  • Social & Cultural Studies (SCS): Split-class arrangement would be in place for NCS students, where English would be used as the medium of instruction for the class. The subject requirements, including syllabus, assignments and assessments would be the same as local students, despite being conducted in English.
  • Chinese History: Split-class arrangement would be in place for NCS students. Small group teaching for NCS students also makes it easier to teach them the historical timeline through storytelling.
  • For tests and examinations, a different set of paper will be provided for NCS students in Chinese Language and Chinese History. For Social & Cultural Studies, the papers would be set in English, with the same content as local students. 


    Project-based Learning / Research Thesis

    To develop an independent learning habit among our students and equip them with the skills of life-long learning, Project-based learning and Research Thesis sessions are arranged for Secondary 2 and 3 students.

    To echo with STEM education development, the theme of the Secondary 2 Project-based Learning is STEM-related. Students are encouraged to find problems in their daily lives and solve them using science and technology. In the process, they are engaged in discovery processes and try to apply scientific theories and coding skills in finding solutions to these daily life problems.

    For Secondary 3 students, as part of their graduation requirement, they need to complete a Research Thesis. The Thesis will be completed on a group basis. Students will investigate in depth on a STEM-related topic under the guidance of our teachers. Through this study, we aim to develop students’ independent learning skills.

    In order to enable their peers and parents to have a chance to share the fruits of students’ efforts, a presentation day is arranged for students to present the findings of their studies.


    MAKER Curriculum

    The “MAKER” Curriculum is our school-based curriculum, which aims to extend students learning in STEM and their generic skills through cross-curricular collaboration. MAKER is an acronym of the five skills that we want students to acquire through this curriculum, namely Mathematical Modelling skills, Analytical skills, Knowledge Management skills, Entrepreneurship and Research skills. The teaching of these skills is infused in different subjects and the MAKER courses, where students can learn the skills in authentic contexts.


    IT in Education

    Bring-Your-Own-Device (BYOD) and hardware in campus

    The BYOD policy implemented from School Year 2020/21 brough our IT in education to the next level. To support the BYOD policy, a wide variety of hardware are installed in all classrooms and in the campus, including LCD projectors, visualizers and iPads. Wi-fi connection is also available in the whole campus to facilitate learning both inside and outside the classroom. Students can also use the computers in the computer rooms and library for learning after school.

    Online Learning Platforms

    Different subjects in our school have made use of online learning platforms to assist learning and teaching. Google Classroom is the main platform used for management of learning. Other school-based interactive learning apps and online resources are also frequently used to help students learn in a more engaging way. Together with the support on Moxtra (x.TNKJSC), our internal communication platform, students can be well supported for learning online.

    Learning and Teaching

    In addition to resources available from different sources, school-based materials such as Books and educational videos are also tailor made by our teachers to cater for the needs of our students. Together with our Campus TV, which has been established for years and equipped with professional hardware and software for video production, students can also be involved in the making of educational videos and extend their learning in a more interesting way.
