Methodist Girls' School (Primary)
How do Methodist Girls School Give Subject Knowledge To Students?
MGS requested increased autonomy from the Ministry of Education (MOE) a century after its founding to offer quality education for its girls; the MOE countered with a proposal for independence. As a result, the Secondary school became independent in January 1989, and the entire Methodist Girls’ School (Primary) continued to operate in a single session for the benefit of all students. The benefits of independence provided a new incentive for the pursuit of greatness.
Through creative language, expression hopes to develop the MGS girl into a self-directed learner and sympathetic communicator. Methodist Girls’ School (Primary) aim that by teaching and learning the English language at MGS, students will become:
- Empathetic communicators have the attitudes, dispositions, and skills to actively listen to many points of view and use language creatively and meaningfully to contribute to the community.
- Discerning readers are well-versed in use of information and can tell fact from fiction by critically digesting and assessing data based on the purpose, audience, context, and culture.
- Creative Inquirers who investigate and evaluate real-world situations and points of view, data from a variety of print, non-print, and digital network sources
The Science Curriculum Framework strives to instil in our students a spirit of scientific curiosity and solid scientific foundations that will enable them to participate effectively in a technologically driven world.
Students will gain experience in the following areas as a result of the Primary Science Syllabus:
- Learning fundamental scientific principles can better understand themselves and the world around them.
- Develop scientific inquiry skills, dispositions, and attitudes.
- Make appropriate decisions using scientific principles and skills.
- Recognise the impact of science on people and the environment.
The Mother Tongue Curriculum emphasises efficient communication by teaching pupils the essentials of language learning, such as listening, reading, writing, and speaking. We use a customise and learner-centred approach in MTL teaching to accommodate our students’ various learning requirements and interests. Students who are skilled in their MTL and demonstrate a significant interest in it are offered Higher Mother Tongue (HMT) in Primary 5, which allows them to study MTL at a higher level.
The Mother Tongue Support Program is also used in Primary 3 and 4 to provide a more structured and scaffolded learning environment for kids who require a more individualised approach to MTL learning. The MTL can only learn if you are culturally informed.
Every girl should be physically literate, strive for excellence and lead a healthy lifestyle. We think that a high-quality Health & Physical Education curriculum is an aspect of every girl’s education at MGS since it addresses a child’s physical, social, emotional, and cognitive development.
The Health & Physical Education department’s mission is to encourage our girls to be physically active and live a healthy lifestyle by:
- Movement skills, knowledge, competence, and attitude to participate in and excel in physical activities.
- provision of diverse and well-balanced entertainment and competitive sports to thrive in
