Director’s welcome speech
Dear friends and colleagues,
An idea of establishing “Nursultan Nazarbaev Public Foundation” was born 15 years ago. Since that time we have achieved significant results to be proud of. Our IB schools work towards realizing students’ individual potentials, provide them with a wide range of subjects to learn and open doors of world leading universities. Our teachers strive to develop students’ leadership skills fostering their sense of responsibility, honesty and citizenship.
Developing a modern and effective system of education is one of the main aims set in the national Strategy for Development of the Republic of Kazakhstan. Creation of the new model of an international school and support of innovative processes in secondary, tertiary and higher education are the outcomes of successful realization of the mission statement of the Foundation. The unique educational programmes offered by the Foundation schools enable students to develop international-mindedness, cherish the cultural heritage of Kazakhstan and respect towards other people’s values and traditions. Our schools are accredited and authorized by respectful international organizations and can be considered as conceptually new educational establishments which meet high international standards.
We teach our students to reflect on their skills and abilities, boost their self- confidence and be persistent in pursuing their educational goals. Students develop their understanding about honesty, fairness and compassion since these eternal values must always win in life! Our students’ lives are full of joys and exciting discoveries. Our teachers are distinguished by their diverse educational background and ability to find a unique way to each student’s heart. At the same time they can be strict and demanding when the situation demands. The main quality of a teacher is to be able to inspire students and provide them with proper guidelines in their learning journey.
Our “Miras” schools accumulate the best educational innovations, practices and methods which contribute to the development of balanced learners. I believe that we set proper goals and the benchmark is very high! Feedback from students and parents, examination results, and the fact that our graduates enter world leading universities prove that we successfully cope with the set goals. Let there always be the atmosphere of kindness, warmth, creativity, zest for knowledge in our schools!
I would like to express my deep gratitude to our teachers, students and their parents, our business partners, soul mates and friends of the Foundation and wish all of you further fruitful work with providing a human being with his fundamental right – the right to high quality education.
