Unique Features of Pathlight Secondary School Programme
Our School Partnerships provide the ‘Best of both Worlds’ to facilitate a smooth transition to Institutes of Higher Learning, and prepare students for life post-Pathlight. It promotes interaction on 4 levels of integration:
- Physical - Opportunities to share facilities
- Social - Opportunities to have fun together
- Academic - Opportunities to learn together
- Professional - Opportunities for staff to learn and exchange ideas
Our students attend school at the school partners daily, and interact socially with their students during recess and selected school events/classes. This model provides for purposeful integration and allows our students to apply classroom learning of social skills to the real world. At the same time, it also contributes to building awareness among mainstream communities of people on the autism spectrum, and towards a more inclusive society.
