For year 10 students, they need to adapt to the teaching with English as the medium of instruction (EMI). We hope that, with the joint efforts of teachers and parents, grade 10 students could make rapid progress. For year 11 students, this is the first year of their formal IB study, which means assessments have become stricter. We hope they could constantly reflect on their learning and build a solid foundation for year 12.
The purpose of this parents-teacher conference is to create a good communication platform to help students improve their learning experience and make further progress. Together, we can help students have a great school year.
