PRIMARY SCHOOL PROGRAM
Kindergarten | Grade 1 to Grade 6
LEARNING AREAS

Aligned to the international standards of the K to 12 curriculum, we cover subjects such as Languages, Mathematics, Sciences, Arts, and Humanities – cut across the grade levels to nurture our students' holistic development.

SPARKR MODEL

As part of our commitment to produce future-ready and globally competitive lifelong learners, we use the SPARKR Model as a framework in designing and delivering our programs. It promotes the acquisition of knowledge & virtues.

ASSESSMENT

We employ a balanced approach to assessment which involves multifaceted analysis of students' performance; using both traditional and authentic tools, to guarantee that assessment of learning is valid, reliable and realistic.

 
LEARNING AREAS
 
APPROACHES TO TEACHING & LEARNING
Shared-learning

Learning and growing with others through shared lives. The shared-learning principle suggests that learners can further develop their knowledge and skills by observing the different models they are exposed with and by building relationships with others. 

Praxis Approach

Putting what the learners know into action through good works. The praxis approach principle implies that for a person to be a lifelong learner, he needs opportunities to act freely and rationally. That way, he can potentially contribute to his own development and that of the society where he belongs.

Assessment & Evaluation

Ensuring that the learners are moving towards their purpose in life. Assessment centers on the processes inherent in the learner’s self-regulation. It assumes that the learner has a central and active role in monitoring and regulating their own performance both in understanding the target goals and in using strategies to achieve these goals.

Reflective Practice

Aligning the learners' thoughts and deeds through deep thinking. Reflection helps us align our thoughts with our actions. In SPARKR Model, reflective practice is done intentionally. It is a conscious effort done individually and collectively amongst learners and facilitators.

Knowledge Transfer

Sustaining and transferring knowledge and values to others.​ This principle is grounded on the temporal nature of the learner. The learner's life, as we know it, is temporary. Hence knowledge transfer is necessary to ensure availability of knowledge, skills, and values for the next generation.

Resource Stewardship

Maximizing our resources to fulfill the learners' purpose and destiny. The SPARKR Model takes into account the importance of learning how we can responsibly use our God-given resources to attain our human aspirations. Stewardship in the context of lifelong learning can facilitate the learner’s self-actualization who is by nature intellectually gifted.

ASSESSMENT
PROCESS

As recommended by the research conducted by the University of Melbourne, our assessment highlights students' understanding of concepts and acquisition of skills rather than the mere accumulation of knowledge. Results of assessment are communicated to learners and parents.

TOOLS

Our assessment is based on multiple information sources (e.g. pretests, written tests, portfolios, and works in progress, teacher observation, and conversation). We also use verbal or written feedback to emphasize strengths, identify challenges, and point students to the next steps.

AWARDS & RECOGNITION

We value our students' hard work, genuine love for learning and passion for excellence. We recognize their outstanding performance and achievement in academics, leadership, and social responsibility, among other aspects of progress and development.
