Welcome to another school year! Our commitment at Asia Pacific World School is to provide a safe and intellectually challenging environment that will empower students to become innovative thinkers, creative problem solvers and inspired learners prepared to thrive in the twenty-first century.

John Dewey and Bertrand Russell said that international mindedness is one of the fundamental aims of education. How very true... This is what APWS believes in starting early by the time they graduate they will be rock solid ready to face any challenges in their lives

Philosophers and true educationist consider the prime motive of education is to prepare the future generation to participate in contributing towards greater well-being of humanity and the planet what Gautama Buddha called sugata, and Aristotle called eudaimonia.

The eudaimonic or sugata conception of education is the most inclusive. Both Buddha and Aristotle pointed out, that the well-being of the individual depends on the well-being of the community (sangha), extendable to the well-being of the species and the ecosystem, and the well-being of the ecosystem depends on the well-being of the individual. The well-being of the individual includes the physical, intellectual, emotional, societal, ethical, aesthetic, and spiritual dimensions. This is what I want every student of APWS to be

According to Noam Chomsky world renowned linguist “Education is really aimed at helping students get to the point where they can learn on their own” His gist on education is my mantra for all students

The old proverb of 'it takes a village to raise a child' is one that rings true for me and with this in mind I believe it is the exceptional quality of our staff, the supportive partnerships with our families, and the nurturing relationships with our students that make the difference for each child. We are all stronger together.

We seek to instill in our students a passion for learning that will bring the knowledge and understanding they will need to make a positive contribution to the communities in which they live and work.

APWS gives prime interest in moulding students’ life-skills and soft skills: intellectual, emotional, physical, social and spiritual - ultimately leading to a hike in their sense of self awareness, agency, rights, voice and empowerment. We encourage students to be “a voice, not an echo”. They are given opportunities to showcase their hidden talents and potentials. We strive for the well being of our students, staffs and community by providing quality education.

“Work hard in silence… Let success, make the noise…”
