Key Programmes

iCharacter Reading Programme
It aims to inculcate passion for reading among pupils, instills good values and moral principles and levels up their MTL skills – Listening, Speaking, Reading and Writing.  It’s a thematic approach to reading with post-reading activities to impart the desired skills and values set for the books.

MTL Cultural Camp
It aims to provide our pupils an immersive environment to learn and appreciate their own cultures, as well as, cultures of other races through hands-on activities.  Incidentally, this will help to promote racial harmony through better understanding of each other’s cultral differences.

MTL Fortnight
MTL Fortnight provides platforms for pupils to actively learn MTL and the associated culture so as to experience MTL as ‘living languages’. The activities also provide authentic opportunities for pupils to use MTL and experience the culture.
