On the hunt for a different kind of summer camp in Singapore, mama? Let littlies from the age of 4 learn and have fun at ISS Summer School Discovery
School summer break is the time when kids get to relax, renew and rediscover all over again, and that’s just what ISS Summer School Discovery is all about. With more than a decade of experience running summer school programmes for kids, ISS Summer School Discovery knows what makes their minds tick and learn, without them even cluing on! They’ve taken all that experience and refreshed the programme this year so it’s new and better than ever, with more flexibility and freedom of choice for kids to pursue their passions.
You get the flexibility of a one-week, two-week, three-week or four-week programme, and you can enrol your children for just mornings, just afternoons or all day, mama – whatever works for your family. Whatever the length, children are immersed in a stimulating and creative programme of learning and fun, all geared around this summer’s refreshing theme of Discovery.
A typical day at an ISS Summer School Discovery runs like this; mornings are for language immersion: improve English or Mandarin under the direction of qualified and experienced teachers. Boost speaking, reading and writing skills and see your child’s linguistic confidence grow. Meanwhile, in Creative Writing students learn to plot, develop and present a short narrative from their own imagination. This programme’s ideal for kiddos who already have a good grasp of the English language.
After lunch, Discovery Adventures start, with alternating weeks of “Multi-Discovery” and “Self-Discovery”. In Weeks 1 and 3, Multi-Discovery options in Science, Technology, Arts, and Creative pursuits allow kiddos to discover what they like best, allowing them to further pursue their passions in-depth during Self-Discovery weeks 2 and 4. All sessions are hands-on, developing your child’s confidence, skills base and knowledge.
Courses are suitable for children from 4 to 18 years old. No two days are the same, which means signing up for one week, two weeks, three weeks or all four is an option (and probably one your kids will be begging for!). Bonus points for ISS’s super-convenient location just off Orchard Road, too!
With around eight weeks of holiday time this summer, mamas can be assured their kiddos and teens have fun without letting their keen little minds get rusty. Let your child make new discoveries every day this summer, mama!
