Welcome to SIS-PIK
SIS-PIK is an extraordinary school like no other, with a passion for Indonesian cultural pride and identity, with a unique vision of combining the best educational traditions; Singaporean, Cambridge, BTEC and the International Baccalaureate (IB).
At the beginning of each academic year, we take the time to ponder; as a school – what are our strengths, and how can we use them to improve. SIS-PIK is a special place that sits at the intersection of different learning traditions. Cambridge, BTEC and the IB seek to develop inquiry, curiosity, open mindedness and creativity. Whereas, the Singaporean curriculum encourages a set of personal moral virtues such as resolve, diligence, perseverance and humility. SIS-PIK is unique in combining these learning traditions to create something truly special.
As we strive to be a better school, we wonder what “success” really looks like for our kids. It’s been heartwarming for us to listen to educators at our school, across divisions and departments, who are wanting to find ways to celebrate students in so many ways beyond just academic achievement. Academic success is only one important part of what makes up a successful student, a great school demands more than that.
Students must be great learners, but also taking steps to pursue their passions, developing leadership, sportsmanship and an understanding of fair play. They need to be a good friend, empathetic, honest and caring to others. All of us make mistakes, and excellent students use mistakes as a launching pad to learn. They understand that effort, perseverance and grit holds the key to success. It is ultimately our responsibility as adults to celebrate these successes with each individual student as often as we can. We believe that powerful learning happens when children feel safe, happy and loved.
Each morning as we watch our parents huddle with their children for a last few seconds before sending them off through the flat barriers teachers, we are very much struck by the uniqueness that is SIS-PIK. We care as much about developing character, diligence and humility as we do academic excellence. We are a community that cares about the children in our charge, challenging them to be better each day. Indeed we aspire to empower our students to Greater Heights. Thank you to our parents for being partners with us in this journey. Together, we can make it happen.
