The CPA unit aims to develop our students to acquire in-depth knowledge and understanding of computing concepts, enhance their proficiency in using a range of application software, strengthen their computational thinking and problem solving skills and educate them on the safe use of technology in everyday life.
Students are taught a repertoire of IT skills and tools that present a natural fit into Baseline ICT Skill areas of word processing, spreadsheet, multimedia, animation and game-making.
Different pedagogical approaches are used by teachers including designing lessons in the Student Learning Space (SLS) that makes students’ thinking visible and facilitate teachers in assessing students’ understanding. Students are constantly encouraged to be creative and exploratory when engaging in both self-directed and collaborative learning activities.
