Programs

Continuous Assessment

  • Weekly Tests — Weekly tests are conducted every Friday between 08:00 hours and 11:00 hours.
  • Mid-Term Tests — Mid-term tests are conducted in the second month of the term.
  • End of Term Tests — End of term tests are usually in the week before the final week of the term.

Physical Education & Sports

Every Friday after break is time for PE. All pupils are to be dressed in school-approved PE attire. Other extracurricular activities such as video shows, songs, plays and other children info- and edutainment are regularly conducted on Tuesdays and Thursdays to encourage children to easily and freely interact and exercise.

Educational Tours / Field Trips

Dates for field trips are communicated to parents at the beginning of every term. These usually take place in Term 2.

Teacher-Parent Interactions

Communication Books are a key element in enhancing communication between teachers and parents. These are used to check the progress of each child and they are sent to parents twice a month. In the absence of communication books, parents may write, for the attention of teachers and the school administration, any pressing issue concerning their children performance or conduct in the homework.

Careers' Day

On Careers Day, pupils are asked to come dressed in attire symbolizing their career wishes. For example, if a child wishes to become a doctor when he/she grows up they come dressed as a doctor on this day. There are motivational career talks from notable professionals/personalities in society; i.e. a doctor, a nurse, a businessman, lawyer and a few others who speak to the children about their dream careers. We urge our parents to allow the children to select a career of their choice.

Homework

Class teachers have been asked to issue homework on a daily basis to the children. Parents need to check books of their children to ensure that this is the case.

Reading Club

In order to encourage children to read widely and develop and sustain a culture of reading, the School gives out reading books and monitors the children in their reading. This is done on a monthly basis.

Other Activities

It is well known that All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy. We believe that allowing your child to get involved in extracurricular activities at school is a wise choice, and it can be very important in helping them to develop many working skills, people skills, and more.
