WELCOME BACK FOR SCHOOL CALENDAR 2023 - 2024
AND WARM GREETINGS
To all of our new students and families of the Independent School Batam
We would like to express our thanks to all parents for their continued support over the past few tumultuous years and a special thank you to all new parents who are sending their children to the Independent School Batam (ISB) for the first time. We have passed our academic year 2022-2023 smoothly which marked a transition towards a state of normality after the Covid-19 Pandemic. The final year students’ performances represented a great step towards this, celebrating quite a special occasion after the absence of this gathering over the past 3 years.
Our teachers and staff have been working hard during the school holidays for the start of SY 2023-2024. To those parents who have children just joining our Pre-School, we look forward to working together in this major step in your young child’s life. Here at ISB we place a great emphasis on creating a warm and caring environment to allow your child’s first educational experience to be positive and fulfilling. Children moving on to join Reception One (R1) and Reception (R2) Classes will find that they will have more studies than during Pre-School as they prepare for Primary level and of course our Primary students are expected to a spend more time studying in school and will be assigned more challenging homework per their year group.
The ISB has had Key Stage 3 (Years 7, 8 and 9 as Junior High School) for the last fourteen years and in the twelfth year we added to this our Senior High School, Key Stage 4 (Year 10). ISB has specially designed a 9-month preparatory course to prepare students for the Cambridge IGCSE examination which aims to ensure that students will eventually gain entry to their desired top universities worldwide should they wish to pursue this path of education. With the IGCSE qualification, students can continue their education to A-Level programs, IB (International Baccalaureate) programs, University Foundation Programs, Diploma Programs or Associate Degree Programs (in the USA). We are proud to say that our alumni have consistently achieved excellent results for English, Mathematics, Chemistry, Biology and Physics in these examinations.
Alumni of The Independent School Batam have successfully passed the Singapore-Cambridge General Certificate of Education (GCE-O Level) Examination since 2014 alongside the IGCSE Examination. With our 24 years of extensive experience in various international curriculum, our students have achieved excellent results and attained entry into various prestigious universities and colleges worldwide, including • University of Bath, United Kingdom • University of New South Wales, Australia • Monash University, Malaysia • Singapore Polytechnic and Nanyang Technological University (NTU) Singapore. We broaden our curriculum to enrich our students’ knowledge with a large variety of activities and continue to collaborate with overseas institutions in Singapore and in Australia for both student examinations and teacher’s development programs.
We are pleased to inform you that students will return to study on campus from Monday the 5th of September 2023 and we look forward to a return to normal class programmes as we head into School Year 2023-2024. ISB is a place where people care for each other and assist new students to feel welcome, enjoy the school and respect cultural differences of many nationalities. We wish everyone a rewarding year and once again thank you for your ongoing support.
Best wishes for the schooling year ahead,
Drh. Ramdani Chancellor, Ph.D.
