INTEGRATED CURRICULUM (PROJECT WORK)
- To train students to be confident communicators, self-directed learners and
- To help students make connections across different disciplines (EL and
Service to School)
- To instil in students a sense of belonging to the school by having a voice
in identify the needs of the school and implementing changes that will benefit
the school community.
Project Planning Phase
Students are presented with a problem, to identify a school need and present a proposal for an improvement to benefit the school population. Students during their EL lessons are taught the fundamentals of writing a good proposal and verbal presentation. The top 2 presentations per class are shortlisted to be presented to the Principal who selects one of the proposals to be implemented as a class.
Project Implementation Phase
The selected proposal is implemented with the collaboration and involvement of the entire class. Students are re-grouped to assume different roles for the successful implementation of the project. The school ICARE values are re-enforced throughout the implementation phase.
Though the Project Work Assessment is only meant for the Secondary 2 Express and Normal Academic Students, the Normal Technical students experience the entire project planning and project implementation phase as well.
