In a world that is becoming ultra-connected, it is important to get a good education so that you can be knowledgeable about the world around you. Today, schools play a crucial role in equipping students with the right tools to succeed in the future – and in the same vein, parents are also on the lookout for a school that will provide them with the best learning opportunities.
Take a peek into any school event at Chatsworth International School and you will see a sea of green, yellow and red. Adorned by students – and sometimes teachers and other staff, this myriad of colours signify the school house system. Established across primary, lower secondary and upper secondary levels, this arrangement is a unique and invaluable aspect of student life at Chatsworth.
Education is not always limited to studying from textbooks. Outside of school, the world is a classroom which holds an expanse of valuable lessons and life experiences. For students, a wholesome curriculum can help them become responsible and respectful individuals – and one of the best ways is through service learning.
In essence, service learning is deeply rooted in community building. For example, activities are centred around encouraging civic-centric engagement such as community outreach theatre and recycling programmes.
Not long ago, art education was considered as a leisure activity – something to be enjoyed as a hobby or to while away time. Today, art has become an important part of our everyday lives. We see it in the clothes we wear, the dishes we tuck into, and the technology we use.
Tucked away amid lush nature and serenity, Chatsworth International School is a conducive place for students to learn, explore and grow. Close to the city centre, yet far away from the drab of the concrete jungle, it provides a nurturing environment for all.
When we think of resilience, we think of situations where people have shown extraordinary bravery or can take on hardships. The fact of the matter is that resilience is commonplace – being able to accept failures or having the grit to try again. For children, the ability to bounce back from anything probably also means that they will grow up to be confident and successful adults.
The last two years have certainly proven that the landscape of work can very rapidly shift in ways that none of us, save a sci-fi author here and there, would have anticipated. Fortunately, conversations regarding the relevance of current student learning to their future needs have been a hot topic for the past couple decades already.
Chatsworth International School places importance on empowering our students to be inquisitive and responsible. We have adopted techniques into our curriculum and identity to give students the tools to become proficient problem-solvers starting from preschool education and later, in all aspects of their lives.
