Our Promise @Ichthus Schools
Ichthus Schools prepares students to strive for excellence in a global
society and to glorify God through their daily walk.
Ichthus Schools was established in 2001. 20 years ago (during this writing), when the founding director, Mrs SeeMun Suparno prayed earnestly in search of a school for her son, she was inspired by a vision to start a school, with the objective to teach students the way of the the Lord. The founding partners envisioned a school unlike others with the vision to transform the lives of every single student, to become the best version of who they can be, to find their God given talent and to use it to serve others. And thus the vision,
"For whoever comes to have a Transformed life"
Ichthus School Vision
“We believe that all students grow and develop in their individual ways and that as educators it is our privilege to impart knowledge, biblical values and ability to discern right from wrong in leadership, in action and in communication. In addition as educators, it is our duty to prepare students to live a Christian life in a global society.”
Ichthus School Mission
Personal transformation happens through developing a relationship with Christ. In a safe and conducive environment for student’s growth, we help your children discover and nurture their God-given talents, through strong academics anchored on Biblical foundations. Our teachers, strong in their faith, qualiﬁed and passionate, will willingly go the extra mile for our students.
The meaning of Ichthus
The name chosen for the school is a word received from God as experienced by our Director. ICHTHUS means "ﬁsh" in Greek, and the acronym stands for:
‘IESOUS’ - JESUS
(Greek X - XHI)
‘CHRISTOS’ - CHRIST
‘THEON’ - GOD
‘SOTER’ - SAVIOUR
“And He said to them, “Follow Me, and I will make you ﬁshers of men.”
The School Logo
The logo of ICHTHUS is God inspired. Each character in ICHTHUS is inscribed in the logo. The palm leaves in a crossed bundle is symbolic of Christ's disciples and the palm leaves used on Palm Sunday to welcome and celebrate Jesus's entrance to Jerusalem. There are twelve leaves on each palm representing the twelve apostles. The four colours have their individual signiﬁcance as explained below :
