School Philosophy, Culture, and Ethos:
After six years of school, we want our Yumin Primary School students to have a champion mentality and the ‘wings and roots’ for 21st-century learning and life. By MOE DOE and 21st CC, we have identified three student outcomes that we feel will provide our Champions with the information, skills, and values they will need in the future:
- Self-assured and effective communicators
- Thinkers who are both critical and creative
- Citizens who are kind and generous
All of our pupils receive a complete and balanced education from the school. Yumin Primary students get nurtured in five aspects of student development: cognitive, social and moral, morale, aesthetics and physical, leadership, and innovation. We want our students to develop into self-assured individuals, self-directed learners, caring citizens, and active contributors by methodically equipping them with 21st Century skills. All employees share this aim and obligation.
The School’s Beliefs All pupils want to learn and are capable of learning, even if they study in various ways. The foundations for growth are having high expectations of our students and providing them with opportunities and assistance. Excellent student discipline (in learning and conduct) aids in the quality of teamwork and collaboration teaching and learning, and accomplish discipline aids in the quality of teamwork and collaboration teaching and learning.
