Schedule of Our Lessons

Our school provides education every Saturday between 10.30 and 14.30. We continue our education with the award-winning "Hybrid-Hyflex" system used by many higher education institutions during the pandemic process. When our students come to school in the morning, they stand in line to say our "Our Pledge". While our parents wait behind our students, they listen to our school principal's speech and announcements about the importance of the day. Afterwards, our students go to their classrooms with their teachers.
