Describe your school's approach to education and teaching?

We have enhanced our curriculum with a future-focused educational philosophy - ‘Cre8tors-in-Action’. This philosophy supports the delivery of learning through the International Primary Curriculum (IPC) and Cambridge International Curriculum.

Our future-focused curriculum supports our unique Cre8tors-in-Action© educational philosophy aimed to develop Global Citizens who have the following 8 core competencies:

• Construction and Design
• Respecting the environment
• Entrepreneurial Spirit
• Active Citizenship
• Teamwork and Partnership
• Original ideas
• Recognising issues
• Service leadership

The Cambridge Primary English, Mathematics and Science curriculum have provided our students the foundation learning in literacy, numeracy and science. The newly implemented International Primary Curriculum (IPC) further extends our vision to develop The Grange ‘Cre8tors’ by providing the opportunity for students to engage in different multi-disciplinary thematic Units of Learning designed to appeal to their interests and help them to learn more about the world around them. This enables them to see the big picture of their learning, make connections across different subjects, and see topics and issues in the world from multiple perspectives. The ultimate goal is to help students develop a growing sense of global citizenship.

Physical education and sport is an important aspect of a healthy lifestyle. How does your school ensure children engage in physical activity?

We have a PE program – ‘Personal Social Physical Education (PSPE)’. It focuses on an individual’s well-being and covers a variety of topics related to personal development, social growth and physical activities. The curriculum is organised around 4 strands of learning: Self-Awareness, Social Interaction, Active Living and Cre8tors-in-Action.

Does the school have cafeteria facilities for the students?

No, students will have to pack their own lunch and snack to school. This is to cater for their individual dietary and cultural needs.

What would be the amount spent by a student for their lunchtime meal?

There is one lunch break and snack break. Students will have a 30mins lunch break and a 20mins snack break.

What is the starting and finishing time of your school day?

10am - 4:30pm

Is there a school uniform?

Yes.

What is your medium of instruction?

English.

Which other languages are taught?

Mandarin as a Foreign Language.
Japanese as a Mother Tongue.
English as an Additional Language.

Do you offer EAL or TEFL support for those students where English is not their first language?

We do not offer EAL but we offer Additional English language classes. This is to provide non-native English language learners with more focused time to develop their English language skills. These additional four sessions per week enable learners to get sheltered immersion time where the teacher can work on helping them experience progress and success with the basic of the language, through a more focused small group environment and higher teacher attention.
