Pedagogy and Approach
Canberra Primary School adopts a formative approach to assessment by using bite-sized assessments to scaffold learning, provide specific feedback to improve learning and make assessment less stressful for pupils.
Programmes and Events
Across the three faculties, there are differentiated programmes catering to the learners of different abilities. These programmes provide additional support for acquiring fundamental numerical skills and thinking creatively. School-wide initiatives are in place to make Mathematics learning authentic and meaningful in everyday life.
In today’s complex environment, making informed and responsible decisions on the use of money is crucial for one’s personal well-being and the community. The school’s Financial Literacy programme aims to create an awareness on the basic Financial Literacy concepts: Save, Spend, Manage and Share. These concepts are infused pervasively into the curriculum to inculcate in pupils the skill of being prudent about the use of monies.
