Home-Based Learning

Home-Based Learning exercises are carried out at least once in a year. This is to encourage pupils to take responsibility for their own learning and to familiarise pupils with a learning environment that is necessary in the event of school closure due to a national emergency.

 

 

Cyber Wellness Programme

In the face of emerging technology and the availability of information at the click of a mouse, it is important for pupils to tap on the potential of the Internet as well as to be aware of the dangers involved in their interaction with the cyber world. As such, pupils will learn cyber wellness values to protect themselves on the Internet.
