The WIS Inclusion Department look to maintain and enhance the profile of Inclusion throughout the school and the inclusive practices it promotes, particularly within academic departments.
Mother Tongue Support
Another valuable factor that plays a role in language acquisition is the maintenance of the student’s native tongue as this is the construct that the student refers to as a universal model. Instruction in the students’ native languages is perceived to be of high value at WIS.
Our Counseling Programme is designed to ensure that each child has the strongest support both educationally as well as socially. This programme is offered to both elementary as well as middle school students.

Middle School students are assigned an advisor at the onset of the academic year. A teacher/advisor to each group plays the role of student advocate and mentor during an academic year. The advisory programme encompasses various topics related to academic, personal and social development. Each grade meets with the advisor for a five minute period each morning as well as during one advisory session per week.
