Our Primary program extends from Grade 1 to Grade 6 and is built on the following principles:
Creative: Creating dynamic classrooms with engaging and fun activities that “hook” students and encourage natural curiosity, ownership of their learning directions and active learning for life.
Encouraging: Catering for the whole person, we teach to your child’s needs, not merely curriculum expectations. Integrating cross-curricular academic, social and physical skills to develop the whole child and encourage special strengths and abilities.
Developing: Giving individual attention to children by building and developing respectful learning relationships with them. This provides a safe and stable base for them to explore new (and challenging) ideas and skills.
NZSJ applies the New Zealand Curriculum (NZC), which is aligned with the above principles and offers an inquiry-based holistic approach to education, promoted through the learning areas of English, the Arts, Health and Physical Education, Learning Languages, Mathematics and Statistics, Science, Social Studies and Technology. We consider that the holistic nature of this curriculum offers our children a solid foundation that will set them up for success as they grow, explore and contribute in this world.
As well as providing unique teaching and learning opportunities within our classrooms, at NZSJ we also value education outside the classroom. This means that students often go on excursions or have ‘expert’ visitors come into the school to assist in providing rich authentic learning opportunities. We make links within our community among other things by participating in Clean Up Jakarta Day and the Jakarta Association of Small International School’s sporting events as well as hosting a local community bazaar / picnic.
We welcome virtual or in-person visits from prospective families. Contact us to make arrangements through our Admissions Office. We will be glad to answer any questions you have and to book a chat for you with our Head of School.
