OWIS has recently picked up a few awards, which include "Innovation in Global Collaboration Learning" at the World Education Awards 2020, "Gold category - Innovation Class" at the APQO Innovation Class Awards, and "Excellence in International Curriculum Practices" at the Singapore Business Awards.
One World International School has announced plans to launch a brand new digital campus in Singapore amid high demand. This 3rd campus for OWIS in Singapore, which offers the International Baccalaureate curriculum, has enrolment capacity of 1500 students from Preschool to Grade 12, and will commence classes from 2023.
Olympic Gold medallist Joseph Schooling had a meaningful interaction with students of One World International School at its first-ever Leadership Symposium, organised virtually by the school on 17th December 2020.
At One World International School, we are excited to be launching a Chinese-English bilingual programme from January 2021 for our primary school students. This high-quality programme will emphasise the importance of a bilingual, bi-literate and bicultural education and is meant for students from Grade 1 to 5 (aged 6 to 11).
We are proud of our Grade 11 students, who despite cancellation of the IGCSE (International General Certificate of Secondary Education) examinations earlier this year due to Covid-19, successfully completed their two-year IGCSE course in June 2020. We spoke with some of our students - Yash Arya, Rehan Hariyani, Jason Rego, Nanditha Praveen, Kausar Khan and Isabelle Albergaria who received their IGCSE results in August.
OWIS offers academic scholarships every year to deserving students to recognise and reward them for their academic efforts and results. Two of our scholars, Sarah Pegg and Jiou-An Ho, have maintained their excellent academic track-record and have done exceedingly well in the recent IGCSE (International General Certification of Secondary Education) exams, with both of them receiving 9 A*s each. We spoke to Sarah and Jiou-An to get their views on the 2 year IGCSE course at OWIS.
We’ve debuted the latest addition to the OWIS family – the East Coast campus! Located at Mountbatten Road, OWIS East Coast focuses on our Early Childhood Learning programme for children aged three to six. The campus can house up to 160 students, with the student-teacher ratio being 9:1 for every class. Underpinned by the English National Curriculum, the inquiry led, play-based learning programme is delivered in a safe and loving space, in an airy and bright location!
OWIS has won the Excellence in International Curriculum Practices award at the World Education Awards 2020! Held on 22 February 2020 at the Marriott Hotel & Convention Centre Hyderabad, India, the awards are part of the World Education Summit, a prestigious platform dedicated to innovations and creative actions in the education sector, and is attended by both leading decision-makers and education practitioners.
We have been awarded a 4-year EduTrust certificate! Administered by the Committee for Private Education (CPE), a statutory board which regulates, develops and raises quality standards in the private education sector in Singapore.
We have been authorised to offer the International Baccalaureate® Diploma Programme (IB DP) to our students Grade 11 for the 2019 - 2020 academic year at our Nanyang campus.
With kindness being at the heart of OWIS, we celebrated World Kindness Day in a big way – we created Singapore’s largest felt heart, which was recorded in the Singapore Book of Records, a non-profit organisation which compiles records on a national level.
