Curriculum planning
We view education as our mission. To accomplish this mission our school: encourages students to pursue and embrace truth and justice, cherish life, consolidate the values of “family”, nurture them to be wholesome in body, mind and soul and, at the same time, teaching them something they can use in “real life” so they can develop their potential.
Therefore, our curriculum places great emphasis on nurturing students in such a way that they will model themselves on Christ, love others and themselves and care for the needy and vulnerable; Recognize, appreciate, respect and explore life in its full meaning; Honour their parents, respect and regard teachers and peers, love and respect their spouse and foster filial harmony in the family; Be objective, pursue the truth and the rules to recognize that “God is eternal”; Set a good example for students, uphold justice.
We foster children’s balanced development in the domains of ethics, intellectual, physical, social skills, aesthetics and religion. We have a“corner time” which makes learning interesting and fun, letting them use different senses to explore. In our “learning corner” students can learn by themselves through the games. We integrate English and Phonics in our curriculum. Children can benefit from our English environment and learn the language through our series of story books, rhymes, songs, and teaching aids. Children learn useful vocabulary, sentence structures and improve their abilities for listening, speaking, reading and writing. We have an organic garden let students connected to nature.
We will follow the "Kindergarten Education Curriculum Guide" (2017) to plan curriculum. Children of nursery classes will not be asked to write, and there will not be mechanical copying exercises and drills on calculation.
Learning / Teaching approach and activities
Self-Learning: Students can choose different activities during corner time by themselves which helps them develop moral values, language skills, emotion control, sensory exploration, physical strength, creativity, social skills, intelligence and also religious values.
