SCIA shares 2020 plan to enhance students’ learning outcomes

06 Dec 2019

Plan includes improving curriculum and campus facilities under new leadership.

On the morning of December 6, the SCIA community came together for a meaningful interaction at our year-end Parent-Management Tea Session. Some 50 parents and guardians turned up at the informal event organised as part of SCIA’s ongoing engagement with the community.

At the session, the proud parents got a glimpse of what their children have achieved in the past 18 months of their academic journey with SCIA. The students across all grades made remarkable progress in their academic studies. As part of their holistic development, the students participated in stage performances, service learning projects, overseas immersion trips and school events such as the “Trash to Treasure” Entrepreneurship Event and SCIA United Nations Day. A few SCIA students have also done Cambodia proud by clinching top awards at international competitions, including the 34th CASTIC (China Adolescents Science & Technology Innovation Contest) in Macau and the 3rd Belt and Road Teenager Maker Camp & Teacher Workshop in Nanning, China.

One happy parent, Ms Sunnaline took the stage to share about her children’s learning journey at SCIA. Ms Sunnaline who has three children studying at Grade 4, Grade 2 and Nursery 2 at SCIA, said, “I am very glad that my children enjoy coming to school daily. They are now a lot more confident in speaking up and very enthusiastic about learning.”

Mr Tan Wee Pin, SCIA’s Managing Director, who joined the school in October, commended the students’ achievements and thanked parents for their strong support in working alongside the school. As the new MD of the school, he shared his vision for 2020. While continuing to place students at the focus of its holistic education model, plans are underway to augment the current curriculum framework and teaching resources to achieve alignment and relevance to today’s world and ensure the best learning outcomes for students.

Parents were also pleased to hear about plans to enhance the school’s facilities. We will partner with One Park Condominium to allow students to use its swimming pool and outdoor playground. The school canteen will go under new management to provide freshly prepared and nutritious food for students.

Mr Seah Chin Siong, the President and CEO of the Singapore Institute of Management (SIM), the parent company of SCIA, was present at the talks to meet with parents and pledge SIM’s commitment to SCIA. He reiterated that SIM is a significant resource centre for SCIA and will continue to work closely with the school in providing multiple education pathways for SCIA’s graduates. Mr Seah shared plans for a new and stronger leadership to take SCIA and our students to a new height of excellence.

We sincerely thank the SCIA parents for your support and feedback. We are committed to continually improving our curriculum, teaching quality and school operations, so that your children receive the best education possible.
