It was the day that our entire community had been waiting for since starting school online in August. After three weeks of online learning, our Secondary School students from Grade 6 to 12 reunited with their classmates and teachers.

As part of our inclusive, student-centred approach, we know that all learners are at different places in their journey and instruction must be differentiated to meet their individual needs. To do this, our teachers need to determine where students are in their studies, where they have achieved mastery, and how they learn best. That’s where assessment comes in, and nowhere is this more important than during the formative years of Primary School.

Why does a school need a strategy when it has worked so hard already to define its core values?

We are an inclusive school that inspires international mindedness, personal excellence, and creative thinking. Our values are our bedrock and the ultimate test of whether our goals and strategy have a ‘fit’, now and in the future.
