The ICT Department

The ICT Department consists of the information and communication teaching department. The department also coordinates the integration of Teaching and Learning Technologies and maintains the Multimedia Lab  called the Creativity Lab where both students and staff work on multimedia projects.

Teaching and Learning

Since the courses taught in the department are continuously evolving, teaching and learning is interactive and mostly geared toward helping students sift through the information that is already readily available via the Internet to complete tasks. The aim of the courses taught is to develop knowledge and understanding of concepts and principles in Information Technology and Computer Science. Students are also guided to develop practical problem-solving skills and to develop mastery in the use of productivity applications to complete tasks.

MYP ICT is a part of the school curriculum core courses that is offered to all MYP students. The course aims to introduce students to basic ICT skills and explore useful digital resources to support teaching and learning.

We hope the ICT Course will be able to:

1. Develop an awareness of how the ICT tools we have can support learning

2. Become aware of the implications of using ICT daily

3. Acquire and develop transferable ICT skills that can be used in other subjects

Activities & Clubs

The Probotics club is where students engage with programming, robotics and electronics  for fun and also explore problem-solving possibilities in the school. Students also engage in various competitions such as Microsoft Office Specialist, and the Google Code-in. The idea is for students to apply their knowledge, understanding and skills in completing tasks, which their peers all over the world are also engaging in. The emphasis is not on winning although students are encouraged to aim for the ultimate prize, but is rather on the experience and learning one takes away from such engagement.
