A fantastic and unforgettable Summer Night Event in June 2016 was the preliminary end for our experience with the Swiss School in Singapore after our daughter Laila had finished her Grade 6 at the Primary School on that very day. Remembering the 6 ½ years we spent with the Swiss School, we feel very grateful and proud for having been part of this unique community here in Singapore. From the very beginning with an informal introduction tour at the school’s facilities we had the firm impression that the school provides a very special approach to children’s education in a target-oriented, committed and joyous atmosphere. The environment on the top of the Bukit Tinggi hill – surrounded by Singapore’s rainforest flora and fauna – did the rest to give us the impression of a very special place for development and education. The collaboration between parents, students and teachers has been exceptional here. We will cherish this extraordinary experience and the defining moments in Singapore for our daughter’s education.
I am personally also grateful that for 4 years I had the opportunity to give back a little bit of commitment and dedication to the school by joining the School Committee as a member. It was a very new and pleasant experience for me to provide impact and guidance to the school’s strategic thrusts and have
insight into the Swiss School’s essential operations.
We are scheduled to be back in Germany for good from December 2016 onwards but as the Swiss School song says: There is always a trace back to the Swiss School in Singapore. Indeed we are looking forward to stay in touch with the Swiss School community in the future to share our memories and experience. Thanks a lot for more than 6 years of invaluable, unforgettable learning-for-life experience!
