Information & Communication Technology (ICT)

Our Philosophy

To prepare our students to meet the needs and succeed in a knowledge economy, they need to be equipped with 21st century competencies and dispositions to become self-directed learners and collaborate with one another to achieve common goals. The school believes that the use of ICT has to be integrated seamlessly and pervasively into the school curriculum to transform learning suited for the 21st century learners.

Key Programmes

Baseline ICT Skills
Our school believes that all students in Dazhong need to be equipped with the baseline ICT knowledge, skills and values in order to fully benefit from a curriculum enriched with ICT, and eventually thrive in a technology-driven society. 

We adopt a structured progressive approach to impart baseline ICT skills to our pupils during their ICT lessons. Infusion of baseline ICT skills into the formal and informal curriculum such as the AEP project work enables our pupils to see the relevance and apply what they have learnt.

Code for Fun Enrichment Programme for Primary Four 2016
Our school conducted the Code for Fun Enrichment Programme, a joint effort by IDA and MOE to increase our students’ exposure to coding and computational thinking during the one week March holidays. 10 hours of lessons were conducted for three of our Primary 4 classes (workshops for the other 2 classes are scheduled during the first week of the June holidays). The pupils learnt about logical thinking using the Scratch 1.4 software, and programmed Moway robots with various sequences to complete the given tasks. The pupils had fun learning how to create simple games and even programmed their robots for a sumo challenge with their classmates!
