At BEP we allow students to explore learning by doing or experimenting themselves. We want our students to develop independent learning skills from their young age in order to overcome the lazy and laid-back learning attitude witnessed in the classroom in our mainstream schools.

This initiative will also enable parents to get involve in their children’s learning. By making sure that all parents provide all resources and equipment needed by their children for learning. We expect parents to be responsible for spreading the news and supporting other parents who are not supportive of their children’s education.

The use of inter-generational approach to support learning by doing

This initiative help parents to learn some basic computer skills from our most able students. Students who are bright with excellent IT and computer skills are selected to teach parents. Students are not allocated to teach their biological parents but other parents to ensure inter-transfer of knowledge from one generation to another. The parents will also have the opportunity of teaching the students some key skills. For example, vocational skills like cooking and baking. We focus on these two skills for now.
