A purpose-designed school
Ambassador Teo spent an hour touring the purpose-designed school, with conducive learning spaces, large areas for physical activities and Cambridge-certified science labs. Classes were in-session as teachers demonstrated the unique pedagogy for mathematics and Singapore Chinese.
The Ambassador was also invited to sign an impressionist art piece of the Invictus building to be displayed at the school. In her closing remarks, Ambassador Teo spoke about the importance of mainstreaming investments in education in response to shifting global challenges.
She added: “The Singapore brand of education has achieved consistently high international rankings. The Invictus International School is strongly anchored in the Singapore national curriculum and its competitive fee structure gives parents more options to choose from.”
A strong Singapore-Cambridge curriculum
As a token of appreciation, Ambassador Teo was gifted a Chinese calligraphy, 刚强坚毅 meaning “Unconquerable”, the school’s motto. The following day, on 28 May, Invictus organized its inaugural Open House event, well attended by over 100 people, and supported by eight partner businesses and vendors.
Workshop topics included Singapore’s method of Math and Chinese, the mechanics and relevance of IGCSE and International A-Levels and a study abroad presentation. Parents and children participated in an immersive classroom experience for pre-school, primary and secondary levels.
Mr. Charles Tong, Senior Vice-President and Superintendent said “The school has rich and ready physical resources, a strong Singapore-Cambridge curriculum, as well as a pool of experienced teachers and a team of strong educational leaders for steady growth and development.”
