CURRICULUM


We learn from every experience throughout our lives.  Children's learning takes place during scheduled sessions within and out of school, and at home.  We place strong emphasis on experiential learning and therefore the curriculum should be regarded as the total integration of the learning opportunities available. The curriculum is also designed to help children to achieve their maximum potential in all aspects of life so as to become productive, ethical, responsible global citizens and eventually make a full and useful contribution to society.  
Extra-curricular activities are very important and an integral part of our curriculum.
