Primary School at OWIS

We know that you have a lot to consider when enrolling your child in primary school, and we want to be there to guide you through this important decision.

At One World International School, we offer a rigorous curriculum that features a high-quality framework. Our goal is for students to do more than just memorise facts and statistics. We want the students at OWIS to be inquisitive learners with powerful critical thinking skills. Our implementation of the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme (IB PYP) is unique, and we believe that it allows students to excel academically and grow personally.

The OWIS Approach to Primary Education Programmes for Children in Singapore

At OWIS, we take a holistic approach to primary schooling. What does this mean? Well, to put it simply, we believe that each child is an individual learner and that we need to use their unique strengths and interests to foster a love of learning in a way that is natural and organic.

Our IB Primary Years Programme is geared toward students between the ages of 6 and 11 and is designed to provide them with a solid foundation for secondary school. Once they have graduated from primary school, they will have the skills needed to excel in our challenging yet nurturing secondary school environment.

You may be wondering how our approach differs from other primary education programmes for children in International Schools. The answer lies in our transformative framework and dynamic teaching methods.

At our school, students are accountable for their own learning experience. They are provided with the materials and instructions they need to develop a solid foundation of basic knowledge. However, our educators go beyond the basics and encourage students to ask questions and engage in discussion. The students at OWIS take pride in the work that they do because they are invested in it, and they know that their teachers are invested in them as well.

A Primary Years Programme

One World International School strives to adopt worldly values and morals, and our administrators and educators make it a point to live out this mission on a daily basis. We actively promote our shared values in our teaching within and outside of the classroom. This includes:

  • Teaching students what it means to be a global citizen. Students are encouraged to develop international mindedness by learning new languages, discovering different cultures and interacting with people from all across the globe.

  • Encouraging students to show respect for themselves and others. Our primary students believe in themselves and are accepting of others. They work together, recognising that there is a shared purpose within our school.

  • Instilling the importance of taking accountability for the actions needed to make changes. Our students are taught to be self-driven, and they know that they are responsible for the success of the future.

We believe that we provide a "future-proof" education. This means that our primary years students will complete their programme with an understanding of what it takes to be a global citizen, and the skills needed to become one.  Students may find that there is potential to get involved in the community and begin practising their citizenship skills through possible volunteer opportunities or partnerships with local organisations. Our students are confident and comfortable and have the ability to study and live in any country throughout the world.
