Secondary 2 - Assembly of Solar Panel Operated Toy Car

This Solar Power Car assembly is conducted during Sec 2 D&T lessons as part of the Applied Learning Programme (ALP).



Nutrition and Food Science Unit

The NFS unit advocates a hands-on approach in the weekly lessons which are incorporated with theory, practical and coursework skills by using the visible thinking protocol “I See, I Think, I Wonder”. The coursework integrates varied skills such as investigative, resource management, technological, time management, problem solving, decision making, evaluation and thinking skills in a food-related problem solving project. The various modes of assessment such as oral presentation, practical work, problem-solving tasks, ICT based assessments, report writing and experiments are based on a list of success criteria and are used to assess the student’s work.

Art Unit

The Art Department believes in stretching pupil’s imagination and creativity by provoking their thinking and ability to respond aesthetically.  Students are nurtured to have an informed awareness and appreciation for the Visual Arts which enhances their ability to identify and solve problems creatively. Students also develop competency in the art and design principles, materials and processes. These allow students to foster self-confidence and a sense of achievement through the practice of the art making, by cultivating an inquiring mind, a spirit of experimentation and a passion for the visual arts. The various modes such as I.T,  E-folios, group work  and individual efforts through the processes and final art forms are used to assess the students’ learning.
