Information Technology (IT)
There has been a rapid increase in the use of computers for learning for children. We recognize the need to expose children to computers as early as possible so as to equip them with the knowledge and skills to use a computer to enrich their education.
We are in the process of reforming our IT program and are integrating the ICT standards of the University of Cambridge into our curriculum. We will provide more information on this in due course.
Through stories, songs and games, your child will learn about numbers and the concepts of size, shape and weight and develop spatial awareness. They will be encouraged to develop problem solving skills and participate in simple scientific experiments to promote inquiry and discovery.
Since 2007, we encourage our children every year to take the Stanford Achievement Tests (10th edition), whereby our students are measured against candidates of all ages across the United States . We are very proud that more than 80 of our children matched the achievements of grade 2 children. It is for this reason that more than 100 of our children were enrolled into Stanford University 's Education Program for Gifted Youth, a math enrichment initiative for motivated, talented and high achieving students all around the world.

We regard science as a very important part of a child's education as it provides the bridge for a better understanding of mathematics, nature and how things are connected to one another. The children will explore areas such as floating, sinking, sound and light, through simple practical experiments.
We understand that activities which happen outside lesson times enrich children's learning and make up a significant part of the curriculum. These informal activities included playtimes, visits to places of interest, social events, taking part in school production or events.
It is for this reason that we are integrating the standards embodied in the CREST Star Investigators scheme into our science curriculum. The CREST awards scheme encourages children to discuss, solve problems and share experiences while investigating scientific phenomena through practical investigations. The CREST awards is administered by the British Association for the Advancement of Science, a learned society established in 1831 to promote the development of science.
