Children may find new customs unsettling, and teens often miss friends from their home. The responsibility for turning this potentially stressful situation into a pleasant one often falls on parents.
OWIS can help to make the transition a seamless one for your family when it comes to education. We provide a one-stop shop for families moving to Singapore and enrolling their children with us. Whether you are browsing for a school for next year or are working on a short timeline to get your child enrolled at the last minute, we can quickly help you find the right information and any forms you need.
When we decided to move to Singapore we called our daughter, Leah, and told her that we needed to withdraw her from her previous school. At first, she was a bit sad because she did not want to leave her friends behind, however, when she eventually came to Singapore and she saw her new school and we toured Singapore for a bit, she fell in love with this country and now she doesn’t want to leave.
My son and daughter were both sad to leave their last school behind, they had formed great relationships with their peers and teachers. I thought that they would have difficulty adjusting but they had no problems at all. I was surprised at how easy it was for them to move to a new country and brand new school and feel so comfortable. One World definitely created an enjoyable, safe environment for the kids where they felt that they belonged there.
One of the things I really love about having moved to Singapore is the fact that my children are educated with both teachers and students from all over the world. This would not happen in their home country. Learning Mandarin from birth and also the fact that they can jump in the swimming pool at any time have been added bonuses. We can enjoy the outdoors at any time of year.
