The SIS, Semarang Lower and Upper Primary curriculum adopt the Singapore system. It is designed on the total growth of the developing child, affecting hearts as well as minds. It focuses on the social, physical, emotional and cultural needs in addition to academic welfare.
General Characteristics of the SIS Primary
The curriculum offers a holistic approach which develops each individual into a whole being, not just their academic abilities, but also preserving the total development of a child. Its philosophy is a commitment to enquiry as the ideal vehicle for learning. Teachers and students are guided through a variety of theoretical and practical methods, rather than memorising the explanations from the textbooks. Throughout the units of study, each child will develop a deep understanding of the important concepts; acquire and practice a range of essential skills; develop positive attitudes towards learning the environment and other people; and have the opportunity for involvement in responsible action and social service.
Teachers develop and carry out all assessments of student work, which are designed to give a clear picture of each child’s progress. The student’s progress throughout the curriculum is documented in a reflective portfolio that outlines student’s achievement and accomplishments.
