Can you tell me more about your institutions?

Yes, to be particular, we have two branches in Kuwait. The name in Tamil means “Brilliance.” As the name indicates, one thing that we have been focusing on is the quality of education. Our first institution has been around for over 25 years, and the second one for 14 years. Over time, we have always focused on the quality of education we provide, ensuring equality in how we treat children, regardless of their skill levels. We also emphasize values significantly. Being the only daughter of my parents, I was certain from my schooling that I would take up the institutions. Therefore, I have been training myself specifically to become an educationalist. We aim to instill in children the quality and attitude to perceive the world correctly, focusing more on how to do things better rather than just what not to do.

How is your institution adapting to the transition from traditional to digital modes of education?

We have recently associated with Oxford and are incorporating artificial intelligence and virtual reality to prepare children for future technological updates. However, we ensure that these technologies are used minimally, as it is the teacher who can bring innovative thinking into the minds of children. Mere books and facts cannot achieve that.

What modules does your school have to motivate teachers?

We are conducting back-to-back workshops and training sessions for teachers. We also plan to provide a wide range of facilities to help teachers educate themselves. Since most of our teachers are female and have household responsibilities, we are digitalizing our library and providing resources within the campus to help them keep up with the knowledge level of the children without having to do extra work at home.

What have you taken away from today’s session?

This event has been fantastically organized and is much needed. Most of the discussion comes from top-level people who do not implement changes, but as implementers, we can bring real change on the ground. I have found that many people think like me, and this event has provided a wonderful opportunity to connect with other schools. We can contribute to changing society as a whole since children from various schools are part of a larger educational community.

Do you have any message for ArdorComm Media Group?

Yes, I would like you to organize more such events, focusing on the next generation, especially in schools. It’s important to concentrate not just on sustainable development but on what is needed overall. We often compare ourselves with the United States, but there are significant differences in population and culture. We need to correct ourselves according to our country’s characteristics rather than relying solely on research or statistics from institutions like Harvard University. It would be wonderful if initiatives could be taken to create our own statistics relevant to our population. Thank you for the opportunity to be a part of this event.
