Welcome to Sunway International School Kuala Lumpur's Primary School which covers Grades 1 - 5.
At Sunway International School, we understand that Primary School is an exciting time full of learning, growth and development. Our Primary School programme focuses on each student's unique qualities and learning needs. Together with parents and the school community, our primary school programme is designed to help each child reach their full potential.
Using the Canadian (Ontario) Curriculum as our framework, literacy, numeracy, global competencies, 21st-century skills and character education are taught through a student-centred framework. SIS balances academic rigour with a strong emphasis on literacy, numeracy, and learning skills which serve as a foundation for all other academic achievements and lifelong success.
At the primary level, the Ontario curriculum emphasises literacy, numeracy, global competencies, and 21st-century skills through a student-centred framework. Varied and continuous assessment approaches are used to inform teaching practices to improve student learning. Literacy and numeracy skills are a crucial part of student success and are the foundation of the primary school curriculum. Resources are carefully selected in response to the student dynamics and reflect the diversity in the classroom. Social Studies, Science, the Arts, and Character Education are integrated and provide relevant and authentic learning opportunities for students. Multimodal learning activities and resources used to implement the curriculum are inclusive, reflecting the range of experiences of students with varying backgrounds, abilities, interests, and learning styles. It is through these approaches that we aim to improve student engagement and instil lifelong learning.
We recognise that the needs of learners are diverse and help students develop the knowledge, skills, and perspectives they need to become informed, productive, caring, responsible, and active citizens in their own communities and in the world. Character education along with local, global, and digital citizenship and UN sustainable goals are embedded in the curriculum. In developing the whole student, we aim to create a school culture that is equitable and inclusive of all people and cultures. The primary school programme encourages participation in extracurricular activities (ECAs) and Daily Physical Activity to support students’ health and wellness and enhance their learning opportunities. Field trips, school events, and parental and community involvement enrich the learning experiences and enable students to make real-life connections and feel a sense of belonging.
I am thrilled to have the privilege to bring you Sunway International School's inaugural intake for our Grades 1 to 5. We are working on bringing the best of Canadian education to your children to help them truly understand how they can have meaningful experiences and grow up to be the best they can possibly be. I look forward to meeting everyone soon!
