Gandahara Educational Academy’s mission to to provide the highest quality preschool and primary education and its Vision is to encourage all of its students to DREAM BIG.
At Gandahara Education Academy, it is our goal to become an organization where:
In the fall of 2012, the Academy decided to incorporate the Vision of DREAM BIG into the school.
We have started the DREAM BIG initiative to encourage our students to express their dreams. The students are asked to write down their ambitions and future plans. We talk about their dreams and plans for the future during our classes.
Students in classes 2-5 were asked to write a paragraph on their BIG DREAM. They wrote some amazing dreams. Here are a few of the dreams as written by the students — in Pashto as they wrote them and as translated into English.
We will work on showing the students the steps that they need to take to fulfill their dreams and to give them ground to make their dreams come true.
We also encourage the students to continue dreaming big and we will support their continuous development.
When we read the students’ DREAM BIG dreams, we noticed that many of them shared vocational and professional goals in certain fields, for example, health and engineering. As a follow-up, and to provide them with role models for these dreams, we are inviting professionals from different fields to visit the school and talk with the students about how they achieved their work goals and also to teach some concept that they use in their profession. Our aim is to invite one visiting speaker each month. We will report on those visits here.
