Welcome speech of the principal
I am glad to welcome you to "New Generation School" at the most crucial moment – the moment when we are creating one of the best schools in Almaty. Today we have 20 000 m2 of rich educational space at our disposal, and we dedicate it entirely to children.
My 25-year experience of administrative work in the best public and private schools shows that the quality of the education system directly depends on the teachers who work in it. In this regard, the focus number 1 in our school is personnel: professionalism and pedagogical talent of teachers, passion for their work, desire to be teachers. You can't give others what you don't have: it's not easy for students to graduate at the highest level if their teachers don't have the appropriate knowledge, skills and abilities.
It is also important that the perception of quality education is changing. In an era when people have to compete with artificial intelligence more and more often, erudition and simple accumulation of knowledge fade into the background. To look forward to the future with confidence, we should now teach students through a creative, innovative approach, develop analytical skills and the ability to analyze and summarize information. These are areas in which a person will remain unsurpassed for a long time. That's why focus # 2 in our training is the so-called soft skills: values, beliefs, objective thinking, teamwork, and caring for others.
Success is a prerequisite for a full life. There are no unsuccessful children in the NGS school. Everyone has their own direction, where they can prove themselves the best. And an important task or our focus #3 is to identify the strengths of the child, help him show his talents, give him the feeling that he can do everything, that he is capable of everything. A New Generation School takes into account three elements that make up a child's harmonious education: academic knowledge, personal skills, and athletic abilities. We teach children sports, music, drawing, and other arts that help them see that all people are different, and each person is special and unique. The NGS school was conceived as a launching pad for the development and achievement of talented, promising and gifted children, and we are successfully moving towards this goal.
Alena Khrabrykh is a Manager with an impressive experience in launching and developing private educational institutions, including from scratch. Her projects include the School of Cooperation", which she brought to the top 1 of the rating of private schools in Moscow, the development of methodological and motivational programs in private educational centers in Moscow and St. Petersburg. In the new intellectual era, we can't do without emotional values and a creative approach to task solving, which is why Alyona is introducing innovative approaches to learning today.
* The teaching staff will be updated.
