Selecting the right primary schooling for your child is an important consideration for any parent. It is in this nascent phase that school-going children develop exponentially. The role of primary education is to ensure the broad-based development of pupils. This means ensuring that all pupils are able to develop their cognitive, social, emotional, cultural and physical skills to the best of their abilities, preparing them for their further school career.
Attending a good primary school has more impact on children’s academic progress than their family background, according to the British Institute of Education, where researchers determined that a high quality pre-school followed by an academically effective primary school gives children’s development a significant boost.
In 2015 Woodlands International College implemented a progressive initiative to incorporate what was formerly the final year of the Junior College (Grade 7) into the Senior College fold, a departure from traditional convention.
The Junior College accordingly comprises the following Grades:
Junior Primary – Grade 1-3
Middle Primary – Grade 4-6
Having carefully assessed the ramifications of this restructuring, the benefits afforded to both the Junior College and the Senior College are significant: for the Junior College, the Grade 6 students are able to assume the responsibilities and duties of being Prefects earlier than usual, allowing them to explore and develop their leadership talents in preparation for their time in Senior College.
