Active Citizenship for Social Change

ACSC is a two-tiered program with a thematic approach that exposes Whitleyans to societal concerns and provides platforms for students to put ideas into practice in real-life situations and through connections with the outside world.

Tier 1 is a level-wide initiative that requires all lower secondary pupils to complete an ACSC curriculum. During the year-long curriculum, Sec 1 students investigate school and family concerns, while Sec 2 students focus on creating an inclusive Singapore and devising solutions using the Design Thinking Protocol. After that, the students will choose one or two projects to work on

Personalized Digital Learning Programme (PDLP)

Jobs, businesses, and society are becoming more reliant on digital technology. Because digital technology will play an increasingly essential role in our lives, students must acquire digital skills to be future-ready. To make digital learning more inclusive by providing students with the digital literacy skills they need to succeed in the future, every secondary school student must obtain a school-approved personal learning device (PLD). Students from Singapore can pay for their PLD with their Edusave account. The device creates a learning environment that promotes individualization.
