Happy New Year. I am welcoming 2021 on a high note with reflections on our achievements while looking forward to the new year with excitement.

In 2020, we continue to leverage the excellent foundational work we have completed in the last 3 to 4 years. We identified our significant achievements to be the:

  • Success with PYP consultation visit

  • Increased teacher capacity

  • Robust IB curriculum

  • Increased capacity for teachers to collaborate in teams

  • ICT infrastructure and development

  • Quality inclusion program

With these achievements in mind and reflecting on the journey we have traveled, I am now able to confidently profess that we are on our way to becoming an international school of high educational standards.

Million thanks to our staff. I am exceptionally proud of how the staff have contributed to and worked towards making SDIS a school that is inclusive, mission-driven, and student-centered.

I would also like to acknowledge and sincerely thank every parent who has made a positive contribution to supporting our endeavors to make a great school.

Looking ahead, we are excited to see what 2021 will bring to us.

  • PYP verification visit in January
  • Expansion to MYP
  • New staff join us: Mr. Medd
  • Mrs. Leiknes will return from her maternity leave in March 2021
  • Digital citizenship and many more innovative educational programs

Wish you a healthy, happy, and prosperous new year!
