Because the child is at the centre of everything we do, we implement a learner-centered approach to place student interests on top. We do that by acknowledging their needs as a priority in the learning experience.
The pedagogical methods used are wide-ranging for students on different learning levels just so we are fully aligned with the learner-centred approach that encompasses specific programmes that enhance the learning process.
Kindergarten and Lower Primary and, Upper Primary and Lower Secondary:
Fugee School students are often grouped into pairs or small groups and challenged to complete a task related to a specific subject. This develops teamwork, communication and leadership skills.
Fugee students do a lot of hands-on activities in the classroom. They engage in the learning stage and experiment with trial and error, learn from their mistakes, and understand the potential gaps between theory and practice.
The teacher meets with each student to discuss their difficulties, successes, and interests. Lessons and activities will then be tailored to the specific student’s strengths and interests to help them thrive.
The student-centered learning system has been introduced in Fugee School in the academic year 2019-2020. It involves a dynamic classroom approach in which the students acquire a deeper knowledge through active exploration of real-world challenges and problems. Our upper primary and secondary students are required to submit 3 projects each academic year (one per term).
Fugee students experience transformative learning in a fun, inclusive and nurturing environment. Through a holistic and student-centered approach, we implement a problem-based learning (PBL) model to teach students to solve complex real-world problems.
In the PBL process, students are given the opportunities to develop creative and critical thinking, essential soft skills, effective collaboration and versatile communication to build strong levels of competency. Through a comprehensive vehicle of learning, students are qualified to become life-long learners in order to build meaningful and purpose-driven futures.
