Welcome to the Primary School

David Harrold
Primary School Principal

In a welcome message like this, it would be all too easy to highlight the visual arts on display in the hallways, the Student Council which meets every week, the musicals performed (and directed) by students, the rich After School Activities programme on offer, or the TISA Titans' sports achievements. But in all reality: these activities are merely the icing on the cake. What really matters is the quality of the IB's Primary Years Programme offered at TISA and its delivery on a daily basis by our dedicated teachers who work with our students. We value parents as partners and work with you as we guide your children through their primary school journey in order to educate them to be life-long learners.

The focus of our program is a commitment to structured inquiry as the main vehicle for learning and we give our students the chance to grow through their discoveries and experiences. This is accomplished through the Primary Years Programme (PYP) where student learning takes place in relevant real-world contexts. Clear goals and expectations are discussed and negotiated with students so that they are active participants in their own learning.

We are confident that students educated in our international setting will gain the knowledge, skills (including numeracy and literacy) and understanding to enable them to contribute positively to their future communities. A warm and open environment in the primary school classes encourages the involvement of parents to share and participate in the formative years of their child's education. An extensive After School Activities program allows students to explore their passions and interests and extend their learning beyond the classroom.

Working at TISA is my third international school experience, I have previously taught in New Zealand, Papua New Guinea and Vietnam. I have worked at TISA for two and a half years teaching in P7 and P1 and have been a team leader, ELC Coordinator and Curriculum Coordinator during that time.   I enjoy working with the students, teachers and parents at TISA and am delighted to be supporting the school community in the role of Assistant Primary Principal.
