    International Education

    Our daily living can hardly be separated from the global development nowadays. Therefore we aim to nurture our students into caring global citizens.

    Students are taught to develop awareness to international issues, encouraged to communicate with international people and taught to care for the need of the poor population through morning and weekly assemblies, topical projects, communication with non-local bodies and overseas study tours.

    Teachers are exposed to good education systems and practices of the other parts of the world through a number of educational visits.

    Global Citizenship Module

    The modular curricular are part and parcel of our official curricular. They serve to promote better-balanced student development in respect to their physical, mental and social growth. Our modular design provides our students with a broad and balanced learning experience from which a holistic development is to be expected.

    The objectives of the P.6 module are to develop students’ full potentials through an inspiring, challenging and open trans-disciplinary inquiry unit, and to develop learners’ global citizenship.

    STEAM –Problem-based curriculum

    P1 STEAM Problem-Based Learning

    At KYS, play is an important part of students’ school lives. In each school day, students have an hour play time, including the first recess and the second recess after lunch. However, the school campus is not very big and there is not much space for free movement for all students at the same time.

    The problem is: “How can we design games for KYS students that will not occupy much space and allow enough free movement?” In a group of two or three students, think about and design creative games by using the “Engineering Design Process”. Working steps are shown in the diagrams below:

    The Learning Process

  • Define the problem: design games that allow students more physical movement without taking up much space
  • Identify what’s needed to solve the problem: look into the space that is available at KYS campus such as the playground, Site C, corridor, IA Centre & roof garden etc
  • Plan solution: brainstorm in group and give out creative ideas solving the problem
  • Make a model: use the engineering design process, work out the idea by building a prototype and make a model
  • Test the model: use the model for testing and evaluation
  • Reflect and redesign: share in class for improvement, then redesign the model and create the final product
  • Share results: exhibit the final product in the STEAM Fair
