Hong Kongers certainly appreciate the importance of a globally-minded education. If you’re considering the move to Singapore, one of your first steps will be to find a school that prioritises this. Dulwich College (Singapore) draws strength from its founding school, to deliver a “Students First, Personalised Pathways” approach to educating your little global citizen.
Dulwich College (Singapore) believes in nurturing global citizens, even for its youngest students. The student-centred, holistic education starts in the Early Years Programme for students from 2 to 7 years (affectionately known as DUCKS), equipping them with the strong moral compass needed to navigate the fast-paced modern world. We take a closer look at exactly how the school is equipping kids to take on the world.
1. Dual-language classrooms promoting intercultural awareness, diversity and inclusion
Possibly the best way for kids to develop a deep appreciation for other cultures is to be fully immersed in an inclusive, bilingual environment. At Dulwich College, classes are taught by at least one native English-speaking and one native Mandarin-speaking teacher to help even the littlest learners gain confidence in their language skills as well as a thorough cultural understanding. You can expect your kids to come home buzzing after celebrating key national festivals, having fun at dress-up days and participating in theatrical performances.
2. Weekly Forest School for ethical environmental education
There’s something special about getting back to nature. Dulwich College (Singapore) is the first international school in Singapore to introduce a fully accredited (by the UK’s Forest School Learning Initiative) Forest School as part of its early years programme. Students develop life skills like curiosity, teamwork and resilience as well as respecting the environment as they take measured risks, design their own challenges and problem-solve in collaboration with their peers.
3. Embracing fairness and well-being through community service and leadership
Dulwich College (Singapore) helps your child pursue their individual passions and talents while also celebrating team spirit and an awareness of others. They are offered a variety of leadership pathways through traditional avenues like becoming members of the Student Council or House Captains, but also as Ecowarriors and Techsperts which recognise success across a range of curriculum areas. Similarly, through enrichment days, DUCKS students learn about sustainability, the UN Good Life Goals, community service and more, which all reinforce their understanding of what it means to be a global citizen.
