The Swedish Supplementary School will relocate to Stamford American International School’s centrally-located campus in August 2015, exclusively offering supplementary language classes to the Swedish community in Singapore.
The Swedish Supplementary School has been educating children residing in Singapore in Swedish language and culture for over 20 years. Students, from preschool to year 9, will relocate to Stamford for the weekly program that builds and maintains skills to strengthen affiliation to native Swedish culture.
Stamford offers accessibility for students islandwide, being located just 10 minutes from Orchard and on the doorstep of Woodleigh MRT station. In addition, Stamford’s Senior Library will house the Swedish Supplementary School’s wealth of Swedish books and magazines.
Ana Pharaon Guve, at the Swedish Supplementary School comments:

Combining our robust teaching standards with Stamford’s world-class facilities and central location we believe we can enhance our ability to support students in achieving their Swedish educational goals. We are delighted to be joining the Stamford community and we are excited for our students to join the welcoming, international spirit that exists at Stamford. This is an exciting next step on our journey.”
