Other Learning Experiences

Under the NSS Curriculum, OLE is one of the three components that complement the core and elective subjects (including Applied Learning courses) for the whole-person development of students. Our school offers students a range of OLE opportunities encouraging them to participate in the five areas of OLE, namely Moral and Civic Education, Community Service, Career-related Experiences, Aesthetic Development and Physical Development.

To enhance students’ deep learning through quality reflection and facilitate their all-round development as lifelong learners, our school provides students with timetabled and non-timetabled learning time.

The time allocation, activities and goals of different components are summarised in the following table:
