Shermount Public School
Shermount Public School places human values at the core of our school's philosophy whilst
preparing our children for a rapidly changing world. Delivering the CBSE Curriculum to 3-13
year olds, our school focuses upon exceptionally high expectations, key skills, knowledge and
understanding as well as encouraging excellent attitudes to learning and metacognition.
At Shermount Public School we recognise the uniqueness of each child through a programme of learning that promotes challenge and personalised education at all levels.Our excellent standards in both learning and teaching create a learning curriculum that is relevant, rich and rewarding.Through this, we encourage creative and critical thinking alongside stimulating and meaningful experiences, leading to: fun and excitement; awe and wonder. Our curriculum celebrates the diversity within our school and equips our children with the skills and attributes required to become active citizens in a global community.
We continually aim to provide an inclusive, enabling environment which empowers all children to achieve. The school’s personalised approach to learning embraces and responds to diversity in individual learning styles and provides children with the skills, competence and attitudes for their future. The well-being of our children is paramount and we place great emphasis on building high quality personal and social skills, which have such a positive impact upon standards of achievement and attitudes to learning.
The kindergarten team welcomes the children and parents, with gentle assurances, fully understanding their anxieties and apprehensions. A judicious blend of structured and free play introduces the children to routines that help them grow socially and emotionally while they embark on their learning journeys. Making new friends, managing their emotions, dealing withdifferent viewpoints, expressing dissent in socially acceptable ways are skills that they pick up and develop along the way; ones that will hold them in good stead years later in the world of work.Beyond kindergarten years, while the focus of most parents is on learning core subjects, we continue our efforts to weave academic instruction with life skills, values and character building, knowing well that success today requires much more than academic excellence.
Self-fulfillment requires the ability to be perceptive, adapt to change, think on one’s feet, work in a team, and make informed decisions. It is with this goal in mind that we have carefully crafted our curriculum, beautifully blending activities ranging from rigorous sports to creative arts to innovative enterprise. Such a balanced approach to education provides opportunities to each child to hone their skills and groom their personality, to be what they can.
