Approach / Framework / Philosophy
The Programme for Active Learning (PAL) is a recommendation by the 2009 Primary Education Review Implementation (PERI) Committee to provide greater emphasis on non-academic programmes for all Primary 1 and 2 students. PAL is part of the curriculum and offered during time-tabled time. In PAL, students are exposed to varied and fun learning experiences in four domains: Sports and Games, Outdoor Education, Performing Arts and Visual Arts.
Through PAL, students will:
- Learn to express himself/herself clearly
- Develop confidence
- Develop a sense of curiosity and a positive attitude towards learning
- Develop greater awareness of self and others, learn to manage relationships and work in teams
- Learn to make responsible decisions
The school hopes that through active participation in each module of PAL, each student will be a H.A.P.P.Y child. Happy, Active, Participative, Plucky (Courageous) and DYnamic
