Module Websites

As our Sec 2 to 4/5 levels are on 1:1 learning, we have developed websites for each module, to help our students learn with their learning devices and additional learning resources beyond their books and notes.

For parents / public, please note that you will not be able to view some of the links such as google doc / spreadsheet / mindmap / wallwisher etc as you will require permission from the author(s) of these materials, to be able to view them.

These are basically the students' work so if you need to view your child's work, you can simply ask him to show you his work via his school gmail account. Thank you!
