St Louis Marie de Montfort (LMM) Signature Programmes
The school has been developing and nurturing future-ready Gabrielites and helping them to develop 21st century competencies through programmes such as the Student-Centric Curriculum (SCC) and Inquiry-Based Learning (IBL).
We acknowledge that all Gabrielites have their respective areas of strengths. However, amongst the Gabrielites, are a group of boys who learn at a different pace and would benefit from a more robust and academically challenging curriculum.
As such, there was a need for a differentiated curriculum which caters to the needs of this group of students with a different ability and pace of learning through the introduction of the St Louis Marie de Montfort (LMM) class, otherwise affectionately known as Primary 4 LMM class, in 2016 and Primary 4 and 5 LMM classes in 2017.
The students in Primary 4 LMM follow the mainstream curriculum during school hours with differentiation instruction in their respective subject areas, such as LE³ during Mathematics lessons. A selected group of LMM students are also offered Higher Mother Tongue as a non-examinable subject. This is to allow them to be immersed in the language and to appreciate the culture of their Mother Tongue. After school, the students participate in an array of mandatory and optional programmes that have been carefully curated for them. These programmes take into consideration the students’ cognitive needs and interests and include a Literature Programme, an innovation (IvP) programme, the Scratch programming & Robotics lessons, the E2K (Science) and the LE³ (Mathematics).
