  • “Our daughter is a new student in NZSJ and also her first experience in international school (with full English). I remember her first presentation with full English. She didn’t want to do it, but finally she did and it was one of her best moments. She felt afraid, but after her presentation she felt so good for the effort she applied. Now she feels so much better than her first day of presentations because she now knows that she can do whatever she wants to do. Thank you to the mindfulness session that her teacher conducts every morning (I hear it every morning before I go to the office). The learning that she has acquired makes her feel good because she knows that she has to trust in herself.”
    NZSJ Grade 7 parent

He can explore his talent there and the school supports him a lot by giving him encouragement when he is sad or down and complement him when he achieves something good.”

    NZSJ Grade 3 parent
  • “This school provides a community not just a school, it is the perfect creative and nurturing, inspiring environment for my children to learn”
    NZSJ Primary and Secondary parent
  • “My child is happy and excited to attend the online class.”
    NZSJ Grade 3 parent
  • “I think NZSJ has a very good online learning platform, especially for Early Years. I can say that the online programme has definitely given lots of benefit to our child. He can still have routine activities at home, do fun things and learn at the same time. NZSJ has a reasonable price compared to other schools, especially during this uncertain time of covid situation. I highly recommend NZSJ for other early years parents.”
    NZSJ Kindergarten parent
  • “NZSJ being one of the top international schools in Jakarta have put together an amazing online programme. This has benefitted my son immensely.”
    NZSJ Grade 7 parent
  • “The online programme has definitely benefited my son. He has routine activities everyday through the online programme. Even though we do everything at home, it feels that he is following a schedule like he is in the classroom, of course with parent supervision while the teacher helps us with all the materials needed for his learning.”
    NZSJ Kindergarten parent
  • “The online programme has been an awesome experience and I find the teachers thoroughly dedicated towards the students. It has benefited my son immensely. He has learnt to be more independent.”
    NZSJ Grade 7 parent
  • “The online programme helps my son to be an independent and responsible person. He knows about deadlines. He arranges his time to do many things. He has time to read eBooks, explore and research for a topic independently.”
    NZSJ Grade 3 parent
  • “I would like to say a big heartfelt THANK YOU for the fantastic support of the school over this past year, and in particular throughout this very different term 4 with exciting online learning and wonderful, daily video chats!”
    NZSJ Kindergarten parent
  • “I have enjoyed learning about the G Suite programs the most (Spreadsheets, Slides, Docs, etc).”
    NZSJ Grade 7 student
  • “My favourite part about online school is art class. I think it’s really fun and I have learned some new techniques. I learned how to shade, how to colour, and I also learned how to shape a clay. Art class is always the end of the day which is relaxing and is just a good way to finish the day off.”
    NZSJ Grade 7 student
  • “I have learned how to make friends even if it’s online. I have also learned how to use my laptop better with the help of my teacher. Now I know how to make slides, documents, sheets, bookmark folders, and a jamboard. For the first week all my teacher did was teach us how to use all these tools, which taught me a lot and is really helpful.”
    NZSJ Grade 7 student
  • “This pandemic has been challenging and really chaotic but the bright side to all of this is that we can find new hobbies from the school, new ways to learn and to find a new “US” from all this chaos. It’s sad that we can’t talk to friends physically and we are stuck at our houses but as my parents always told me “at least look on the bright side”. Quarantine has been a challenge mentality but at the same time I get to achieve things I wouldn’t have and I found a new hobby that I enjoy doing thanks to my school and my teacher.”
    NZSJ Grade 8 student
  • “As a student in NZSJ, the best thing about online classes is that students are taught by their teachers how to manage their time by making daily plans, which encourage students to be more independent. Also, we learn to not always depend on our teachers for everything. The teachers provide enough information on the subjects and give the students enough time to complete their assignments.”
    NZSJ Grade 9 student
  • “The problem of doing online school is that we are staring at our screen all day from the classes to doing the assignments given to us. Therefore, the school encourages us to exercise, get good nutrition and stay fit during these times. One of the ways the school is encouraging us to exercise is by doing a POUND dance. We also learn about zen and meditation so not only are we staying fit physically, we are also staying fit mentally.”
    NZSJ Grade 8 student
  • “One of the ways we show our work to the teacher is by using a program called Google Classroom where we take pictures or share documents for each assignment and get graded for it just like an actual normal school. Our school knows that students are in a new environment and have never done school from home, so our school includes fun activities, projects and friendly discussions to cope with this new way of learning”
    NZSJ Grade 8 student
  • “Even though it's an online school my teacher still gave us a group project. I think the projects really help me with getting closer to my classmates. I was a new student here and my first day was already online, so I couldn’t see my classmates face to face. The projects really helped me to be close with them and were now good friends.”
    NZSJ Grade 7 student
  • “During online learning, I have learnt about how the brain works and how it relates to growth mindset (having a flexible mind and ‘thinking out of the box’), along with how to keep track of my time (with the weekly planner).”
    NZSJ Grade 7 student
  • “These online classes are helping students in this generation to learn new technical skills that could really help them in their future. In my opinion, the main thing is that kids/students build self-discipline, determination and perseverance in working alone and realizing that I CAN DO IT BY MYSELF! And building self-confidence.”
