  • Time-keeping and respect for deadlines
  • Initiative
  • Respect
  • Adaptablity
  • Work under pressure
  • Self-esteem
  • Acceptance of mistakes
  • Self-Discipline
  • Goal setting
  • Concentration
  • Dedication
  • Ability to take responsibility 
  • Leadership Skills

We are lucky to have dedicated Principals and teachers in our schools, who following our international curriculum, achieve the best in each and every child. 

Duncan Rice, Director of Helen O'Grady Africa says, 'Nairobi is so lucky to have Amar and Jinita Desai running our international drama programme in Nairobi. They are truly dedicated people who want to see a change in the education of children using the holistic method of Helen O'Grady. To achieve 100 students in the first week is incredible - we will soon be looking at 1000s of children because there is such a need now to educate children in 21st Century skills so that children in Kenya will be more equipped to compete on the international stage.'
