Applied Learning Programme (ALP)
Effective Communication Programme
Starting in April this year, the school was selected by MOE to offer Effective Communication as its Applied Learning Programme (ALP). It aims to develop each of its pupils into a confident person who communicates effectively, in line with MOE’s 21st Century skills and student outcomes.
Equipping the pupils with the salient skills of speaking and listening effectively is the cornerstone of the school's Effective Communication Programme. Each pupil will undergo comprehensive communication modules progressively in speech, drama and theatre as well as master persuasive and argumentative techniques. Beginning with phonics, voice modulation and projection through speech and drama in the Lower Primary (P1 & P2), theater and presentation skills at P3 & P4, and persuasive and argumentative techniques in the Upper Primary (P5 & P6), the school leverages existing resources such as ICT tools and the broadcast studio.
A select group of pupils are identified to form a community of talents which serves as an interest group. Platforms and opportunities are provided to this group of pupils to demonstrate and hone their skills through drama, debates and public speaking competitions held at school, cluster and the national level.
