Head of Secondary

Welcome to the Secondary campus of the New Zealand Independent School in Jakarta, Indonesia. On behalf of everyone at NZIS, I would like to extend a warm welcome to you – Selamat datang di keluarga besar NZIS.

It is an exciting period to be at NZIS and our goal is to create high relating groups of people. We aim at placing our students at the centre of every decision we make. We seek to inspire, to motivate and to enthuse our charges. We have a vision and a team of teachers who are inspired to help others find meaning and purpose.

We challenge ourselves to always question why we do things and are always looking to alter, make slight adjustments and develop our way of doing things. An example is our move to using Maori concepts to give our school House system, a sense of unity and pride. This transformation has been tremendous and we have developed Maori and English school songs, which have become synonymous with showing respect and recognition within our school. We have also looked to build on this by adopting vertical form classes and this is to encourage more leadership opportunities. There are now three teachers, who work together within each form class, and this is to enable more feedback, more personalized attention and the ability to ensure every student has a teacher and older students they can feel supported by. We are developing our sporting, musical and performing arts programs and we have a very rich and vibrant art program in place. The acquisition of languages is important and we offer native speakers of French, Mandarin and Bahasa Indonesian for our language classes. We have a small but in-depth Cambridge program and our results are improving rapidly as we build our resources and teacher depth.

I look forward to answering your questions and meeting your needs, please feel free to inquire or visit us at our Campus on Jl. Kemang Raya, Jakarta.

Thank you

Secondary Lead Coordinator
