July 16, 2021 - We are delighted to announce that One World International School (OWIS), Singapore, has picked up three prestigious awards in June and July 2021.
The first is for Customer Centric Excellence at the Asian Leadership Awards 2021. This event celebrates the achievements of Asia’s business visionaries across all industry sectors and showcases their achievements in the economic development of the region. OWIS was awarded on the basis of our pedagogical approach of incorporating play in learning for Early Childhood students and offering differentiated instructions to students to accommodate diverse styles, levels and speeds of learning.
The second award is for Innovative Practices for Academic Excellence at the 19th World Education Summit (WES 2021). The award body recognises individuals, educational institutions, and ed-tech firms that have transformed teaching, learning, and employability outcomes. OWIS won recognition for providing opportunities for student agency and for the personalised learning for students that allows them to take ownership of their progress. The support provided by teachers and the experiential learning initiatives created in classrooms were also lauded.
Our third accolade was earned at the Making Quality Happen competition organised by IMC RBQNA Trust. This competition is a platform for participating organisations to share their best practices. OWIS won the trophy in the Education category for our underpinning culture of kindness, which drives the vision, mission and values set by the Senior Leadership Team and encourages all stakeholders to use kindness as an instrument for resolving any conflict. Workshops, sharing sessions, stage performances and hands-on community projects are some of the educational programmes that are regularly organised to give students the opportunity to practice kindness in their daily lives.
Commenting on these award wins, Michelle Dickinson, Head of School of OWIS, said, “I am delighted with these prestigious recognitions and the acknowledgement of the commitment and passion of our staff and school community in nurturing kind, compassionate and future ready global citizens. My sincere thanks to the awarding bodies and to our teachers who are key to the success of our school.”
OWIS will soon be launching a new campus at Suntec in the heart of Singapore, where these industry-leading practices in education will be implemented for the holistic development of students.
