One community, a world of difference

26 March 2018

Greetings to all and, thank you for tuning in to read this humble expression.
It has been an exciting AY2017/28 and we are now approaching the final, almost end of semester two.

Indeed, change is constant with the big economy and just as an educational body, tuning our young learners to adapt in the future world is the challenge in the mind of most school’s policy and curriculum designers.
Better education is the new buzzword and life long learning follows suit, in tandem with the transformation that takes place in the work environment. In the future, our students who enter the workforce will face the prospect of changing job twice as often as we do now, it will become the new norm.
So, being able to adapt, survive and adapt as believing that life will be rosy once the student gets that degree will be bombarded with even more new questions, alternatives are aplenty, is it necessary to get that degree? One may ask.
Classroom transformation carries heavy weight and teachers role in the inquiry world of learning that HWA adopts must take the responsibility to transfer learning knowledge to our students.
Students are led to ask, questions that never been asked, there should not be limiting the process of asking, raising and provoking the child to ask critically and lead them to analysis to understand and evaluate facts is the inculcating of learning and it never stops.
Curating takes place in classrooms, the power of yet must be part of a continuous journey to discover, so more enterprising solutions can be found, more can be learned.
HWA seeks to improve and believe that a rigorous education that encourages new questions and newer answers by our students so they become adaptable to the new world, and their future.
HWA looks for improvement, curriculum refreshes to take learning to another level. Children must learn to face risks that will help prepare them for life’s challenges.
We encourage parents to be involved in the learning process, the mini-tests, quiz, projects, presentations in both languages and many more are part of the assessment to scaffold our children’s development and learning in the Inquiry world. Do enforce the process at home, support the process, as parents and HWA journey to build the foundation of knowledge in our kids, so as to empower breakthrough of the young minds.
Thank You.
Clarissa Lim, Principal
 
 
校长寄语:
大家好!感谢各位浏览阅读。2017-2028学年是激动人心的一年,现在已接近年终,即将进入第二学期的期末。
世界经济瞬息万变。作为一个教育机构,要为学生做好准备,使他们适应未来的世界。这也是大多数学校政策和课程设计者心中的挑战。
更好的教育是新的流行语,终身学习的内容也会随着工作环境中的转变而变化。未来我们的学生进入职场,加入劳动大军将面临更加频繁更换工作的前景,频繁程度是今天的两倍。
因此,认为学生一旦获得学位,就能够适应和生存,生活会变得更加美好的这种想法在现实中被质疑,面临很多新问题,选择也很多。有人可能会问是否有必要获得一个学位?
在HWA课堂教学改革是一项重要任务,教师在探究式学习过程中发挥着重要的作用,确保将知识传授给学生。
启发引导学生发问,提出他们从未问过的问题,不加任何限制。培养孩子批判性地探究,并引导他们分析、理解和评估事实的过程就是永不止步的学习。
通过在课堂上进行策划展示,培养学生不断发现问题,并找到更多切实可行的解决方案的能力,从而学到更多知识。
HWA致力于提高教育水平和进行严谨的教育,鼓励我们的学生提出新的问题和探寻更新的答案,以便他们适应新的世界和他们的未来。
HWA寻求改进,更新课程,以将学习提升到另一个层次。孩子们必须学会面对风险,以帮助他们应对生活中的挑战。
我们鼓励家长参与学生的学习过程,各种测验、专题作业 ,双语演讲表达等都是评估学生学习的一部分,有助于学生在探究中的学习与技能的发展。请家长在家里帮助学生强化并支持这个过程,家长和HWA共同努力,为我们的孩子打下牢固的知识基础,从而增强他们的探究能力。
谢谢。
