Dutch Language and Culture Programme

Dover MS DutchClasses

Dover Campus

First (mother tongue/native) language Dutch lessons are available as part of the academic learning programme from Grade 7.

All students in K1–Grade 12 are also able to sign-up for our after-school Home Languages Programme.

Grades: 7–12

Dutch has been offered in UWCSEA's secondary school since the 1980’s, and is a key reason that many Dutch and Flemish expats have chosen the Dover Campus. The programme begins in Grade 7 (equivalent of the Dutch brugklas) and continues where Groep 8 finishes. This allows students at the Hollandse School in Singapore, and others looking for a Dutch learning environment, to continue their education in Dutch language and culture. 

The focus on culture is not limited to lessons in literature, which also cover Dutch history, but also extends to film nights and activities celebrating traditions such as St. Nicholas' surprises. We also visit exhibitions highlighting aspects of Dutch history at museums such as the Asian Civilisations Museum, and welcome visitors to campus who have connections to the Dutch community - in the past this has included the Dutch Ambassador, a princess and a writer.

In the past High School students have also traveled in the region to Melaka in Malaysia and Java in Indonesia on history and culture trips, usually over a weekend or a week during school holidays. This aspect of the programme will be reviewed in light of travel restrictions that may be place at the time of the proposed trip and alternative arrangements will be offered if possible.
