Curriculum

We currently offer the British-based International Primary Curriculum (IPC) and the New Zealand Mathematics and English curriculum. Inquiry-based learning is at the heart our all teaching and learning programmes.

At Silver Fern International School we believe:

  • The student is the foundation of the learning process so education must encompass the development of the whole individual with the school’s emphasis on academic, physical, social growth along with an international awareness.
  • As all children do not learn in the same way, allowances are made for differences in learning styles through a differentiated programme of instruction.
  • Education must foster independent thinking, critical analysis and an appreciation and understanding of difference.
  • A safe and caring environment is essential to academic success and a school and is a place where students learn to respect others, accept responsibility, exhibit sound morale, values and behaviour.
  • Information and Communication Technology (ICT) are an essential part of the school curriculum and used daily by students and teachers.

Thai language culture

The Thai language and culture curriculum at Silver Fern supports and relates to students and corresponds to the school’s mission aimed at creating positive attitudes towards the Thai language and culture and strengthens the awareness of the value of the language.

For Thai national students six 50 minute classes per week are scheduled to enable the student to:

  • Develop skills of listening, speaking, reading, and writing Thai language and grammar rules.
  • Study Thai Culture and arts such as Thai classical dance and music, wat (temple) and museum, Thai dress code, Thai wisdom. Students will enjoy singing and dancing Thai songs,  Thai crafts, and playing Thai music instruments during school activities.
  • Study Social Studies to understand about religions, Thailand geography, history, democracy in Thailand, natural conservation, and the economy.
  • Participate in Loy Krathong, Songkran and Wai Khru ceremony. They also learn other Thai cultural aspects.

The curriculum is divided into beginner, intermediate and advanced levels to suit students’ language ability.
