Students attend a weekly church service held by the School Chaplain at Christ Church. We have an array of subjects stressing language, knowledge, thinking and learning skills, appreciation of the arts, as well as physical and spiritual well-being. We offer leadership training opportunities for more mature students. We expect students to serve the School and the community and also go on Outward Bound before they graduate. We want our students to be trilingual and we use Putonghua as the medium of instruction for Chinese. The School adopts an activity and project based learning approach; P.1 to P.6 - Science projects integrated with English, ICT and other subjects, Social Studies projects integrated with Chinese, ICT and other subjects, History & Geography projects (P.3 to P.6 only) integrated with English, ICT and other subjects.
Development of Key Tasks : Moral, Civic and National Education is integrated in the curriculum and conducted especially during Assembly, Homeroom, Scripture lessons, church services, life education lessons, Social Studies lessons, educational visits and talks. Apart from reading lessons, students have access to the class library and main library regularly. Time is set aside each day for quiet reading to form good reading habits. Activities are held year round to foster a good reading culture. The School adopts an activity and project based approach to teaching and learning in Science, Social Studies and History & Geography. The School implements e-learning in teaching and learning to enhance students’ literacy.
