The English department aims to develop students to be confident, savvy and effective communicators in a media-rich environment where students acquire the core knowledge, skills, competencies and values with the help of digital media resources to express their ideas and share their creative vision effectively.

These are achieved through our school-based STELLAR (Strategies for English Language Learning And Reading) programme for all students as well as the school’s extensive reading programmes such as Phonics and Digital Storytelling for the Lower Primary and Literature Appreciation Programme (LAP) for P1 to P5. The use of technology is also integrated into English lessons so that students have opportunities to express themselves using digital media such as blogs, presentation slides and contemporary online tools.
