Our Beliefs & Values

We believe in equipping the essential skills in our learners in order to develop a lifelong learner in them.
Our learners will learn through inquiry and participate in inquiry-based lessons that encourage them to ask and seek answers to questions. Learners are encouraged to reflect on their learning. We also encourage them to be life-long learners as they seek to make sense of the world around them.
