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.

 

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 incomplexity and reinforcing previous learning.
