North Vista Secondary School
What Are The Methods Used In North Vista Secondary School?
North Vista Secondary School was established in 1956 as Gan Eng Seng Government Chinese Middle School, one of the Government Chinese Middle Schools to help Chinese students. The studies had disrupted the Chinese middle school riots. After a merger with Thomson Vocational School in 1958, the school was renamed Thomson Government Chinese Middle School and then Thomson Secondary School.
The campus relocated to Sengkang at 11 Rivervale Link, Singapore 545081 December 15, 2000. Thomson Secondary School was renamed North Vista Secondary School after the move, but the native name De Xin was kept as a nod to the school’s rich history and purpose of instilling values in students.
Citizenship & Character Education
The Character and Citizenship Education (CCE) curriculum in Nevada strives to build Vistarians of Character by providing complete affective experiences. We try to instil our school values of Care, Resilience, Respect, and Responsibility through the provision of pervasive, meaningful, and engaging activities throughout a spectrum of student experiences, as outlined in the CCE Curriculum Frame in North Vista Secondary School.
All of this is designed to develop Vistarians of Character who are willing to learn, achieve, and contribute to a better future.
The program “From Farm to Table”
To establish a resilient future for Singapore, the Singapore Green Plan 2030 places a renewed emphasis on food security. The ALP at North Vista focuses on sustainability and allows students to create connections between classroom learning and real-world issues and possibilities. It also introduces students to STEM-related them to learn beyond their textbooks, identify their aptitudes and interests, and make educated decisions about their future education and career options. All Secondary students get the opportunity to learn about traditional farming practices for growing food. As they take control of the agricultural plot assigned to their class, they develop collaboration and knowledge application skills.
The Education Technology and Information (ETI) department helps all Instructional Program (IP) departments quality learning in support of the overall curriculum, in line with MOE’s ICT in Education. As Singapore evolves into a Smart Nation, we continue to invest in our Vistarians by making meaningful use of educational technology. We want to give our Vistarians convenient access to technology and help them enhance their digital literacy so they may learn whenever and wherever they want.
Our instructors go through professional development to become designers of learning experiences environments as multiple expanded infrastructures that support teaching and learning through the use of education technology continually put in place.
Department of Physical Education and Sports Science
The PE and Sports Science Department at North Vista Secondary School continue to be proud of its holistic curriculum, which attempts to instil the significance of a healthy and active lifestyle in all Vistarians. Rigor, Relevance, and Reflective Learning are the pillars upon which Physical Education is delivered to pupils. Our curriculum and programmes create to Engage, Excite, and Enrich pupils while working toward the ultimate objective of instilling excellent values in them through sports and activities.
Our Department continued to design 12 to 16 hours of engaging and effective learning for each sport the kids learned, following the updated PE curriculum.
