SIL – “Beyond our Classrooms”
Beyond our Classrooms forms part of the school’s effort to nurture self-directed learning and intrinsic motivation in our students. This is in line with MOE’s initiative to enable students to explore their interests and passions, and learn within and beyond the curriculum. All Secondary 1 students will be part of this pilot programme which spans 8 weeks in Term 2 and 3.
Beyond our Classroom programme has been incorporated in the HBL timetable for all the secondary one classes. These sessions will comprised a combination of zoom and pre-recorded lessons. At the end of every session, students will do a reflection of their journey in the SLS. Students could also go beyond the 40 minute period if they wish, to deepen their knowledge in their areas of interest.
At the end of module 1 and 2, students gets to showcase their products in various forms. The artefacts produced by the students may be showcase in our website in the near future.
Synopsis of the Modules
YSS’s Beyond our Classrooms programme consists of two modules that are designed to provide a unique experience for Yishunites. In the first module which will be carried out in Term 2, the pursuit of students’ passion is integrated with the school’s Distinctive programmes. Thus, the focus in this module would be to excite students with an array of activities related to the school’s niche of Music, Media and Technology.
Module 2 will be carried out in Term 3. In this module, students will also be encouraged to pursue interests in areas related to the language, culture and customs of the countries in Asia to deepen their understanding of our regional neighbours and our connections to them. This is in line with MOE’s thrust to prepare our students to engage with Asia, in particular the ASEAN region.
