EFFECTIVE COMMUNICATOR CURRICULUM

We strive to develop students who are able to think independently and critically, and communicate effectively with our in-house curriculum for effective communication.  The school-based curriculum encompasses content, pedagogy and assessment of communication skills that are aligned with 21st Century Competencies. Cedarians are provided age-appropriate opportunities to learn and practise oral presentation skills, public speaking, debating skills as well how to present their views in written and verbal form through the school’s formal and enrichment programmes.  By acquiring these skills, they learn to put across their personal point of view articulately and respectfully.  

 

Our curriculum strives to develop effective communicators who are able to communicate effectively in writing and speaking through 3E Approach (Exposure, Experience, Excellence)
