Leveraging Project Work to equip pupils with 21st Century Competencies (21CC)
Project Work (PW) is a platform to integrate our Applied Learning Programme (on Environmental Science) and Values-in-Action Programme to equip our pupils with the 21st Century Competencies. The pedagogical approach is to align Design Thinking strategy with the standards of the Critical and Inventive Thinking skills using our Competency Rubric. There is a comprehensive progressive learning package - from self, to family, to school and the community.
Our pupils learn vital skills and values such as teamwork, resilience, critical thinking and problem-solving skills when they embark on their progressive PW learning package.
The P2 PW is on creative toys-making. The P2 pupils and their parents made the toys (using recyclable materials) during the March holidays. This PW is aligned to Sony Creative Toys Making Competition. One key objective of this PW is to strengthen parent-child bonding. This year, the pupils use the toys they created for the Show-and-Tell presentation which is part of their PERI HA Formal Assessment.
The P3 PW is on Soil Farming. P3 pupils carry out investigative tasks to learn the conditions for flowering plants to grow healthily.
The P4 PW is aligned to our Science Signature Programme - Hydroponics. The pupils also designed their very own hydroponics/ self-watering systems for the PW. They beautify their classrooms and the school environment with their planters.
The P5 PW is on creation of green school models. Pupils learn about different forms of renewable energy and ways to conserve energy. They apply the concepts they have learned in the design of their green school models

The P6 pupils embark on a PW that reaches out to the community. They create artefacts that promote the cognitive and psychomotor skills of the elderly residents at the All Saints Nursing Home.
Primary 3 Math & Science Trail
Equipped with smart devices, Primary 3 pupils learn and apply Mathematical and Science concepts at different trail stations within the school compound. This trail promotes teamwork and collaborative learning.

Integration with Art
The I&E and Art Departments collaborated and designed the Primary 2 Mobile Art Programme. This 7-week innovation adopts the use of technology in learning the various elements of Art. The Primary 2 pupils take images illustrating the elements using the mobile devices. They upload and share the images onto the class digital (Padlet) walls to generate constructive peer feedback and discussion.
