On Saturday, November 19, the SSIS Model United Nations (MUN) group hosted students from Dulwich College for a mini-conference.
As parents, when looking for the right school for our children, we consider many factors; academic programs, accreditation, reputation, 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.
Through these pages you will see that SSIS has excellent academic programs and exam results, accreditation, state-of-the-art facilities, and an outstanding overall program. We stand tall with an experienced group of educators working, leading, listening and providing a rigorous, safe and caring environment. We understand and appreciate the trust that you have put in us when you choose to be a member of our community. We are true to our vision where our students are “self-motivated, lifelong learners, who value other cultures and are responsible, meaningful participants in the international community.” We are true to our culture of principles, personal rigour and open-mindedness. We are, above all, an inclusive school where we believe that everyone can learn, all children are included, appropriately challenged and successful.
It is my pleasure to welcome you to SSIS.

In preparation for our fire Drill a couple of weeks ago, the ELC children have been inquiring into fire trucks, fire fighters and fire safety. Through roleplay, stories, songs, puzzles and action vehicles, the children have immersed themselves in finding out more.
On Tuesday 15th November, SSIS successfully hosted a university fair on campus, first time in three years since the pandemic started.
The AMC (American Mathematics Competition) events are a series of competitions that are held annually across the world. It is a great opportunity to challenge those who are mathematically minded in our student community and for them to experience Mathematics outside the curriculum in a different context.
The annual “Active for Action” event brings our school community together to have a fun run/walk and raise funds for various student service groups in both Elementary and Secondary divisions.
