Our Learning Environment at LFG uses an academic and technology based developmentally appropriate curriculum. What this means is that by using a multimodal approach to teaching, our teachers incorporate practical daily activities and technological tools into their academic goals, thereby creating connections and fostering learning through experience. Through hands-on activities, visual, tactile and auditory stimuli, students will readily make real-life connections to their learning experiences, resulting in lifelong memories.
Our Learning Environment is also a structured setting, with a daily schedule. We encourage children to make their own choices within the routine to enhance the learning process. The learning support programmes are put in place to provide students with opportunities to further improve their skills.
The programmes are the following:
Mathematics Clinic Programme
This programme aims at raising the standard of mathematical knowledge and skills of learners by way of intervention packages; thereby taking care of low learners and medium learners
Reading and Creative Writing Programme
The programme aims to improve reading skills, writing style and proficiency of learners in grammar in English and French.
Computer Skills Programme
The import of this programme is to develop students with computer-based cutting edge in information technology so as to be relevant in global happenings. In this regard, each student is supplied with a note pad and so can interface with his teacher through the interactive board.
Speech Improvement Programme
This is achieved through the instrumentalism of well packaged diction and elocution lessons by suitable hands.
Other Learning Programmes
- Pre-College Intervention Programme
This program is specifically for newly admitted year 7 students. The purpose of the program is to broaden the academic horizon of our students, and fully prepare them for college work. For four weeks, the students will be taught selected topics from primary school curriculum in their core subjects and in the end they will be assessed based on what they have been taught. It is hoped that at the end of the fourth week, they would have been fully grounded and prepared for college work.
- International Examinations
In a bid to give our students and external candidates an opportunity to compete favorably with their contemporaries at international level, Lead-Forte Gate College has introduced tutorial classes for international examinations such as SAT, TOEFL, GMAT etc. The department will also be charged with the responsibilities of preparing and registering students for university placement exams to the USA and Canada.
LFG understands that the school library is a catalyst for literacy and reading and for teaching and scaffolding inquiry learning. We have broad collections of resources in many formats and enthusiastic, trained librarians to support students in using and applying information resources to build new knowledge.
