We are committed to promoting and supporting the wellbeing of every individual by creating the school ethos of I CARE, where our school community (children, staff and parents) feels secure, and know that they are valued and encouraged in their learning, growth and social development.
At APS our role is to ensure that students and staff:
• Learn to maintain positive mental health, reduce the stigma surrounding mental health issues, seek help and support if required
• Are equipped to cope with change and stress
• Empathize, respect and cooperate with all
• Are provided opportunities to develop professionally and personally
• Follow a zero tolerance bullying policy
• Balance their working lives with their personal needs and responsibilities
We aim to promote positive mental health for each child, parent and staff.
We want our school community to be confident enough to express themselves emotionally, while maintaining strong and positive relationships with peers.
We aim to provide students with a strong foundation by guiding them through the transition from student to a young adult. Our career counsellors help students with doubts, concerns and questions. They even guide them through the university application process and support them as they make their final decisions. Learn more about the different ways in which we support their future educational journeys below:
Students are given the opportunity to meet Universities and educational centres across UAE and abroad.
One-on-one sessions are offered by the career counsellor and Head of Careers to help students create and implement their own career plans, and develop a greater sense of self-awareness relevant to the career development process.
Throughout the academic year, the school arranges a range of interactive workshops to equip students with 21st century skills needed to prepare them for higher education. Workshops may include:
• University Application Procedure
• Portfolio building (various kinds)
• Professional skills and academic CV development
• Preparing for IELTS, SAT, ACT, UKCAT, EMSAT etc.
• Insight into Admission from University Perspective and Information about UCAS/OUAC/CAO/Common App, etc.
• Entry-level examination
Universities from around the world visit the school and introduce students to their university, the courses and services available to students.
On careers day we welcome industry leaders and professionals to share their work and personal experiences with students. This helps students get a more in-depth understanding of job roles and what it takes to reach your career goals.
Community service/ Work Experience:
Participation in Model United Nations, events, teaching junior students, community service, internships, etc. are highly encouraged. We want students to get the opportunity to hone their interpersonal skills.
We assist students with their applications for UCAS, OUAC, Common Application and more.
Student Guidance & Support
To ensure that every student lives up to their maximum potential, we provide access to student counselling centres that guide them towards the right stream of subjects and interests, taking into consideration their aptitude, skills and desired career path.
We provide support classes for English, Hindi, Arabic and Maths for students who require additional help with these subjects. Students can opt for these classes for an additional fee.
At Amity Private School Sharjah, we believe that constant communication between parents and teachers is essential for a child’s educational growth and wellbeing.
