Message from MS. Shinta
I would like to welcome everyone to SISPIK Preschool and Primary Department.
In addition to my role as the Deputy Head Teacher of Preschool Department, it is an honour to also work with you all in the wonderful Primary Department. Since graduating from the University, I have been working with students as young as Preschool to Secondary for 20 years now. Teaching at a secondary school in other country like Japan has given me an international environment experience and being the principal in national plus and international schools has shaped my leadership skills.
Having spent the last three years at SIS PIK, I am proud of being part of the SISPIK community. It is clear to me that SISPIK has the potential to be a truly outstanding school. I consider parents and community members to be pivotal partners in the education process. My vision for the school is to ensure that all students achieve both academically and socially beyond personal expectations and prior attainment, that they experience an enjoyable education and are able to sustain the life of their choice whilst making a positive contribution to their communities. Children can learn almost anything given the right support and right environment (Malaguzzi, 1994). I am committed to always exploring new ways to meet the needs of all students and to more effectively communicate with parents and community members.
In closing, please know that my door is always open to you. I heartily welcome your conversation and positive input throughout this year.
