Pal International School offers a distinctive model of learning, combining state-of-the-art technology with the traditional values of respect, generosity, compassion and selflessness thus nurturing future wholesome leaders.

Our deliberately small classes and carefully selected staff result in a caring atmosphere and a close and nurturing relationship with teachers and students.

In addition to leading our nation in academic and moral teachings, Pal International School offers a range of extra-curricular and co-curricular activities to help our students develop the skills and knowledge they need to succeed. These include creative and performing arts, public speaking, sports and more.

Student Leadership

At Pal International School, the development of leadership skills in a supportive environment is one of the learning opportunities offered to all students.
It is our aim to foster responsibility, initiative, independence and leadership in all our students who will be given many opportunities to engage in leadership activities throughout their school careers.
We develop our students into leaders with the selfless purpose to light up the world. Having effective student leaders who embody the values of wisdom, morality and diligence supports the culture of cultivating Compassion, Loving-Kindness, Equanimity and Selfless Joy.

The Student Representative Council (SRC) is a student organisation at Pal International School that operates in both the Primary School and High School. They are dedicated to representing its student body as well as representing the school to the community.
Through the SRC, there are a variety of student leadership opportunities that include student representation and extra-curricular involvement. As role models for the school, they must embody the virtues and ethics of a responsible and committed leader while working towards building the school internally and externally.
Through their efforts, they have accomplished driving school initiatives and community outreach projects and fundraisers for non-profit organisations.

House System

Students are sorted into one of four Houses when they enrol at Pal International School. Each House represents a virtuous quality known as the "Brahmaviharas."

The four Houses are:

  • The Stone Monkeys which represent the virtuous quality of appreciative joy ("Mudita")
  • The Snow Lions which represent the virtuous quality of compassion ("Karuna")
  • The Blazing Phoenixes which represent the virtuous quality of loving-kindness ("Metta")
  • The Cloud Dragons which represent the virtuous quality of equanimity ("Upekkha")

Students participate in academic and extra-curricular competitions in their House Groups.

Each House also has House Leaders to help foster a sense of unity and inclusivity throughout the school. Students are awarded House Points for helping others, achieving academic and creative excellence and displaying selfless behaviours.

Student Wellbeing

The wellbeing of our students is our top priority at Pal International School.

In our Dhamma classes, students are taught essential skills to support themselves academically, emotionally and socially. Students learn to recognise their inner desires and understand that their sufferings originate from their wants.

The Mindfulness practices allow students to identify their inner thoughts and desires such as pleasure, self-image and material possessions, and slowly train to let go of clinging. By letting go of their desires, students are able to strive for their best.

Grade Coordinators

Grade coordinators are the first contact for a student’s wellbeing. They aim to support students through difficult times. Through their professional judgement, they can also direct students to external services if deemed appropriate.
