Dear Parents and Carers,
It gives me great pleasure to introduce myself as the new Principal of the Royal Institute of Smart Education (RISE). My name is Eklas Rahman Mohammed.
RISE is the first, ‘All Through’ British School in Sylhet and the whole of Bangladesh. It educates 3-18 years olds in Sylhet. RISE is a British Curriculum School following the Cambridge International Education (CIE).
I feel extremely honoured and privileged to have been chosen to continue, lead and develop RISE to become an ‘Outstanding’ centre of excellence to teach the next generation of young people. RISE is very successful school because we focus very strongly on what really matters: — “the quality of teaching and learning”.
My lifelong ambition has always been to ensure I serve the community I work in, to the best of my ability. My vision is to ensure all children ‘Learn Together, Achieve Together and Succeed Together’. There is nothing better than to see children and young people who are happy in life and achieving their full potential no matter what their background is. No child should be left behind, ‘Every Child Matter’s’ and every child can achieve’.
I have worked in education for over 20 years most of which has been in large schools in London. I have been a Headteacher, Deputy Headteacher, both in Primary and Secondary Schools as well as leading Sixth Form Colleges. I am also a trained Early Years Teacher as well as a practitioner of Special Educational Needs and Autism. I am a fully trained medical physician as well as having trained with British Airways as a Junior Pilot. Further to this, I have also led the prestigious Sixth Form college that sends children to the best Universities in the United Kingdom for example Oxford, Cambridge and the Russel Group of Universities.
The needs of our children are always paramount in the life and decision making within a school. I strongly believe in providing our children with exciting, creative and meaningful learning experiences, which build their enthusiasm for learning and help them to grow and develop positively in a variety of ways. I think it is crucial to involve our children and their families as partners in their education. I am also keen on building a whole school community which thrives on mutual respect and values positive relationships. I know how vital working in partnership with parents really is for children to find school a positive and rewarding experience. As key educator in your children’s lives, I feel that it is important that you have a voice and that as a school we are approachable and allocate time to listen to your concerns, worries or thoughts about our school.
I look forward to meeting you all in the Science Fair and Open Day at our school on Saturday 27th May 2023.
