Preview: The Story Of The King Of Peace

| 2016/10/13

Change is possible in almost every setting and circumstances. In the keynote, I will address the lessons learnt from our adolescent programmes and point out necessary next steps for secondary education. The forum aims at...

Why Montessori Education Works!

| 2016/06/07

Montessori has sure had its criticism all over the world, but there are also strong advocates for Montessori education. Here we take a look at why Montessori education works, as we believe it certainly does. Montessori is not a trend If you’re reading this article, you might have experienced the fact that often schools will jump from one trend of teaching to another.
