To develop a conducive environment in the school for multimedia learning and teaching so that students & staff will have opportunities to be IT proficient and be prepared for the challenges of the future.

Description of Programmes:

Mobile Learning

In the spirit of the 21st Century, Blended Learning provides personalised learning and the opportunity for students to learn at their own pace. Learning takes place anytime, anywhere and students work on authentic tasks which are aligned to the curriculum. Learning is thus more situated, personal and lifelong. As such, students are able to acquire self-directed and collaborative skills.

Information Technology Computing Enrichment

As part of equipping our pupils with 21st century competencies, all pupils attend an ICT Enrichment Programme to acquire necessary ICT skills which are aligned to MOE ICT Baseline to manage and process knowledge.

Students apply their skills mastered through projects which are integrated with the curriculum.

The programme also covers critical areas and issues associated with ethical and legal as well as safe and responsible use of ICT.
