Leonardo da Vinci

Leonardo da Vinci was an artist, scientist, and inventor during the Italian Renaissance period. He is considered by many to be one of the most talented and intelligent people of all time.

Two of his most famous paintings, and perhaps two of the most famous in the world, include the Mona Lisa and The Last Supper.

He designed hang gliders, helicopters, war machines, musical instruments, mechanical pumps, and many of his design drawings later became pioneering inventions.

Da Vinci was very logical and used scientific processes to investigate subjects. This seems at odds however to the stereotype of an artist who is often open to many paths, creative choices and out of the box thinking. Da Vinci had a unique ability to adapt and epitomises our vision for innovation.

The vision for Kingsgate International School has been inspired by Da Vinci because we believe that current and future generations require young people to embrace Art, Science and Technology. They will need to adapt to rapid changes and do many things well.

According to a 2016 report by the World Economic Forum, “By one popular estimate, 65% of children entering primary school today will ultimately end up working in completely new job types that don’t yet exist.”

Even “old” jobs will look radically different in workplaces transformed by technology, changing demographics, and globalization. No longer can children plan for just one career or life pathway.

The term Renaissance Man (someone who does many things very well) was coined from Leonardo’s many talents and is today used to describe people who resemble Da Vinci.

We believe that “Kingsgate Kids” will graduate with similar characteristics:

  • Excellent grades that reflect their upmost potential
  • An innovative and creative mindset
  • Adaptive and flexible approach to challenges
  • Good character, beliefs and values
  • Global citizens who embrace difference

All of this happens at Kingsgate through the Pursuit of Excellence Through Hearts, Minds and Hands

Kingsgate children will have advantages above and beyond graduates from other schools. Good grades alone do not ensure success. Well rounded children with an open and captive mindset become global leaders for tomorrow.
