Singapore mamas – are you looking to give your little learners the gift of a truly global education? Then look no further than the Australian International School, which is currently accepting applications for the limited spaces available in their junior levels.
As the only school in Singapore to offer a southern hemisphere curriculum for kids 3 to 18 years, the school community is as multi cultural and unique as Australia itself – and it’s not just for Aussie kids either! With a learning programme that takes the best from the Australian curriculum and the best from the International Baccalaureate framework children are taught within a powerful curriculum that encourages independence, self-expression and self-motivation.
Recognising the need to support authentic Asian literacy development as part of their International curriculum, the AIS is also introducing a new streamed language programme in 2014, where kiddies in the junior levels will be involved in daily Mandarin classes.
And if teaching kids to skillfully communicate in the new global village wasn’t quite enough, next year AIS will be adopting a new Apple-based IT programme across the whole school (we know!). Littlies in the youngest years will benefit from a 1:1 iPad programme (preschoolers get access to their beloved iPads on a 1:4 ratio), while the tweens and teens will work from school provided MacBooks.
Located near Serangoon, the Australian International School is perfect for curious kids of all ages, but especially so for the smallest family members. The wee ones won’t have to tough it out in the schoolyard with the big kids as they’re housed in their own purpose-built, modern and bright campus, learning in classrooms that encourage exploration and discovery. The big kids aren’t forgotten either with their own impressive facilities, that include state-of-the art teaching spaces, massive sports grounds and cutting-edge IT facilities.
To explore this lovely school for yourself, you’re invited to the Australian International School’s Elementary School Open House Day on 7 November 2013 from 9:30am. Meet the teachers, roam the campus and discover more about this unique school programme. If you’ve got tweens at home, then head to AIS on 5 December 2013 for the Secondary School Open House Day from 10:30am.
