Learning Skills

We look for pupils to learn knowledge, skills and values within school. All three parts take place within lessons.

Knowledge refers to learning concepts, principles and information regarding a particular subject(s) by a person through books, media, encyclopaedia, academic institutions and other sources.

Skill refers to the ability to develop knowledge and understanding, or using information and applying it in a context, and real-life situation to get a desired result.

Values are the ways of interacting and behaving by the person within a community. Indeed, the extent of the use of the values can define the community itself.
