Applied Learning Programme (ALP): Project THINK (Thinking Holistic Innovative Networked Kids) for Home Earth since 2019
Project THINK for Home Earth is focused on environment education and is designed to enable P1 to P6 students to be ‘future-ready’. This is done by enabling them to be environmentally literate individuals who can understand environmental issues and how human decisions affect environmental quality. Through this programme, students will learn how to use the knowledge they have about the environment to problem-solve and derive innovative solutions.
Code for Fun
This programme offers a fun and interactive way for students to learn programming skills. In addition, it enhances logical thinking, analytical skills and how students organise data. The skills learnt are subsequently applied in the Project Work of the students.
Learning for Life Programme (LLP)
A unique feature of Peiying Primary School is our ‘Adventure Tower’, which supports the emphasis given to Sports and Outdoor Education. Sports and Outdoor Education has a natural affordance for students to clarify and act on their personal values and demonstrate positive emotions and social behaviours. The interaction and problem-solving nature of sports and outdoor education activities allows students to have numerous instances to communicate and interact positively with others, source for information and as well to think critically and creatively. These are important skills which are necessary for 21st century living.
Leveraging the school’s strengths in Sports and Outdoor Education, in
2014, we conceptualised Sports, Character Development and Adventure Learning
Experiences@Peiying - SCALE@Peiying as a Learning for Life Programme (LLP). It
is a 6-year sports and outdoor education programme that provides students with
real-life experiential learning to develop their character and values,
cultivate positive attitudes, self-expression and strengthen their interaction
skills. SCALE@PEIYING resonates the importance of character development as an
integral part of holistic education and is aligned to MOE DOEs and the school’s
Celebration of Learning - For students, by students
The competencies learnt by students are creatively put to use as each team from P3 to P6 is given the choice to select the subject and topic they want to work on. Students set up booths to share their scientific investigations, show how something works or challenge others with mathematics or language games. In addition to being self-directed learners, and being involved in decision-making, Celebration of Learning challenges the entrepreneurial dare in students.
