Teaching approach of the school

WSS aims to meet the learning needs of each student. WSS aims to ensure that students are able to be independent, self-confident, inquisitive & life-long learners, with the skills & attitude to meet the challenges of a fast-changing world. Learning needs are identified and organised so that what is learned is meaningful for the students. Students are encouraged to respond and work effectively with others. They need to be supported in their learning and to take on responsibility for their learning. They learn best when they are confident in their abilities and have a sense of personal worth. The development of these qualities is strongly influenced by the quality of the relationships between students, home and teachers, and by the extent to which students feel a valued & listened-to member of their school.
