Learning for a Meaningful Life
Our school is a social place of learning with a strong identity. Interactive projects such as our cooking workshops, science workshops, vegetable gardens, and weekly outings, give students plenty of opportunities to socialise and become active participants in their learning. These are all situations to be lived in first languages and second languages, which are an integral part of our linguistic programme.
EFLP language courses are fully integrated. Each student builds multilingualism day after day, across disciplines and through socialisation. All subjects are taught in French and English and extracurricular activities taught in French, English, and Lao.
EFLP recognises the necessity to establish a school in its host country and incorporate Lao language into the curriculum.
We have created a broad and engaging curriculum: we also pay attention day after day to student’s autonomy and initiative, mastery of information and communication technologies, and health education. Our pedagogical approach and the organisation of the school time contribute to the delivery of knowledge, skills, abilities, and attitudes according to the ages of the children.
EFLP welcomes foreign students in the French system offering them a large part of their proper curriculum taught in their first language. We construct an individual plan for each child considering their language and cultural background but also their level of schooling. We build these courses with the families. From initiation to the intensive lessons, this linguistic approach contributes to the development of a multilingual and multicultural competence acquired at different levels of education.
Our teachers are skilled in classes with students of different levels and have proven experience in teaching abroad. They develop a pedagogy and content adapted to the context of our school and its environment. They are fully equipped to welcome and facilitate students of varying nationalities and first languages.
Multiculturalism is experienced by students through the intervention of native, qualified teachers, who convey their proper educational culture. All coexist in our weekly workshops, which again play in our approach to education.
RESPECT FOR NATURE
The early childhood years are vitally important for laying the foundation of being environmentally responsible now and in the future. It is through the interaction with the environment that children shape their life long attitudes, values, and patterns of behaviour. EFLP provides ample opportunities for children to interact with nature in order for them to develop respect and care for the environment.
