Teaching & Learning

A wide variety of teaching and learning strategies are used to engage students actively in their learning:

  • experiential learning;
  • problem-based learning;
  • differentiated instruction;
  • cooperative learning and group work;
  • use of ICT – the use of iMac for music, art and graphic design; data-loggers for geography and science, e-platforms for knowledge forums;
  • inquiry-based approach in the humanities and sciences (through sources and real world cases); and
  • presentations, debates and role plays.


Different modes of assessment are used to evaluate students’ learning:

  • traditional pen-and-paper tests;
  • self- and peer assessments;
  • investigative projects;
  • rubric assessments;
  • performance tasks;
  • journaling;
  • portfolios; and
  • International Schools’ Assessment (ISA)


Varied assessments are used to enhance higher-order thinking skills in students and promote independent learning. Students will also further develop their computer skills and be suitably prepared for life in the digital age.
