When I heard about the plans for the new Middle School, I was convinced it would be a milestone – and the perfect opportunity I had been looking for to give something back. I see a huge upside in having one big campus for everyone – it will benefit not just the kids but also the parents, logistically speaking! That’s why I decided to get involved.
I believe in the power of education and think it is worthwhile to invest in. In fact, one of the best uses of money is for bettering the educational system, for the kids, the future. I hope the impact will be in supplying better conditions for teaching and learning and in facilitating the practice of applying the material taught. It will help create more space for kids to discover where their strengths and interests lie.
As a father of three kids who have all attended ZIS since early childhood, I am very happy with the education that the school has offered them. I consider it important to give back to society, and of course to education, as much as is in my power. We are fortunate to be able to live in Switzerland and send our kids to such a school as ZIS. The joy of giving is something everyone should experience as often as possible, each within their own possibilities.
