Curriculum Details

Local
Curriculum planning
Our School curriculum is based on the Bible. The Education Bureau's "Kindergarten Education Curriculum Guide" and the Development Appropriate Practice are the foundation of the school curriculum. With an integrated theme-based teaching model, children can, through the living and enjoyable explorative learning activities, acquire knowledge and skill and develop a positive attitude that enhances their multi-intelligence, unleashes their potential, and lays the foundation for future study.
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
We attach great importance to establishing an environment conducive to children's learning, strive to create a happy and lively atmosphere, and encourage children to come into contact with things around them for holistic development. Develop children's potential through diverse campus life and lay a good foundation for future learning.
Assessment of children’s learning experiences
Through continuous observation of children's learning performance, checklists are set according to different learning goals to record children's learning experience and development process.
School Characteristics
School vision and mission
St Thomas Church Kindergarten provides exceptional education for children aged 3-6 years old. Based on the principles of Jesus Christ we strive to build a school that glorifies God and advocates child growth. Our school motto is “Start children off the correct way, once they grow old they will not turn from it” (Proverbs 22:6).
Support to students
