Our first workshop organised in the school was to introduce all the teachers and non-teaching staff to the eight essential skills, their importance and underpinning principles. This workshop and the subsequent workshops brought a lot of enlightenment to the teaching staff, as they were able to devote a lot more time to studying these essential skills. Efforts were made to display the essential skill icons in every classroom, the library, in laboratories,... to raise awareness to the entire student body. Teachers used both online and offline material resources to always have a better understanding of the skills and how to teach them with ease. Daily lessons were tailored to focus on specific skills.
