Making Friends & Connections

There are many fun things to do in Singapore, but your new life in Singapore will be enhanced so much more by the new friends and connections you will make. Here’s our advice on how to make new connections.

Connecting with fellow Expatriates

Meeting expatriates is very easy in Singapore and there's a large community of people who have re-located from other countries. There are many sports and social clubs around Singapore which make it easy to meet new people. 

The role of the School in building your new community

At Dover Court International School we welcome the involvement of parents in school activities and extracurricular clubs. When you visit us and speak to other parents, you will soon realise that we pride ourselves on our strong community and family feel. Over the course of the year we run many events and invite parents to weekly assemblies so that you can see your children performing.

Helping your child make new friends in Singapore

Helping your child to settle can make a very positive impact on a child’s expatriate experience and social life. Encourage your child to participate in extra curricular-activities outside the classroom environment. This enables them to gain an opportunity to make new friends. A sport or activity that they are good at or interested, will allow them to build confidence within. There are many activities here in Singapore in which your child can be enrolled in whilst making new friends at the same time.
