Message from the Chairman

My philosophy of education is deeply grounded in humanity. Who are we; what do we have to offer the world and why do we need education? The answer to these most fundamental of questions is precisely why there must be a Chempaka in the world.

As a founder of Athena, it is therefore my strong belief that this is why social grace is of such great importance. In order to achieve peace and happiness in society, we must give learning independence to the child. Every child is a pool of talent. Every child is an individual. When we understand these talents and work with these talents then social grace will come to the classroom.

Frequently Asked Questions

At L'école Chempaka International (LCI), we offer the Cambridge Curriculum from Primary level to IGCSE.

Enhanced by L'école's own dynamic method, honed over the years, and a careful selection of cross-curricular text books, our ICSE curiculum has proved to be a solid foundation for our students, and prepares them well to take up any programme in Senior School. With this base, they can excel in either the ICSE or Cambridge IGCSE streams in senior school equally well. Even by Grade 8, students will be in a position to make an informed choice and opt to focus on preparation for either the Cambridge IGCSE or ICSE Board examinations in Grade 10.

Our teachers undergo the ongoing training programme as well as online training programme by the University of Cambridge International Examinations to familiarise themselves with assessment objectives and marking scheme, so that they can formulate effective lesson plans. Lessons are tailored for active student participation and hands-on learning. Teachers constantly update their plans to make lessons effective and meaningful. We aim towards a student-led and teacher-facilitated classroom experience.

LCI offers the students a balanced mix of 12 selected subjects. In Grade 8, students are expected to take all 12 subjects to give them a wide base. In Grades 9 and 10, they may choose to drop a few subjects, aiming for a minimum of 9 subjects. Cambridge ICE is the group award of the IGCSE and requires the study of at least 7 subjects drawn from the five different IGCSE subject groups.
