Our Goals

  • Master the Language: To develop pupils’ language competencies in listening, speaking, reading and writing in an engaged learning environment.

  • Treasure the Language: To make the learning of Chinese, Malay and Tamil meaningful by promoting the cultural richness found in each Language.

  • Love the Language: To spark the joy of learning Mother Tongue Languages with interesting and engaging instructional activities and programmes. 


Reading Programme 

Students are encouraged to read books to lay a strong foundation in their Malay language learning and to build up their vocabulary. Activities conducted include a Creative Reading Competition for all levels. That apart, they are encouraged to share their stories with their classmates and this has helped them to be more confident in using the Malay language.
