Adoption of experiential learning

In all stages, experiential learning will be adopted, including

  • Hands-on learning
  • Arts-integrated and sports-integrated education,
  • Story-telling-based pedagogy, and
  • Exploring inter-relations of various subjects.

A higher focus will be given to achieving learning outcomes by shifting classroom teaching towards competency-based education rather than completion of syllabus.
Assessment tools will also be aligned with the learning outcomes and capabilities to be achieved in each subject for a given class.
