Primary School education is founded on the vision and educational model for the College. The Huili values and identity shape the learning journey experienced by pupils, whilst the themes of bilingualism and Chinese culture and heritage are central to the way the curriculum has been designed.
Learning in Primary School is designed to build upon the experience in the early years phase.
We know that learning is richest when it is meaningful and coherent. The Primary School curriculum is designed to ensure that there is a strong connection across all areas of learning. Pupils learning in an immersive linguistic context, so that it occurs both in Chinese and English. However, the learning is connected so language acquisition is complimentary. This is achieved by using the Chinese National Curriculum as a rigorous framework and weaving into this the very best bilingual and primary practices that make it a truly Huili experience.
Pupils will study the required local curriculum but set to the very highest standards nationally and internationally.
As pupils move through primary school, learning moves away from the nurturing environment of the class teachers in grades 1 to 3 and increasing provides greater exposure to subject specialists so that the foundations are established for the Junior High phase of education.
All pupils will have the opportunity to access enhanced educational experiences through Prep and Co-Curriculum Activities (CCAs). For the older pupils in the Primary school, prep is an opportunity within the day when pupils can receive personalised individual learning opportunities that are designed to stretch and meet pupils needs. CCAs are a core component of life at Huili. They are central to our educational model and how we are able to realise our vision for a truly holistic education in which a wide range of aptitudes are developed through access to a plethora of educational experiences from the performing and visual arts, to sports, cultural classes and many more.
Pupils in the Primary School receive an education that is based on the Huili values and will be inspired, intellectual, independent, individual and inclusive. There are prepared to thrive in Junior High school.
