Principal’s Welcome

Welcome to The ELA Murray International School.

We believe that children learn best in a caring, inclusive, and safe environment which provides them with opportunities to realize their full potential in all areas of learning. Our fully trained professional staff challenge and nurture every child to create an optimal context for learning from a whole school approach.

We are committed to building capacity in teachers and creating a collaborative teaching and learning environment. There has been a wealth of Visible Learning research conducted by John Hattie to determine the factors that have the greatest influence on student performance. Collective efficacy is the top factor that impacts student achievement. We are a learning community striving for excellence in educational practices that are research-based.

Our school community recognizes that everyone has an integral role to play in children’s development. We work in close partnership with parents, community members, and a network of professionals to support the holistic development of your children.

I am excited to begin this journey as the Principal of TEMIS community. We thank you for your support and look forward to meeting you.
