HeadMaster Himmat S. Dhillon Dear Parents,

"Education Is Not the Filling of a Pail, But the Lighting of a Fire."
Plutarch.

Warm greetings from Sanawar!


I am pleased to share that I am at my post and thankful for your good wishes, the guidance of a most supportive and enlightened Board, a very supportive community, dedicated staff and the blessings of the Almighty! Indeed, it is not only most humbling but also a singular privilege to be entrusted this high honor. I am blessed and truly feel that I have arrived home, once again!

The motto of Sanawar is Never Give In . This motto encapsulates the resilient power of our community and how much we can achieve when we work together. It is a powerful catalyst that will continue to power our vision of a braver, kinder and better world for our coming generations that we are preparing our students to create. This is the ideal towards which we all strive.

It is most pertinent for me to draw your attention towards our schools Vision:

VISION

To produce a well-rounded, self-confident, positive young person with the following attributes:
  • An inquiring and fearless mind.
  • Respectful of others view points.
  • Believes in the values of social justice and equality.
  • Leadership skills across the spectrum-social, political, commercial and cultural.
  • Ability to stand for others and self.


  • My personal leadership Vision is aligned with our school’s Vision. Indeed, I am inspired by our school’s Vision and will strive to extend this principle of community further; to realize that by learning and working together with respect, each one of us can achieve our individual potential. As you all are only too aware, our students, staff and families are facing an unprecedented and challenging period. In fact, the educational offerings that we all took for granted are not a practical proposition given the circumstances.

    I firmly believe that we need to focus on the most important thing which is to ensure that our students’ learning continues and they are kept occupied in the pursuits of learning and developing the faculties of the mind. We need to put learning first and shape our teaching to bring out the best and most productive learning in the children.

    My aim is to provide consistent and high quality education to our students and to extend it even outside and beyond the walls of the school. I am happy to share that we have come up with a Facilitated Virtual Learning Programme for our students by which our students will continue to receive the highest quality of education possible with the resources available to us.

    Our entire team is going above and beyond for which I am most appreciative of the sterling service done by the Senior Leadership Team and the invaluable and selfless contribution of every faculty member. In these trying times they are working collaboratively to prepare assignments, guided revision exercises, online learning platforms and digital resources for the students’ edification. The entire team will deploy IT and pedagogic resources and remotely continue to support our students learning through lessons. And yes, we will endeavor to assist, as much as we can, with whatever queries they may have. We shall be providing timely updates as our online learning progresses.

    Parents, please do share with your children that they are not on a holiday. They must establish a routine, take care of their health, exercise, get adequate sleep, eat nutritious meals and engage with their learning.

    I know there are many challenges along our path but I am very pleased that we have started our shared journey off together so well. Whatever the challenges we will overcome them together and get to our destination!

    I am keen to meet parents and families, to give you the opportunity to say Hello and also ask any questions you may have, when the situation permits; but till then, written communications from me will have to do. Our community, our world needs positivity at the moment and with your help and support we will make this happen!

    To conclude, please remember that my door is always open to you. Please do not hesitate to get in touch if you have any queries, concerns or if there is anything I can do to help and support you with your child’s learning and school life. I sincerely welcome your conversation and input during this year. Let us keep our students as the primary focus of our work.

    The entire team and I at Sanawar shall continue to strive to take our school and our students to even greater heights! I can’t wait to celebrate our collective successes during the 2020-2021 school year.

    Never Give In!

    With best regards,
    Himmat S. Dhillon.
    Headmaster,
    The Lawrence School, Sanawar.
