It is with great pride, to be the Founding Principal of Invictus Secondary School in Singapore.
Starting a new school provides an incredibly exciting opportunity to bring best educational practice to a school from its very inception. Such practice includes Dweck’s ‘’Growth mindset’’, William’s ‘’Catching Learning’’, Marshall’s ‘’Lift” and much more. These ideas based on recent research, reflect an important shift in education that puts the focus on what children learn, rather than what children are taught. It puts the focus on individualised learning.
Here at Invictus, we recognise that all students learn at a different pace, with different styles and different needs. We believe children should be challenged in an environment where learning is joyful and irresistible. They should learn respect and equality, understanding the importance of caring for others and their environment by example and through authentic learning experiences, and they should become entrepreneurs of their own future, with the skills to adapt to a rapidly and exponentially changing world.
We are "Invictus", from the Latin for "unconquerable", where we prepare children to be victorious, no matter what path they choose.
I warmly invite you to come and visit us and discover first-hand, why we are different and why we are so proud of our professional learning community.Warm regards
Dr Nicholas Duggan
