Nurture the Young with Love’ ‘Strive for Excellence in Education’
‘Join Hands to Bring the Best for Young Children’
Each child is born with unique potential. This deserves to be nurtured and cultivated with the belief that such potential can be fulfilled over the course of time. To achieve the school mission of ‘Education with Love’, St Monica emphasises the importance of collaboration between family and school. Parents and teachers are encouraged to join hands in order to provide an enjoyable learning environment for children. We respect individual differences in children’s development and strive to address their specific needs.
A key learning stage for every child is between the ages of 3 and 6. Children at this stage have huge potential and can be influenced with different ideas. This is a vital time for intellectual and language development, as well as character and moral building. In the light of this, our school has designed a series of learning courses and activities which are compatible with young children’s development. We aim to stimulate their motivation to learn and cultivate their ability to take charge of their own learning. We strive to encourage them to bring out their full potential and to help them develop positive character traits.
We were honoured recently when the English story written by our teachers was listed as one of the education materials recommended by the Standing Committee on Language Education and Research (SCOLAR). The story draws upon everyday life experiences of children to nourish them to use their initiative to learn and improve their concentration. We are greatly encouraged to continue using English storybooks when teaching. An ‘English Audio Self-Learning Corner’ has also been set up in the school lobby to expose children to English in their daily lives. It serves an important role in stimulating children’s English learning.
A further aim of our school is to foster a greater sense of professionalism among teachers. Through the improvement and development of the curricula and environment, we seek to create an increasingly enjoyable learning environment for the children. Our vision is to nurture them to become pillars of society built upon integrity and ability. We seek to develop each child’s self-esteem, confidence, self-love and other positive values.
