Cultivating Determination: August Value of the Month at Footprints International School

 August 14 ,2023

At Footprints International School, values are not just words; they are the guiding principles that shape our community and empower our students. During August, we focus on one of our core values that embodies resilience, persistence, and the pursuit of excellence: Determination.


Determination surpasses fleeting motivation; it stands as an unwavering commitment to achieving our goals, even in the face of challenges and setbacks. This unwavering drive propels us forward, motivating us to surmount obstacles, embrace growth, and ultimately achieve success.

Nurturing Determination in Students:

At Footprints International School, we recognise that cultivating determination is not just about achieving academic milestones; it is about nurturing a mindset that equips our students with the tools to navigate life’s complexities.

The Journey of Growth:

The journey of determination often begins with a dream or aspiration. Whether it’s mastering a difficult subject, participating in a sports competition, or undertaking a creative endeavour, determination fuels the initiation of these pursuits. It empowers students to set goals, break them down into manageable steps, and persevere through challenges.

Overcoming Challenges:

Challenges are an inevitable part of any journey, but determination is the compass that helps us navigate rough waters. It encourages our students to view challenges not as roadblocks but as opportunities for growth. With determination by their side, setbacks become stepping stones towards greater achievements.

Celebrating Small Wins:

As we celebrate Determination as our Value of the Month, we take pride in acknowledging the small victories that contribute to the larger picture. Each moment of focus, each instance of pushing through adversity, adds to the collective reservoir of determination within our school community.

A Call to Action:

As parents, educators, and students, we have the privilege and responsibility of fostering determination within ourselves and our community. Let us encourage an environment where trying again and striving for improvement are celebrated. Let’s recognise the power of determination not only in our academic pursuits but also in our daily interactions and personal growth.

Determination is a mindset that empowers us to transform challenges into triumphs. This August, as Determination takes centre stage at Footprints International School, we encourage everyone to embrace this value not only in their classrooms but in every aspect of their lives. Together, let us inspire and uplift one another to be determined in our pursuits, resolute in our ambitions, and unwavering in our commitment to growth.
