In­ter­na­tional School (OWIS)

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

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!
