Fundamental Years

Primary 1 programmes aim to familiarise your child with the academic and social conditions that are part of Primary school. Learning is informed by a strong sense of interest-building and helping your child to expand his or her awareness of people, places and things that are part of primary school curriculum as well as the wider world around him or her.

Learning mathematical concepts and arithmetic skills should be fun and help your child to cultivate a love for math. Through lesson materials, hands-on activities and performance tasks, your child will also acquire useful life skills such as telling time and counting money. Find out more.
