Eton­house In­ter­na­tional School

Expat Living (Singapore) - - Schools -

Kimi at­tends Sec­ondary 1 ( Year 7) at the Eton­house In­ter­na­tional School at Broad­rick. She started in Year 1 and then left to­wards the end of Year 4 due to our fam­ily re­lo­cat­ing. She re­joined Eton­house in Sec­ondary 1 when we re­turned to Sin­ga­pore.

The staff and teach­ers at Eton­house are in­cred­i­bly pro­fes­sional and ded­i­cated. The school helps us in ev­ery way to make Kimi’s cam­pus ex­pe­ri­ence en­joy­able. We also of­ten have get-to­geth­ers with other par­ents and their chil­dren out­side cam­pus. In terms of teach­ing, the learn­ing is made fun. We like that the school is ed­u­cat­ing and de­vel­op­ing the chil­dren holis­ti­cally, not just for aca­demics.

At the Sec­ondary level, the school has an Out­door Ed­u­ca­tion pro­gramme that Kimi is en­joy­ing very much. This in­cludes a va­ri­ety of ad­ven­ture chal­lenges such as ori­en­teer­ing, archery and rock climb­ing, which has helped test and de­velop her phys­i­cal, social and per­sonal skills. She al­ways comes home happy and with many stories to tell. She has gained much con­fi­dence and in­de­pen­dence through her ev­ery­day in­ter­ac­tions with teach­ers and class­mates. The school also keeps par­ents up to date with our chil­dren’s progress.

When we ar­rived in Sin­ga­pore, we checked out schools in the East area and short­listed Eton­house. When we vis­ited the cam­pus, we felt that it was the right school for Kimi. We were very im­pressed with the school’s val­ues, phi­los­o­phy, and cul­tural and lin­guis­tic di­ver­sity, as well as its solid and well- rounded cur­ricu­lum. The school is warm and welcoming, fo­cus­ing on each in­di­vid­ual child and their tal­ents. Eton­house has pushed the bound­aries of Kimi’s ca­pa­bil­i­ties while still mak­ing it en­joy­able for Broad­rick Cam­pus, 51 Broad­rick Road | 6346 6922 Thom­son Cam­pus, 8 Thom­son Lane | 6252 3322

Ad­ven­ture chal­lenges such as ori­en­teer­ing, archery and rock climb­ing have helped test and de­velop Kimi’s phys­i­cal, social and per­sonal skills.
