OUR Signature Programmes

Programme Name Details
Chinese Cultural Immersion Programme

All lower secondary students in the Express Stream will be offered a Chinese Cultural Immersion Programme. It is a school-based subject where students learn about the history and development of traditional Chinese culture such as costumes, cuisines, architecture, Chinese Medicine, and wedding ceremonies. Each 45-minute lesson consists of  teaching, a learning activity and an assessment.

Nadi Sastera Nadi Sastera is to enrich students’ learning by providing a platform for students to challenge their proficiency in the Malay Language based on their passion and skills.  This programme is divided into two segments: Reading and Drama. The first phase is to analyse and study in-depth a selected text to understand the complexity of the issues surfaced through Circle Time. The second phase is to bring learning to life through drama.
