Last December 3, 2016, our school successfully held the first PTC. Conferences focused on learning, although the child’s behavioral and social development also had been discussed. Our parents heared feedback about their child’s progress and areas of need. Most parents were happy and satisfied of the teachers’ effort of providing quality education to their children. They are looking forward to meet them again in the next PTC on March 17, 2017 on the last day of our STEM Exhibition.Fredfort is committed to provide professional development to all teachers by inviting IB recommended workshop leader to train our teachers and staff. Last December 7-9, teachers and staff successfully attended the category 1 workshop on “Making PYP Happen in the classroom” We also invest on the quality of our teaching and learning to make sure that Fredfort provides the standard education aligned with the International Baccalaureate Organization.Student Services
EAL teachers assess students’ needs in order to determine the type and level of support required. Students are assessed using a developmental language continuum. When students have reached a standard of competence (according to the exit criteria in the continuum) that allows them to participate actively in their homeroom classrooms, they are exited from the EAL pullout programme, and their parents receive a letter notifying them that their child has been exited. This decision is made in consultation with the Homeroom teacher. The student’s progress in the mainstream classroom is monitored and further EAL support is available as required.
