PresHighians as critical thinkers and independent, passionate learners who explore, imagine and create opportunities to bless the community
The various units in the department develop curricula that promote active learning processes. This includes the use of the design thinking protocol in Design and Technology, inquiry-based learning in Art, performance-based learning in Music and Nutrition and Food Science, project-based learning in Economics, and collaborative learning in Accounting.
Connecting students to real-world issues, problems and applications allows the department to create more meaningful learning experiences for all PresHighians.
1. Learning Journeys
To inculcate an inquisitive mindset in our students, we plan learning journeys to offer opportunities for exploration, wonder and extension of learning.
2. Collaboration with the Community
Our annual collaboration with the National Organ Transplant Unit provides a platform for Art enthusiasts to make a positive impact on and to bless the community.
Participation in various competitions organised in the various subjects including Art, Design & Technology, Nutrition and Food Science (NFS), and Principles of Accounting (POA) extends learning opportunities for students beyond the curriculum.
3. Celebrate Learning Together
This event is a showcase of our students’ achievements and learning processes, aimed to encourage and affirm their efforts.
