CURRICULUM PHILOSOPHY: THE JOY OF LEARNING
The Joy of Learning is a new approach to teaching and learning that combines nurturing children’s emotional health and developing global skills. From research around the world as well as the Impact studies by the Department of Education, the University of Oxford suggests that happier and healthier students are better learners. This is the curriculum for students and schools around the world, which value creative thinking, foster curiosity, and believe that education can help children shape their future.
The curriculum focuses on three key aspects of a child’s development: Health (which fosters a child’s physical, mental, attention, and self-control), Happiness (creating learning joy) and Humanities (developing global skills to solve problems and make people more humane in the face of change). In addition to helping students learn more effectively and happily, the program equips students with the skills they need for future academic and professional success. At UTS, the Oxford International Curriculum consists of five (05) subjects: Well-being, Global Skills Project, Math, Science, and English.
The Oxford International Curriculum creates a classroom culture where students are inspired by lifelong learning, puts “fun” at the heart of the program by bringing happiness to teachers and students, develops Global skills help students succeed in an ever-changing world, fostering creativity, sparking curiosity and shaping the future.
Besides, academic knowledge and practice are still guaranteed with the optimized National Program, combining talent discovery and quality development with the Growing Talent Program.
The OIC establishes a smooth transition across every stage of their educational journey, from Early years through Primary to High School, preparing them for academic success in international GCSEs, AS and A-levels, including in Oxford AQA examinations.
