Our Services and Programmes (GEMS. Time)
In our Knowledge Park Systemic Learning Framework (KPSLF), we strongly advocate the
partnership between the Centre, the Parents and the School to provide an enriching learning
journey for each student. In addition to close supervision of school homework, we offer exciting
programmes specially designed for your child’s holistic development.
 Learning Styles Profiling
Students will undergo individual self-assessment (Dunn & Dunn Learning Styles Profiling) to
identify their own Personality, Learning and Thinking Styles. The Learning Styles report will
enable our programme staff to understand the needs of the student better.
 Character Development
Our Character Development programme aims to promote gracious living and positive social
interaction among students. We also aims to promote social and emotional learning in the
students, providing them with skills to be a self-motivated and self-directed learner with
strong positive values.
 GEMS Time
GEMS Time is a unique, fun enrichment programme that teaches students the relevant skills
and mind-sets for holistic development. Life skills taught in this programme include personal
motivation, goal setting, oral and presentation skills, writing strategies and creativity and
 Outdoor Activities
Students will be engaged in outdoor activities to build and develop their social-emotional
skills. It helps students to self-regulate their emotions, increase their imagination, contribute
to their cognitive development, and facilitate their social & interaction skills.
