Principal's Message

Mr Paul Starkie

The Principal

Welcome to Crescendo-HELP International School (CHIS) – a close-knit community with a warm family atmosphere.

We are committed to developing well-rounded global citizens who will make a difference in the world. Our vision, mission and the nine masteries promoted at CHIS nurture students as creative, curious learners and critical thinkers.

As a school we are inclusive and committed to develop our students to:

• Be caring, considerate and courteous
• Be respectful, resilient, responsible, resourceful, reflective and to be risk-takers
• Be leaders
• Use technology safely to promote learning
• Be active in developing a sustainable society

We enrich the learning experiences of our young learners.

At CHIS, we want our students to be able to read and write, hypothesise and investigate, manipulate numbers and use technology effectively. We contextualise our curriculum so students understand what they are learning and why. At every level, we empower our students with the skills required to be efficient, lifelong learners.

We create a safe, nurturing environment for students to flourish.

Our goal is to ensure every student feels supported to achieve academically, personally and socially. We foster a growth mindset by building resilience in our students to help them grow as individuals.

We invest in our teachers, our school, and above all, our students.

When you visit our School, you will see the passion and commitment from our teachers and the motivation and engagement shown by students for their learning. We focus our attention on understanding the talents of every student to help them reach their full potential in every dimension of their learning. Our students have the capacity to achieve whatever they desire, and our responsibility is to enable them to fully realise their potential. We are committed to ensuring all students experience success and are supported so they achieve academically, personally and socially. Our students are empowered to collaborate with others, problem solve, take risks and accept challenges in their learning. The emotional well-being of our students will ensure they are happy and ultimately successful.

Developing well-rounded young people

Our staff are enthusiastic and dedicated and our students are motivated to achieve their very best in all aspects of school life. We strongly believe students develop as well-rounded young people with opportunities in a range of environments in order to grow and develop. We provide a wealth of leadership opportunities through our range of co-curricular activities which include competitive and recreational sport, performing arts, and a wide variety of other pursuits and experiences outside the classroom.

Every member of our school community is an ambassador for CHIS

We strongly believe that everyone in school should be a role model to others, from our youngest to our more senior students. We are all ambassadors for CHIS.

It is our passion that every child truly experiences the joy of learning with us at Crescendo-HELP International School.
