Learners who are grounded in good character, appreciative of the Chinese culture, skilled in speaking and writing in Chinese Language.
To provide opportunities for pupils to inculcate good values, appreciate Chinese culture, develop strong interest and competency in writing and speaking of the Chinese language.
The Mother Tongue Department (Chinese Language) seeks to realise the key goals of Mother Tongue language syllabus, that is to develop in our pupils the 4 basic language skills, spoken and written interaction skills, as well as the 21st century competencies through a variety of classroom activities. In addition, pupils will also be given exposure to Chinese culture and values through various level and school-wide programmes so as to better understand and appreciate the culture. Ultimately, we hope our pupils will experience joy in learning Chinese and use the language confidently in everyday lives.
