With Invictus International School Phnom Penh receiving official certification from the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sport this week, the Singapore-based learning institute has announced an incredible opening offer.
Invictus is offering a special promotion for the first 100 students enrolling from now until August 31, with two academic years – 2020-21 and 2021-22 – available for only $5,000 per year. The offer reflects Invictus’ commitment to accessible education, with quality learning available over four terms normally available for $8,000 a year.
“Invictus is pleased to announce this auspicious opening offer to our pioneer students in these economically challenging times. At the heart of Invictus, we strive to provide the best education at accessible fees, and we feel this is the right way to start,” said John Fearon, founder and executive director of Invictus International.
The school is bringing to Phnom Penh the same successful model of premium education at an accessible price, with registration now open.
Invictus is also venturing into the “virtual campus” concept – www.invictus.family – to offer full-time home-based learning to students worldwide. This is the first virtual campus by the international school, after establishing three physical campuses in Singapore and two in Hong Kong, with the latest now in Phnom Penh.
Experienced teachers from Invictus International School campuses will conduct the Invictus Family interactive virtual classes following a structured timetable, just like a physical school.
Invictus Family will be offering full-time virtual classes from Grades 1 to 6 starting April 27 this year, with the possibility of secondary grades being added in August.
For those wishing to sign up for the virtual campus full-time, Invictus has further reduced its already accessible school fees to $4,000 per year. There is a one-time $1,000 enrolment fee.
The school principal expressed his excitement at joining Invictus International School in Phnom Penh.
“I am very excited to be joining Invictus in Phnom Penh and to have the opportunity to share my 18 years of teaching experience, which includes 12 years working in international schools around the world.
“Invictus has been working hard to create a stimulating environment that includes modern resources. The Invictus approach is towards a holistic education for all students and the passion for education is something that I am very excited to be part of.
“This is a fantastic opportunity to be part of a leading educational institution that focuses on quality education for all members of society.
“The opportunity to be in Cambodia is very exciting. The Kingdom is a fast-growing country that has a rich and diverse history. Cambodians value quality education and want to be leaders in the world,” said Clive Swale.
The veteran educator has a wealth of experience in teaching, having worked in respected institutions in Africa and South America, as well as in Vietnam, the UK and his native New Zealand over the course of his extensive career.
“I have strong knowledge of different curricula and how to utilise them. I have a very good understanding of assessment and how to use this data to improve student academic achievement levels. I use good systems to help schools achieve the best outcomes.
“I work hard with parents to get the best from the school and am up to date with changes in education and what it means for the students,” he said.
Invictus follows a UK-based international curriculum from Year 1 to Year 13, incorporates the leading Singapore Mathematics programme and offers three language courses – Khmer, English and Simplified Chinese (Mandarin).
• Year 1 – Year 6: International Primary Curriculum (IPC);
• Year 7 – Year 9: Cambridge Secondary Curriculum;
• Year 10 – Year 11: International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE);
• Year 12 – Year 13: Cambridge International “A” Level.
The learning of English, Khmer and Simplified Chinese, which Invictus considers crucial in giving its students a competitive edge, is one of the school’s unique selling points.
“Learning different languages develops students’ critical thinking capacity, improves memory and allows emotional intelligence.
“Learning more than one language allows students to not just become fluent in different languages, but also provides them with a greater sense of cultural identity and understanding.
“Ultimately students develop awareness of different forms of communication and can use this in our fast-changing world to make good career decisions,” said Swale.
The father of two said study at Invictus brought more than just academic excellence.
“Invictus is bringing quality education at an accessible price to Cambodia.
“I also see it as an opportunity for students from different countries to join a school that will have many differentnationalities, providing them with the chance to make lifelong friends,” said Swale.
