|Featured Sponsor of the Month – SSIS |
This year is an important milestone in the history of SSIS where we mark 25 years of excellence since its founding in 1996. SSIS was established as a K-12 school, providing an education centrepiece for the Shanghai expatriate community. It offers a one-of-its-kind blended curriculum pathway of Singapore’s Primary Curriculum, IGCSE and IB programmes. Over the past 25 years the school has grown, developed and adapted but it continues to serve the Singaporean and wider Shanghai expatriate community with quality education offerings that aim to meet the challenges of the future.
SSIS provides a holistic education and instills core values to each student, one of which is to involve the whole SSIS community in various outreach projects. We hope that through these projects, students will learn that volunteering and contributing to their community enhances their sense of responsibility and helps them become compassionate global citizens. Our Parent Support Group also plans and organises community projects within the campus to support our drive for building stronger community ties.
SSIS has been supporting Heart to Heart Shanghai since 2015. Every year, SSIS hosts an International Family Bazaar which involves all parents, students and faculty in a day of fun and friendship. The event allows the school community to celebrate as a community and chip in to help with charitable causes. The Senior School Student Council also organizes small charity drives to contribute to the same charity goal.
“We hope to share the SSIS values with the people we care about and enjoy the time we spend together. We want our students to become compassionate global citizens who are willing to contribute and put in effort for the betterment of others and the wider community. This is also an important aspect of education.”

“It is really heartening to see children who has successfully undergone a heart surgery and with smiles on their faces. The “thank you” messages from the children and their parents never fail to remind us that each of us can make a difference to someone’s life, through big and small ways.”
- Ms Sunny Cho, President of SSIS Parent Support Group
“Being in the Student Council, we have organized events throughout the years in which profits were donated to Heart to Heart, and contributing to a child’s heart surgery is one of the most fulfilling things I have helped to do. Helping the community and providing the student body with fun events at the same time is a great balance.”
