This is not a motivational talk. Yet, Aloysius’ story will definitely serve as a strong inspiration to many. As parents (and perhaps for some competitive students), we want our children to excel in all areas. But often, we forget that every child is different and that we should look at their strengths first, instead of hammering on their weaknesses. We cannot teach a fish to fly but we can train the fish to reach places a bird will never reach. This is why IB education at Fairview International School advocates individualised learning. Listen to Aloysius’ story and learn how to turn “disadvantages” into a gifts.
