Department Programmes and Events

Elective Modules (EM)

Our Secondary 3 Normal course students attend Elective Modules (EM) programme in both Semesters 1 and 2 every year. The programme aims to broaden their learning experiences and provide for their varied learning needs and styles. EMs provide students with opportunities in skills-training and expose them to possible post-secondary education options.

Students attend EMs in various fields like Hospitality, Aeronautics, Culinary, Forensic Science, Early Childhood and Game Design. They learn course-related skills and participate in learning journeys to various industries.

The programme ends with a showcase of students’ newly acquired skills and a sharing of their learning experiences with their teachers and school leaders.
