We pay attention to each child and create an environment where each student can thrive as an individual and a valued member of a community.

The curriculum of SIS PIK provides students with the opportunities to take risks, ask questions, explore ideas, and develop their imaginations while engaging them through active learning and rigorous study. The environment at SIS PIK is designed to promote a love of knowledge, appreciation of disciplinary expertise, and the motivation to reach high academic and personal objectives. In each division of the school, teachers build rich and inspiring learning experiences to help students participate in our changing world as future global citizens.

SIS PIK offers a most unusual educational experience, weaving together the best of three educational traditions: Singapore, Cambridge, and the IB. A profound respect for education and a rigorous approach to learning are foundation stones of our curriculum.

We encourage students to explore the road less traveled, to ask difficult and thoughtful questions, to take intellectual and creative risks, and to dare to dream. We want our students to live the credo: All things are possible.

We believe each child brings an “extraordinary gift” to our community. We cherish our students’ curious minds and embrace every opportunity to help them flourish emotionally and intellectually, now and in the future.

I warmly welcome you to SISPIK, and our caring community.

A Culture of Giving

It has been very sad to hear of the recent earthquake and tsunami devastating Palu and Donggala.  Our new school term opened with a moving, full school assembly to remember the fallen in Sulawesi.  As a school we stood united, in a minute of silence, to remember those who lost their lives.  This is yet another heart breaking earthquake, one in a series of many, shaking Indonesia to its core.  The ceremony was incredibly touching.  Our teachers and non teaching staff shared prayers from all the religions represented at SISPIK.  We stood united in prayer, faith and peace.

As we stood in silence to remember those who have lost homes, loved ones and even their lives – amongst the despair and sadness of the ruins of Sulawesi, I felt glimmer of hope.  I felt hopeful because even in our darkest moments, the love of our SISPIK community thrives.  I have an inbox of emails from students keen to fundraise, eager to help and excited to be part of rebuilding Sulawesi.  Our students care deeply for those less fortunate than themselves.  They care fervently for their fellow Indonesians facing adversity and hardship.  At every opportunity – they want to extend a caring hand to help.

I thank our parents for entrusting us with your children each day.  We are a school joyously filled by children who want to give back. Our children strive to make the world a better place. I feel incredibly proud to be part of SISPIK.

An update on our fundraising efforts

We would sincerely like to thank you for your support for our appeal for the Lombok earthquake.   We raised almost 85 million rupiah!  We appreciate the very generous support from our SISPIK community.  Over the October break, a team of JC students, Mr Guntur and Ms Agus visited Lombok to distribute your donations. Please read the attachment below to find out more about their trip.   In an effort to create greater clarity and transparency, please see the report below to see where your very generous donations have gone.

As you may be aware, another devastating earthquake and subsequent tsunami have hit the island of the Suliwasi.   Although the entire island was affected, the towns of Palu and Donggala were decimated. Our students have responded with love and care for the people of Suliwasi. At every opportunity – they have extended a caring hand to help. Our Secondary students held a bake sale, and raised over 8 million rupiah.  Our Primary students held a garage sale, and not only managed to declutter their toy boxes, but also raised over 11 million rupiah.  Please stay tuned to find out more about our up coming Family Day Bazaar, and Charity Performance.

What Makes a Great School?

I often ponder the question what makes a great school?  I want to share with you a book I have read which is very inspiring.  It is called “Creating Innovators.  The Making of Young People who will Change the World.”  As a school, this is a great question for us to ask; how can we create young people who can change the world?  Wagner argues that social innovation is of  importance equal to technological innovation.  Our future leaders will be ones who solve social problems creatively, collaboratively, and sustainably.  Creative innovators will be required to societies biggest problems such as global climate change, world peace and pollution.

I often ponder the question what makes a great school?  I want to share with you a book I have read which is very inspiring.  It is called “Creating Innovators.  The Making of Young People who will Change the World.”  As a school, this is a great question for us to ask; how can we create young people who can change the world?  Wagner argues that social innovation is of  importance equal to technological innovation.  Our future leaders will be ones who solve social problems creatively, collaboratively, and sustainably.  Creative innovators will be required to societies biggest problems such as global climate change, world peace and pollution.

The question becomes, how can we create students who will be future leaders who can change the world? What would our school look like, if we want to create future leaders and creative innovators?

Dr Wagner, asks the question; where does it start? How can we inspire students with the desire to change the world, and how can we help them build the skills to make those changes happen?  Dr. Wagner identifies in his books the central tenant in the development of every creative innovator: Passion.   He explains that the journey of innovative leadership begins with play, the activities young people find most fun, engaging, even whimsical, and then advances into an energizing and motivating passion, finally flowering as a deep and abiding purpose.  The path to success lies in students creating their own personal journey of play to passion to purpose.

We are a school which wishes to stretch beyond our academic program.  We want to give our students opportunities to explore their passions beyond the classroom through our school camps, learning journeys and our CCA program. Currently, we are in the selection process for our prefects.  Listening to our students explain how they will wish to become student leaders is incredibly inspiring.  Their passion drives their purpose.  I want to thank all the parents for supporting all of our programs.  By allowing students to explore, try out new activities, take risks, and take part in new events and programs – our students will grow from play to passion to purpose.

As always, we endevour to improve.  We constantly evaluate, and review our progress in our quest to become a great school. It is important that this process is a partnership with our parents.  As always, we welcome your input and feedback.

Building Character through Sport

Through our sports program we wish to develop a vibrant sporting ethos at SISPIK. We endeavor to develop the whole child, whilst fostering an ‘active life’ philosophy and the promotion of a lifetime investment in sport and physical activity. This sporting ethos celebrates enjoyment, breadth of participation and excellence both on and off the field.  Through sports, students understand excellent sportsmanship and the notion of fair play.  The goal for our sports program is effort, improvement and personal achievement rather than purely winning or losing.

Through our sports CCAs we wish to develop a vibrant sporting ethos at SISPIK.

Studies have shown there are strong academic benefits from physical activity and that playing sports can actually increase success in the classroom. Various data demonstrate that athletes have higher grade point averages, higher standardized test scores, better attendance and a better chance of going to college.  There are also life long benefits in terms of career as well.  A survey of individuals at the level of executive Vice President of 75 Fortune 500 companies showed that 95% of them played sports in high school. The leadership skills and development of teamwork, hard work, and determination might help prepare students to be leaders at work and in their communities later in life.

The research also reinforces the benefits to character from sports.

Self-confidence and self-esteem

Several studies suggest playing sports develops a child’s self-confidence and self-esteem. A pat on the back, high-five from a teammate, or handshake after a match really boosts a child’s confidence. Words of praise and encouragement from the coach, parents and other players raise the self-esteem. An important thing to remember is that a child’s self-esteem should not be distinguished by victory or loss. Constructive criticism is key to children accepting and working on their weaknesses. It also helps when you ask ‘did you enjoy the game?’ rather than “did you win?”

Manage Emotions

We know how emotions run high in sports – whether watching a sport or playing it. Channeling negative emotions can be tough for children and a good coach will help them realize how negative emotional stress could hurt their performance. Such wisdom ingrained earlier on in life will help them deal with other life challenges in the future.

Discipline

Every sport requires some mental, physical and tactical discipline. Following rules, obeying the coach, practicing restraint, etc. are all forms of discipline children learn through sports. Discipline enables people to reach their full potential and realize their goals – a trait prevalent in all successful people.

Social skills

Kids playing sports learn to interact not only with kids their age, but also with the older and younger players on the team, the coach, sports authorities, etc. They also develop a sense of belonging and get an opportunity to make new friends. These communication and social skills help them in their future relationships and careers.

Patience

Practice plays a large role in improving performance in any sport or activity. ‘Practice makes you perfect’ but guess what practice and perfection need? Patience. Athletics teach kids how to keep practicing and be patient in order to see the results.

Perseverance

Just like patience and practice, sports also need perseverance and dedication. There are highs and lows during practice sessions and matches. Kids learn to power through and persevere even during the bad times, thus becoming more resilient. Practicing perseverance at a young age gives them better coping skills and critical thinking skills to face bigger adversities in the future.

Accept defeat

In sports, just like in life, one cannot win all the time. Playing a sport teaches children this truth early on in life. Therefore, children learn how to accept defeat and lose graciously. They learn how not to get disheartened and to get back up and try again. It also teaches them about healthy competition.

Teamwork

“There’s no I in team”. Children learn that the team cannot win unless they all work together and play to each other’s strengths. They also learn how to become less selfish and not let ego get the best of them. Working together is an important trait in today’s life and learning how to do so early on helps kids become better team players in professional life.

Respect Authority

Following a set of rules, accepting decisions and taking direction is a big part of playing any sport. Through playing a game, children learn how to respect coaches, referees, peers and other elders.

Leadership Skills

Becoming captain or aspiring to become one, naturally teaches children how to become good leaders – how to talk to other teammates, manage team emotions, take one for the team, etc. They also put these skills to use outside the pitch or court making them good leaders that others want to follow.
