Pastoral Care Groups (PCGs)
Through this PCG program, we aspire to create small group (8-15 students) where students can build open and safe relationships, while under the shepherding of a caring teacher. An outcome of these groups has also been to build a bridge for easier and more accessible communication between parents and teachers.
A student who feels welcome and at home in the school setting is much more likely to feel good about him/herself, and excited to participate in the life of the school, including the formal learning, or classroom environment. The IICS JH House Program plays an integral part in supporting the notion of educating the whole child in God’s truth, while embracing IICS core values, and building and developing individual character.
We realizes that a successful education must meet the academic, social, and spiritual needs of its students. The IICS Junior High House Program strives to meet the aforementioned needs by supplementing the school’s formal academic learning environment with a dynamic and supportive, but less formal, learning environment.
The House Program consists of five ‘houses’ in which the students ‘reside.‘ We have the Bali Sharks, Java Rhinos, Komodo Dragons, Papua Eagles and the Sumatra Tigers. The program was designed to facilitate unity and a sense belonging, in which students can be nurtured, as they discover their identities.
This program offers up to 23 extracurricular classes / activities in a variety of fields, including academics, sports, arts and languages. Each student has the freedom to choose the activity in which he / she will participate during the last block of the day, every Friday. It is a fun and enjoyable way to conclude a long, hard week of diligent studying!
Moving class method is considered as one of the best international practices for school. It allows the students to move from one class to another so they will keep themselves active. This practice is proven to induce students' motivation to learn as it promotes better focus, and at the end improve their academic result.
Digital Classroom (Chromebook)
All students receive Chromebook during their 3 years study in Junior High. We realize that nowadays students must move towards the digital era, therefore it is important to make sure that the students are immersed fully in technology. We hope that this technology-based education will prepare students for their future study.
