Parents of triplet girls in Grade 8 from Sri Lanka
We are truly happy to be part of the Overseas School of Colombo community. Our three daughters began their first schooling at the OSC playschool just over a decade ago, and we believe this is one of the best decisions we made regarding their future. Like all new parents, we wanted to provide the best possible education for our girls, and we were convinced that the IB system was the most appropriate learning approach. Once we had made this decision, the obvious choice was OSC. Today our three girls are in Grade 8 at school, and we can say without hesitation that they have a deep love and respect for their school. It has proven to be a great place for learning and growing. The girls have had many teachers and support teachers over the years, and whilst each teacher is different in their individuality, they have all demonstrated great teaching skills, and won the girls’ trust through their friendliness, approachability, and patience. The last two years through the pandemic has been very challenging for all of us. Yet, with a well-structured Distance Learning Program, we were greatly relieved to continue to see our children learn and grow in trying and uncertain circumstances. All this is a reflection of the direction provided by the school leadership along with the high level of capability and experience in the faculty. As a family, we have all come to love being part of the OSC community. Apart from the satisfaction we get in seeing our daughters thrive in the school environment, as parents we have also enjoyed the wonderful feeling of community OSC provides for all its members through its many programs. At OSC, parents and students alike make great friendships and memories which we believe will stand the test of time!
