A Strong Foundation for Academic & Personal Success.

In Primary School, hands-on experiential learning, investigative work and field trips are a core component of daily life, meshed together with continuous development of students’ different character strengths.

Trips to Ecoventure, iFly, Green Planet are common along with other venues that focus on our STEAM Learning pedagogy. Students participate in diverse co-curricular, sport and enrichment activities, which develop their skills and interests, and shape their personalities.
