Admissions

Bambujaya Bilingual School

All families of prospective learners must first complete the learner application form and return it to Bambujaya Bilingual School with the enrolment fee and proof of the child’s date of birth and nationality (photocopy of passport/birth certificate). Interested parties can obtain a copy of the learner registration form by visiting our Bambujaya office and collecting an information pack, or they may write, phone or email the office to have a copy sent.

Completed application forms (with the child’s previous school learning reviews/reports attached) should be returned to the office. Bambujaya will review completed application forms according to the admissions criteria listed above.

Bambujaya School Contact

Prospective learners and their family will be asked to attend a meeting with our Director. Prospective learners aged four or over may also be asked to undergo a brief assessment to determine their level of Khmer and English proficiency.

Following this meeting our Director will meet with our learning team. At this point a taster session in class would be offered if the application was to proceed.

The Director will make the final decision whether Bambujaya is able to offer the prospective learner a place. Before making a final decision, the Director may also arrange to meet with prospective learners and their family.

Families meet with the School Coordinator to discuss the fee schedule, along with any additional costs.

Prospective learners for classes, which are already full, will be placed on the waiting list. Families will be contacted as soon as a place becomes available.

Families of children registered in classes with places available should read the fee policy and schedule carefully before filling in the application form. Completed forms should be returned to our Bambujaya office with the enrolment fee. (Please see Bambujaya fees)

The Leadership Team will agree to a date on which learners may begin classes when their application form and fees have been received. At this time the first installment of tuition fees should also be paid.

* Children should reach the ages indicated in the table above during the academic year to be eligible for our classes.

Admission Criteria

1. Class Size

We limit learning facilitator to children ratio to 1:15 (Kindergarten: Pre-K, K1 & K2), 1:20 (Grades 1&2) and 1:24 (Grade 3 upwards). Should we receive an application for entry to a class which is already full, we will place the child’s name on the waiting list for that class, providing the enrolment fee has been paid.

2. Age of the Registering Learner

Please provide a copy of your child’s birth certificate or passport with their registration form. We accept children into the class with their age group, but will occasionally make exceptions. If the child has been assessed by a relevant professional as having additional learning needs they might benefit from this arrangement if Bambujaya and the family agrees.

3. Nationality

As learning at Bambujya is facilitated bilingually (Khmer & English), we accept learners holding Cambodian nationality, as well as learners from Khmer and English speaking families.

4. Siblings Attending Bambujaya Bilingual School

Priority is given to learners who have siblings at Bambujaya. Should a class be full when a child with siblings at Bambujaya is registered, the child will be placed at the top of the waiting list for that class. They will be offered an interview for the next available space.

5. Special Requirements

We are a non-selective school and aim to accept all learners regardless of their race, religion or gender. However, if we feel we are unable to cater for a child’s additional needs because of Bambujaya’s physical limitations or other considerations such as staffing, we will discuss this with families.

6. Khmer/English Language Proficiency

The languages of instruction at Bambujaya are Khmer & English. All children registering who are over the age of four will be expected to undertake a brief assessment to determine their level of both Khmer and English language proficiency.
