Vision and Mission

Vision

Confident and Competent Communicators in Internationally Acceptable English

Mission

The English Language Department seeks to equip our pupils with the four language skills of listening, speaking, reading and writing so as to develop them into confident and effective users of the English Language in the 21st century.

Approach

We are guided by four interlinked principles (4A’s) – Appreciation, Acquisition, Application, Achievement – in our endeavours.

We believe in cultivating in our pupils an appreciation of the English Language which can ignite their passion for learning. We aim to be the agents which facilitate the pupils’ acquisition of necessary language skills, which can then be applied effectively in listening, speaking, reading and writing. Through the effective application of language skills, we hope that our pupils will be able to reach new levels of achievement in their learning. 

Specific Programmes

As part of our Whole School Approach to Effective Communication, the English Language Department is pleased to offer various programmes to develop our pupils’ competencies in the four language skills mentioned above. The details of some of these programmes are as follow:
