SCHOOL PHILOSOPHY - Three Pillars of Excellence

Our School Philosophy is based on the belief that every child is a unique individual. Given the right nurturing, each child has the capability to achieve his or her full potential. We will provide a safe and secure learning environment for your child during these very important developmental years. The conducive environment will promote your child's intellectual growth, emotional stability, social adaptability and healthy living habits.

Our vision is to be an international school renowned for its excellence in education and holistic character development of the students. We want to instil a love of learning by using proven educational tools so that your child will be motivated to aim for excellence. Your child will enjoy learning while working hard to achieve the goals.


An integral part of our school's ethos includes focused character development where desirable character attributes will be taught using a formalised programme of instruction. We will emphasise key core values such as respect for self and others, responsible attitudes towards studies and the environment, integrity in behaviour, and initiative to be innovative and creative. These core values as well as other equally important character attributes will be emphasised in the classrooms, in the halls and during extra-curricular activities.

The Westlake character traits are encapsulated in three simple words "WE KIDS CAR4E". Throughout their time with us, our students will learn how to apply these important life values at school to prepare them to be ideal Westlake graduates.

Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it.
The opportunity for your child to learn good character values is now. What a child learns will lay the foundation for future success and happiness.
