1. BASELINE STANDARDS
The Baseline ICT Standards is a set of ICT skill competencies set out in two progressive Key Stages in primary schools. These represent the basic level of knowledge, skills and values that students need in order to fully benefit from a curriculum enriched with ICT, and eventually thrive in a technology-driven society. The standards are generic and are integrated into core subject and project work.

As part of the national initiative to make Singapore a Smart Nation, our school conducted the Code for Fun Programme annually for all our Primary 3 to Primary 5 students. The objectives of this training are to develop in our students basic computing literacy and skills that would enable them to become informed and responsible users of computing technology as well as to increase their exposure to coding.
The programme includes academic learning of related concepts using visual-based programming language and combining it with robotic kits to create a coding experience for the students. The coding lesson using microbit is infused into the Applied Learning Programme (ALP). In addition, our Primary 5 students also learn coding using Sphero robots in collaboration with Ministry of Education (MOE) and Infocomm and Media Development Authority (IMDA).
The rationale for having e-learning days is to allow our students to be familiar with the process of using our e-learning portal and for us to gather feedback on the ease of using the portal. E-learning will allow us to be better prepared for a Home-based Learning scenario where students are required to stay and learn at home should there be a need for school closure in times of an emergency.
We have engaged MCOnline as our Learning Management System (LMS) portal.
