At Khayay, students are challenged in their learning as they experience various styles of learning an became an active actor of the entire process. Since preschool, they investigate and explore their surroundings and materials with the guidance of teachers, all while developing socio-emotional characteristics that help them grow into a confident child. Our primary school curriculum comes as a continuity of our preschool program. We keep on encouraging our students' love of learning and socio-emotional development for a successful academic life.
Our primary school follows the Myanmar National curriculum, mixed with an American, French and Japanese curriculum. Each year, our curriculum undergoes a review to ensure that it is up to date, relevant, and tailored to the needs of our students. Furthermore, Khayay is also recognized by the Ministry of Education while being an international school. This means that Myanmar children who wish to remain in the Myanmar schooling system have the option to prepare and sit the Myanmar examinations according to the national system.
Students have three language classes, science, math, social studies, music, arts and crafts, and P.E. throughout the week. Life skills, ethics, experiential and cultural lessons are also a part of their weekly schedules. Programming lessons have also been recently introduced for the higher grade levels.
With regard to language classes, the 3 languages taught for now are English, Japanese and Myanmar. Natural language learning and acquisition is encouraged for all languages. English classes are taught according to the GrapeSEED curriculum.
Each day, students are also led through a reflection session to review what was done for the day, their thoughts and feelings about it, a preview of the next day, etc. This helps our learners to become more reflective, enabling them to grow in their understanding of themselves and their learning journeys.
