Prospective or New Parents – Start Here.

We'd like to show you the very basics of MIS first and then point you in the right directions. You can go quite 'deep' if you're interested into why we started and what some of our main policy and future goals are. You you can take a more leisurely skim, and figure out if we're speaking the same language as you might think about education, and then we can set up a meeting to discuss more with you face to face. If you're thinking about sending your child to MIS, the information may be overwhelming at first. Here a possible route to go through our site:

  • Start here to understand what the chief benefits of MIS are.
  • Go here to find out how to enrol your child and how much this will cost.
  • Go here to learn more about the philosophy underlying MIS.
  • Go here, to learn about the values and overall bench marks we pursue for children learning at MIS.
  • Go here to find out if there are other successful schools that use our approach.
  • Some aspects of our curriculum appear at first sight to be unusual, particularly when we compare this to conventional schooling. These 'curious questions' and their rationale is explained here.
  • Go here to learn about the innovations that MIS is pioneering in the educational sector in Fiji.

What are Our Expectations of your Child?

We totally believe that we are collaborators in your child’s education, that is we believe that we work with you. However, like all collaborations, they work best when all parties are ‘on side’. Here are the expectations that we have of children that join MIS.

  • Your child will do all parts of the curriculum assigned by the school that is relevant to their level of learning. Please note this is perhaps relevant for some parents who would prefer their child to pick and choose parts of the curriculum perhaps because it seems to these parents that our teachings go against fundamentals in their faith. 
  • The motivation to learn has to come from the child and the family itself. That is children cannot expect us to ‘force’ them to become motivated. We try our very best to make the curriculum and pedagogy (way we teach) as engaging as possible - because that turns out to be the best way that we can teach. However, if a child is apathetic and demonstrably shows that they do not want to engage in our teaching and learning process, then this is probably a sign that this is not the right learning environment for them.
  • Education at its best, does not just teaching abstract concepts, but it also tries to showcase how these concepts apply in the real world. The best way to do that is through field trips and of course we do many excursions into the greater Suva area and other times we go out of Suva for the day (such as our swimming assessments in Kiuva and Waidina). However we are now planning for an introducting three mandatory field trips that work with children at the Pod 5, Pod 8 level and Pod 11 & 12 level. It would mean your child spending significant time away from home (2 weeks to potentially 20 weeks) but under the supervision of three to four adults for the group. During this time children will still continue doing their set curriculum but it will be in the context of learning their second language (Fijian, Rotuman or Mandarin) as a total immersion programme; but they will also be doing components of the John Muir Award, an International enviornmental awareness programme.

This is a longer version of the advert. We guess this is more like the original version and then we chopped it into a quarter to fit into our televised slot.
