ACADEMICS

Chinese Academy offers a child-centered primary school education in a nurturing and supportive learning environment where children are encouraged to become independent learners. 

Through the provision of effective bi-lingual learning experiences both inside and outside of the classroom, students’ intrinsic motivation for learning will be promoted and their individual potential will be developed.

 

TEACHING AND LEARNING

Be relevant to life

Students will explore the world around them; they will engage in projects and higher order problem-solving tasks that are relevant to real-life situations.

 

Be differentiated

Each student is unique and has his/her own preferences in learning; differentiation is done through offering options in content and process that cater to each student’s interests and abilities.

 

Encourage self-expression and wide exposure

Students are encouraged to communicate and collaborate through interactive learning tasks. They will have opportunities to explore a wide range of tasks across different disciplines.

Be supportive

The school provides a stimulating environment with an abundance of learning aids, multimedia resources and information technology; school staff work closely with parents to facilitate students’ learning.

Be achieved through intrinsic motivation

Children are endowed with an intrinsic curiosity about the world around them; they will be encouraged to formulate questions, find answers and pursue further investigations on their own.

 

Be culturally diverse

Students develop global perspectives while being immersed in Chinese culture through continuous exposure to rich traditions from around the world.

 

Motivation and Achievement

Chinese Academy takes the approach of continuous assessment where in-depth formative and summative assessment on students’ growth and learning are carried out through daily school life. Information collected provides useful reference for teachers and parents in determining educational and intervention strategies.

Assessment takes many forms including anecdotal records, checklists, observations and portfolio. Timely, specific feedback coupled with constructive advice encourages students to set realistic goals for next steps.

Regular testing and monitoring will take place using standardised assessment. Results, in addition to individual goal-setting, will be analysed for planning to meet individual pupil’s needs.
