Schooling in Singapore can sometimes feel like a full contact sport. With some of the highest academic standards (and performance scores) in the world, not to mention cutthroat competition for spots in local and international schools alike, we sometimes worry whether our kiddos will come out jaded and insecure rather than confident in themselves and their learning abilities.
Avondale Grammar School is the antidote to all that negativity, mama. With their emphasis on Positive Education, not to mention their landmark “Bounce Back” programme, Avondale is all about developing a love of learning while also building character and fostering creativity, resilience, optimism and a sense of wellbeing in students. Sounds pretty good to us!
Avondale truly has a reputation for offering personalised education to children, all the way from Preschool to the Middle Years. Mistakes are regarded as part of life, humour is appreciated and even encouraged, and students learn to celebrate both their own strengths and the strengths of others.
Positivity is woven into the fabric of the school: whether aiming to achieve 100 random acts of kindness in Year 3, learning to “fill a bucket” with positive actions in Preschool, or seriously considering what it means to be a good friend in Junior School, Avondale students experience Positive Education in a meaningful and holistic way.
Then there’s Bounce Back: it’s a whole-school social and emotional programme that helps promote positive mental health and wellbeing in students. In this day and age of bullying and other social pressures we never dreamed of, Bounce Back helps enable students to face challenges and adversity with resilience, problem-solving skills and a bit of old-fashioned grit!
Find out more about Avondale, the only school in Singapore to exclusively offer the Australian curriculum, at their next Open Day on Wednesday 20 May. Make school as positive experience as possible for your little ones, mama!
