A message from

Zoë L Hauser

Head Of Primary

Zoe Hauser, Principal, BD Somani International School

A visit to our classrooms will show you busy and joyous places of work where students and teachers are actively engaged in collaborative, challenging, authentic problem solving and debate. Old fashioned methods of lecture, rote memorization and regurgitation of facts do not have a place in our school where we aim to prepare children for success in a rapidly changing world and unpredictable future careers.

Teachers at B.D. Somani are guides and facilitators for children’s experiences in exploration, discovery and making meaning of their world. Their job is to provide open-ended materials, ask essential questions and pose problems so that children can, confidently, ask their own questions and take risks in finding and suggesting solutions. The necessary skills in literacy and numeracy are embedded in context so that these skills are practiced in meaningful ways.

Even from their early years with us, B.D. Somani students are noted by visitors to be confident in their communication skills, curious and questioning, compassionate and respectful of each other, collaborative and cooperative in their endeavours. They warmly and willingly embrace visitors and draw them into their work and play, sharing their vibrant drawings, their engaging stories, their complex mathematical challenges and a host of “light-bulb” moments.

Through first-hand research on field trips, museum visits, interviews of experts and use of our library resources, children learn how to gather, analyse, evaluate and use information to form their own conclusions and opinions.

In Primary, we nurture life-long learners who are prepared to tackle ever more complex explorations in their Secondary and Tertiary educational journeys as well as being responsible citizens of their communities within and outside school.

We welcome visitors to share in our joy of learning.
