What do the primary school students do?


The students participate enthusiastically in many local, regional and global competitions in math, English, science to foster a healthy competitive spirit. Competitions help students to succeed by building their self- awareness and confidence, strengthening relationships via collaboration and teamwork, developing their creativity and problem-solving skills and motivating them to have a deeper understanding of the subject matter.

Lessons begin by setting the expectations for the day. By singing songs, sharing experiences, and reviewing materials together, students are mentally prepared for the day ahead.

Concert Performances

Students are provided with many opportunities throughout the academic year to develop their personal talent and confidence in stage and public performances. Many of these performances are platforms for cultural celebrations such as Lunar New Year, Khmer New Year or Christmas.


Besides learning business concepts and skills, students undertake tactile, heuristic activities which equip them with entrepreneurial attitudes and aptitudes. They then put their skills and knowledge to work at the end of each academic year by setting up a small business in the school’s market day bazaar to benefit a local charity.

Exchange Programmes

The students have many occasions to share their cultures, traditions, experiences, ideas, passions and creativity and make new friends through online and onsite exchange programmes with local and international schools in Cambodia as well as schools in Singapore.
