The Humanities Curriculum

The department aims to provide students with a firm foundation for independent and continuous learning by giving them ample opportunities for creative and collaborative work. This is carried out through ICT-based learning, inquiry-based learning, field work, differentiated instruction and assessment for learning to make lessons interesting, meaningful and come alive.

The Humanities Department constantly reviews its strategies and approaches to ensure that they are relevant, current and effective in achieving the desired outcomes of education.
