Enrichment Programmes

 

The enrichment programmes intend to equip students with personal effectiveness skills and/or to discover their interest and passion. The enrichment programmes are done through CCAs and the Headstart programme.

 

Aesthetics Programmes

 

Students are given the opportunities to appreciate, participate in and contribute to arts productions and activities within the college. There are performances put up by external agencies or by our very own students. Students are also contributing in publicizing the arts to the public by giving public performances. Besides the Performing Arts, students are also exposed to the visual arts. In addition, students are strongly encouraged to attend performances or arts-related events.

 

Overseas Development Programmes

 

The college aims to develop Pioneers to be cultural savvy and expose our students to the world and sensitise them to the place of Singapore in relation to its global context through the Overseas Development Programme. At the same time, the programme also allows us to enrich and support academic learning and co-curricular activities. Below are some of the overseas trips that our students have embarked or will be embarking on.

Engaging China Programme

 

The Engaging China Programme (ECP) launched since Sep 08 aimed to broaden and deepen students' understanding of China's political, socio-cultural and economic dynamism and its potential in the future, in response to the growing interest in China among the various stakeholders. The programme offers opportunities for students to gather experiences that would help them engage China in future. Activities and programmes include seminar talks and sharing sessions on developments in China by distinguished speakers and alumni members, immersion programmes to China, etc.

 

To support the growing interest among the students in China, the ECP also oversees the China Desk, a new co-curricular activity club started in 2009 by students offering China Studies. Students could opt to join the China Desk to plan and organise activities to help broaden and deepen their understanding in the subject and also raise awareness among the larger student body the key developments in China today.
