This year, it looks a little different… with the adding challenge of having to work through this whole process in a digital environment. We invited students, teachers and staff to virtually come together to showcase and celebrate the Grade 5 students' PYP Exhibition.
As parents, when looking for the right school for our children, we consider many factors; academic programs, accreditation, reputa- tion, exam results, extra-curricular activities program; all of which are very important factors that are offered by most international and private schools around the globe, however it is that moment when a family contacts our school or steps through our doors for the very first time that they can truly see the environment of trust, see the smiles on the children’s faces, hear the sounds, watch the interactions and feel the happiness and welcome that sets SSIS apart from everyone else.

After a very long remote learning journey, away from teachers and friends, we are finally able to have our students return to campus starting from this week. We miss the happy faces, the laughter at school foyer, music from the piano and the excitement and vibrant atmosphere.

Each year, we host our Grade 12 Visual Arts Exhibition in a physical space and would invite and welcome guests to come and see students’ amazing artworks. But due to the current pandemic situation, our Grade 12 Visual Arts Exhibition of this year has now become the first VIRTUAL Art Exhibition at SSIS.
With the help of some amazing students, the SSIS staff have put their feelings into music. Please enjoy the music video and we hope to see everyone in person again soon!
SSIS students in the Class of 2022 have continued to receive more offers from universities and colleges across the world.
With the required move to Remote Learning, it becomes hard for students to observe each other's performances, so that is why we use digital tools such as Padlet to help showcase and celebrate student work.
Attending SSIS means to me an opportunity to broaden my horizons. To have the blessing and opportunity to attend an international school means to learn not only your average school topics, but how to share environments with other cultures and groups of people that you might not be familiar with.
The SSIS community is honestly the ideal mixture of acceptance, encouragement and quirk. If I were to have learned anything at SSIS, it would be to simply not be ordinary.
I am lucky to be a student at SSIS. Over the years, the school has taught me things beyond just academics. In SSIS, I am offered a variety of extracurricular activities that range from service, and creativity, to activity.
Being a student at SSIS has made me realise the importance of learning and how to be a lifelong learner. This school has made me want to be the best version of myself.
