I have enjoyed going to the Swiss School every day since I started eight years ago. The students and teachers are very friendly and helpful. The teachers make learning really fun and when they introduce a new topic they always try to explain it in a practical way or through an experiment.What I also like is the green surroundings of the school as well as sitting on the rocks overlooking the playground and the lower level of the school.
My favorite subject is sports because it allows me to be active and explore different themes and activities. I particularly enjoyed the 5th grade school camp to Bintan. We went rock climbing, kayaking, walked on high ropes and did a boat and boom-net trip. The camp was all about adventure, activities, team building and fun.
Finally, at SSiS, we have such a great community presence. It feels like a home because you know almost everyone and this really sets it apart from other schools. After finishing this school year, I will most probably continue my education at UWCSEA, SSiS’ partner school which I am looking forward to. I occasionally play basketball in UWCSEA and there is a good atmosphere on the campus.
