The research is in, and it turns out that kindness in schools reduces bullying, improves student health and helps children focus on their academic progress. At One World International School (OWIS), we trust the experts and we believe our experience, so we know kindness works.

With an age-appropriate curriculum, the children should be introduced to various academic concepts through hands-on, play-based activities that fully engage them.

A Week at Primary School

Posted by Erin Smith on 08/08/18 07:00

Each morning your child will arrive, ready to learn, to be warmly greeted by their class   teachers. Once they have unpacked their bags, they organise themselves and prepare for the day.  Our students collectively call out the day, date and timetable as they learn to make better sense of the calendar and their world.  We start the day with quiet reading and reflect upon the day’s global news as well as student announcements and events; all while creating a positive mindset for the day ahead.

In a traditional classroom, students are encouraged to retain information through memorisation. It's a passive method of learning that may help a student achieve an adequate test score. But information gained in this manner is often forgotten, because the child who 'learned' it had no active role in gaining the knowledge - other than that of leaning over a tablet or copying words from a whiteboard. There is little-to-no inquiry-led learning in this type of classroom.

Our Early Childhood Educators Lay the Foundation for Primary School Success

Posted by Dawn Ross on 25/07/18 17:00

When the pieces of an early childhood education come together well, they lay the foundation for a successful school career for the child. They will be able to enter their later school years confidently and ready to tackle the challenges that lie before them. At OWIS, our early childhood teachers remain the foundation for this education. They understand how to immerse students in our material, guiding them to explore and learn about their world in exciting new ways each day. Our students finish their early childhood education ready to succeed in their primary education.

Parents who are relocating to a new country often find themselves faced with a lot of decisions that have lasting consequences for their children. One of the most important decisions that parents have to make is deciding which school they will send their child to once they have moved to a new country.
