PRIMARY SCHOOL

About

At the Primary school level, we place emphasis in providing an enabling environment to raise the total child whereby they can integrate properly after primary education into Senior School. Pupils are exposed to a rich and inspiring curriculum running from year 1 to year 6 level and enables every child fulfill their potential to the highest possible standard.

Learning for us is exciting, creative, interesting and fun and the diverse needs of children are cared for in the form of one-to- one interactions, the input of expertise and the provision of adequate resources, equipment and very experienced teaching and non-teaching staff.

Our happy child – happy teacher initiative helps our children with an open mind to learn all the exciting things and subjects taught at school. This is why our school atmosphere is welcoming, energetic and with a high ethos for excellent moral standards.

At Queensland, it is very vital that parents play a crucial role in helping and supporting their child’s education, that is, paying school fees and other dues as and when due, ensuring that your child has all necessary equipment needed and monitoring home assignments.

Academics

Homework:

Homework at our school is activity based and hands-on learning. Therefore, it is a very important tool in assessing your child’s level of understanding taught topics. Encouraging your child with homework is playing a positive role in complementing and supporting our work at the school in educating your child.

Homework is very important to us. For pupils who fail to do homework, they are placed in after school homework detention at a FEE where they must finish off homework not done for the day before going home. Parents whose children fall in this category will be notified earlier in the day to stay back until their child is done with completing homework.

Curriculum:

We run a blended curriculum which consists of an international content and the four core subjects: Literacy, Numeracy, Science and ICT and with other foundational subjects including Music and Creative Arts as well as French Language and Reasoning.All core subjects at Queensland are based on the International Cambridge curriculum. All subjects are taught using the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) based approach and all school work is activity based learning.

From the pre-school, our children are able to improve on their creativity and imaginative skills by exposing them to STEM BASED learning approach which is not limiting to the career paths they choose to pursue.
