Learning @ FLAG - Introduction

Learning @ FLAG

Towards a more creative and effective learning

Children must learn and experience their knowledge, and not be taught. This education belief demands a hands-on approach, where children are encouraged to be creative, take action and provide service to the society. At FLAG, more is learnt outside the classroom than within it through field trips, real case studies, CAS camps, community and service projects and an enriching x-tra curricular program.

Along these guidelines, children are exposed to various concepts, ideas and thoughts; conduct their own research on given subjects across a pre-determined period, and work on real problems. Through these real projects, the young minds learn to think practically, and creatively; looking for solutions that can be implemented.

The curriculum builds on the close relationship between learning and assessment, and provides clear learning outcomes against which students' progress can be measured. The primary purpose of school-based assessment is to improve student's learning and the quality of learning programs. It also provides feedback to parents and students and monitoring of overall educational standards. Assessment also identifies learning needs so that resources can be effectively targeted. A range of assessment strategies are used, including norm-based, criterion-based, peer assessment and work-related assessment.

Our students are well-schooled to make an effortless transition into other international schools or return to their own national systems.
