You’re invited: The Canadian International School’s new PYP Bilingual Mandarin Immersion Programme Open House!

LearnPost Category - LearnLearn - Post Category - SchoolsSchools

We know who you are. You’re that closeted Tiger Mum competing with other Kiasu parents for the last spot at the most sought after school Mandarin enrichment class on the island. Ain’t no Mama got time for that! What if we told you that there’s a new bilingual Mandarin programme at a leading international school with a successfully proven track record in the IB curriculum?

For the 2014-2015 school year, the Canadian International School (CIS) is launching their new Mandarin bilingual immersion programme for students four to six years, providing full-time Mandarin exposure by qualified PYP teachers. That means your little linguist will learn all of the goodies of inquiry-based learning and intercultural understanding under the umbrella of Mandarin language acquisition and real-life communication skills. Each classroom, from Junior Kindergarten to Grade 1, will be staffed by two PYP teachers – one native English-speaking teacher and one native Mandarin-speaking teacher – giving students the gift of the gab in both languages at the crucial early foundation stage of language acquisition.

While other schools only offer enough Mandarin to cover dim sum Sundays with the family, the Canadian International School gives all-day, full-exposure to both English and Mandarin language study at both its Tanjong Katong and Lakeside campuses, so parents on the East and West can avoid those treacherous pre-dawn bus pick ups. CIS is also one of the few schools to offer all three International Baccalaureate programs – PYP, MYP, and DP – so your little ones can grow into world thinkers all the way through to university.

To learn more about the details of their Mandarin bilingual programme, you and your mum-tourage are invited to their upcoming Open Houses this May and June at their Lakeside campus, where you can pick the brains of Head of School, Dr. Glenn Odland, Elementary School Principals Rob Kiddel (Lakeside campus) and Paul Hoff (Tanjong Katong campus), and new Head of Chinese, Ms. Huali Xiong.

To meet the brass at the Canadian International School’s Bilingual Programme Open House all you need to do is register here, mama!

Date: 28 May 2014 and 11 June 2014
Time: From 9am

Canadian International School (Lakeside)
7 Jurong West Street 41, Singapore 649414

Did you know that today is International Migrant Day? Say hi to our foreign labourer friends and do something nice for them!

Labour Arty (labourarty.com) is a young nonprofit that aims to bridge the gap between migrant labourers and locals through art. Drawing similarities through art they hope to solve bigger problems like foreign worker abuse and discrimination.

Join us and Labour Arty in the #YellowHelmetChallenge today to foster friendships between Singaporeans and migrant workers. By taking an Augmented-Reality self-portrait while wearing a yellow safety helmet –  we encourage you to strike up a conversation with foreign construction workers, who constitute part of the 1.4 million total foreign workforce in Singapore. 
Post a photo using the yellow helmet filter (available for download from the #linkinbio) to your Instagram feed and tag it #yellowhelmetchallenge
