At Boneo Primary School, our curriculum is an integral part of what we try to achieve. We have tailored our curriculum to ensure that we can provide the best experience for our students. Our curriculum is in line with the required standard provided by the educational board. This is to ensure that our students are not left out of the mix.
Our impressive curriculum is as follows:
This is our literacy program. We have developed this program in line with the Professional Learning Communities approach towards learning and teaching. In the same vein, we implement this program considering this approach.
As such, our teachers ensure that they create clear individual goals that the student must achieve. Similarly, the teachers consider the students’ individual needs to ensure that they can best decide what the student needs to learn. This is an integral part of the whole learning process across all levels.
