Programmes & Activities

1. Modular Chinese and Higher Chinese

The Modular Chinese Language curriculum structure caters to the unique needs and abilities of our students. All students take the Core Module; students who require additional support take the Bridging Module, while students with the ability and interest study the language at a higher level through the Enrichment Module. To further meet the needs of students with high ability, Higher Chinese are offered from P3 to P6.

2. iMTL Programme

The iMTL Portal, available in 3 languages, provides an interactive platform for teachers and students to engage in Mother Tongue Language learning activities. The Portal will be rolled out to all Primary Three to Primary Six students, supports the teaching, learning an assessment of Mother Tongue Languages. The “Interactive Writing” feature allows peer editing and collaborative writing which helps students to improve on their writing.

Based on the belief that “Literacy is the foundation, reading is the key”, we launched the Yunyu Programme for P1 and P2 students to enable them to “read as soon as possible” by memorising as many characters as possible.
