Principal of  St. Joseph’s Institution International (SJI International) Elementary School

Situated on a spacious campus with impressive facilities, SJI International Elementary School is an independent coeducational day-school for children aged 4 to 12 years, in the Lasallian Catholic tradition. Now in its ninth year, the school has grown steadily and enjoys a strong reputation for a nurturing and dynamic education. We are committed to developing each child’s full potential within an involved and internationally minded community.

SJI International Elementary School seeks to appoint an outstanding Principal (Head of School) for August 2018.

SJI International has become one of the leading international schools in Singapore. SJI International Elementary School educates 685 boys and girls (aged 4 to 12 years), made up of close to 40 different nationalities. Although SJI International Elementary School operates as a separate entity, the Principal will work closely with the Principal of SJI International (High School), which consists of 1040 boys and girls, aged 12 to 18 years of age. SJI International Elementary School students are offered direct entry into SJI International (High School), with over 90% of students following this route at the end of Grade 6.

SJI International follows the International Primary Curriculum (IPC) is taken in ES.

Although SJI International accepts students of all faiths, following an inclusive approach with a strong emphasis on character education, it does have a well-developed Catholic programme for Catholic students.
