Dulwich College is one of the UK’s oldest independent schools, founded in South London as a boys’ school in 1619. Dulwich College International (DCI) was established to bring the Dulwich education to students around the world and is now one of the fastest growing UK independent school networks. Through DCI, Dulwich College has been in Asia for ten years, building bridges between Eastern and Western communities and delivering high academic results and a well-rounded education.
The Dulwich network currently provides for over 7,200 students in eight cities and five countries, with Colleges in London, two campuses in theJinqiao and Minhang districts of Shanghai, in Beijing, Suzhou, Seoul,Singapore and Yangon and International High Schools in Suzhou andZhuhai.
Dulwich College Yangon is the ninth member of the Dulwich family of schools.
In August 2016, Dulwich College Yangon will commence operating on the Pun Hlaing campus, taking over the operations of the existing Pun Hlaing International School and developing its new purpose built campus from August 2016 onwards. In August 2017, Dulwich College Yangon will also open a state-of-the-art campus in the Star City residential development in Thanylin district.
The College will be co-educational and academically selective and on opening will cater for students in classes from Toddler to Middle School (aged 2 to 13). In the subsequent years the College will open additional year groups to build a Senior School with classes up to Year 13 (age 18).
The close collaboration among our Colleges stimulates innovation and encourages an international outlook, which we believe provides students an advantage in the future they will face. The result is a community where academic ability is nourished, creativity is valued, diversity is celebrated and inspiration is paramount.
Our College campus is an expression of our learning philosophy. We offer an educational environment designed to nurture the intellectual, physical, social, and emotional development of our students.
The Pun Hlaing campus is situated in existing facilities in the north-west of Yangon, adjacent to the beautifully landscaped Pun Hlaing Golf Estate. The school campus will be developed over six years into a purpose-built DUCKS, our early years school (aged 2-7), to Middle School site on five hectares (12 acres) of greenfield land, with facilities that provide a stimulating environment that inspires learning. When completed, the facilities will include science laboratories, black box theatre, indoor gymnasium, outdoor sports areas, football field and 25m swimming pool.
The Star City campus of Dulwich College Yangon sits on eight hectares (20 acres) of greenfield land on the south-eastern edge of the city, within the attractive Star City residential community. The campus is purpose built with world-class academic and extra-curricular facilities. It is divided into five distinct areas with separate buildings specifically designed for students in DUCKS (aged 2-7), Junior School (aged 7-11) and Senior School (aged 11 -18). The school buildings will have flexible indoor and outdoor learning spaces.
Our sport facilities at the Star City campus will include rugby and football fields, an indoor gymnasium complex and an aquatic centre with an Olympic-sized (50 metre) swimming pool and a learning pool. On completion of the development, the campus will have a performing arts centre, an art and design building and science laboratories.
Dulwich International Schools Foundation
Dulwich College International has established a charitable foundation, the Dulwich International Schools Foundation (DISF), built upon the principle of universal access to education. DISF unites the Dulwich College International family of schools and works to engage their communities in sustainable projects. It will act as the umbrella organisation for its own charitable initiatives as well as helping to support the charitable activities of the international Colleges. The foundation will be established under the UK Charities Commission later this year and has already launched its first initiative in Myanmar.
Dulwich College Yangon has entered a partnership with Magic Bus and the Dulwich International Schools Foundation (DISF) is supporting the launch of Magic Bus in Myanmar. Magic Bus is a long-standing charity operating in India that provides support for socially and economically deprived children. The organisation offers an activity-based curriculum to provide children living in poverty with opportunities and skills to help themselves out. Magic Bus works with over 360,000 children and 8,500 young people across 22 states in India.
Magic Bus recently launched a pilot programme in the UK and was named Charity of the Year at Asian Voice Charity Awards in May for its innovative use of a mentoring model and activity-based curriculum designed to engage children.
Magic Bus has started on a two-year project in Myanmar with an initial contribution of US$400,000 from the Dulwich International Schools Foundation. With sustained effort, Magic Bus and the DISF aim to make a marked difference to the local community in Myanmar and contribute to alleviating poverty.
