Secondary 1 & 2

Duration: 2hrs/week

The first year at Secondary School is a huge year of adjustments. Young teens begin to slowly realise the changes which are ahead of them. They also need to adapt to a new learning style. Gone are the days where they are under the eagle-eye of their teachers, always being questioned by their teachers. It is now up to them to ask the questions.

For the Dandelions who have been with us through their Primary School, this style of teaching is not new to them. We have encouraged inquiry-based learning and critical thinking from an early age. Their journey continues as we up-level their learning experience with more topical discussions, from local news to current world affairs. Our aim is to expand their experience beyond what can be found in their textbooks; to learn how to think and explore different thoughts and ideas; to be critical and have an opinion; to not only voice but construct and position their opinions.

Our syllabus includes:

• Chinese Application 2.0 思考与应用
• Thought-based Practical Writing 思维与写作
• Oral Communicator 口语练习
• Appreciation of Chinese Literature 文学欣赏
• Video-based Discussion 录像讨论
• World Exploring 探索新世界
• Comprehensive Testing 综合测试
• General Revision 总复习
• Mock Examination 模拟考

Secondary 3 & 4

Duration: 2hrs/week

Like going through the PSLE, the Accomplished Dandelions will be going through yet another milestone in their educational careers – “O” Levels. However unlike the PSLE where it is text based, Secondary School students are tested based on their general knowledge, their knowledge of the current affairs; and using their mastery in the Chinese language to showcase their knowledge and express their opinions.

It is a tough time for them and this is the fruition of the years of Dandelion Philosophy which has been instilled in them. From the nurturing of their teachers to the positive mind-set much needed to see them through this critical stage. From their proficiency in their critical thinking skills they have mastered to their ability to articulate both verbally and in writing. Ultimately to succeed in their “O” Levels.
