SPECIALIST – LEARNING DIFFICULTIES
A learning difficulty is a condition that can cause a child to experience problems in a traditional classroom learning environment. The child may face difficulties in developing literacy skills and maths and can also affect memory, ability to focus and processing certain forms of information. Difficulties in learning does not affect general intelligence (IQ).
We at MGPS, take extra care to carry out special diagnostic test of our students who score below average academic results to identify the root cause of their performance, whether it is a learning disability or a learning difficulty. Special learning programs are designed to meet the individual needs of students and help them excel in their academic goals.

HEALTH CARE OFFICER
“He who has health has hope; and he who has hope has everything.”
A student’s health is directly related to his or her ability to learn. Children with health problems often have difficulties to retain focus in the classroom. As Health and Hygiene Officer at MGPS, my role is to provide immediate health care whenever needed and extend maximum support to our students.
At MGPS, we ensure that our students receive immediate first aid treatment during any injuries or minor ailments throughout the day at school. We make all efforts to address immediately to any medical or health needs, which can arise whilst students are in school. We do that in close co-ordination with Parents and the Local Health Centre guidance.
