I am humbled to be given the opportunity to lead NHJS (National High Jakarta School). NHJS’ foundation for academic excellence has been built over the years by numerous passionate school leaders and teachers who had focused on working towards realisation of our vision as an institution that offers an education of distinction.
Since its inception, NHJS has focused on Character Development, Academic Excellence and Life-skills as her three pillars of education. To date, NHJS has excelled in international benchmark examinations such as the iPSLE and CIE examinations as well as competitions such as ICAS. These accolades are testament for our excellent programmes for the academics.
Moving forward, we will be re-balancing our focus to ensure better programmes for Character Development and Life-skills. The holistic development of all our children are our priority. We want to nurture them to be confident Piagetians who can articulate our values and put them into action. We want to equip them to deal with real life situations and open their eyes to diversity of thoughts and realities. We want to enable all our children to be able to feel compassion for others and have a heightened sense of empathy.
We will continue to tap on the strong support of our parents and partners to create more opportunities to expose our students to authentic learning situations. We believe in generative conversations and constructive feedback from partners to improve our school and learning for all our charges.
We welcome you to join the National High Jakarta School family. Together, we will help your children discover themselves and realise their aspirations.

Although a parent’s role in their children’s learning evolves as kids grow, one thing remains constant: we are our children’s learning models. Our attitudes about education can inspire theirs and show them how to take charge of their own educational journey.
Suicide Games and Online Media: What Should Parents Do?
You may have heard of the Blue Whale game and Thirteen Reasons Why (13RW), or them trending on your social media feed. Such content has been circulating and may negatively influence our children to view suicide as a viable way to deal with their problems, or even romanticise or glamourise the act of suicide.
End of Year Examination has started and its that time of the year again when our children will be busy studying. Students can
experience intense pressure during exam time. They will need all the support, guidance and assistance as they learn how to set the discipline of studying for their examination.
Piaget is proud that it had been the only organisation recognised by SEAB to undertake the commission of the examinations in
Indonesia. The school hosted the Singapore Examinations and Assessment Board (SEAB) for their visit to recertify the school as
the only examination centre for the international Primary School Leaving Examination in Jakarta. The recertification is a necessary process to validate the school for the examinations. The team, ably led by Mr Toh Poh Guan, Director for Assessment Services and his other colleagues visited the school from 27 to 28 April 2017.
