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.
