Chinese Language and Literature

It is our vision to develop students’ maturity of thought, critical thinking skills, and their evaluation of arguments and opinions. In so doing, we aim to foster a passion for reading a wide variety of Chinese literary works, and to have a sensitivity to the Chinese language. This will broaden the global outlook of our students, and equip them with an additional set of wings to soar when they take off into the world. 

Curriculum

For language, students have to read widely. Written texts pertaining to the individual, family, school, community, country and world provide them the opportunity to develop the skill of inferring the implicit. Students cultivate their ability to analyse the content of a variety of text forms like literature books, philosophical essays, newspaper reviews, magazine columns, blog posts etc, and synthesise works of their own. For literature, students are exposed to a wide variety of literary classics across numerous genres, and this allows them to develop their ability to understand, analyse, critique and create.

Enrichment

The rich learning in curriculum is enriched further through Learning Journeys, tea culture as well as movie and drama appreciation.
