Head of School’s Message
Mrs Judy Meiners
Head of School (2017- 2018 School Year)
Welcome Back Teachers, Students and Parents
We are excited about the teaching and learning that is happening in the school this year, which allows our teachers to support the holistic development of each child. Not only striving for strong academic achievement, we will be focusing on the 21st century skills of collaboration, communication, critical thinking, creativity and connectiveness in our classrooms.
In our Kindergarten and Primary One classrooms, our teachers have enjoyed the introduction of the International Early Years Program (IEYC) by Fieldworks. This integrated curriculum programme uses international best practices, holistic enquiry and play-based approaches to focus on the personal, social and emotional development of our young learners. Language rich classrooms help to further develop their English language skills.
In primary school, our students will continue to support their academic achievement through Project Based Learning. This allows our students to showcase their understanding of the concepts being taught in the classrooms in a fun and interactive way.
At the secondary level, our students continue to achieve high results in their IGCSE and IAL exams, with students scoring the highest marks in the World in Math and Further Pure Math and highest marks in Asia Global Citizenship. Their new timetables provide our secondary students with the opportunity to meet new friends in each of their classrooms, and to take part in the Co-curricular and Extra-curricular activities programmes and Class Excursions.
In the classrooms, our students are continuing to utilize technology to not only access teacher resources, but also to support their learning.
Once again, we welcome you back into the Sayfol family. A reminder that our doors are always open, and parents and guardians are welcome to come and talk with us at any time. We look forward to supporting every one of our learners to reach their potential.
