International School (OWIS)
All our children have attended OWIS since January 2018. The admissions team is very easy to communicate with and down to earth. In class, teachers use technology such as ipads and Apple TV to conduct lessons. I would recommend the school to other families who are looking for innovative teaching methods and the use of technology, integrating children with the gadget-driven world of today. The school also offers the IB PYP (Primary Years Programme) that focuses on the development of the whole child as an inquirer, both in the classroom and in the outside world. Students hone various skills, growing into more competent individuals and team members. For example, a student who has weaker aptitude as a leader would be asked to head a team in order to develop leadership skills. The exposure to multicultural international students is also very beneficial to our children. It creates greater acceptance, understanding and empathy.
We were looking for a school on the internet and came across OWIS, and the price was right. The children have a mix of interests in the Arts (music and art) and sports (soccer, badminton and basketball). They’re also enjoying Maths, Geography and Mandarin. Most mornings, they’re so keen to go to school that they request that we leave home early!
