Hi everyone! My name is Vita and I am the head of the International Department in PENABUR Jakarta. It is my pleasure to greet you all. I hope you and your family are always in excellent health.

In our schools, we cultivate a distinguished learning experience designed to meet our children’s needs. We understand that academic achievements are important to pave our children’s future. We offer the Cambridge International Curriculum from Checkpoint, IGSCE, and A Level. We also have the NCUK International Foundation Program for a pathway to University. Moreover, every year, we cater to our students’ talents and potentials by providing opportunities for them to join national and international competitions. And to further boost their confidence in collaboration with others, we have STEAM project-based learning imbedded in our curriculum.

In addition to academic performance, we are well aware that it is equally essential to maintain our children’s mental health and wellbeing to ensure optimal performance. Thus, we have CFYG or Compass for Young Generation which helps students to shape their calling and ignite their thirst to be involved in the community.

In addition, as a Christian Education Institution, our teaching and learning activities are based on Christian values. With the inevitable advances in technology, we believe that students need to be not only digitally ready but also responsible. Thus, our character building programs are aimed to support this. All in all, our schools offer a balanced learning curriculum to help students steadily march towards their goals.

We nurture the next generation of lifelong learners and leaders who are tough in heart, excel worldwide, serve others, and live by the word of God. Join us to make the world a better place for our children’s future.

Greetings Students, Parents, and Faculty,

I’m thrilled to join BPK Penabur Jakarta as the new head of school. My name is Benedict Rinne, and I bring with me a dedication to building strong relationships and fostering collaboration at every level.

Our Shared Values and Vision

Our school’s mission is rooted in Christian values and the pursuit of excellence. Together, we cultivate an environment that prioritizes excellence, integrity, and service, ensuring that every student is empowered to become a globally competitive and productive citizen.

Curriculum: Nurturing the Whole Child

Our approach to education, anchored in the Cambridge curriculum and enriched by STEAM concepts, recognizes the unique potential within each student. We provide not just an academic education but a holistic one, developing skills, talents, and virtues that prepare students for meaningful lives.

Connecting and Growing Together

The upcoming school year is filled with promise and possibility. We’ll deepen our community connections, expand our academic offerings, and explore new ways of learning together. From new parent-teacher collaboration programs to enriching student-led initiatives, there’s something for everyone to contribute.

Join Us on This Journey

I invite each of you to actively engage in our community’s life. Share your ideas, volunteer your time, and embrace our shared mission. Together, we can achieve greatness.

As we begin this exciting academic year, let us strive together to realize our shared goals. I eagerly anticipate the achievements, discoveries, and growth that await us.

May we always remember the words of Proverbs 16:3: “Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and he will establish your plans.”

Warm regards,

Benedict Rinne

Statement of Ethos & Values:

At PENABUR International School we value all children as individuals and treat them with respect regardless of their age, gender, race, religion, ability or background. We strongly believe that every young person, regardless of their background or ability, has the right to a high quality education. As a school we aim to be a school that enables children to thrive and to reach their full potential ensuring they are fully equipped for the next steps within education and for adult life.

We build positive relationships within a nurturing environment and promote a ‘can do’ attitude which helps children to become more creative, resilient and independent. Through developing these attitudes and skills, we see children have greater self-esteem and become more confident and considerate members of the whole school community. We want them to feel proud to be part of PENABUR International School.

Our Values:

Our values of B.E.S.T. run through everything we do here at PENABUR and we aim to instil these values in all of our students. We want to help develop our children to be happy, well-prepared and confident young children, who adopt an ‘I can’ mentality and aim high in all they do. To enable us to achieve this and to be the very best we can be, we are committed to working in partnership with students, their parents/carers and the community. Our absolute aim is to make the most of every young person’s time with us.

Be Tough: We want our pupils to be persistent and independent in performing tasks both academically and personally.  We endeavour to ensure that they are responsible, honest and humble. That they believe in themselves, they are skilled and creative. Realising through hard work they can achieve great things within school and beyond.

Excel Worldwide: Loves to study and read. Our pupils are taught to celebrate their individuality and to formulate their own opinions, expressing them maturely. To excel with National and International insight, mastering science and technology. We aim to instil a sense of bravery within our pupils and create an ethos where it is ok to make mistakes as long as we learn from them.

Share with Others: Passionate about leadership and being a role model. Our pupils are taught to be respectful citizens within school and the wider communities. Showing compassion, understanding and tolerance towards others regardless of their age, gender, race, religion, ability or background. To have an attitude of empathy. Able to socialize.

Trust in God: Relying on God in every aspect of life.
