School Uniform

The PISA school uniform is an important part of our identity as students of Pensmith International STEM Academy. For more information about the school uniform see the links below. Uniforms can be purchased from the school shop.


Community Involvement

Community life is important for our school and we want for our students to actively participate and contribute to our school community. This involvement allows the development of skills, talents and collaborative successes from participation.

There are a number of ways we encourage community involvement. Through our house system, the student council and voluntary / community projects.

House System

When students and staff join PISA they are allocated into a house teams. There are various individual and team competitions that students participate in throughout the year where they represent their house.

Student Council

The Student Council of Pensmith International STEM Academy exists for the student body. This means Council members listen to student voices and take actions to develop the school and improve the convenience of school life. Therefore, PISA students have the responsibility and right to raise issues and inform their class representatives of matters for discussion during their regular Student Council meetings. Moreover, through students being involved with the Student Council, they will strengthen their leadership skills and identity as a representative of the School.
