Chinese English Bilingual Programme Equal exposure in both Chinese and English CIS' pioneering bilingual Chinese-English programme is designed to allow students to be fluent communicators in both languages, providing them with an edge in an extremely competitive and ever-changing world. Available to students in junior kindergarten through to grade 6, our bilingual programme is offered at both our Lakeside and Tanjong Katong campuses. It is fully aligned with the IB PYP and includes two qualified teachers per class: one native English speaker and one native Chinese speaker. CIS’ Chinese-English bilingual programme was one of the first to be offered in Singapore by an international school. Our established track record makes us one of the most experienced and trusted international schools in the region to educate students in becoming fluent communicators in both languages.

Chinese English Bilingual Kindergarten students Our bilingual programme allows students to be fluent communicators in Chinese and English, providing them with an edge in an extremely competitive world. In our bilingual programme, students attend classes (with the respective teacher) in English one day, and in Chinese the next, ensuring equal exposure to both languages. Additional Chinese language acquisition classes are taught five times each week by separate native speaking teachers with students grouped according to their proficiency levels. There is no limit to the number of classes available per grade (we currently have 30 bilingual classes) and a specific pathway has been designed for students to maintain their Chinese in Secondary School and the Middle Years Programme (MYP). From Grade 2 onwards, students must meet the specific language requirements to enter the programme.  For all classes in Chinese, our teachers follow the highly respected Big Apple Programme, a collection of 130 reference books written by our K – 12 Principal for Chinese Language and Culture, Huali Xiong. A key feature of this programme is learning about Chinese culture as research shows speaking a language without understanding its culture, has very little real-world value. We also support students in their learning with a wide range of resources including a collection of over 1,000 Chinese fiction books. In May 2017, our students once again outperformed all other students in Singapore in the Youth Chinese Test (YCT). Our year-on-year outstanding results demonstrate the overall high quality of our programme.

STEAM

https://www.cis.edu.sg/learning/steam

STEAM Education Learning in a real world context STEAM at CIS is an engaging interdisciplinary approach that integrates the areas of science, technology, entrepreneurship, arts and mathematics. Unlike traditional teaching models where these subjects are taught independently, STEAM supports our students’ natural curiosity and creativity, and helps them understand how each discipline is connected and related in the real world. STEAM in the Primary years STEAM helps our students make connections across subject areas as they invent, analyse and explore concepts. STEAM in the Kindergarten years STEAM helps our students make connections across subject areas as they invent, analyse and explore concepts. STEAM in the Secondary years STEAM helps our students make connections across subject areas as they invent, analyse and explore concepts. STEAM in the Secondary years STEAM helps our students make connections across subject areas as they invent, analyse and explore concepts. The CIS STEAM approach ensures that our students are motivated, capable of making informed decisions and able to find solutions for problems that the real world is facing. STEAM helps our students make connections across subject areas as they invent, analyse and explore concepts. This mode of learning is motivating and engaging because it is relevant and relates to the real world. Our student-centred, inquiry-based approach ensures that teamwork and communication are a major focus in STEAM activities. Our students, from Kindergarten to Secondary School, have the freedom to think critically, creatively, and innovatively as we challenge them to find solutions to problems. Even if they fail the first time, they are inspired to try again in a safe and supportive learning environment. Our STEAM makerspaces are spaces that encourage the sharing of resources and knowledge and learning through hands-on exploration. Our makerspaces are part lab, part shop, part conference room, and are designed to foster a culture of teamwork, collaboration and design thinking. In these spaces, our students build and work on projects together, using equipment that is both traditional (wood working machinery and sewing machines) and cutting edge (makerbot 3D printers, GCC laser engravers and cutting machines and newspaper styxx rolling machines). Our annual STEAM Fair in April is an action-packed day that allows parents and children to engage in innovative STEAM activities that include: designing and flying your own Balsa plane, building a roller coaster, learning to code and control robots, creating artwork with drawbots, and designing and advertising shoes. Our STEAM Fair, open to the public, is a fantastic opportunity to create something new and make connections between ideas that at first may seem unrelated.

From Kindergarten to Grade 12, arts experiences build confidence and are the perfect avenue to showcase creativity and experience teamwork. Through the arts, our students are engaged in imaginative and productive activity as they explore different cultures; use arts as a form of communication; and learn about the elements of performance, production and stage and event management. Arts opportunities include a range of musical ensembles and bands, choral groups, productions, performances and exhibits. These events run throughout the school year and across all divisions as appropriate. Our students also participate in regional events and competitions like the Singapore Youth Film Festival where two of our students recently won best overall film and best acting. At times, performances and showcases are conducted in another language such as Chinese or French. This multilingual approach and focus provides our students with opportunities to practice another language, while developing multilingual skills and competency in second or third languages. Facilities that support our thriving arts programme include fully equipped drama and dance studios, a 500-seat theatre (Lakeside), music and music practice rooms, and an audio-visual suite supported with the latest equipment (Lakeside).

Rich learning experiences Learning experiences are made richer by the appropriate use of technology, and skills learnt are directly transferable to the workplace. Rich learning experiences Learning experiences are made richer by the appropriate use of technology, and skills learnt are directly transferable to the workplace. In today’s world, literacy has evolved beyond its basic definition of knowing how to read and write. Everyone is required to know how to process, deliver and receive information in today’s highly digitalised world. It is inevitable that the definition of literacy includes components of digital literacy, which emphasises the ability to use digital technology, communication tools and networks to locate, evaluate, use and create information. Learning experiences are made richer by the appropriate use of technology, and skills learnt are directly transferable to the workplace. Led by our Digital Literacy coaches, our ‘One to World’ programme ensures our students learn how to think critically and ethically as they harness technology in their learning; behave safely and appropriately online; to identify what information is important online, use technology as a tool to showcase their skills and talents. iPads and MacBooks Devices are required for a student's first day of school - this is compulsory. The most recent operating system must be installed. In grades 4 to 6, students must bring their own iPad to school every day. A protective case is required.

Service and leadership Compelled to act At CIS, we value the connections we have with one another as a school community, as well as those we cultivate locally, regionally and globally. We’re committed to promoting conversations about positive change, but more importantly we believe in taking action.

Compelled to act Our students, from Kindergarten to Grade 12, are provided with meaningful opportunities to engage in service and to practise leadership skills, as a preparation for life beyond CIS. The two arms of service at CIS are: local service, where students connect with members of the Singapore community; and global service, where they work with regional NGOs and partner organisations, actively addressing the issues they care about. Our students, from Kindergarten to Grade 12, are provided with meaningful opportunities to engage in service and to practise leadership skills, as a preparation for life beyond CIS. Through classroom investigations, community partnerships, and other service and leadership opportunities, they actively seek ways to contribute and give back. This approach fosters empathy as students develop an understanding of the challenges the world’s people and environments face. Service activities vary in terms of time commitment. They can be one-time events, year-long or multi-year commitments. Students across the school are often involved in leading activities that focus on improving some aspects of school life, or in raising awareness of issues facing the community. In Secondary School, students must satisfy the IB Creativity, Activity and Service (CAS) requirements to complete their courses.

Outdoor learning A holistic experience At CIS, we offer a range of experiential learning opportunities where students learn beyond the confines of the traditional classroom. This mode of learning is both memorable and engaging, and encourages students to apply their learning in a hands-on, minds-on manner.

A holistic experience Students engage in a range of experiential learning opportunities where they learn beyond the confines of the traditional classroom. Outdoor learning Programmes vary in length and focus, and the level of challenge increases as students progress through the respective grade levels. Outdoor learning programmes include Open Minds in Primary School, field trips, Secondary DP field investigations and Excursion Week. Open Minds sees Primary students (Grades 1 to 6) spend up to a week in a variety of real world settings. Investigation topics are linked to both our curriculum and the units of inquiry found within the Primary Years Programme (PYP). First-hand experience with artifacts, field experts, and opportunities to go behind the scenes create unique moments of extremely powerful hands-on, minds-on learning. Excursion Week sees students in Grades 4 to 11 travelling to countries such as Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Laos, China, Vietnam, Cambodia and Canada with their teachers and peers. Distance travelled is commensurate with age, and Excursion Week provides students with a unique opportunity to develop a sense of independence, as well as an understanding of global issues, and other people and communities. Secondary excursions have a more concentrated focus on community outreach, and students participate in a range of activities including house building in Cambodia, planting friendship groves in Ladakh, and working with NGOs to help those in need. Fieldwork in the Diploma Programme (DP) is part of a student’s coursework and counts towards their internal assessment. Fieldwork serves a distinct purpose: to expand, reinforce and extend concepts and skills that are taught in class. It enriches the study of particular themes within the course, and adds to students’ knowledge, understanding and awareness, helping to make learning engaging and relevant. As they learn through practical work, students collaborate and develop investigative, analytical and organisational skills. Stories Read more ​SK’s outdoor learning experience.
