at the school of your choosing, not just in terms of subjects, although that’s important, but extra-curricular activities?
Discipline: What are the procedures regarding the schools disciplinary issues? How are disputes handledSense
Sense of Community: Everyone wants to belong; it is a fundamental human need. Social networking is trying to achieve what in the olden days only family could, a sense of connection with others who are like minded. Make this one a priority. It will improve the wellbeing of your child and help build resilience in ways you couldn’t imagine.
Openness to Spirituality: Please don’t misread this. I am not talking about religious fundamentalism or militant atheism, either side of these pendulums are dangerous and both preach intolerance. We want to raise open-minded children, who become seekers of truth. Information fills our heads with knowledge, but leaves our psyche empty. Life’s mysteries must be reflected on and contemplated in order to develop a healthy soul.
Commitment to Social Justice and Community Service: No parent wants to raise a self-centred, narcissistic child. We live in a global community, and as global citizens it is vital that we foster empathy. Empathy is more than a feeling, it creates a desire to take action on behalf of those less fortunate. It is an emotion that must be taught and developed in order to bloom into full scale social transformation.
