Extra Lessons are not to discriminate weak students or to lower their self-esteem. The ultimate goal of Extra Lessons is to help students catch up with the lessons that they struggle with / boosting their confidence so that they eventually perform well in regular class.
2. Study Time : Study Time is another After School Programme (ASP) of our school. Study Time is every day, Monday to Friday from 3:45-4:45. The idea behind Study Time is similar to After School Detention. However, unlike Detention, the main objective of Study Time is not to punish students. This is a time for students to study, do their homework, and catch up with whatever school work the students have missed. Who recommends students for Study Time?
- Subject Teachers and Homeroom Teachers.
Who goes to Study Time?
- Students who have been late on three consecutive occasions.
- Students who have failed to do their homework twice in any subject.
- Students who have shown unacceptable behavior such as fighting, bullying, disrespect to teachers, breaking school property and others.
What do students do in Study Time?
- Do their homework.
- Study their lessons.
- Finish any incomplete classwork or projects.
- Read a book.
What about bus service and informing parents? Students who have to stay for Study Time will not have School Bus Service to bring them home on that day. The school secretary calls the parents of the students to inform them about the Study Time of their child, the reasons why they were sent to Study Time, and that the parents have to pick up their child at 4:45. If the parents are not available to pick up their child, arrangements can be made to move the Study Time to another day when the parents can pick up their child from school after Study Time. Study Time is a perfect opportunity for students to be productive after school
3. English Language Support (ELS) :
The English Language Support (ELS) is for students who come to our school with zero or beginner level of English. Who goes to English Language Support?
- Students who speak zero or beginner level of English.
- Students who are newly enrolled in our school but do not have the level of English proficiency of the grade they are in.
How does English Language Support work? There are mainly two types of English Language Support provided by our school:
1. Pull Out Support
Students are withdrawn from their mainstream English classes for all or part of the week by an English language teacher. English is taught at the level of the student until they gain sufficient English language skills to re-enter mainstream English classes. Usually these Pull Out Support classes consist of one or two students,enabling English language learning to be tailored to the needs of the students.
2. In Class Support
Students study in mainstream English classes but they are given additional homework to improve their English proficiency. Students who are receiving In Class Support also take a different level of classwork compared to the other students in the mainstream class. These students are observed closely if they can improve their level of English while studying in mainstream English classes. Our school follows the educational idea of “No Child Left Behind”. We try our best to help all students with their studies whether they are new in our school or they are weak in their lessons. All our teachers extend a helping hand to make sure students are not left behind.
