Ms. Aruna Singh

SENIOR PRINCIPAL, Shalom Presidency School

Ms. Aruna Singh comes equipped with enormous experience of more than 3 decades as an educator, which includes ten years as Principal of a school of eminence.  She has both proven experience and great drive and enthusiasm which will add complementary strength to our Team. She is well-versed with CBSE, as well as Cambridge curriculum.  She has authored books covering both CBSE & CIEsyllabus.

A true academician, she believes that the goal of education is to provide an environment to the pupils who incorporate consequential learning and personal development.  For her, authentic education implies an ongoing interplay between context, experience, reflection, action and evaluation, which leads not only to mere information gathering but to the integration of this information, insight formation and ultimately transformation of the individual and society.

Her vision for the school is to ensure that all the students achieve academic excellence, become socially aware and develop into alert, responsible global citizens transcending beyond personal expectations, while at the same time experiencing an outstanding and enjoyable education.  Envisaging an ascent of the students towards success by asking more of them today, tomorrow and forever, she accepts as true Henry Ford’s words” “Life begins with one step outside of your comfort zone”.

She visualizes that her ambitious vision can be achieved through addressing three key areas – firstly by improving outcomes for all, secondly by maintaining relentless focus on improving the quality of teaching and learning, and finally by developing high standards of behaviour, life skills and an entrepreneurial spirit that will equip them for their future.

Considering excellence to be a gradual result of always striving to do better, she aims to lead the young minds of Shalom Presidency towards academic excellence, while at the same time remaining devoted to preparing the students for life, grooming them to face the challenges of tomorrow and encouraging them to be socially relevant.
