Our Signature Programmes


Power of Stories


Power of Stories aims to teach values through stories. Stories can emotionally connect children. It is an involvement of the heart and mind. Lessons will be conducted once per term to build class culture, teach and reinforce values. Parents can support by reading and discussing the stories with their children. Pupils in every level will be reading a book.
