We also teach the French language as a second language starting from Grade 1.

We have a sophisticated computer network system that allows our teachers to access the best resources to enrich and complement the learning experience, but never to replace the nurture and interaction between teacher and student.

Field trips which include skiing, picnics, visits to parks, recreational places, beaches and museums.
Why do you teach the Bible in your school?
The Bible reveals God, who is the Creator of the universe and all that is in it. He is also the giver of life, there is no life apart from Him. When students study the revelation of God, they can understand themselves, the world around them and their place in it. This enables them to reach their full potential by being transformed into the people that God intends them to be.
It is not our desire to change anyone's religion. We respect all religions and so encourage people to stay in their own religious group. Here are some things for you to consider regarding the Bible:
- The Bible relates all knowledge to God, the origin of all things. This fact alone provides context in which to place new information that we learn.
- The Bible provides a way for us to love God, ourselves, and others. It becomes the foundation on which our classroom instruction and interaction is built.
- The Bible shows us that God loves us, and we need love, all of us. His love fills the emptiness in our hearts and we want our students to be filled with it.
- The Bible shows us the meaning of life and prepares us for eternity. It helps us set our life-goals in a way that we take into consideration all seasons of life and even prepares us for death.
- The Bible transforms our hearts and minds and defends us against sin and immorality, weapons that destroy many lives. Pornography and drug abuse are ravaging our youth and we need to teach them how to deal with these deadly habits. The Bible does that as it equips us for a life of godliness.
What is a transformational classroom?
The goal of the classroom is never just to relay information that students must memorize or regurgitate, but it is rather to engage the student in active learning set in a nurturing environment that encourages their growth and transformation intellectually, emotionally, spiritually and physically.
