Applied Learning Programme:
The school’s Applied Learning Program in Urban Design aims to raise students’ knowledge of urban concerns while developing their problem-solving, critical thinking, and collaborative learning abilities as they create sustainable solutions to real-world difficulties and problems. Students learn about Design Thinking and use what they’ve learned in and out of the classroom to make sustainable solutions in the urban farming field transportation, energy, and intelligent living. Secondary 1-3 students are involved in meaningful and purposeful collaborative learning activities as part of a whole-school strategy to foster a community of future-ready learners and design thinkers. Our students will hopefully become self-directed, collaborative, and creative problem solvers in this curriculum, which will prepare them for jobs and life.
School Assessment Policy:
Weighted Assessment (WA) and Non-Weighted Assessment (NWA) are two types of school-based assessment. Non-Weighted Assessments do not contribute to the computation of a student’s final grade for the academic year, whereas Weighted Assessments do. They work together to provide a well-balanced assessment system that encourages self-directed and life-long learning. Milestone Assessments (non-weighted) are given to the graduating class (Sec 4 & 5) to ensure that they put forth the consistent effort and consolidate their learning in preparation for the Preliminary Examinations (100 per cent – weighted).
