Curriculum Details
Curriculum type
Local
Curriculum planning
A child-centred curriculum formulated with reference to the development and interest of children with the aim of helping children bring into play their potentials, stimulating thinking and fostering holistic development. \n- Through participation in various learning activities, children master the skill of learning, restructure experiences and develop knowledge to establish solid foundation for future learning. \n- Learning in an enjoyable and open educational environment favourable to their growth and sufficient time for learning encourage self-directed learning, voluntary exploration and creativity of children.
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
Cantonese and English are the teaching media. Under joint efforts of teachers of the Chinese and English languages, children develop bi-literate and tri-lingual abilities in the immersive way. Putonghua lessons taught by Putonghua specialists are arranged for children in the age group of 3 to 5. The curriculum is designed with reference to children’s development and interest. Through participation, children gain practical experiences and master learning skills during the course of learning. They also develop independent, voluntary, independent and responsible attitude besides learning to be happy to try and cooperate with the others.
Assessment of children’s learning experiences
A child’s learning outcome is assessed based on records of ongoing observation. No examinations or tests are given.
School Characteristics
School vision and mission
We offer quality education based on the spirit of Jesus Christ. Teaching methods designed to stimulate thinking are used to attain holistic development of children and help them bring into play their potentials, ready for challenges, develop global vision and become future pillars of the society. \n We endeavor to provide quality education to train students as learned, independent, loving, responsible and civilized world citizens who reflect upon themselves. \n To foster the habit of pursuit for the truth for effective understanding and application of technology in the future. \n Imagination and creativity are fostered through artistic creation. \n Through religious and moral teachings, children develop positive outlook on life and grow up as thankful, loving, caring, forgiving individuals as a way to lay the foundation for development of a peaceful society.
