Information and Communication Technology (ICT)

Curricular Goal


Competent and Responsible users of ICT

Our students will acquire ICT skills (as outlined in the Ministry of Education, Singapore’s ICT masterplan) as well as learn the necessary values towards responsible use of ICT.

The approach taken is the introduction of specific skills and accompanying values education at appropriate stages of the students’ education at PGVP.  The skills are also infused into the curriculum to ensure that ICT skills are not just taught but also consistently required and made meaningful through curriculum subjects.
