Digital devices have opened up the world to us but sadly with it highly distracted minds have become the norm. Are our children maximizing the use of digital technology to build character, confidence and capability? We invite you to Join us online daily to enhance communication skills and more. The goal of our learning circle is to build personal confidence through practice.


When children learn to express their opinions, they will develop into independent thinkers and problem solvers. Good communication skills therefore proved a foundation for our future success.


• Writing is the foundation of communication. Our voice is activated while writing. This helps build a strong base for our speaking skills

• Opinions do matter! Voicing them builds our confidence. The strength of articulation, relevancy, creativity, solution-ing adds weight to our opinions

• Daily practice is needed to build strong habits and hone-in our skills

• Digital literacy is a critical skill needed to navigate and succeed in today's digital economy

- Constrained by the teachers, system and time (respectfully)
- Worried about making mistakes
- Too much focus on perfection versus progression
- Highly judgement based

A learning circle is facilitated for four weeks in a month, three days a week (T, W, Th) and 30-45 minutes a day. But, there are no fixed times, you choose the time to engage. We all take moments now and then to appreciate as well as curate the learning from each other. The facilitators jump in to help us all progress to the next level.

There are many advantages to enjoy and here are just three (1) Singapore-based accredited teacher-facilitators (2) learning at our own time and at our own pace (3) collectively learning with our peers (4) no evaluation, free to evolve (5) progression and appreciation

Renshu-Kenshu in the Japanese language means Practice-Training.
