Primary School

The Faculty of the junior school believes that children learn best in a nurturing environment, which is safe, joyful and intellectually challenging. Development and academic considerations shape decisions about the curriculum, organisation and day-to-day life throughout school.

At every age level within the first programme, an interdisciplinary approach to teaching and learning is coupled with special consideration for each child's individual interests and development of community responsibility. Positive feedback given to children based on their own efforts, ideas and accomplishments as well as respectful acceptance of a child's feelings, help first programme youngsters to meet challenges with the persistence and optimism necessary to develop competence, confidence and self-esteem.
