The Primary Curriculum aligns itself with the Singaporean Curriculum which focuses on the three learning domains: Life Skills, Knowledge Skills and Subject Based Learning which ensures the acquisition of knowledge and values and competencies to face the challenges of the 21st century.


Characteristics

The curriculum aims to develop the whole child, not just academic abilities. The focus is on equipping children with the necessary social skills and academic knowledge so that learning is engaging and meaningful and can be related to real life experiences. Teachers use student-centred approaches when planning lessons showing awareness of prior learning and assess pupils’ progress formally and informally. Inter-disciplinary projects feature in the curriculum and allow students to explore a range of questions using a cross-curricular approach.


Subjects

The Primary Curriculum is subject based and the core subjects taught are English, Mathematics, Science and Chinese. In Lower Primary these subjects are taught by Form Teachers and in Upper Primary more subjects are taught by specialist teachers. Bahasa Indonesia is also an important part of the curriculum as well as Information and Communication Technology, Social Studies, Physical Education, Health Education, Arts and Crafts, Music, PPKN and Religion.


Outcomes

On completing the primary stage of education, we expect the students to understand and respond to a range of situations confidently and to have an awareness of the importance of respecting people from a range of cultures and countries. Students should understand the important of processes and systems and be able to apply their knowledge to a range of subjects, taking pride in their work and demonstrating that they are independent and confident learners. Students should be aware of the importance of their own nationality whilst thinking globally about a range of issues and their impact on the world. Students will know how to communicate effectively and work as a team and how to maintain the ‘family ethos’ of SIS Bona Vista.

The SIS Secondary School Curriculum adopts both the Singaporean and the Cambridge University programme. This programme is for students from the age group of 13 – 16 years old. The students are made familiar with a broad range of experiences. The programme also encourages greater interaction and looks to students making the best bonds and strong friendships for life.


General characteristics of the SIS Secondary Curriculum

The Secondary programme builds on the foundation of the early primary years. It also looks to bringing out each student’s individual interest and liking for the various subject matters. The Syllabus is streamlined without diluting students’ preparedness for higher education. This frees up time for our students to focus on core knowledge and life skills, and to provide greater space for flexibility in carrying out school-based activities in the curriculum. SIS offers a comprehensive Community Service Programme where the students engage in deliberating, planning, implementing, and reflecting on their Community Service, thereby sustaining high quality service learning. Secondary and JC students are required to perform a fixed number of hours of community service. Most international colleges generally make Community Service an essential part of their entry requirements.


Subjects Offered

Lower Secondary students (Secondary 1 and 2) are enrolled in the following subjects: English Language/ ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages); Chinese Language/ Indonesian Language/ French/XESOL (Extra English for Speakers of Other Languages); Mathematics; Science; Computer Science; Geography; History; Literature; Art and Design; Physical Education; Music and Research Education.


Subject choices for Upper Secondary are: English/ESOL; English Literature; Mathematics; Additional Mathematics; Coordinated Science; Biology; Chemistry; Physics; Chinese; French; Indonesian Language; Accounting; Information Technology; Art and Design; History; Research Education; Business Studies; Economics and Physical Education.


International Assessments:

  1. Check Point by the University of Cambridge offered in more than 50 countries.
  2. IGCSE by the University of Cambridge offered in more than 150 countries.

The Diploma Programme: preparing students for success in higher education and to be active participants in a global society


What is the IB Diploma Programme (DP)?

The IB Diploma Programme (DP) is an academically challenging and balanced programme of education with final examinations that prepares students, aged 16 to 19, for success at university and in life beyond. It has been designed to address the intellectual, social, emotional and physical well-being of students. The programme has gained recognition and respect from the world’s leading universities.


The curriculum

DP students must choose one course from each of five subject groups delivering a breadth of knowledge and understanding in their best language, additional language(s), individuals and societies, the sciences and mathematics. Furthermore, students must also choose either an arts course from the arts group or a second course from one of the other subject groups.


DP courses can be taken at higher level or standard level. At least three and not more than four are taken at higher level (240 teaching hours), while the remaining courses are taken at standard level (150 teaching hours).


In addition to disciplinary and interdisciplinary study, the DP features three core elements that broaden students’ educational experience and challenge them to apply their knowledge and skills.


The Diploma Programme Core

The extended essay asks students to engage in independent research through an in-depth study of a question relating to one of the DP subjects they are studying. The world studies extended essay option allows students to focus on a topic of global significance which they examine through the lens of at least two DP subjects.


Theory of knowledge (TOK) develops a coherent approach to learning that unifies the academic disciplines. In this course on critical thinking, students inquire into the nature of knowing and deepen their understanding of knowledge as a human construction.


Creativity, activity, service (CAS) emphasizes helping students to develop their own identities, in accordance with the ethical principles embodied in the IB mission statement and the IB learner profile. CAS complements a challenging academic programme 
in a holistic way, providing opportunities for self-determination, collaboration, accomplishment and enjoyment. It involves students in a range of activities alongside their academic studies throughout the DP. The three strands of CAS are creativity (exploring and extending ideas leading to an original or interpretive product or performance), activity (physical exertion contributing to a healthy lifestyle) and service (collaborative and reciprocal engagement with the community in response to an authentic need).


Assessments

Students take written examinations at the end of the programme which are marked by external IB examiners. Students also complete assessment tasks in the school which are either initially marked by teachers and then moderated by external moderators or sent directly to external examiners.
 
The marks awarded for each course range from 1 (lowest) to 7 (highest). Students can also be awarded up to three additional points for their combined results on theory of knowledge and the extended essay. The diploma is awarded to students who gain at least 24 points, subject to certain minimum levels of performance across the whole programme and to satisfactory participation in the creativity, activity, service requirement. The highest total that a DP student can be awarded is 45 points.
 
Assessment is criterion-related, which means student performance is measured against specified assessment criteria based on the aims and objectives of each subject’s curriculum, rather than the performance of other students taking the same examinations. The range of scores that students have attained remains statistically stable, and universities value the rigour and consistency of Diploma Programme assessment practice.

 

Co-Curricular Activities

The outstanding Co-Curricular Activities offered at SIS schools are unique to each campus. However, each activity, at each school, is organised and monitored by trained professionals and staff that are passionate about teaching the unique skills required. Leadership in the boardroom often begins with leadership on the pitch and SIS Co-Curricular make full use of these engaging activities to drive home positive values related to team play, individual development and leadership.
