Message from the Headmaster
One day a teacher gave a test to his students. He gave them an A4 size page that carried only a black dot; he gave them as the only instruction: describe what they see. Each one wrote a paragraph about the black dot. When the results were delivered, the teacher informed them that they had all disapproved, because the 95% of their essay only touched 2% of the page. They had seen a phenomenon, but not its context.
Everything has a context and we should all see the context, the big picture, this is one of the reasons why we have chosen the Fieldwork Education curriculum. The school offers the IEYC programs for Early Years, IPC for primary and IMYC for grades 6, 7 and 8. The same ones that are excellent programs and that teach students to see THE BIG PICTURE in what they are studying, not just focus in the obvious, since many times the most interesting part is not in this.
Our school is the first to implement the British curriculum of Fieldwork, which articulates English education with “formative work”, from Early Years to pre-university level.
