Permata Bangsa maintains small class room sizes. “Overall, research shows that students in smaller classes perform better in all subjects and on all assessments when compared to their peers in larger classes. ... However, for minority and at-risk students as well as those who struggle with English Second Language and English literacy, smaller classes enhance academic performance.” NCTE (National Council of Teachers of English; https://ncte.org)
We are a group of teacers who really love children and enjoy every moment.
PBS teachers love to get children "out of the classroom". There is at least 1 fleild trip and 1 class trip per semester. There are also many outdoor classes or project based learning to engage their active minds.
Our small class size, highly trained professionals and comprehensive delivery model make us more effective in meeting your child's "special content and language learning needs".
The Primary Teachers Leadership Team have been with us for over ten years and hold both Indonesian and UK teaching qualifications.
All classrooms are equipped with computers, internet and ceiling mounted LCD projectors. Halls (Early Childhood Years, Primary, Lower and Upper, Advanced) are designed with Multi-purpose spaces that offer student opportunities for a range of different learning activities.
PBS is nestled on the tranquil hillside of Gombel Lama on the Gombel Golf Course Road, Semarang. Our students especially enjoy the Junior Golf programme and school competitions we promote with our local and international golf partners.
Small Group teaching and learning sessions.
The children may be working in mixed ability or similar ability groups depending on the learning task. During Small Group learning sessions, some groups will work with a teacher or assistant whilst other groups are working independently. These groups rotate so that every group of children has the opportunity to work on both teacher led and independent tasks.
Whole Class Group teaching.
Our teachers aim to make these as interactive as possible.
Daily Bi-literacy and Numeracy tasks that reinforce basic skills.
