A learning community
The school is a learning community in which everyone, including the principals, teachers, students and parents, makes progress together. Only when teachers embrace the concept of life-long learning can we expect students to do the same.
A good role model
A good teacher is not necessarily one with high qualifications. A good teacher is one who sets a good example by cooperating with others, is committed to students and listens to them. A good teacher monitors his students’ progress closely and is always in search of a breakthrough in new teaching methodology.
Each teacher must first share the education philosophy of the school before we can build a united team where members learn from and support each other. We adopt a co-tutor system in primary, with our overseas teachers coming from many countries and backgrounds. Our lessons resemble a global village in which teachers team-teach in a cooperative manner, respect each other’s skills and methods, and create a harmonious learning atmosphere. About 50 % of the lessons in primary are taught by two teachers. This is done so that students’ needs can be met and teachers can learn to cooperate with one another.
