Mission and Aims
The Polio Points rewards system has become the DNA of our school.

Our School’s mission makes a critical difference in the lives of others
At Jerudong International School (JIS), students are encouraged to make 'Teaspoons of Change', small but significant ideas, attitudes and actions that have a positive impact on both our School and the local community. The School's student profile has six key aims (Engagement, Leadership, Communication, Thinking, Resilience and Integration) that we would like all of our students to show as often as possible. Each time a student does something special that aligns with the aims of the student profile they are awarded a Polio Point.
When the students earn a point for each aim the school will donate $1 to UNICEF to help in the global fight against Polio eradication. This $1 goes to vaccinate a child in the developing world against polio. By living our values, we save lives. We are grateful to Aetna International for sponsoring the Polio Points Scheme.
Excellent achievement by students at JIS mean that children in the developing world will now have their own chance to flourish.
The Polio Points project, like this video, is entirely student led and directed.
