I think my kids most love the people of Chatsworth. Their teachers are kind and competent and always willing to help. They love going to school to meet with friends and classmates.

Year 10 student

Rotem Veinstein

Art is my favourite subject. I've always loved how I can bring my personal life and experiences into artworks. Art is a way I like to deal with stress and I am always able to be myself on an artwork.

Year 4 student

Antoine Trombetta

I decided to make some origamis and sell them in profit of ItsRaining Raincoats charity because I knew the migrant workers don't have presents for Christmas.

My favourite memories were built with the friends I made at the community at Chatsworth. I am still close to all my friends at Chatsworth till this day.

Chatsworth is a great place if you want to follow the IB program, have a nurturing and caring environment, one where the teachers genuinely care and where your kids will want to go to school every morning!

Class of 2020

Camellia Pham

I speak for my friends when I say that many of our teachers were role models who taught us lessons about life and were always open to offer a hand and ear whenever we faced a problem (be it academic or personal).

Year 6 student

Mia Smit

I like the way they (the teachers) teach and the way they help you when you make mistakes. Mistakes help us know we need a little extra help.

Year 12 Student

Christoph Cuan

Learning to play the violin is one of my accomplishments during the MYP. I studied the instrument as part of my Personal Project. Right now, I’m preparing to take the ABRSM practical exam.

Maintenance Administrator

Every morning rain or shine, I help to marshall the traffic coming into the campus and being able to meet and greet families is something I find enjoyable too.

I volunteer to help in the school library regularly (when parents are allowed on campus!), which has been a great insight into how the school works (as the IB system is very different to the UK education system).

Year 13 student

Aditya Poply

Tutoring as a community service was very attractive because helping my juniors understand the fundamental concept of mathematics and helping them achieve better grades was very satisfying.

Year 6 student

Kokomi Oyama

I would like to meet Malala Yousafzai because I learned about child rights and I was interested in it. Also I was surprised by how she fought to get her rights even though she was only a child like me.

MYP Art & Design Teacher

Cory Desmond

I chose Chatsworth based on my interactions with the school administration and human resources on several occasions over a period of time, as well as for the small but international community it offers.

Having moved to Bukit Timah, I definitely miss the ease and convenience Orchard has. But I am amazed at how I am loving the lively atmosphere surrounded by the greenery and the regular sightings of the wildlife here.

Robert Lyons

We wanted a school where both James and George felt a part of. Where life skills are as important as the sciences and academia. We love the approach to giving the children the skills they need to understand the world around them.

I joined the Chatsnews CCA for a year and really enjoyed it. The experiences have helped me when I needed to show what I have done in my school when I took exams in Japan.

Aruna Silva, Year 12 student

Aruna Silva

I love the ocean and going to the beach, especially being from Hawaii where there are beautiful beaches, therefore I was inspired to paint the mural about plastic pollution.

Library Assistant

I fell in love with the school environment as it is a great place to build relationships. I really enjoy interacting with the children. Seeing their happy faces every day brings me joy.

Finding a balance between multiple classes and sustaining a social life is another aspect that I grasped thanks to IB and I now utilise in order to manage nine courses which vary every semester.

I love seeing the children and their families come together during special events. It’s very uplifting to watch everyone happily enjoying themselves!

Kiran Pengelly

I was in the U14 Boys Football team last year and I think that I came out as a better team player because I got to play with new people and have learned to adapt the way I collaborate.

Year 12

Lilowen Trottet

I love exploring a wide range of different stories and perspectives in English literature, from 'The Metamorphosis' by Franz Kafka to 'The Bell Jar' by Sylvia Plath.

EAL Teacher

Samuel Choi

I love the community aspect of the school. It's true of the students, teachers, and parents. I love hearing about what the students do for fun and what they do during their weekends and breaks.

Class of 2019

Melody Song

I really stepped out of my comfort zone to try what I would never have thought of doing - like performing a dance routine in school for the first time, participating in peer counselling, etc. It’s really these memories that stay with you after graduating.

Class of 2018

Hana Dyke

I now understand how amazing opportunities in CAS have been - it has enabled me to give back to the community as well as keep myself fit and healthy.

Class of 2017

I really enjoyed the openness and helpfulness of the teachers who were willing to support me with coursework and university applications.

I am thankful that we are away from the city and surrounded by nature, I just love listening to the birds and wildlife when I arrive in the morning.

Chatsworth has been my home for me and my family for the last 13 years. It made me feel settled when I was new to Singapore and has been my support ever since.
