– Theme: Promoting the science of learning and teaching
– Format: Immersive experience
– Primary language: English
Our school’s specialism focuses on seamlessly merging music, maths, dance and design with a strong focus on Hop-Hop Based Education (HHBE / #HipHopEd).
It is a performative, multi-disciplinary and energetic method that caters to the kinaesthetic, auditory, visual and traditional learning styles. Also, it broadens the learners’ experience beyond the banking model of teaching.
We have a variety of locally made unique educational materials including CDs, posters, choreography and a booklet which are aesthetically pleasing and support our teaching method.
After years of teaching this way, we have seen kids come alive and get excited to attend class. We literally have kids run to our class to start working. We’ve also seen learners develop their critical thinking skills and improve their reasoning, which benefitted them beyond the math classroom. In addition to this, we’ve seen many kids’ marks improve.
