Applied Learning Programme (ALP)


In 2019, we introduced our Applied Learning Programme (ALP). ALP has a E3 approach - Engage, Enrich and Empower - to cultivate a joy of learning in our students. With the theme ECO@CKP, it seeks to have our students be:

·       Empathetic towards our Earth and Environment

·       Skilful in Computational thinking with development of Coding skills

·       Opportunity seekers (through Design Thinking)

Its emphasis is on hands-on learning and experiments, solving real-life problems related to our Earth and Environment in our everyday lives.

 
Do watch the following video on our school’s ALP: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AoP6IrzAvic


Students will then apply these skills they learnt in the implementation of their Project Work (PW), which is the end product of the ALP.

 

We believe in a spiral approach where students will revisit the same topics every year, with each encounter increasing in complexity and reinforcing previous learning.
