Is your child having difficulty coping with Literature in secondary school? Literature can be an intimidating subject for many students who are unfamiliar with its demands and rigour. Our Excellence in Literature programme is designed to help lower secondary students understand, appreciate and love Literature.
We invite your child to join us at our FREE Literature Discovery Workshop on 23 Jan 2018 in Thomson Plaza. Your child will be able to pick up some techniques that will make Literature fun and easy to understand!

Let’s make ice-cream in a bag!
Yes, you heard me, homemade ice-cream in a BAG. Baking and cooking with our little tots may lead to a mess in the kitchen, but this fun, mess free and yummy recipe is an enjoyable treat for both you and your child.
But how is making ice-cream in a bag possible? And what is the science behind it?
Our Science Explorers programme uses contextual-based learning methods like the above to help students connect what they learn in their textbooks to what is happening in the real world.

Everyone has their favourite ice-cream flavours. Share them with us in the comments below!
5 WAYS TO ENGAGE YOUR CHILD ON A FAMILY HOLIDAY
Turn the screens off: Put away all phones and electronic devices during meals. Family talk time is essential
Hands on activities: Play family board or card games during free time in hotels
Listen to your child: Plan out activities and trips that they will enjoy, ask them what they want to do during the trip to show that their opinions matter
Learning foreign currency: Educate your child on foreign currency and conversion. Allow them to make an attempt calculating conversion rates
Make a game out of an activity: Who can find the destination the fastest or who can spot the landmark? Actively involve them in the itinerary and schedule (more…)
Alice and Michael are racing to finish making their ice cream for the annual ice-cream making competition. They both finished their ice cream mixes at the same time - whose ice cream do you think will freeze first ?
Did you guess it right? The fact is that the hot ice-cream mix will freeze faster than the cold ice-cream mix, assuming that both Alice and Michael used the same recipe for their ice cream mix.
In the early 1960s, a Tanzanian cookery student discovered that a hot ice cream mix freezes faster than a cold ice cream mix. This effect has been called the “Mpemba effect”, and until today, scientists have not been able to come up with a convincing explanation of why hot liquids freeze faster than cold liquids.
