What to expect

In Kindergarten sections one and two, students are expected to explore the fundamentals of reading, writing, math, science, and social studies in a safe, supportive, and fun-filled environment. Children are encouraged to develop important social and emotional life skills that will carry them through their studies. Collaboration skills and intellectual and emotional growth form an important part of the learning process in the following stages.

“Through the application of Edtech, we aim to make the access to learning anytime and anywhere possible.”

At LISF, we recognize that in today’s interconnected and technology-centric world, the learning environment can be virtual, online, remote as well as the physical place of learning such as a classroom or library. Through the application of Edtech, we aim to make the access to learning anytime and anywhere possible.

Developing students’ critical thinking and social engagement with Edtech is an essential ingredient to modern pedagogy.

The Liwa Education E-Learning portal is designed to support parents, students, and teachers to make effective use of the online learning opportunities within our schools to support achievement and engagement across all our subject areas.

We encourage you to take the time to understand more about the products and applications on offer and how they can be used to support anytime, anywhere learning and engagement.

International Assessments

MAP® Growth™

MAP® Growth™ measures what students know and informs what they’re ready to learn next. By dynamically adjusting to each student’s responses, MAP Growth creates a personalized assessment experience that accurately measures performance. Timely, easy-to-use reports help teachers teach, students learn, and administrators lead.

Every question on a MAP Growth assessment is calibrated to RIT scale. Because the equal-interval scale is continuous across grades, educators can trust it to track longitudinal growth over a student’s entire career. Putting assessment into action means using MAP Growth data to pinpoint the instructional areas where students are ready to tackle—whether they are on, above, or below grade level. It reveals how much growth has occurred between testing events and, when combined with our norms, shows projected proficiency. Educators can track growth through the school year and over multiple years.

Classrooms and outdoor play

We strongly believe that students learning outside the classroom is an important active part of the learning process. It provides an essential experience which enables the students to solve real-life problems; build new hypotheses while giving them an opportunity to interact with their environment to acquire a better understanding of it. Through a variety of play resources, building gross and fine motor skills, concepts of construction, capacity, and dexterity are achieved. Role play via centers and small world activities is vital to language and literacy development, encouraging our students to become confident and use spoken language and listening skills.
