DIRECT SCHOOL ADMISSION (DSA) EXERCISE 2023
Our Applied Learning Programme (ALP) seeks to broaden our students’ exposure to Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics (STEM) through Health and Food Science to promote sustainable lifestyles. We leverage ALP to inspire our students on the beauty of discovery and innovation. We want to raise the aspiration of students to pursue STEM-related courses and careers to address challenges of the future. Through hands-on exploration and discovery, students learn about organic chemistry through soap making and beeswax wrap making. Students will also get to develop computational skills through coding with micro:bit. They will apply the design thinking process and use their computational skills and knowledge to ideate and design prototypes to solve real-world problems.
Students who are successfully admitted to the school via DSA are expected to honour their commitment to the school and participate in the activities related to the talent they are selected for from year 1 to 4.
We are looking for Primary 6 students who have a strong interest in science and/or mathematics. Applicants should demonstrate an inquiring mind, positive attitude and a sense of commitment towards learning.
Parents and students are encouraged to choose schools wisely based on the student’s aptitude and strengths, bearing in mind the schools’ academic and non-academic requirements, and the programmes available to develop the area of talent.
