A very warm welcome to Raffles Christian School – KG campus.
At Raffles Christian School – KG campus, we place great emphasis on nurturing each and every pupil to be global citizens with the knowledge, skills and character to meet the challenges of the 21st Century. The school places great emphasis on Christian character education and discipline to instill in our pupils a strong sense of personal and social responsibility where each pupil is encouraged to serve their immediate community in school and their neighbourhood through community involvement projects. Through the Shining Community Award programme, pupils are rewarded for demonstrating their ability to work with one another in the same class to achieve good conduct, participation in school activities and competitions to promote courtesy as well as kindness among one another.
Sports and Co-Curricular activities form the basis of the school’s character education programme where grit and leadership are properly developed and nurtured. The strength of the child’s character is tested through endurance sports and teamwork is fostered through team sports such as basketball and futsal. All primary and secondary pupils from Primary 1 onwards are identified by their music teachers to join the school’s Choir Talent Development programme where their vocal skills will be developed from young as an after-school weekly programme to harmonize their voices with the school team. They are trained to perform at school events, combined school events, inter-school, regional and international competitions.
Being a premier school with a consistent and outstanding academic standing in mathematics, pupils as young as Primary 1 are introduced to the Singapore Math through the use of the model approach where they will learn to use the concept to solve mathematical problems using abstract thinking and visualization. The programme extends to Primary 6 where they will be taught to solve more complex mathematical problems with heuristics. Mathematically inclined students are specially chosen to take the Math Acceleration Programme at Secondary 1 to learn advanced concepts on algebra.
The school offers an international curriculum from the Cambridge International Examinations (CIE) and the Singapore IPSLE to all our pupils as early as Primary 1 giving them the advantage to excel academically. Besides English as the main language of instruction, Bahasa Indonesia and Chinese are also taught in the school to all our pupils. The Chinese Language Studies is a structured curriculum from pre-primary to JC where students are developed at early age to learn the 4 skills of listening, reading, writing and speaking mandarin. The programme is based on the Singapore Ministry of Education Chinese Language curriculum in which the school will structure it to match the ability of our students. The programme prepares them to take the Singapore IPSLE exams at Primary 6. This programme provides an option for students who wish to gain a working proficiency in the language for daily conversation, reading, writing and listening to native Chinese speakers of the language. At the secondary levels, students are offered the option to further their learning to Second or First Language standard at the Cambridge International Examinations. Thereafter, they will be given the option take the Hanyu Shuiping Kaoshi (HSK) exams at level 5 which allow them to study in the universities in China.
With the breadth of international curriculums offered by the school coupled with a strong emphasis on character education, talent and sports development, I believe your child’s potential will be fully developed at Raffles Christian School, Kelapa Gading. The Holy Bible encourages us in 2 Corinthians 8:7 with this verse that says, “But as you abound in everything – in faith, in speech, in knowledge, in all diligence, and in your love for us – see that you abound in this grace also.” Hence, by the grace of God and His strength, my team of teachers and school leaders are fully committed to excellence in education
