AIKIDO

The Art of Peace

Aikido was founded in 1942 by Ueshiba Morihei, one of the most prominent martial arts instructors of his time. It is a purely defensive art performed by blending with the motion of the opponent and redirecting the force of the attack rather than opposing it head-on.

CREATIVITY AND RESOURCEFULNESS

Online teaching is diverse and adapted to the needs of each child.

Differentiation is a core value of our school, and it remains at the center of our approach to online learning. Our teachers are given freedom to experiment and implement different approaches in order to meet the needs of each child at all grade levels.

BALANCED LEARNING DURING CAMPUS CLOSURE

Recognizing the importance of off-screen time

With the pursuit of balancing students’ online learning, our Elementary School Principal sends out a weekly task that fosters creativity and encourages students to take time off their screens. In addition to the weekly Principal’s Challenge and a PE challenge, students receive online assignments allowing them to learn whilst being innovative in the creation of their projects.

Blogs & Online Showcases to Support Students

Across the school, all homeroom and specialist teachers have set up blogs and several valuable online resources to ensure that students are supported. Resources such as RazKids, Khan Academy, StoryBoard, Seesaw and ClassDojo enable teachers to offer differentiated student learning and track individual learning outcomes.

Physical Education

We recognize physical fitness as a necessary component of a happy, healthy lifestyle for children and adults.

Our Physical Education Department takes the lead on this initiative by guiding students and their families in live PE lessons over the internet, by providing opportunities for independent physical activities indoors and outdoors, and by curating the best outside resources that will motivate our community to get up and move.

Google Classroom

Just like at school, we follow up on class work, submissions, and assessment.

Just like in school, students are assigned a wide range of tasks, and are able to receive timely feedback and assessment, all in one central, paperless location.
