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 and Upper Primary these 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 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 Palembang.

Secondary

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.

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.
