2017 - 2018 Mentorship Series
The Mentorship program was the 1st official event organised by the The Indian School Muscat Alumni (ISMA) on December 19, 2017. The mentorship program was established to enable alumni to share their professional and personal experiences with senior ISM students. Through this program, we, the ISM alumni, aim to help and assist students to accomplish their educational goals and help them explore various career options. With the launch of this program, ISM Students now have a platform to connect to a whole network of alumni who are eager and willing to help and share their wisdom with the students.
The goal of this program is to prepare students in senior classes (10th, 11th and 12th grades) for a successful future and to gear up for the next phase of life in higher education.
During this event the ISMA leadership team facilitated an open discussion on various topics with the 12th graders of Science, Commerce and Humanities streams in 2 seperate sessions held simultaneously.
The ISMA team spoke about various higher education choices, entrance tests, college requirements, applications and shared some of the life lessons learnt during their time in college. The team also spoke to the students about the ISMA’s Mentor Connect Program where 12th grade students and Alumni will be able to connect and address specific academic queries and goals.
The ISMA team shared their first hand experiences with the students and helped clarify and negate any misconceptions about college life. Students enthusiastically participated in the Q&A session and asked questions related to academia, college life and adapting into new surroundings. Students have continued to reach out to the ISMA team directly via the ISMA Facebook page or have emailed us their specific queries.
The ISMA Mentorship program was designed to prepare students to climb the next rungs on the ladder of their educational and professional careers. ISMA hopes to continue to guide them in their journey and become enablers for students, in their pursuit of excellence.
