It is clear that our students prefer to be taught in a physical classroom. It is nice to see their happy faces. Safe distancing and safety measure are being practised. Parents no longer wait in the centre and student numbers per class are usually small.

We do offer remote lessons when students are unable to attend the lessons and some lessons are conducted remotely.

Our star reward system remains very popular with students. They can exchange the stars for prizes.

Do contact us by whatsapp as we can track your enquiry easier and reply to it.

Nordin used 996 balloons to decorate a rectangular field. He placed each balloon, spaced equally from each other, to form the perimeter of the rectangular field. The number of balloons on the length of the field was 4 times the number of balloons placed on the breadth of the field. How many balloons did Nordin place along the length of the rectangular field?

We have started remote lessons on Saturday 28 March.

We have started with the upper primary and secondary students. It has been almost smooth sailing after the students and the teachers got used to Zoom. We will be exploring more tools and introduce more elements in our pedagogy. This will evolve in time.

We do appreciate feedback as to how we can improve the experience.
