Dear Compatriots,

What is the secret of success? Many philosophers have ascribed the key to success to be education. This is very true as education is the accumulation of knowledge to be enlightened on any given subject. So generally speaking, the type of education one is exposed to will establish the principles, beliefs, fears, etc. of the individual which might determine the destiny of the person. Therefore, the type of education you choose for your children and yourself is crucial!

On 9th August, 2021, after discovering this amazing Indian philosopher and guru, I honoured his invitation to assess his unique educational model being implemented in Ghana. You can read how I met him HERE.

“But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you,” Jesus Christ (KJV-Mathew 6:33). This simply means seek the principles governing the kingdom of God, and success in every form will follow suit. What is the kingdom of God? “Neither shall they say, lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you,” Jesus Christ (KJV-Luke 17:21).

Every religious system agrees on one basic thing – the spirit of God lives in the body. Atheists who are mostly scientists also know the human body starts from protons and electrons, atoms, minerals, organelles, cells, tissues, organs, systems, and finally make up the complete human body. No matter our belief system, and no matter our race and profession, we all agree that for the body to function properly to accumulate success in every form, we need to truly understand the human body and its functions in relation to the earth and the entire universe.

The Vitruvian Man by Leornardo Da Vinci

Imagine you went to a school where you were taught in your early years that water is not just to quench our thirst but is a universal solvent to flush toxins from the human body; and that taking 1.5L of water early in the morning or 500mL every 4hrs, 4 times a day, will help your body be free from toxins. Practicing this simple habit from childhood would have decreased or even eliminated your visits to the hospital due to sicknesses.

This is why Healthy-Mind International School has been established to provide learners with the best form of education to make a child an eminently valuable contributor to the world we live in by understanding the rules governing the kingdom of God or Nature. The goal is to build a new generation of lifelong learners, whose specialization or career is just a byproduct of their evolved mind, to become not just ordinary, but extraordinary adults with high order thinking skills that will catapult them to attain professional as well as the personal success of the highest order.

 Structure of Healthy-Mind International School

HIS is an IB Candidate School of International Baccalaureate Organization. Its operational curriculum is a blend of the Ghana Education Service and the International Baccalaureate (IB). Currently, the School runs from Nursery to Year 6 and additional classes will be added next year.

The Primary Years Stage: The program is designed for students from 3 – 12 years. It focuses on the development of the child as an inquirer, both in the classroom and in the world outside. It is a framework guided by six transdisciplinary themes of global significance, explored using knowledge and skills with extreme emphasis on inquiry.

Subjects Taught at Healthy-Mind International School

Unlike the ordinary education system, the teachers at HIS are facilitators. What does it mean? It means they guide the students by giving them curiosity-awakening topics to research into every subject. The facilitator guides the students to write their research reports on their own. Then, based on the content of the research, the students will be guided to assess their own performance.  Subjects taught at HIS include: Personal, Social and Physical Education, Language, Arts, Social Studies, Mathematics, and Science.

Other Learning Thematic Areas

Education for the future with the wisdom of the past is unlike any other education in Ghana. It comes with a Talent Academy, Sports Academy, Music Academy, Dance Academy, and a Professional Development Centre for the Facilitators and Parents.

.The Talent Academy identifies the talents of students in the areas of sports, music, drama, dance, arts, etc.

The Professional Development Centre is where Facilitators and Parents can learn about the unique concept of the Human Plant and our role and significance in the universe. They will also learn the importance of the six transdisciplinary themes governing a global citizen, and how to utilize the attributes of learning to discover: Who we are, Where we are in place and time, How do we express ourselves, How do we organize ourselves, How the world works, and How do we share the planet. This centre I personally think is a simplified version of the mystical Kabbala teachings.

 Regular Day Life At HIS

When other students in Ghana are singing songs such as “a lion, a lion has a tail, it has a big head and a very small waist.” Always keep in mind that learners at Healthy-Mind International School will be singing, “When we give a little, we get back a little bit more, When we give a little bit more, we get back a lot more, When we give a lot more, the returns are ten-folds. So giving is the key, Dedication and love are the chains, and one more chain is honesty. We are children of Healthy-Mind, where talents and minds are raised, with true education for the future, with the wisdom of the past. We believe in the law of giving, we believe in the law of love. So let’s love one another, we are children of one God.…”

Music

Before you settle down for any form of education in Ghana for your children, keep in mind the words of the great American genius Benjamin Franklin – “An investment in knowledge pays the best interest.”
