            This school year 2012, we will be faced with the new curriculum K to 12.  Kindergarten to Grade I – VI then Grade 7 to Grade 12.  This means all grade I pupils have undergone kindergarten and is six years old.  This is the new curriculum.  The second year will be using the SEC curriculum but the third and fourth years will the BEC curriculum.  The new curriculum is a challenge for us teachers.  We need to undergo trainings to be able to successfully apply the required knowledge to impost to our pupils.  The curriculum has started last year and truly starts with grade I.  The grade I pupils will definitely enjoy the previous Learning Continuum which is the PELC.  This also includes those grades III to VI.   We teachers are in the crossroads on what, how to teach our pupils.  We are now ready to start it now.

            We now have a new view of the learning process that is making ourselves available to our pupils.  We also have a transition in the application of the new curriculum.   Teachers may prime their students in a number of ways.  It is necessary that teachers should know about the new curriculum so that we can deliver our bests in order to implement K to 12 effectively.
