Mel­bourne Spe­cial­ist In­ter­na­tional School

Expat Living (Singapore) - - Schools Mini Guide 2018 -

We moved to Sin­ga­pore in Au­gust 2016 and our old­est son Nuholt has been at­tend­ing the school ever since. Nuholt is very happy at MSIS and that is the most im­por­tant thing to us. The premises are very well kept. The chil­dren are given the op­por­tu­nity to par­tic­i­pate in var­i­ous ac­tiv­i­ties like swim­ming, gym and cook­ing, and there are ad­di­tional services on of­fer such as phys­io­ther­apy, speech ther­apy and oc­cu­pa­tional ther­apy, if fam­i­lies re­quire them. Dif­fer­ent sports are also ar­ranged as ex­tra-cur­ric­u­lar ac­tiv­i­ties, ac­cord­ing to de­mand.

MSIS un­der­stands the im­por­tance of teach­ing daily liv­ing skills and this is a big part of the cur­ricu­lum. The kids reg­u­larly go on out­ings that teach them these im­por­tant skills, such as bus rides, vis­its to food mar­kets where they pur­chase their own food, learn­ing to work with money, go­ing to the movies, and trips to the Sin­ga­pore Botan­i­cal Gar­dens or the li­brary.

We were taken to MSIS by our re­lo­ca­tion agents af­ter brief­ing them about our needs. We liked the premises, the staff and what they had to of­fer. The school not only has well-equipped fa­cil­i­ties, but also en­thu­si­as­tic and well-trained staff, and a lot of op­por­tu­ni­ties. They work with kids ac­cord­ing to their in­di­vid­ual needs and lev­els. One can see that ev­ery­one in­volved has a pas­sion for what they do. MSIS is a school where peo­ple know each other and draw sup­port from one an­other, and where chil­dren are cared for and loved.
