Language classes are a paid service, and are run by independent providers. We also provide our students with a wide range of opportunities for sporting development, both recreationally and competitively, throughout the school year. Each campus has its own representative teams, which compete in the ACSIS (Athletic Conference of Singapore International Schools) league. Through ACSIS sports, students represent CIS, competing against other international schools in age-based teams. Competitive and recreational sports are offered across three seasons, while some community sports, organised by independent providers, run all school year. Swimming (Lakeside only) is year-long competitive activity, with registration and trials conducted twice yearly. With the exception of primary co-curricular activities, students register for most activities via our online system in My.CIS. Registration for competitive sports is an indication of interest, with students proceeding to tryouts in most instances. Parents are able to view their child’s activity timetables in the registration system or My.CIS. Please note that season 1 activities in 20/21 have been cancelled due to the ongoing COVID pandemic.  Stories Loading... read more

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 It is compulsory for all students to have the required device from the first day of school.

Students’ Chinese literacy development is supported by our 36 level guided reading programme, and a well-established system to connect students learning to all other curriculum areas. Additionally, all students have Chinese language acquisition classes five times each week. These classes are taught by separate native speaking teachers, and students are grouped according to their proficiency levels for these classes. In Chinese language classes, teachers follow the highly respected Big Apple Programme, a collection of more than 130 levelled story books written by our Chinese Language and Bilingual School Principal, Huali Xiong. We currently have 47 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 Senior Kindergarten onwards, students must meet the specific language requirements to enter the programme. A key feature of our 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 8,000 Chinese fiction books. Over the past three years*, our students have 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. *YCT was cancelled in 2020 due to COVID 19. Stories Loading... read more
