The Crucial Debate
Posted by: Sharmila Rajah
We’ve been discussing this for some time. After all Ayanna will be 5 next month and it’s about time we decided. The debate – Private vs. International school.
The latter has won the debate. After debating both pros and cons and narrowing down the schools that fit our budget and education preference, we’ve chosen an International school. Ayanna begins this September her foray into the next level of education.
We chose International over Private for several reasons –
- As preparation for a future that may involve studying abroad
- An all-encompassing education curriculum that places equal emphasis on academics, the social and cultural development of a child through a diverse range of activities and extra-curriculum such as sports, music, art and drama.
- An education that uses English as its medium
- A class environment (smaller sized classes) that encourages and promotes interaction, critical and analytical thinking
We hope we have made the right decision towards providing Ayanna with an all-rounded education by choosing International schooling over other options.
What have you decided for your own child? Is your child already experiencing International or private education – if yes, what has the experience been like so far?
