mission & vision
For Next Gen.
To ignite and empower... through education.
The aim of The International School of Thrissur is to provide children with a safe and supportive environment that helps them reach their full potential. We are committed to educating our children to become independent, intercultural, active, and responsible citizens, who can utilize their skills and knowledge to contribute positively to society.
At TIST, our mission is to nurture young minds in the best way possible to make them responsible citizens of the future. The following principles help us achieve this goal.
There is no better way to learn than by doing it, which is why we believe in experiential learning. Our approach puts the student at the forefront. We get students involved using various tools for learning, such as experimentation, dramatization, role play, games, discovery sessions, concept mapping, etc., following a child-centric approach. Teachers act more as facilitators to ensure that the students gain hands-on experience and are more involved in their learning process.
In today’s global village, knowing just one or two languages is never enough. When languages are introduced at an early age, students have the ability to pick up lingual skills faster and more efficiently. This is why the school teaches English as the First Language, Hindi as the Second Language, and Malayalam as the Third Language. Apart from this, students may also choose to learn foreign languages.
The school has developed an extremely balanced assessment policy that looks into the various skills of a student, apart from writing. The assessments are conducted on an ongoing basis, using various tools and techniques without stressing the student. Our online assessment is powered by the Centre for Evaluation & Monitoring (Cambridge).
Imbibing entrepreneurship skills allows a child to think outside the box, instill confidence, and nurture unconventional skill sets. It prepares them for the future when they will enter the economy and choose a professional career of their choice. The skills we impart through our education include problem-solving; team-building and transversal competencies – such as learning, social and civic competence, and cultural awareness.
The world today needs more cultured, sensitive, and responsible citizens than ever before. As a school, our connection with society and our roots runs deep. We strive to make our students’ global citizens while ensuring that they stay strongly rooted in their local values and culture. We want them to find their identity and purpose in life by connecting with the community and our environment, and by imbibing humanitarian values such as compassion and peace.
Our endeavour is to prepare our students to live and work in modern society, with its ever-evolving challenges and choices. Some of the skills we look to develop include Critical Thinking, Time Management, Emotional Quotient, Behavioural Balance, and Communication Skills. At TIST, we look at development from the point of view of the overall well-being of our students through Physical, Social,and Health Education, and address their age-specific interests and concerns.
Our ethos stems from the belief that every child is different and no two learners are alike. They vary in their physiological, psycho-social and cognitive make up. They learn in different ways, and at different paces. As an inclusive school, it is our task to meet this challenge. We place great importance on creating opportunities for our students to learn and be assessed in varied ways.
