School Day

Children should not be sent to school earlier than 6:30 am, as there are no teachers on duty before school starts. A child who arrives late interrupts our schedule and class activities. Parents will be called for further explanation if a learner is consistently late on more than three occasions.

The breakfast menu is shared with parents and children with dietary allergies are given special meals.

Teachers and learners sit together in a welcoming circle to practice daily English, such as numbers, colours, shapes, and the days of the week.

60 minutes is allotted for the first lesson.

Learners play multiple crafts, puzzles, and games designed to inspire creativity and thoughtfulness while providing a safe area where they can learn and explore.

45 minutes is allotted for the second lesson.

Learners go for their water break before the start of the next lesson.

45 minutes is allotted for the third lesson. This period is allotted for the teaching of Understanding the World and PSED.

We served snacks at 2:15 pm before learners depart home. Snacks include natural fruit juice without any preservatives, biscuits, chocolates, fruits, pancakes and other pastries. We strictly discourage parents from providing their wards with food and snacks when coming to school. In as much as the latter may be time-consuming and cause lateness, the IB Arthur School feeding programme is committed to healthy feeding. Children are not allowed to chew gum or consume sweets or carbonated drinks in school. Water dispensers are available at vantage points to provide students with potable water; students are therefore required to bring water bottles to school.

Learners depart home at 3:00 pm. Parents who pick up their children have until 3:30 pm to do so. Any parent who anticipates being late should inform the Administration ahead of time
