Department Introduction

In line with the department's mission, teachers in the Malay Language department always strive to inculcate passion for the Malay heritage and culture in our pupils while nurturing them to become effective and confident communicators of their Mother Tongue language. When the love of one's heritage and culture has been ignited, pupils would intrinsically be interested to learn more about their Mother Tongue language.

Together we work towards our mission with the belief that each individual child is unique. The department provides multi-modal learning platforms with different teaching pedagogies such as Cooperative Learning and Multi-Intelligences.

Programmes such as our annual Composition Clinic, Comprehension Clinic and Cultural Camp provide a learning platform to foster pupils' learning and interest thus making Malay Language acquisition appealing and more enjoyable.
