Programmes & Activities

To meet the different learning styles of our students and maximize learning, the ML programmes are built around the principles of Multiple Intelligences. National Education values are also incorporated in our lessons so that our students receive a well-rounded education.

1. Development of core language skills

We aim to develop the core language skills: oral, listening, reading and writing of our students

To promote oral skills, we use Show & Tell in the lower primary and Class Presentations for the upper primary. The objectives of both programmes are to build self-confidence and encourage the use of spoken Malay Language.

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.
