Departments and Subjects
Our comprehensive Kindergarten Programme is divided into two phases. During these two years the child is systematically guided towards writing and speaking skills.
In Kindergarten 1, the prime objective is to provide a safe, secure and nurturing environment where your child develops in the care of professional, qualified staff. It is a happy and lively department in which caring teachers cater to individual needs and varying stages of development.
During each day children have opportunities for structured play activities, practical art and craft, small and large construction and games. Children learn socialising skills through interaction with other children and adults. Opportunities are created for each child to expand their world through imagination and play.
The Kindergarten room is filled with wonder and surprises to be explored through every learning intelligence. There is singing, story telling, personal-discovery activities, group-discovery activities, number manipulations, jumping and running learning games, the exploration of patterns, and finger painting.
This holistic approach is continued in Kindergarten 2 when children are aged 4-5 and intellectual growth develops from activities such as sharing stories and discussion, writing, number games, observation and scientific experiences as well as technology, craft and design, painting, imaginative play, music and singing. Unobtrusive and regular internal assessment is conducted throughout the year.
The strongest possible links with home are fostered, and there are plenty of opportunities for learning. We encourage parents’ participation in the teaching and learning process and in supporting teachers in organizing activities.
Subjects at Kindergarten Level:
Young children are active learners and therefore operate most effectively through first-hand experiences. They are encouraged to question, explore, apply and test what they know and can do. They are also encouraged to develop their ideas and language as they begin to assimilate the knowledge and skills that they will build on throughout their lives.
Our children are introduced to social etiquette and learn to treat one another with respect. They are also encouraged to work together in teams and groups.
Our teachers devote themselves to identifying and tapping the gifts and talents of each student, encouraging them to rise to their full potential and sowing in them the will and perseverance to do so. Leadership qualities are often spotted and nurtured even at this young age.
Subjects at the Primary Level:
During the four years of Middle School education, the student's intellectual, aesthetic, physical and cultural growth and development are intensified and extended to a foundation course designed to suit children from an international background.
The Curriculum aims to produce confident and competent learners, who are able to communicate effectively. Our teachers encourage group interactions such as developing learning communities, stimulating student/faculty discussions, and encouraging electronic exchanges. Opportunities are also sought beyond the classroom to broaden the experience and learning of each child through visits and field trips.
Subjects at the Middle Level
During this critical phase in their lives, we help students stay focused on their goals as they advance and further their knowledge, skills and abilities. It enables students to fulfil their potential and develop social skills to become confident, responsible citizens who set their goals high in order to meet the challenges of a changing world.
We emphasise the importance of these last years at school towards producing responsible young women who will be assets to their families, professions and the world at large.
Subjects at the Secondary Level
At the end of this stage, a strong and comprehensive educational foundation equips students with the knowledge, skills and understanding of subjects enabling students to continue their onward education in different subject combinations and curriculum.
Students in the Senior Secondary phase begin to become more specialised in their studies and focus on eventual career choices.
The amount of specialist teaching increases to equip students for higher education and the professional world.
