Curriculum


IP Lessons

In the classroom, lessons are structured to provide ample opportunities for students to express their critical literary views in sharing their insights gained from reading selected literary works.   This is done through the use of discussions, dramatizations and inter-textual activities that enable students to engage with literary works in multi-dimensional manner.

Literature Symposium

The Literature Symposium, held annually in Term 3, is an event that is run by students for the enrichment and edification of their peers. The objective of this programme is to facilitate consolidation of core skills and texts, to deepen student's awareness of dramatic form and structure through staging and visualization and to encourage hands-on engagement in literary works by participating in the event either as a performer, support crew or observer.

Designed to address key thematic areas and concerns that form the focus of the syllabus, the event saw our student performers staging key extracts from core texts studied in class.  In addition the Literature Symposium also features guest speakers who share how literary works is used to bring out pertinent concerns in society.
