Humanities 2019.jpg
We aim to provide student-centric, values driven education based on key Humanities principles of critical thinking, empathy and sense of inquiry. This will be achieved through the use of exciting, engaging and enriching lessons and programmes such as the Secondary 1 interdisciplinary enrichment where students are given the opportunity to explore how Mathematics and Science can be integrated with the Humanities discipline. Our students will also get to visit the Asian Civilisation Museum, Gardens by the Bay and Changi Museum to help them appreciate and understand the historical and geographical concepts found in the curriculum. We also believe in developing key competencies such as global awareness and cross-cultural skills through the planned overseas learning journey to Vietnam. Our lessons also cater to students of different ability as we constantly challenge students to think and question critically. Debates and source analysis are often featured to help students develop wider and varied perspectives. Students are also given opportunities to participate in competitions such as the NUS Geography Challenge to expand their horizon in Humanities. Through the Humanities programme, we will help students understand, appreciate and create a world of possibilities.
