    The School Curriculum Children learn through investigation, direct instruction, and collaboration. Using the guidelines of the Cambridge Primary Programme and the Sierra Leone National Education Curriculum which we introduced in September 2019, we provide a broad and balanced curriculum to develop the full potential of every child. Each day in the primary school, there are dedicated Mathematics and English lessons for a minimum of five one-hour lessons each week and science for two hours per week. Together, these three subjects are the Core Subjects - in recognition of their importance in all other areas of learning. In addition, the curriculum also encompasses foundation subjects: Arts, Humanities/Social Studies, Physical Education, French and Music. CO-Curricular Activities At DAWN, we aim to educate the whole child and we value formal and informal learning that enable children to explore and find new strengths.

Learn More A MESSAGE FROM THE DIRECTOR Battu Beatrice Jambawai is a former teacher and staff of the United Nations. THE DIRECTOR Welcome to DAWN International School Sierra Leone In September 2020, Dawn International School, Freetown Sierra Leone will be celebrating its second birthday! A lot has happened since September 2018. In our first year we offered only the international curriculum but by the second year we introduced the Sierra Leone National Curriculum as a result of popular requests. We are now offering the British International Curriculum and Sierra Leone National Curriculum from year I to VI. By the grace of God we will have Junior Secondary I in the Sierra Leone National Curriculum in September. Our children and their parents have cherished the school environment, staff and our way of imparting knowledge. We praise, thank and glorify our God and Father who has brought us so far! Like all other schools in Sierra Leone, we could not complete the academic year due to the outburst of Covid-19. The school was preparing for its first Inter-House Sports when the index case of Covid-19 was announced in Freetown causing the Government of Sierra Leone to order closure of schools on the 31 March 2020. Our children have not resumed regular classes since them. In June we started giving them assignments to keep them engaged until end of July while we await government announcement regarding reopening of schools. We cannot wait to start school again. As we prepare to return to school, we should all, that is students, teachers, support staff, parents and guardians be ready for the new ways of doing things. For instance the children and staff are going to wear face masks most of the time while they are indoors and we will reduce the play time to minimize physical contacts among the children. We started hand washing and temperatures recording before we closed in March. These practices will be more intensive in the new term until we put Covid-19 behind us. Since our school is very new and small we do not have the challenge of overcrowding. We have a safe and conducive learning environment for your child, very dedicated staff members and several support services including a sick bay with a trained and qualified Nurse and school breakfast and lunch. ​ Registration is now in progress and there are places for pre-school, Cambridge Year I to V and Sierra Leone Education Curriculum Prep I –VI. Relevant materials and pieces of information including admissions and medical forms, direction to the school, fee structures and uniforms are available on this website. You can also visit the school Monday to Friday from 01 July 2020 for further information. Yours faithfully Battu Beatrice Jambawai Director OUR VALUES The individual differences that make each child unique The common bonds that build a strong and vibrant community High achievement in learning and conduct Self-discipline and taking responsibility for our decisions Integrity and trustworthiness in all our dealings Diligence and persistence TEACH YOUR CHILD THE SCHOOL SONG DAWN School Song - Vocals 00:00 / 00:00 Chorus: Oh Dawn Inter, Dawn Inter National School With equal opportunity For boys and girls (X2) 1.
