HGP Teaching and Learning Framework
Hougang’s teaching and learning framework is the school’s definition of effective instruction grounded in sound values, which will lead to every HGPian becoming a 21st Century independent learner.
The school values (Care, Resilience, Integrity & Responsibility) lie at the heart of our teaching and learning framework. They anchor our goal towards developing our students to become 21st Century independent learners.
The middle ring is divided into 2 domains : Curriculum and Co-Curriculum.
Mother Tongue Languages
Student Leadership Development
Service to Community
Character and Citizenship Education
Outdoor Adventure Education
At HGP, we empahsize the holistic development of our students. Through the school’s innovative curriculum and co-curriclum, HGP provides learning experiences that will nurture our students in the cognitive, physical, aesthetics, social-emotional and moral domains.
Our Teaching and Learning Framework draws on the PETALS dimensions (Pedagogy, Experience of Learning, Tone of Environment, Assessment and Learning Content) to guide teachers plan and design lessons that will engage our students in their learning. We believe that when students are engaged, they will be motivated to enhance their mastery of any subject independently and will also be willing to take on new challenges/risks.
Competencies and Skills
With Social and Emotional Competencies, Innovation and ICT skills together with knowledge acquired through curriculum and co-curriculum programmes, HGPians would become a 21st Century independent learner, which is closely aligned to MOE’s desired outcomes of education for every student :
A Confident Person
A Self-Directed Learner
