A School Day at Singapore International School
We schedule our academic calendar for optimal learning outcomes, providing students with enough rest and relaxation to keep their growing minds alert, without breaking for too long, to ensure continuity of learning for the 40 school weeks of the academic year.
At Singapore International School, the academic year starts in mid-August, includes four terms, and concludes in mid-July.
There are school holidays between each term, a one month summer break at the end of Term 4 in July; a two week break over the Christmas period, and local national holidays throughout the year.
Class timetables are scheduled in 45 minute blocks with classes normally commencing at 8:30 a.m. and concluding at 4:15 p.m.
The school day is organized into 11 sessions and scheduled to allow the best use of school facilities.
Singapore International School provides a range of after-school activities designed to develop and build on student’s interests and talents.
These acitivites are conducted from 4:15 – 5:00 p.m. most days after school. The range of activities varies each term. A small fee is charged to cover the costs of running the after-school activities programme.
Singapore International School is committed to providing a safe, secure, and high quality learning environment in which students can develop their individual talents, interests and abilities through a curriculum that fosters the intellectual, physical, social and moral development of the student.
School excursions allow students to learn and develop skills in a real life context and are often linked to the current curriculum programme. These excursions are a valuable teaching and learning opportunity.
Singapore International School believes that cultural intelligence and international skills are critical for success in a globalized world. Our Overseas Study opportunities are designed to support the development of cultural intelligence and international skills in our students.
Several major school events are held every school year at Singapore International School. These events provide SIS students with an opportunity to compete, celebrate, present and develop.
They provide the school community with an opportunity for involvement and support. Singapore International School sees these major events as an opportunity to showcase our students and school.
