East Middle School Programme
School starts at 8am and finishes at 3pm, although many students will be involved in the Activities programme after school, and some may even be involved in sports training before school.
Students follow a weekly timetable consisting of 20 blocks of 75 or 80 minutes, with four blocks per day. English and Humanities is taught as a combined course in Grade 6, while Drama and Visual Arts, and Food and Nutrition and SEED are offered as half-yearly (semester) courses each year.
