Key ICT Programmes
1. Baseline ICT training Programme
The ICT department understands the importance of preparing our pupils for the digital world. Through the 6 years of their journey in school, our pupils will be mastering different ICT literacy skills to equip them for collaborative learning (COL) and self-directed learning (SDL). This progressive training prepares pupils for a range of exciting English, Math, Science, Mother Tongue Languages, Art and Music project work and learning journeys.

Pupils are guided on using ICT tools to aid them in their reading.
2. Cyberwellness and its Principals
Cyber Wellness (CW) refers to the positive well-being of Internet users. It involves an understanding of online behaviour and awareness of how to protect oneself in cyberspace. The focus of CW is about helping pupils to become responsible digital learners. When navigating cyberspace, they should demonstrate respect for self and others and practise safe responsible use. Pupils should also be a positive peer influence by harnessing technology for collaboration, learning and productivity.
MOE's Cyber Wellness Framework
MOE uses the CW framework to develop the child’s instinct to protect and empower him to take responsibility for his own well-being in cyberspace. The three principles, ‘Respect for Self and Others’ and ‘Safe and Responsible Use’ and 'Positive Peer Influcence' when adhered to will anchor your child’s well-being in cyberspace as they will then be able to make careful and well-considered decisions.
Schools are guided by the CW framework to plan and implement CW programmes which are customised to the student profile and school environment.
1. Respect for Self and others the pupils need to:
- uphold their own dignity when online
- respect other people online
2. Safe and Responsible Use, the pupils need to:
- have an understanding of the risks of harmful and illegal online behaviours and take steps to protect themselves
- make wise and healthy choices by maintaining a healthy balance of their online and offline activities
3. Positive Peer Influence, the pupils need to:
- be a positive role model online
- advocate positive online behaviour by reporting cases of cyberbullying to a trusted adult
Cyber Wellness Curriculum
The CW curriculum aims to equip students with life-long social-emotional competencies and sound values so that they can become safe, respectful and responsible users of Information and Communication Technology (ICT).
The main platforms for the delivery of the lessons are via Form Teacher Guidance Period (in Primary schools) and assembly talks (in Primary School), and in the Character and Citizenship Education (CCE) curriculum (in Secondary Schools and Pre-University). Key Cyber Wellness topics are also incorporated into the formal curriculum through subjects such as English and Mother Tongue Languages where appropriate. The MOE Sexuality Education, The Growing Years package also has Cyber Wellness-related contexts where relevant.
The CW curriculum centres on the two foundational principles of the CW framework. The three big ideas of Identity, Relationships and Choices are in alignment with the big ideas of MOE’s Character and Citizenship Education. Through the curriculum, a wide range of topics including balanced use, healthy cyber identity, and developing a positive online presence are covered.
