The Curriculum of Huamin Primary School

Huamin Primary strives to provide a happy learning environment where kids learn to love to help them achieve their full potential. A child’s development requires learning in a secure and empowering setting. Teachers employ the acronym ‘STAR’ (Sense of Curiosity, Tenacity in Learning, Agile & Flexible, and Responsible) to help pupils overcome problems with a positive attitude in their everyday school lives and experiences as early as Primary 1. It is critical to focus on building these positive learning dispositions in pupils to develop good learning attitudes that will last a lifetime. As a Huamin Primary School, they develop good relationships with parents to foster a caring atmosphere that encourages children to achieve their full potential.
