What is the relationship between SLK Bali, SLK Sunter, SLK Makassar and SLi Jakarta?
- SLK Bali, along with its sister institutions in Jakarta and Makassar, is part of a cohesive network of Christian schools united by a shared vision and mission. Despite their geographical separation, these SLK schools are bound together by their commitment to providing quality education that aligns with Christian values and principles. Each SLK school, whether in Bali, Jakarta, or Makassar, operates independently while upholding the same overarching vision and mission. They all strive to nurture not only academic excellence but also the spiritual and moral development of their students. This common foundation fosters a sense of unity and purpose among the SLK schools, ensuring that students receive a consistent educational experience rooted in Christian ethics and values, regardless of their location within Indonesia.
- SLK-LLP Bali first opened its door in 2004. It is a well-established school that has grown steadily since it was founded.

- Currently, we do not offer transport to or from school. Children come in their own cars. Some parents have made arrangements with other parents to roster transport. We have adequate car park space/waiting area though it is expected that vehicular traffic will be heavy in the morning when school begins and, in the afternoon, when school dismisses.
Will my child have to sit for admission tests?
- Yes, there are admission tests. All prospective students entering the school from Grade 1 to 12 must sit for English Language and Mathematics tests (and any other tests that may be required depending on the Grade that they wish to enrol into). Interviews with prospective students are conducted after they have sat for the tests and have achieved a satisfactory grade in them. Those who barely meet the entry standards may be required to sign an Academic Probation condition. Places will only be offered to those who perform well. For entry to higher levels, students are expected to have adequate language competency and the relevant subject knowledge. Those who have not may be required to repeat the level that they are in.We are very selective of our students coming into the School and not all who have applied to us and sat for the admission tests will be admitted.For Lollypop Preschool, interviews with prospective students with our academic team are conducted.

- Religion classes for students are conducted once each week. Students select to attend Moslem, Hindu, Buddhist, Christian or Catholic classes.
- Yes. Excursions and field trips are always carefully planned and are an intrinsic part of the educational programme. Additional costs are involved and every student is expected to participate.
- Details on the Cambridge Primary and IGCSE can be found at https://www.cambridgeinternational.org/ .
- Assessment is an essential part of learning. We have two Semestral Examinations, and these are carried out in the course of the academic year. Continual Assessment would comprise class tests, assignments, oral presentations, project work, homework and other forms of assessment. Semestral Examinations are conducted in Oct/Nov (academic mid-year) and Apr/May (academic year-end). Students in Grades 1 do not have Semestral Examinations but they will be assessed through Continual Assessment.

- We have found that young children quickly bond with the Early Childhood staff and other children if they are not accompanied by their mother or nanny. For this reason, we discourage parents and/or nannies coming into the class with their children. We do ask that a parent or a nanny be present in the school for the first few days of the school year just in case the child is particularly distressed. In this case parents/nannies will be invited into class – but this is hardly ever needed.
What are the qualifications and experience of teachers, both expatriates and Indonesian?
- The school has implemented a policy that teachers must have a university degree, a teaching qualification (or working towards one) and a level of English proficiency. Expatriate teachers must have international experience.
- Yes. Experienced expatriate teachers are recruited from Australia, Canada, China, Ghana, India, Malaysia, New Zealand, Philippines, Singapore, South Africa, the U.K., the U.S and Vietnam. Our mainstream English Language classes are all taught by qualified expatriate teachers from the following countries: Australia, Canada, New Zealand, Philippines, the United Kingdom and the United States. In our recruitment of teachers, we make an effort to recruit local teachers who have studied overseas and obtained their educational/teaching qualifications. Every year, all our teachers receive in-service training and attend professional development courses to upgrade themselves and keep abreast with educational developments in the world.
If I want my child to study in other countries, will he/she be able to meet the standards required?
- Parents should find out information about admission to institutions overseas, what is required and the curriculum which these institutions have adopted. They may differ from the curriculum which the School has adopted and implemented. However, we know that the differences are not likely to be great and, in most cases, our students may have covered more. Nevertheless, it would be better to seek advice from the respective Academic Coordinators or the Principal early so that they could advise you accordingly.
What is the Parents Support Group (PSG)?
- The PSG is a group of parents who meet regularly to organise activities and seminars that engage and inform parents on topical issues and raise support for the school. All parents of students enrolled in the school are automatically part of the PSG and can participate in its activities. However, a core group composed of 4-5 parents representing the different levels is in place to coordinate and communicate with the school.
- The PSG always does its best to support and be involved in all activities of the school. It continually provides feedback for the School and is a partner in nurturing the students of the School.
How does the school canteen operate?
- Our school canteen is open each Monday and Friday. It is serviced by an outside vendor - Canteen Vienna.
- You can buy directly from the canteen counter.
- Pre-order your recess and/or lunch online via WA +628179021818 or via their instagram account @canteenvienna
Does the school have a good security system?
- The school is aware of the importance of the security and safety of our students. There are policies and practices in place to support this. All visitors must report to Security on arrival. We also have a closed circuit monitoring system installed at strategic places all around the Campus.
Will I be able to bring my phone to school?
- We have a no phone policy which means that when you arrive at school your phone must be turned off and it must be surrendered to your child’s homeroom teacher in the morning during Homeroom period time.
- Like with phones, we also have a no smart watch policy, therefore if you want to wear a smartwatch on your journey to school, it must go in your bag before entering the school premises. However, you are more than welcome to wear any other watch to help you keep track of your day.
