What is ArkCrest Education?
The name itself tells a story how this comes about. The word Ark, comes from the biblical story of Noah’s Ark. Noah’s Ark (Hebrew: תיבת נח; Biblical Hebrew: Tevat Noaḥ) is the vessel in the Genesis flood narrative (Genesis chapters 6–9) by which God spares Noah, his family, and a remnant of all the world’s animals from the flood. According to Genesis, God gave Noah instructions for building the ark. Seven days before the deluge, God told Noah to enter the ark with his household and the animals. The story goes on to describe the ark being afloat for 150 days and then coming to rest on the Mountains of Ararat and the subsequent receding of the waters.
This is significant to my tuition: as my tuition is like carrying my students across a stormy, rough and tough sea of hurdles and obstacles. But there is a saying at the end, there is a beautiful rainbow for all my students who are willing to struggle through hardship, discipline and determination, one day you will be an awesome person and make legacy yourself. A lot of my students have already make a name for themselves thus this far.
The word CREST refers to the highest part of a hill or mountain range; summit. The head or top of anything or ridge like formation. The reason I chose the word CREST is to ensure ALL my students will reach their goals , objectives, missions , grades and characters to the highest peak in their lifestyles always. No matter how tough, torturing and tormenting the journey in life it may be, we have to CLIMB up the ladder to reach the top and be a successful, superb and sensational human being. To serve his/her family as a leader as well as to contribute back to the society wholeheartedly too.
Every tuition has a beginning, and this is where I like to share my story. The ARKCREST story, a story that I want to pass on from generation to generation. To tell and encrypt into their minds that education is the most powerful tool and weapon. I want my students to know in order to do well in life is not just about education alone, but to use education in the right manner, the right time, the right attitude with the great aptitude to survive in this reality world. A story that will bring every student a success story and a legacy on their own. All the best.
