STELLA’S School in Bandar Seri Begawan and Sultan Hashim Primary School, Batu Apoi in the Temburong District recently organised a joint working visit to Hornbill School, Seria, to share and exchange best educational practices and ideas.
Welcoming the visitors were Kathy Wood MBE, Hornbill School’s Head Teacher, Craig Gill and Rajesh Thapa, Deputy Head Teachers.
Hornbill School places ‘Value Education’ at the centre of its curriculum, and is rated as an ‘Outstanding School’ by Office for Standards in Education, Children’s Services and Skills (OFSTED).
OFSTED is an independent, non-ministerial government department based in the United Kingdom, established in 1992. It inspects schools, including those overseas, and regulates to achieve excellence in the care of children, education and skills for learners of all age.
As quality teaching is central to improving student learning outcomes, teachers have a professional commitment to develop their skills and proficiency in classroom practice, and that prompted the visit in which the participating teachers observed promising practices and participated in discussions to further develop professionally, capitalising on expertise and knowledge exchange between the schools.
The visit also aimed to foster relationships between the members of the schools.
