Facilities

Transportation

In the last couple of years, the school has invested very significantly in building up its fleet of vehicles to ensure that pupils can be conveyed between home and school in comfort. We all know that one of the inevitable results of economic expansion in Dhaka is large-scale traffic congestion. In such circumstances, school buses represent the most efficient and environmental friendly way to move pupils to and from school.

 

The school provides transport facility to its students with a fleet of AC school buses. Our brand new Minibuses and Microbuses cover all areas in Dhaka city for the ease and safety of our students. Most have been newly acquired in the last two years, run on clean CNG and have air conditioning.

 

The routes for pick-up and drop-off are carefully designed and continually reviewed for efficiency. In addition to a driver, each vehicle also carries a helper to look after the children during the journey. All the vehicles are carefully and meticulously maintained and the drivers are selected for their careful and professional driving skills.

Cafeteria

OIS has its own cafeteria in its main campus. Our well trained chefs prepare the food in the cafeterias kitchen and we maintain proper hygiene to ensure the health and safety of our students.

 

The cafeteria in the main branch has a full-size pool table and a table tennis table for recreation. We also screen films after school of the books that students read for their studies, whether in Bengali or English.

 

Our other campuses have food facilities too. The cafeterias or shops in all our premises offer snacks, drinks and hot meals.

Health Care

Our campuses are all equipped with first aid boxes for minor injuries but there is also a doctor available during school hours on the main campus who can rush directly to any other location, as well as a school nurse.

 

Medipoint provides a single point medical centre equipped to provide immediate care in any emergencies. The Medipoint is overseen by a qualified pediatrician, supported by well-trained assistants. When necessary, he makes home calls on students. In emergencies or if a child becomes sick in school, initial medical care is provided free of charge.

 

The doctor takes particular care to maintain full and complete communication with parents and guardians, over telephone or face to face in person, so that all can work together for the very best interests of the children.

 

In addition to responding to accidents or sickness in today’s age, there is an increasing importance given to preventive healthcare-ensuring that children grow up fit and healthy. Medipoint takes a number of initiatives throughout the year with this very concern in mind. From time to time, there is liaison with outside agencies for inoculation programmes. In addition, on a regular basis all children undergo a routine medical check-up. This is an opportunity to check that all vaccinations are up-to-date, height and weight are progressing appropriately and that in all respects, the child is maintaining good health.

Digital Campus

Information and Communication Technology (ICT) has become an integral and inevitable part of life. We cannot lead a modern life without ICT. According to the current government’s commitment, we are hoping to have a “Digital Bangladesh” by 2021. However, to facilitate this process, ICT should be introduced into education at the primary school stage. Schools should have enough ICT facilities to supplement education.

 

Oxford International School is at the forefront of providing ICT-based education. OIS is the only school in Bangladesh with Computer Studies as a compulsory subject from Playgroup to Class 10 and the only school that offers Applied ICT in AS Level. Each section of the school enjoys its own dedicated computer lab, configured to meet the specialised needs of the students of that age range. All of our up-to-date computers are Internet-connected through our Wi-Fi system, allowing students anywhere in the school to access an inexhaustible bank of online-knowledge and learning materials to supplement and extend their learning.
