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. Student Learning Space

The online portal promotes self-directed learning. Students can learn at their own pace, revisit concepts and read up on other areas of interest. Teachers use the Student Learning Space to complement their classroom teaching, further enriching students’ learning experience. Providing such a learning environment cultivates our students to become active and confident users of technology.

3. iMTL Programme

The Portal will be rolled out to all Primary Three to Primary Six students, supports the teaching, learning an assessment of Mother Tongue Languages.
