Community Voices Kuniko

Kuniko Fuls, Grade 3 Parent, Dover Campus

Since my daughter Aika joined K1 in 2016, she has repeated the school values at home, especially 'Be kinder than necessary' which I believe requires a lot of imagination and observation of one's environment. Being kind not only to your friends and teachers but also to ourselves is important as we sometimes tend to neglect our own wellbeing by following busy daily routines. Kindness can be extended further to the others in the community and then those you don't know. That is well promoted by the Service Learning part of the UWCSEA programme.

My husband and I are not originally from Singapore and so the UWCSEA Dover community has become like our extended family. We feel a sense of community, not only for our daughter but also for ourselves as parents. We value and trust in the school and community, and are impressed by so many aspects of their care - varying from how they have adjusted for students and families with the ever changing COVID situation, to how all the staff take care of our children while they are on campus!

UWCSEA’s educational philosophy encourages students to think, analyse and find solutions by putting importance on process. While the Japanese educational system teaches by asking students to memorize a textbook without asking why, UWCSEA’s education starts with letting students ask 'why' and values a more independent approach. I feel this is indispensable for our children, who are facing an ever changing and challenging future.

A better world starts with a drop of kindness from one individual, and this is something both UWCSEA and our family value, and encourage and practice in our daily lives.

Aman Singh Chauhan, Head of Facilities and Operations

My connection with UWCSEA is a unique one. I was busy climbing a so-called corporate ladder until I realised that I was slowly moving away from my values. My values are very close to UWCSEA's values. There is a unique sense of a united community which I cannot explain in words, truly it can only be experienced by being part of the remarkable culture created by the communities on both campuses.

This organization has impacted me personally as well as professionally in so many positive ways, and I am very grateful for the fact that I have an opportunity to be a part of its mission. Education, Sustainability and Peace are very close to my heart and the members of UWCSEA showcase their committment to these as values in action, day-in day-out - which I find inspiring!

Leah Daniels, Head of Grade 3, Dover Campus

I teach at UWCSEA because it defines the way I live my life. The school's mission and values are completely aligned with my own. I am part of a movement which believes that education is a force to unite people, as do I, and it lives and breathes that mission. It is immensely rewarding working with motivated, engaged students from all over the world and the professionalism of my colleagues is inspirational; we buzz on a daily basis. 

The Service programme is exceptional; permeates children of all ages and creates wonderful human beings contributing to the society we live in and the wider world.  I am inspired by our children and their motivation to learn, perform, organise, engage with others from all walks of life and take action. And, whilst there are opportunities to enrich the lives of the students I teach, my own life is enriched on a daily basis. UWCSEA is a thriving, energetic and wonderful place to be. Where else could I get this in my working life?

Ranita Gupta, Grade 2 Parent, East Campus

We are a family that believe in honesty, and in helping people. We believe in 3R's - Reuse, Recycle and Restore to protect Mother Earth. I'm proud that my son is a part of the UWCSEA family and he is learning how to give back to society. He has started to feel for fellow children in Kuma, Cambodia and has developed a passion for helping others. At UWCSEA, he has the opportunity to explore, innovate, improvise and learn. He showed great resilience during the home based learning phase, as he tried to do things independently and showed some great thinking while doing his work. I couldn't be prouder.
