A warm welcome from School Supervisor 校監的話

I Believe To watch our children grow up happily is what we as parents most want to see. However, in the current local education climate, surrounded by a sea of

comparisons and competition from different learning establishments, parents can become lost and confused. It is all too easy for parents to overlook

their original intentions for their child – good parenthood and a happy and effective education. In many cases, the intimate bond between parents and their children is sadly beginning to disappear due to overly demanding

expectations and pressure on both parents and children alike. As a mother of

three, I have always aspired to rise to the challenge of maintaining a positive parenting attitude throughout my professional career.

ABC’s mission focuses on maintaining the bond between parents and their children within an educational environment. We believe that “happy” and

feel how much of our heart and devotion goes into achieving this. As parents,

let us give our Little Ones the best childhood possible. I wholeheartedly hope that with our support, “happiness”, “school work” and “parental bonding” can

Content and Language Integrated Learning (CLIL) approach

With this approach, students are provided with the opportunity

to use their new language skills now, rather than learning them now for use later, nurturing confidence and opening doors on language in a broader range of young learners.

Strong Devotion to Teaching

We believe students learn best from everyday life. Originating

all over the world, teachers share their personal stories with children. According to the teaching themes, teachers bring

to school their family photos, toys and storybooks they used when they were small to share with the children.

Teaching Based on Children’s Ability

Students are assigned to levels based on ability and we adopt small group teaching. Small group teaching allows

every child to be well taken care of by teachers. Every child

starts their educational journey in a level where they are most

comfortable, which match our school philosophy of pressurefree and happy learning.

Encouragement and Appreciation

The learning journey is a lifelong process. ABC hopes every

child falls in love with learning. Teachers use praise and positive

motivation to help children develop a positive learning attitude. This way, they will enjoy the learning process, feel a regular sense of achievement, and finally become a winner in life.
