Australian International School Singapore (AISS)
What are the extracurricular activities at the Australian International School?
The Australian International School originally opened its doors on Mount Sophia, behind Plaza Singapura and the Cathay Building restoration, on February 3, 1993. The school began with 32 children and seven instructors under the direction of Miss Coral Dickson. There were around 200 pupils by the end of 1993. With little over 500 children, the Australian International School Singapore (AISS) saw quick expansion, and by the end of July 1994, the pupils had moved to Emerald Hill, right behind Orchard Road. Even though the Australian International School was large and could house more students, it lacked a full-sized gym, pool, theatre, and other essential amenities. Since 2007, Cognita has owned AIS privately. The Cognita school network, founded in 2004, now includes 69 campuses in the UK, Spain, South America, Thailand, Singapore, and Vietnam, serving students aged 3 to 18.
Cognita has owned Australian International School Singapore since 2007. Cognita is a worldwide network of independent schools Established in 2004.
The concepts of the Reggio Emilia teaching philosophy, which places the child at the center of the learning experience and regards the environment as the “third teacher,” are included in the Australian International School Singapore (AISS) Early Years curriculum. Children get given to investigate their surroundings and make discoveries. Instead of forcing kids to study in a set style, the curriculum lets them learn according to their natural skills. The Australian school Curriculum starts in Nursery and continues until Year 8. In addition, the internationally famous International Baccalaureate Primary Years Program (IB PYP) is presented in the Elementary School from Early Years to Year 5, with selected complementing teaching approaches and a curriculum structure tailored to students’ needs. All AIS students take the Cambridge IGCSE in Years 9 and 10, which is the world’s most popular international qualification for this age range. The Cambridge IGCSE is well-known for its intellectual rigor and ability to prepare pupils for senior secondary school. In Years 11 and 12, students can choose between two rigorous graduation programs: the NSW Higher School Certificate or the International Baccalaureate Diploma Program (IBDP).
Co Curricular activities :
Co Curricular activities (CCAs) are an integral aspect of the Australian International School’s international school program. Our students get encouraged to take advantage of numerous possibilities available to them both within and outside the classroom. Individual intellectual, artistic, and personal skills get fostered and cultivated via a curriculum of sports, social, and cultural activities. The CCA program begins in Preparatory (Prep) as a lunchtime-only program and continues as lunchtime and after-school program from Year 3 to Year 12. Every student from Year 1 to Year 12 is encouraged at least one CCA every semester. The Australian International School provides students with chances to participate in a variety of activities, including but not limited to:
- Science and Coding
- Arts and Crafts
- Chess and Chinese cultural games
- Music (through the choir, music ensembles, and bands)
- Duke of Edinburgh International Award
