When young children first enter Primary School, the differences between pre-school and primary school may prove to be a big challenge to them. These include bigger class sizes, bigger school premises, different physical and social environments, more subjects and longer school hours. Pupils also need to learn quickly to take care of themselves as well as others so that everyone can learn in a happy and safe environment.
The underlying belief in AStar For Character is that every child has the potential to shine and be an A-grader in their character.
