In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful,
All praise is due to Allah. We seek His help and His forgiveness. We seek refuge with Allah from the evil of our own souls and from our bad deeds. Whomever Allah guides will never be led astray, and whomever Allah leaves astray, no one can guide. I bear witness that there is no god but Allah, the One, having no partner. And I bear witness that Muhammad is His slave and Messenger.
I stand before you today with profound gratitude and humility as I accept the honorable position of Chairman of At-Tanzeel Schools. I am deeply honored to be entrusted with this significant responsibility and am fully committed to guiding our institution to new heights of academic and moral excellence.
Firstly, I extend my heartfelt appreciation to the outgoing chairman, Alh. Abdul Hameed Oladimeji Olana, and the entire board members for their unwavering dedication and hard work in establishing a robust foundation for our beloved At-Tanzeel Schools over the past 13 years!
As we embark on this collective journey, I am eager to share our vision for the future—a vision centered around the transformation of education delivery to meet the challenges of the 21st century. Our pledge is to cultivate an environment that fosters holistic development, where academic achievement harmoniously coexists with moral values and a profound sense of responsibility.
Our primary focus will be on investing in 21st-century teaching and learning infrastructure and methodologies. The world is evolving at an unprecedented pace, and it is imperative that our educational approach evolves in tandem. We will integrate more cutting-edge technologies into our curriculum, creating an atmosphere that stimulates innovation, critical thinking, and problem-solving skills.
Information technology will assume a central role in our learning and teaching delivery. We aspire to craft an immersive and interactive educational experience that transcends traditional methods. By harnessing the power of technology, we aim to empower our students as well as teachers to become adept digital citizens capable of navigating the challenges of the modern world.
While academic excellence remains non-negotiable, we recognize that true success lies in the character of our students. Hence, we will place a strong emphasis on instilling moral values and ethics. Our goal is for our graduates not only to excel academically but also to emerge as compassionate, ethical leaders who contribute positively to society.
Also important is the focus on staff quality and welfare. As the saying goes, you cannot give what you don’t have; we shall invest more in teachers’ development to improve their capacity in teaching, impacting knowledge, and managing the school. Our staff welfare shall continue to remain critical in all our decisions.
Stakeholder engagement is paramount for the success of any educational institution. We will actively involve parents, teachers, students, and the broader community in the decision-making process. Collaboration will be the cornerstone of our success, and together, we will create an environment that nurtures the holistic development of each student.
In conclusion, I am enthusiastic about the journey that lies ahead for At-Tanzeel Schools. With your support, dedication, and collaboration, we will transform our institution into a beacon of 21st-century education—where academic excellence, moral values, and innovation converge to shape the leaders of tomorrow.
Thank you for your trust, and let us embark on this exciting adventure together.
