Established in 1986 under the visionary glimpse of our Late Chairman Mr. John Valiyaveettil, IPHS had its modest beginning situated in serene surroundings in Ras Al Khaimah away from the hustle and bustle of town. His belief in the Eastern philosophies of Education was well envisaged in the motto of our school ‘Wisdom is better than riches’.
Traveling two decades IPHS accomplished its modern amenities in new surroundings providing a caring ambience for the young minds to be nurtured. Today’s world has demanded a wide range of subjects, an increasing need for complete literacy, technical subjects and different teaching methods to suit mixed ability classes. IPHS portrays the school for what it is today, exploiting our success and celebrating the past without allowing it to become an inhibitor. It is good to reflect on our history but equally important that we look forward much more than we look back. Traditions of the past should not necessarily dictate what future aspirations are. The greatest cause for optimism is that not only have attitudes of students changed with the times, but that teachers too have widened the student’s horizons. The modern teacher is phenomenon of the new century …he visits not only old monuments but new websites. He encourages his pupils to visit plays and at the same time to enjoy play stations. With mentors like this how can today’s students fail to comprehend and understand the world around him? I wish IPHS glory and success in its never ending journey.
