English as an Additional Language
For many of our students, English is another language and not their native language. Therefore we place a strong emphasis on our EAL (English as an Additional Language) programme throughout the grade levels, addressing the needs of non-native English speakers in accordance with their social, emotional and academic development.
At all levels, the programme aims to provide continuity of instruction and develop communicative competence. Every effort is made to coordinate with classroom teachers and to integrate class content areas into the EAL programme. To adequately address the different needs of Junior and Secondary School students, an EAL department exists in both sections of the school. The departments work closely together to ensure continuity and progression from P3 up to grade 10.
