The Overseas School of Colombo, an IB World School, is committed to guiding our global community toward international and intercultural understanding. OSC develops the whole person as a responsible learner, striving for personal excellence within a cultural diverse environment.

Ms. Chee Wan is from Australia. She was previously teaching in international schools in Azerbaijan and Germany and joined OSC one year ago.

Mrs. Deborah has been part of the OSC community for seven years in the role of an Assistant Teacher in the Early Primary Years Programme. This will be her fourth year in Kindergarten. Last year Deborah welcomed in to the world a beautiful baby boy Liam.

Mrs. Shehara Weerasinghe is in her sixth year at OSC as an Assistant Teacher in Early Primary Years Programme, with this year being her third year in Kindergarten.

We look forward to a successful year with you and your children. We firmly believe in working in partnership with you to make your children’s learning a meaningful experience.

Communication:

We use communication books to communicate and contact you. Please check everyday. This website will also be updated regularly. Please refer to this weekly. Each student has a message book. A newsletter will be emailed every Friday. Please refer to that and the calendar to find out about upcoming events.

We would appreciate if we are informed of any special events that occur in your child’s life which may impact their routine. (eg: Parents leaving the country, grandparents/ family friends visiting, accidents or demise within the family etc.)

Parental Involvement:

As parents, you will be given many opportunities to become actively involved in your child’s learning. OSC aims to provide opportunities to create a valuable partnership between parents/ carers and ourselves.

We welcome parents to share their knowledge, experiences, special skills and talents with the class, if these are linked to the Units of Inquiry covered in Kindergarten.

Each class will have two support parents. The role of the support parent is to assist the teacher with school and class events. The Primary Principal will be meeting with ALL primary support parents early in the year. Thereafter, the homeroom teachers will meet the class support parents.
