We were delighted to meet Year 1 to Year 6 parents in our Morning Tea with the Principal this Wednesday. The morning tea meeting has been a tradition for our principal Mr.Chan to communicate with parents for years. Although Mr. Chan usually sees many of the parents during the morning drop off, the morning tea session provides an opportunity for in-depth discussion and communication.
During the meeting, the principals talked about HWA's educational philosophy and what makes HWA different from other international schools. The parents praised HWA’s efforts in teaching and spoke highly of Mr. Tan (Grade 6 teacher) and Ms. Lu (Grade 1 teacher), they also show their appreciation to the nursery class teachers who are most caring and look after the children like their own.
The principal and parents share their opinions on some of the issues:
• The Vice Principal Mr. Mak explained the purpose of splitting the G1 class into two classes and the placement of every child. It was taken with great consideration of the level difference between the two languages (Chinese and English) and to fulfill the learning needs of the children.
• The school has increased the budget for the teacher’s professional development. This will support the teachers to improve and upgrade their teaching skills.
• Feedback about supporting Chinese-speaking student to improve their English.
• Parents’ advice on areas of improvement in the school.
We appreciate the valuable advice from all the parents and we endeavour to continuously improve and provide the best bilingual and bicultural international education in Singapore.
