'Harmony between man and nature' is the hallmark of the well known Anhui style of architecture in China and the campus at SWIS reflects elements of this architectural style, with the three brick buildings surrounding two spacious, open and leafy courtyards.
Great attention has also been paid to Feng Shui within the campus. The element of water from the fountains brings life, spirit and talent to our school, while the main entrance welcomes good fortune. Light and good ventilation also ensure that SWIS is happy and healthy environment.
Each classroom is equipped with an interactive whiteboard, computers and the resources necessary to stimulate inquiring young minds. Young students have easy access to an outdoor soft surface play space, complete with a climbing frame and a sand pit as well as their sand and water trays. They also have a dedicated area where they can safely enjoy riding their tricycles, bicycles and scooters.
The Primary School is housed in bright purpose built and individually furnished, well resourced classrooms with extensive open areas where groups of students can work independently.
