Lower Primary At HKIS
Students are engaged, asking questions and sharing their ideas. They are deeply involved as readers and writers, developing their craft and thinking, as they move through the continuum of literacy. The development of the children’s social-emotional, cognitive, motor and oral language skills are crucial to building the foundation of learning. Play is as important as literacy in our school.
