INTERNATIONAL PRIMARY

SBIS Primary is divided into two key stages, notably Key Stage 1 (Years 1 and 2) and Key Stage 2 (Years 3 to 6).

In our Primary School, students experience learning through play and project based activities which cover a wide range of subject areas, as well as discrete lessons in English Language, Physical Education, Mandarin, Bahasa Malaysia, Mathematics and Science. At the end of Year 6, all students sit for the CIE Checkpoint examinations in English, Mathematics and Science. This is an internationally recognised examination which provides an opportunity to celebrate individual achievement and review areas for further development.

GROWTH MINDSET

Inspiring Children Towards A Growth Mindset

“Success is not final, failure is not fatal, it is the courage to continue that counts.”
– Winston Churchill

The underlying process that supports our children in picking themselves up once again after each setback is of pivotal importance in the process of learning and the much-needed tenacity to brave their journey in lives. As such, inspiring children to embrace a ‘growth mindset’ as opposed to a ‘fixed mindset’ will continue to be the core principle in the process of teaching and learning for both students and faculty members of SBIS.

Students will be facilitated on their progress to continue trying new strategies and seek input from others when they face challenges – be it in the pursuit of intellectual, physical or emotional development. The impetus for ongoing improvement under LESB is fundamentally anchored by a group of passionate, qualified, committed and experienced teachers who embrace the same mindset that ‘When we stop learning, we stop teaching’.
