Pupils are currently being engaged in activities that develop their skills in:

  • Communication
  • Application of number
  • Information technology
  • Working with others
  • Improving own learning and performance
  • Problem-solving
  • Critical thinking
  • Reasoning
  • Enquiry
  • Creative-writing
  • Evaluation

 

Virtual School (VS)
The Virtual School project is inculcating enquiring minds and exposing them to incredible discoveries through guided and independent online research. This cutting-edge skill will always give them a headstart in the 21st century world. The mid-trimester’s VS assignment could be accessed by Thursday, 21st February, 2013. We appeal to parents to make time out of their busy schedules to assist their wards with this interesting task.
