1.A Story is a Doorway (Extensive Reading Programme)

Our school has adopted the tagline ‘A Story is a Doorway’, from the poem ‘A Story is a Doorway, by Richard Peck, for our Extensive Reading Programme. This is because reading opens the door to the world of knowledge, imagination and excitement.

This programme aims to instil in students a lifelong passion for reading and develop appreciation for good literature.


2. Whole-School Approach to Oracy

With the goal of developing confident speakers in mind, the school seeks not only to equip students with essential speaking skills, but also to provide them with plentiful of opportunities for public speaking.
