MISSION

Heritage Girls School aspires to provide an enabling environment that is intellectually stimulating  and culturally  rich ,where every girl strives to find her purpose in life so as to be of  value to society. To nurture  a questioning  mind, an uncompromising sense of  fair play  and a deep concern for the less  fortunate and for the environment we live in.

An enabling environment refers to an atmosphere that gives the girls opportunities to experiment, innovate and learn; where they have the freedom to articulate their thoughts, speak their minds, choose their direction.

 Everything the girls do and everywhere they go, has to be an opportunity to learn, to think,to grow. They are challenged to think critically, to reason and to come up with ideas that are theirs. The intellectually stimulating environment at Heritage Girls ensures this at all times.

The environment is culturally rich in that it  seeks out  all that is new, rich and unfamiliar; revels in celebrating differences and encourages embracing diversity so as to enrich oneself.

Every human being is born for a purpose; and to find one’s purpose in life is of vital importance. At Heritage Girls School,  the students are exposed to myriad experiences  so as to help them touch lives and to  find their purpose.

One of the most important objectives of education is to  create agents of change who will be able to improve the fabric of society so as to make a better world. Whatever the girls learn here is  directed towards  being of  lasting value  to society and  to the world at large.

 Heritage Girls School is committed to moulding life-long learners, who will carry the  flame of knowledge all their lives, wherever they go,  igniting the minds of people around them. This is possible only if one is able  to cultivate a questioning mind, to question superstitions & archaic practices  and to  shun ignorance.

An uncompromising sense of fair play:In a world that is  not always just or fair, it is easy to get carried away,to forsake one’s values.Early in their lives, it is ingrained in the girls that any kind of injustice and  unfairness is unacceptable, be it in the classroom, sports field  or in  the society they will  live in. It is in their hands to make it possible.

 The foremost value that we, at Heritage Girls  School insist upon is, gratitude. The girls realise that they  are lucky  to be born in a wonderful family, to be able to enjoy good education and to have a life filled with abundance. They are conscious that they owe it to themselves to share these blessings with those that are less privileged than they are. Community service is thus a part of their daily routine ,as is a deep awareness  that looking after the environment and the planet they live in is their prime responsibility.

Heritage Girls School is committed to these goals and strives to work towards their realisation.

THE PRINCIPAL’S MESSAGE

The young people that we are working with today, are a generation of extremely evolved, creative and critical thinkers, who need to be challenged constantly, every minute , every where. The innovations and inventions that have taken place in the past decade, spearheaded mostly by the twenties- something people, bear testimony to this.  The educators and the education system today, is stuck in a time-warp and  needs to be upgraded  to provide the stimulation needed to whet the kind of latent talent available in every classroom.

The need of the hour is to shed the old and embrace the new;a paradigm shift in the  mindsets and methods of dealing with the young, so as to provide the right soil to foster leaders, entrepreneurs, innovators who will usher in the new, vibrant India.

At Heritage Girls School, this is the endeavour. For, a new world is in our hands

FACULTY

One of the strong points of the school is its teachers. As a fully residential school, Heritage enjoys the advantage of having all faculty members on campus and hence available for the students around the clock for academic mentoring, emotional support and for training in activities.

Faculty members are specialists in their own subjects and are qualified to teach both the CBSE and the CIE curricula. All teachers are selected through stringent screening processes set by the Academic Council and have to conform strictly to the requirements of a boarding school.
Besides sound subject knowledge, strong communication skills, a progressive attitude, a positive outlook and a keen understanding of the psyche of growing children and adolescents are some of the qualities that we look for in all those who deal with the girls of Heritage Girls School.

The school is committed to staff development through ongoing in-service programmes and subject workshops.

The teachers are in turn committed to the academic progress of every girl. They undertake remedial tuitions to make up for weaknesses in any area. The school does not encourage private tuitions during the vacations.
