The Sabari Group is a conglomerate with a glorious history of three decades in diverse fields, such as, Distribution, Marketing, Construction and Hospitality.
The Sabari Group has ventured into the world of education with a futuristic objective of enlightening and empowering young minds, and has begun operations with a one-of-a-kind school in Dubai. It envisages setting up more such educational Institutions and an International University in the near future.
Mr. K.R.V. Ramani, the young and dynamic Chairman and Managing Director of the Sabari Group, has envisioned SIS (Sabari Indian School) as an educational institution of tomorrow. Mr. Ramani's wisdom, concern and passion for education will generate immeasurable benefits for the children of Dubai and for the society at large.
SIS has embarked on its new journey with a group of intellectual minds, conscientious, diligent, highly qualified and dedicated academicians, and extraordinary managers who strive to realize the goal of making it an institution of tomorrow.
From the Managing Director’s desk…
At the outset I wish to thank the Ministry of Education and the Knowledge and Human Development Authority for providing the Sabari Group with an atmosphere extremely conducive for it to serve the cause of School Education in Dubai.
Impressive strides begin with a small step. Sabari Indian School (SIS), today a fledgling in the field of education, is all set to scale great heights, armed, as it is, with dynamic educators, who come with a collective experience of nearly sixty years in School Education.
SIS follows CBSE curriculum, to prepare its students for the competitive spirit of International Education. The CBSE curriculum, as drafted by the directors of the School, enables Project Based Learning (PBL), because we at SIS believe in Transformative Education – education that transforms the learner into a confident, accomplished youngster in the 21st Century context.
Under the stewardship of our able Academic Directors, Malathi Rangarajan and Nitya Ramaswami, our competent principal and a spirited team of teachers, SIS began its victory march on April 7, 2013.
With the support of discerning young parents, who wish to witness the wholesome development of their wards, and our urge to offer the best in curricular, co-curricular and extra-curricular activities, I find neither the task nor the lofty goals we have set for ourselves, daunting.
We extend our warmth and welcome you to SIS. Let us join hands to create a glorious tomorrow for our children.
With best wishes,
From the Principal's desk...
It is my privilege and honour to be a part of the leadership team of Sabari Indian School (SIS). Having worked as an Academic Supervisor of the school earlier, I am very happy to be a member of SIS, which has set very high standards for itself and endeavors to achieve excellence through dedication and hard work.
"True education does not consist merely in the acquiring of a few facts of science, history, literature or art, but in the development of character." - David O. McKay
We at SIS believe that children always yearn for knowledge and hence we nurture a learning culture in a stimulating and sustainable environment with interested adults as supporters. We promote hollistic education by creating an interactive learning atmosphere in the areas of scholastic subjects, co-curricular and extra-curricular, along with skills that are essential for the 21st century. Inculcating age-appropriate value systems in our forte and the transformation of an individual into a responsible global citizen with good leadership skills is our goal.
Learning is a self-starting, self- propelling process. The Project Based Learning (PBL) method followed in the school emphasizes the cardinal principle -- learning is above teaching. The role of the teacher is redefined. From a mere possessor of information, at SIS a teacher is a facilitator and guide to the learner. She helps evolve a program of education that is aware, sympathetic and understanding towards the needs of every student. A teacher, therefore, is patient and intervenes and guides when necessary. She stimulates the student’s mind with striking words, ideas, questions, stories, projects and activities.
“The finest present one can give to a child would be to teach him to know himself and to master himself” – Sri Aurobindo
The active involvement of parents complements the efforts of the teachers in the school. The achievements of the students depend on the support and guidance received, not only inside the classroom, but also outside. Hence parental involvement is very vital for a child’s overall progress.
My aim is not only to be an able administrator but also to be a friend, philosopher and guide to everyone – a person who can be counted on and trusted at all times. I assure you that my doors are always open to the students and their parents for suggestions or guidance.
It is my endeavor to live up to the vision of the institution and ensure that the goals set are achieved, so that together we take SIS to new heights of success.
