ICT-INFUSED INQUIRY-DRIVEN CURRICULUM
At LA, we use technology as a tool for improving students' learning and communication with teachers. “The 1:1 Program” requires Year 7 students to purchase their own MacBook. It aims to facilitate ICT-infused curriculum effectively and efficiently.
A HOLISTIC APPROACH
In LA, there are no boundaries in learning. Learning is not confined to classrooms or laboratories. Aiming to ensure our students’ whole-person development, the school strived to foster their innate passion for learning, while encouraging them to explore their interest through a wide range of co-curricular activities. The school organizes different activities in areas like music, sport, visual art and food technology etc. which not only benefit students’ physical and metal well-being, but also instill them the virtues of perseverance and self-discipline.
We also organize Global Classroom activities, which include local and overseas learning tours. They emphasize on learning that cannot be experienced in the classroom.
