Education Outcomes

Outcomes of Education at WIS

The desired Outcomes of Education are attributes that WIS educators aspire for every student to have by the completion of their formal education. These outcomes establish a common purpose for educators, drive our policies and programmes, and allow us to determine how well our education system is doing.

Students who are educated in WIS will have a good sense of self-awareness, a sound moral compass, and the necessary skills and knowledge to take on challenges of the future. They are responsible to their family and the community. They appreciate the beauty of the world around them, possess a healthy mind and body, and have a zest for life. In sum, they are

confident people with a strong sense of right and wrong, are adaptable and resilient, know themselves, are discerning in judgment, think independently and critically, and communicate effectively

self-directed learners who take responsibility for their own learning, they question, reflect and persevere in the pursuit of learning

active contributors who can work effectively in teams, exercise initiative, take calculated risks, are innovative and strives for excellence

concerned global citizens who have a strong civic consciousness, are informed, and take an active role in bettering the lives of others around them.

21st Century Competencies

Globalisation, changing demographics and technological advancements are some of the key driving forces of the future. Our students will have to be prepared to face these challenges and seize the opportunities brought about by these forces.

To help our students thrive in a fast-changing world, the Singapore education system has identified competencies that have become increasingly important in the 21st Century. These competencies, represented in the following framework, underpin the holistic education that our school provides to better prepare our students for the future. It is envisaged that parents and the school will work hand-in-hand to help our students develop these 21st Century Competencies.

Framework for 21st Century Competencies and Student Outcomes

Knowledge and skills must be underpinned by values. Values define a persons character. They shape the beliefs, attitudes and actions of a person, and therefore values are at the core of the framework for 21st Century Competencies.

The middle ring signifies the Social and Emotional Competencies C skills necessary for children to recognise and manage their emotions, develop care and concern for others, make responsible decisions, establish positive relationships, as well as handle challenging situations effectively.

The outer ring of the framework represents the emerging 21st Century Competencies necessary for the globalised world we live in. These are:

Civic Literacy, Global Awareness and Cross-Cultural Skills;

Critical and Inventive Thinking;

Communication, Collaboration and Information Skills

Together, these competencies will enable our young to capitalise on the rich opportunities of the 21st Century.
