In accordance with children’s physical and mental development, we inspire and develop children’s potential in six vital learning areas: language, early mathematics, arts, physical fitness and health, self and society, as well as science and technology through stories and games. Meanwhile, we tailor-make projects and design activities to suit children’s specific learning interests, making sure that materials run the games from easy to challenging.
Learning / Teaching Approach & Activities
Through an activity-based approach, students are provided with ample opportunities to learn and explore elements interactively. This largely impacts their critical thinking and motor skills. Field visits, project study and activity design are some of the hands-on activities organized during the year. Through observation, scientific experiments, self-explored analyses, mathematical cognition, shared book reading, English / Mandarin / Cantonese rhymes reading, storytelling, life experience sharing, group activities, and reports during activities, students’ thinking and problem-solving skills are fine-tuned and developed. By enhancing children’s interest in language, ethics, emotion, social skills, physical exercise, music, aesthetics and various domains, we aim to enrich their life experience and self-confidence.
Continuous observation and summative assessment objectively record children’s progress. We analyze children’s development and learning outcome in every aspect. By establishing individualized children’s learning portfolio, we also hope to reflect their overall growth.
We hold orientation for new students, parent-observation days, visits, seminars, religious activities, music and speech competitions. We have also joined the EDB School-Based Support. We also train children’s muscle coordination and help them develop good exercise habits. Recognition is given to those parents who accompany and guide their children during reading. We arrange for K3 students to visit our Primary School, to participate in P1 bridging activities, and to be immersed in one-month adaptation in-class activities. Teachers take great care in catering to the children’s diverse learning needs.
