People around Us

Good morning! I am intrigued by the sharing of a few paragraphs in a book by a friend this morning. I could not help but think, “How appropriate!”

The writer wrote in one of the paragraphs about how people surround themselves with others who either elevates them or brings them down. These people around an individual will help a person be the better version of themselves or a lesser version of themselves. Now, let’s take a look at where we are at right now. Who are we surrounding ourselves with? People who are positive? People who give feedback and show solutions or ideas to improve ourselves? Or are we with people who are constantly whining and moaning and criticising without providing solutions?

The paragraph also stated, “No man becomes great on his own. No woman becomes great on her own. The people around them help to make them great.”

I really love this sharing because it helps me to keep myself in check. Who am I surrounding myself with? Am I one of the people who helps and lifts others up?

BE POSITIVE. Be around positive people. Feed off the energy and feel-good vibes around people who truly cares and values what you believe in. Help others be great and be the change that you want to feel.

Till the next sharing everyone!

Social Mobility

The term social mobility refers to movement by an individual or a family unit, up the ladder of a social class. According to Cambridge’s online dictionary definition, social mobility means ‘the ability to move from one level of society to another’.

What does it take for a person and a family to attain social mobility?

Knowledge, opportunity and timing.

With the presence of knowledge and information, the individual will be able to meet the challenges and questions of life in a confident, prepared manner. When the opportunity arises for the individual, he needs to be aware of the opportunity and grasp it with both hands. Sometimes, the individual have to be ready, confident and wait for the right timing to climb up the social ladder.

Darrasa is here, willing to help individuals and families climb up the social ladder. Are you ready and willing to take this opportunity?

Learning for All

We are proud to see that our strategies in working with our students have all been successful; whether they are gearing towards excellence or learning individual goals for holistic development.

Every child deserves to be taught in the way he or she learns best. According to Gardner, everyone have different traits in terms of their intelligence. They have the capacity to be intelligent in their own way. We agree. Therefore it is the job of the teacher, the educator, to understand how the student learns and operates best to assimilate new learning; which in turn makes the teaching and learning experience fun!
