SCHOOL OF KNOWLEDGE has a success story of 30 long years at its credit, being founded on 9th September 1990. With undaunted determination and commendable leadership, the two founders, Mrs. Fauzia Ansari and Mrs. Deanne Jackson, had left no stone unturned to build up SOK to its present name and fame. May God bless them in manifold ways for this Herculean task, so well realized.
With the new Management, School of Knowledge now functions under the banner of St. Mary’s group of schools and is owned by the Vicariate of Southern Arabia with His Excellency Bishop Paul Hinder at its helm.
“The real asset of any advanced nation is its people, especially the educated ones and the prosperity and success of the people are measured by the standard of their education” said His Highness Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan…………and so education is the development of that bent of mind, that attitude of reason, that spirit of democracy which will not only make one a responsible citizen of one’s country but also an ardent advocate of global peace and welfare.
Our constant effort at SOK is to enrich the learning experience of every child in the school, both in curricular and extra-curricular spheres. We are convinced that this can be achieved through the disciplining of the child’s body and mind. To this end, we engineer every collective effort of the parents and teachers and aim to diversify the horizons of knowledge and wisdom so that each one of us at SOK can make a tiny but significant contribution toward making this world a better place to live in.
The emphasis is on awakening of an enlightened sensitivity in the child to the higher values of life rather than on a mechanical adaptation to the social machinery. Our motto “Enhance my Knowledge” inspires our students to dream big and aim high. We hope to kindle that light of faith in themselves that will guide them to tread the path, perhaps difficult but definitely not impossible, to success.
It is my earnest desire that every student who graduates from School of Knowledge should proudly be able to say with Julius Caesar “I CAME, I SAW, I CONQUERED”.
