"In a time of drastic change it is the learners who inherit the future. The learned usually find themselves perfectly equipped to live in a world that no longer exists" -- Eric Hoffer
With my wife, my son and my daughter in law, as experienced and committed teachers, we as a family believe truly in the value of quality educational opportunities for both individual children and the community at large. We wanted to create a school that delivers the Ugandan National Curriculum through incorporating the latest international research on teaching and learning.
Upon finishing their primary schooling at Clarke Junior School we believe your child will be in a unique position of having the personal and academic skills (as well as the necessary qualifications) to continue their learning journey either through the Ugandan or in any other system. We want your child to have developed skills of inquiry, questioning the world around them and not just blindly accepting what they are told. We want your child to relish the joy of discovery and to embark on a lifetime of learning that is both rigorous and fun.
We believe Clarke Junior School will provide your child with the opportunity to acquire the knowledge, practise the skills and develop the understanding they need to become future leaders in a globalised world. In setting up Clarke Junior School we have carefully considered the future world, the attributes and qualifications our students will need to succeed. We then considered the type of learning our children will require to prepare them for that world and we will continuously be considering what that will look like in our school. We want our students to be able to compete equally in both the local and the global market.
Through enrolling in our school it’s like joining a like-minded family. We still believe in understanding the heritage of our culture and learning, what has made us who we are with the timeless lessons of nature, but we also look forward as we accept the world is fast changing and we accept the challenge of making the best judgements we can about the what the world will look like to best prepare our children.
Thank you for considering Clarke Junior School for your family – our school has been created with love to provide our young learners with the very best opportunities. We feel a wonderful sense of excitement and promise as we welcome each new student to our school.
Please come and see us! We would love to talk to you more about our school and why it is so special!
Dr Ian Clarke
