In the same way, Chinese is adopted as the medium of instruction to students who benefit most from it while extended learning activities are added to stretch their English potential. To enrich every student’s exposure to English, there are various fun-filled activities to cultivate a language rich environment and a Drama-in-Education junior curriculum has been implemented to promote students’ interests to learn English in an experiential and creative manner.
