Social, emotional and life skills development

Personality Development and Life Skill Curriculum is integrated in almost every single daily activity of students. It is important that children develop an awareness of their own selves, the knowledge and skills needed in order to take care of themselves such as health, personal hygiene, nutrition and most important, safety. A positive attitude towards self-identity, social values and morality of a child is simultaneously shaped with the development of effective social and communication skills.

Self-serving, self-educating, researching, self-controlling skills, and interpersonal skills (leadership, teamwork, public speaking skills, etc.) are formed and developed through studying, playing activities at school.
