Head's welcome

https://www.cis.edu.sg/about/heads-welcome

<div class="text-block default-padding" style="background-color:#fefdff; color: #303030;" xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/html"> Head's welcome Our academically rigorous programme is complemented by a broad range of languages, fine arts, athletic and service learning opportunities designed to develop balance, deepen connections and to uncover true learning potential. Our pedagogical approach focuses on developing the skill-sets our students need to be successful in the 21st century. We haven’t replaced the 3 Rs. Instead we’ve embedded them within the context of the 4 Cs: critical thinking, creativity, communication and collaboration. Our teachers encourage intellectual curiosity, foster creativity and inspire the pursuit of excellence in ways that define what a world-class, future-oriented education should be. They couple high expectations for success with relentless care and support - hallmarks of outstanding instructional practice. By doing this, our students become critical thinkers. They are global citizens equipped with the knowledge, skills, and expertise necessary to gain acceptance at the best colleges and universities in the world and to excel in the next set of challenges and opportunities that await them. I encourage you to visit and experience CIS for yourself. Walk through our hallways and talk with our students and you will begin to appreciate their unique insights, talents and perspectives. I’m confident that you’ll be as impressed as I am by their respect and generosity, as well as their intellectual curiosity and concern for this world they’ll one day help to shape and lead. I look forward to meeting you. Pete Corcoran Head of School Click to play the video Kindergarten Primary Secondary read more

<div class="text-block default-padding" style="background-color:#ffffff; color: #000000;" xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/html"> An international curriculum At CIS, our children’s social and emotional well-being is paramount. We nurture their natural sense of curiosity and wonder through our inquiry and play-based teaching approach. Underpinned by the PYP framework, our stimulating and creative curriculum supports each child in reaching their personal potential. Teaching instruction caters to each student’s needs, abilities, and learning styles, resulting in a community of happy, confident and engaged learners. Language of instruction Our youngest learners in Nursery (2 years of age) enjoy a unique bilingual environment with an English speaking teacher, and two Chinese speaking teaching assistants. Both languages are integrated into classroom activities, preparing children for both our English or Chinese-English bilingual programmes. An international curriculum As one of Singapore's leading private kindergartens, we offer an engaging inquiry, play-based teaching approach grounded in research and best practice. Extensive studies show hands-on exploration solidifies concepts and understanding more concretely than rote learning. Our Nursery programme is PYP inspired, and children learn as they engage in both teacher-guided and child-initiated exploratory, investigative and imaginative play. Our nursery curriculum focuses on developing children’s fundamental social, literacy and numeracy skills, as well as their fine and gross motor skills. As children move into Pre-Kindergarten, they engage in topic-based learning commonly referred to as the Unit of Inquiry (UOI), and different subject areas are integrated as they explore a particular concept or topic. Students have dedicated literacy and numeracy lessons, and specialist teachers for Chinese and French. Physical education, art, music and drama are delivered by either a specialist or the homeroom teacher. Where possible, learning in these specialist areas links back to the overarching topic. Science and social studies are learnt exclusively in the context of the UOI. Our STEAM programme supports students’ natural curiosity and creativity. Our kindergarten students learn how to make connections across subject areas as they invent, analyse and explore concepts in STEAM. Lakeside Kindergarten virtual tour <div class="text-block default-padding" style="background-color:#ffffff; color: #000000;" xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/html"> Discoveryand exploration Our Lakeside Campus located in the west of Singapore, adopts a schools-within-a-school design, creating unique communities inside the school and accommodating students aged 2 to 18. Our kindergarten children learn in a dedicated kindergarten wing, where classrooms are organised in grade levels and spill out into learning pods. These learning pods are large, open, shared spaces where teachers set up hands-on learning centres. Other learning spaces that foster skill development include a junior library, kitchen, black box theatre, STEAM makerspace and a Kindergarten kitchen. Our Tanjong Katong (TK) Campus located in the east of Singapore, is smaller and more intimate and accommodates students 2* to 12 years of age. Classrooms for our youngest learners are warm, colourful, spacious and grouped together, ensuring a strong sense of community. Each classroom has direct access to an Outdoor Discovery Centre. Other learning spaces include a library, amphitheatre, and STEAM makerspace. * Please note that nursery for children 2 years of age will not be offered in 20-21. About TK's Outdoor Discovery Centre TK Outdoor Discovery Centre is used as an extension of our indoor classrooms and support learning in ways that extend far beyond a traditional playground. Our students love everything about these centres but some of the extra special features include a play fort, sound and herb garden, mud kitchen, natural tunnel, bike track and quiet and peaceful places for reflection. Through playing with mud, water, sand and loose objects such as sticks, stones, mesh and rope, our students engage in imaginative and creative thinking while solving problems. They learn to calculate, measure, invent, estimate, specify, analyse, hypothesise and test theories, thereby developing their thinking, communication and research skills. Transdisciplinary learning through integrated arts <div class="text-block default-padding" style="background-color:#00b388; color: #ffffff;" xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/html"> Communicationand parent participation Parents play a very important role in their child’s foundational years and we encourage our parents to take an active role in their child’s education and school life. In turn, we aim to keep parents informed about their child’s learning progress, our programmes and the latest in educational research. Our early-years teachers are passionate about the children in their care, and work to ensure they feel safe, valued, secure and happy in both our schools. In nursery and pre-kindergarten, parents are welcome to stay for the daily settling-in activities, allowing their child to adjust to the concept of separation and school life. Our teachers communicate with parents every Friday via My.CIS (our parent portal) and we share important information through our advisories and weekly newsletters. Coffee mornings, assemblies, parent seminars and hands-on workshops are hosted regularly, while parent-teacher conferences are held three times a year to discuss each child’s progress. Student learning is documented via digital portfolios, and we issue detailed reports twice a year. Our open door policy ensures parents are always able to meet with their child’s teachers at a mutually convenient time to discuss any concerns, ideas or questions they may have. * Please note that nursery for children 2 years of age will not be offered in 20-21.

We believe that the diversity of our teaching body is important as we deliver a curriculum, not exclusively Canadian, that draws from the best curricula globally. Having two campuses in Singapore means that our teachers are able to collaborate cross campus to develop programmes, best practice and learning experiences. Over 65% of our teachers have multiple degrees or postgraduate qualifications, and many have IB experience (eg IB examiners, IB workshop leaders, etc). Many of our support staff are Singaporean, providing a unique connection to our home country of Singapore. Perhaps more important though is our teachers’ commitment to developing in our students the skills that they will need in order to navigate an ever changing world. This happens across all levels of the school - from&nbsp;Kindergarten&nbsp;all the way through to Grade 12. At CIS, our commitment to ongoing professional development sees us hosting a range of professional development workshops for our own teachers, IB teachers and leaders in the region, and educators from the greater regional community.

Our Kindergarten children learn in a dedicated Kindergarten wing, while Primary and Secondary students attend most classes in designated Primary and Secondary zones. Kindergarten and Primary classrooms are organised by grade levels, and Secondary classrooms are organised by subject and discipline. All classrooms at Lakeside spill out into learning pods - large open spaces that are highly versatile and support a range of learning needs. In Kindergarten and Primary, teachers can use them for experiments, exhibitions and celebrations, while Secondary School pods are used as study and collaboration zones. Lakeside’s indoor facilities include dedicated STEAM makerspaces, green room, digital recording studio, music and science labs, an arts centre, a 500-seat theatre, a gymnasium and multi-storey library.

<div class="text-block default-padding" style="background-color:#ffffff; color: #3d3935;" xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/html"> Middle Years Programme Underpinned by the MYP framework, our stimulating and rigourous curriculum supports each child in reaching their personal potential, and best prepares them for the rigours of the DP programme. Our students think deeply about issues, work collaboratively, solve problems creatively, and communicate across a variety of media. In the MYP, students are encouraged to make practical connections between their learning and the real world. They develop understanding in traditional subject areas and see the relationships between them. We help our students develop the knowledge, skills, and attitudes essential for success in the DP. Spanning Grades 7 to 10, the MYP consists of eight core subjects: Language and Literature in English or Chinese, Mathematics, Science, Individuals and Societies, Language Acquisition in French, Chinese, Spanish or English, Design, Arts - Music, Drama, Visual Arts or Media (grades 9-10 only in 20-21) and Health & Physical Education. Students are also required to participate in a range of Service as Action activities. Grade 10 design students’ crisis design project <div class="text-block default-padding" style="background-color:#ffffff; color: #000000;" xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/html"> Diploma Programme During their final two years of secondary school, our students study the IB Diploma Programme (IBDP), a comprehensive and challenging two-year curriculum that includes coursework and leads to final examinations. The Diploma Programme incorporates the best elements of national systems, without being based on any one. Globally regarded as one of the premier High School Diploma programmes, the DP is designed for highly motivated secondary school students aged 16 to 19. Research reveals that universities in the UK and USA have a high regard for IB graduates, and the skills and attitudes developed. Our students have consistently scored above the IBDP world average and in the last five years have been accepted to over 350 leading universities around the world. Students select one subject from each of the six subject groups, and complete the core three requirements: the extended essay, theory of knowledge (TOK) and creativity, action and service (CAS). IB DP courses in 2021/2022 are outlined in this guide. Occasionally, there are a small number of students for whom the full IBDP is not the best option. These students study a reduced number of IBDP subjects and are awarded IB certificates and a CIS High School Diploma instead. The CIS Diploma is recognised by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) and widely accepted by universities and other higher education institutions. Creativity, Activity and Service (CAS) <div class="text-block default-padding" style="background-color:#019cde; color: #ffffff;" xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/html"> A holisticapproach Our house system builds a sense of belonging and pride, and our SMART (Students Maximising Achievement Responsibility on Time) programme provides opportunities for students to excel and develop new-found passions, whether intellectual, sporting, entrepreneurial, creative or service related. Excursion Week and field-based investigations see our students exercising leadership and learning first-hand about the world’s people, cultures and humanitarian and environmental concerns. Leadership is encouraged across all areas of the school. Each day for 40 minutes, students are engaged in SMART (Students Maximising Achievement Responsibility on Time). SMART sees students participating in a variety of student initiated activities that seek to encourage independence and self directed learning. Activities range from academic enrichment and support (eg meeting with subject teachers for additional help) to student led clubs and initiatives such as student council and Model United Nations. Our house system is designed to build a strong sense of community and pride within our Grades 1 to 12 student body, and helps students develop leadership and teamwork skills. Students regularly participate in house events, and our house captains are charged with helping to foster team spirit and a sense of belonging. Learning at CIS is not just confined to the classroom. Students participate in a range of relevant and engaging hands-on outdoor learning opportunities including field trips and field investigations which allow them to apply their learning in a real world context. Excursion Week sees students in Grades 7 to 12 travelling to countries such as Thailand, China, Sri Lanka, Vietnam, Cambodia and Canada to learn about the world’s people, cultures and humanitarian and environmental concerns first hand. Please note that all excursions have been cancelled in 20-21 due to the ongoing pandemic. In Secondary, students are presented with a wide range of leadership opportunities. From the traditional student council model with an active and engaged student executive committee, to sporting captains, theatrical leads and peer tutors, student leadership creates value for both the leaders themselves and our student cohort. As they develop leadership skills that are underpinned by our core values, our students are ready to embrace the challenges that lie ahead of them and act as leaders both locally and internationally.

<div class="text-block default-padding" style="background-color:#ffffff; color: #3d3935;" xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/html"> IB Primary Years Programme At CIS, we follow the IB Primary Years Programme (PYP) from Pre-Kindergarten through to Grade 6. The PYP is a curricular framework based on the most current best-practice educational research from around the world. As an IB World School, we regularly participate in external audits to ensure that we offer a rigorous academic programme that meets the highest standards in teaching and learning. The PYP prepares students for the intellectual challenges of further education and their future careers, while focusing on the development of the whole child as an inquirer, both in the classroom and in the world at large. The programme aims to develop students’ academic, social and emotional well-being, through a focus on international-mindedness and strong personal values. The CIS Curriculum is built on the PYP framework of five essential elements - knowledge, concepts, skills, attitudes, and action. These elements help equip students with the skills needed to be successful, both now and in the future. We work with the five elements to construct a rigorous and challenging primary curriculum that meets the needs of an international community, while at the same time developing unique and effective programmes that meet the needs of the broader school community. The PYP consists of: The written curriculum, which explains what PYP students will learn;The taught curriculum, which sets out how educators teach the PYP; andThe assessed curriculum. The PYP is transdisciplinary in nature, meaning that it focuses on issues that go across subject areas, and incorporates, where possible, local and global issues into the curriculum, asking students to look at six related, transdisciplinary themes and to consider the links between them. In the PYP, students engage in six large, transdisciplinary themes organised as Units of Inquiry (UOIs). These UOIs are outlined in our school-wide Programme of Inquiry (POI) and are carefully designed to build from one year to the next as students' progress through the school. With the UOI at its core, language, mathematics, social studies, and science standards are addressed in authentic and meaningful contexts. The programme is further complemented through Additional languages (Chinese and French), Physical Education, and Arts (Visual Arts, Drama, Music and Dance) all taught by specialist teachers in their respective field. As an IB World School, we are active participants in an international community of teachers, students and educational researchers, and we are fully committed to recruiting and retaining proven professionals. Perhaps most importantly, when your child enters Primary School, they are greeted by a happy, nurturing, creative, educated, effective and highly dedicated teacher. Visit the website for more about the PYP or the IBO. A student&#039;s journey through the PYP exhibition <div class="text-block default-padding" style="background-color:#fefdff; color: #303030;" xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/html"> IB Middle Years Programme The IB Middle Years Programme (MYP) at CIS spans Grades 7 through 10, and provides students with the knowledge, skills, and attitudes to be active and effective participants in the 21st century. Students who complete the MYP are well-prepared to undertake the IB Diploma Programme (DP). The MYP is a challenging curriculum framework that helps teachers establish goals, focus units of study using the ‘Global Contexts’ and conduct meaningful assessments. The MYP framework encourages students to make practical connections between their studies and the real world. Students are expected to be well-versed in the traditional subject areas of our current curriculum, and they are encouraged to see the relationships between them. They are expected to develop a genuine understanding of their own history and culture, and are encouraged to appreciate the traditions of other people and other places. The MYP aims to help students develop their personal understanding, their emerging sense of self and responsibility in their community. MYP teachers organise the curriculum with appropriate attention to: Teaching and learning in context. Students learn best when their learning experiences have context and are connected to their lives and the world that they have experienced. Using global contexts, MYP students explore human identity, global challenges and what it means to be internationally-minded. Conceptual understanding. Concepts are big ideas that have relevance within specific disciplines and across subject areas. MYP students use concepts as a vehicle to inquire into issues and ideas of personal, local and global significance and examine knowledge holistically. Approaches to learning (ATL). A unifying thread throughout all MYP subject groups, approaches to learning provide the foundation for independent learning and encourage the application of their knowledge and skills in unfamiliar contexts. Developing and applying these skills help students learn how to learn. Service (community service) and Action (learning by doing and experiencing). Service and Action have always been shared values of the IB community. Students take action when they apply what they are learning in the classroom and beyond. IB learners strive to be caring members of the community who demonstrate a commitment to service&mdash;making a positive difference to the lives of others and to the environment. Service as action is an integral part of the programme, especially in the MYP community project. Language and identity. MYP students learn at least two languages. Learning to communicate in a variety of ways is fundamental to their development of intercultural understanding and crucial to their identity affirmation.

CIS explains the Unit of Inquiry <div class="text-block default-padding" style="background-color:#ffffff; color: #3d3935;" xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/html"> IB Diploma Programme The IB Diploma Programme (IB DP) was born in the 1960’s in an effort to establish a common curriculum and university entry credential for students moving from one country to another. Designed for highly motivated secondary school students aged 16 to 19 years, it is a demanding pre-university course of study that leads to examinations. The IB DP curriculum is represented by the hexagon with six subject areas supported by the core. Each candidate is required to study one subject from each of the subject areas. A minimum of three subjects must be taken at the Higher Level (HL), allowing for specialisation or focus of interest. The remaining courses are taken at the Standard Level (SL). HL courses require 240 instructional hours versus the 150 required by SL courses. HL courses also require additional assessment. The Extended Essay (EE), a core element of the IB DP, is a 4000-word essay and is an in-depth study of a focused topic chosen from the list of approved Diploma Programme subjects. It is intended to promote high-level research and writing skills, intellectual discovery and creativity. Assessment is criterion related, and judges each student in relation to identified assessment criteria and not in relation to the work of other students. The EE is externally assessed by IB examiners, and is marked on a scale from 0 to 36. The Theory of Knowledge (TOK) course encourages critical thinking about knowledge itself. What makes TOK unique, and distinctively different from standard academic disciplines, is its process. In this process, students’ thinking and their understanding of knowledge as a human construction are shaped, enriched and deepened. Connections may be made between knowledge encountered in different DP subjects, through CAS or in extended essay research. Because the subject matter of the course is defined in terms of knowledge issues, there is no end to the valid questions that may arise in a TOK course. The assessment model in Theory of Knowledge (TOK) comprises two components, both of which should be completed within the 100 hours designated for the course. Creativity, Action, Service (CAS) is at the heart of the DP. It is one of the three essential elements in every student’s DP experience. It involves students in a range of activities alongside their academic studies throughout the Diploma Programme. Creativity: Arts, and other experiences that involve creative thinking.Action: Physical exertion contributing to a healthy lifestyle, complementing academic work elsewhere in the Diploma Programme.Service: An unpaid and voluntary exchange that has a learning benefit for the student. The rights, dignity and autonomy of all those involved are respected. The CAS Programme aims to develop students who are: Reflective thinkers&mdash;they understand their own strengths and limitations, identify goals and devise strategies for personal growth.Willing to accept new challenges and new roles.Aware of themselves as members of communities with responsibilities towards each other and the environment.Active participants in sustained, collaborative projects.Balanced&mdash;they enjoy and find significance in a range of activities involving intellectual, physical, creative and emotional experiences. Assessment in the DP Student's achievement is assessed according to his/her own ability in regards to the criteria specified within each subject group area. Most subjects have an internal assessment component, though the majority of the subject grade is carried out via external assessment. Internal assessments vary between subject groups, however, all aspects of internal assessment, initially marked by the teacher in charge, will be externally moderated by IBO moderators to ensure uniform standards are being met. External assessments are written examinations based on all or part of the course syllabus. In some courses, oral examinations / visual art presentations / theatre productions are recorded and submitted and externally assessed by an IBO examiner.
