The IB lays out 10 attributes that help children to become lifelong learners and active, compassionate change-makers. These are: Inquirers; Knowledgeable; Thinkers; Caring; Open-Minded; Risk-Takers; Communicators; Principled; Balanced; and Reflective.
The curriculum and learning approach at OWIS are tailored to nurture these traits in students from the youngest grades. For instance, children learn about giving back through service projects such as Kindness Week and the OWISH Christmas Charity Drive.
Another example of how the school is creating inquirers and thinkers is through the balanced use of different forms of learning – outdoor, inquiry-led, experiential, digital, transdisciplinary and so on. This exposure to different avenues of knowledge acquisition makes every topic interesting and caters to the different learning styles in the classroom.
As a multicultural school that welcomes over 70 nationalities, students are encouraged to give respect to every voice and perspective in the classroom. OWIS students celebrate many cultural festivals, such as Chinese New Year, International Day, Deepavali and more, where they get a glimpse of the traditions of different cultures and expand their view of the world.
Besides the IB Learner attributes as a framework, OWIS has its own strong values system that it follows to bring out the best in the students. Traits like kindness, respect for diversity, having a growth mindset, resilience are teamwork are nurtured through the robust pastoral care and student well-being program.
The well-rounded education and life skills that children gain at OWIS motivates them to approach learning with a positive mindset all through their academic years and beyond.
OWIS has carefully designed their learning approach and school life to provide a well-rounded education for students from Early Childhood to Secondary School.
For kids aged 3-6 (Early Childhood), 6-11 (primary), 12-19 (secondary).
