Team building activities




English Debate

The English Debate team offers a competitive and intellectually stimulating platform for students to refine their critical thinking, research, and public speaking skills. Through participating in debates, students learn effective communication, logical reasoning, and persuasive techniques.

TOPs TV is an exciting student team that focuses on multimedia production and broadcasting. Students get hands-on experience in producing English-language videos, interviews, and documentaries, developing their creativity, teamwork, and technical skills. They bring engaging content and captivating stories to our school community.

Students involved in TOPscoop (our Newspaper Team) contribute to the creation and publication of our school newspaper, showcasing their talents in writing, journalism, and editorial work. They cover important school events, share student achievements, and express their perspectives on various topics.



  1. Form activities
    At our school, S1-5 students actively participate in at least two form activities each year, directly related to their learning topics and skills. These activities include inter-class competitions, where representatives compete with each other, fostering a sense of healthy competition and enabling students to apply their knowledge in practical settings. Through these engaging activities, students develop critical thinking, problem-solving, and communication skills while enjoying a dynamic learning environment.


  1. Seasonal activities
    To promote interdisciplinary learning, our English department collaborates with various EMI subject departments to organize activities that allow students to apply what they have learned in their subject lessons and connect that knowledge with their daily life experiences. These collaborative efforts extend to departments such as History, Integrated Science, Technology and Living, Mathematics, Geography, Citizenship, Economics, and Society. By integrating knowledge and perspectives from different subjects, we provide students with an educational experience that enhances their understanding and makes learning more meaningful and relevant.

Curriculum (learning topics)

Junior curriculum

In our junior curriculum, we promote multimodal learning by incorporating four projects that engage students in understanding and creating multimodal texts. These projects include tasks such as designing infographic posters featuring inspiring individuals and creating webpages for movie reviews. In our language arts curriculum, we explore fiction and non-fiction, drama, and poetry, fostering creativity and literary appreciation. In addition to the four language skills (reading, writing, listening, speaking), we place emphasis on building a strong foundation in grammar and ensuring students develop accuracy in their language use.

Senior curriculum

Our curriculum prioritizes DSE skills training, seamlessly integrating language arts and non-language arts modules into the core curriculum. Students are required to demonstrate their abilities through diverse assessments, such as group projects and team speeches. This approach prepares them to confidently express themselves in both written and spoken forms and equips them with the skills to tackle new and unexpected tasks. Moreover, students learn to synthesize information and effectively use language in real-world settings, transcending the boundaries of exams and embracing practical applications.
