Applied Learning Programme – Bilingual Media Studies Programme (BMSP)

应用学习项目-双语传媒课程

Applied Learning Programme (ALP) helps students appreciate the relevance and value of what they are learning in the academic curriculum to the real world and develop stronger motivation and purpose to acquire knowledge and skills. The emphasis is on the application of thinking skills, integrating knowledge across subject disciplines, stretching the imagination and applying these in real-world settings in society and industries.

应用学习项目旨在帮助学生将他们在学术课程中所学习到的内容和价值观与现实世界相结合,并培养更强大的学习动力和目的,以获取知识和技能。应用学习项目的重点是思维技能的应用、整合学科领域的知识,扩展想象力,并将其应用于社会和各行业中。

Pei Chun Public School’s Applied Learning Programme (ALP) is Bilingual Media Studies Programme (BMSP). In line with MOE’s emphasis on a Student-Centric, Values-Driven education, Pei Chun embarked on Bilingual Media Studies Programme to offer our students more opportunities to pursue learning in line with their interests and deepen their 21st century competencies through applied learning experiences. It is our vision to see our students grow up to become confident communicators, self-directed learners, concerned citizens and active contributors to the nation.

培群的应用学习项目是双语传媒课程。为配合教育部以学生为本,价值为导向的教育方针,培群开办了双语传媒课程,通过体验式学习,提供深究和拓展知识的机会,同时提升21世纪技能。这项课程旨在培养学生有自信地以中英双语沟通,自主学习,关怀国家,并积极为国家做出贡献。

Starting from 2015, BMSP is now an integral part of the school-based curriculum, complementing the national curriculum for English and Chinese language. Our Bilingual Media Studies Programme (BMSP) takes the form in these 4 areas:

  1. Skills and knowledge level-based training
  2. Coding Lessons to generate artefacts (outcome of learning)
  3. School Environment – Platforms
  4. Enrichment

自2015年起,双语传媒课程已融入现有的英文和华文的课程内,成为我校的重点校本课程。双语传媒课程包括以下四个项目:

  • 各年级的知识及技能培训
  • 编码课程
  • 学校所提供的语言学习环境
  • 增益课程

Tier 1: Learning Opportunities for all

This year (2018), we have established the level skill-based training towards journalism starting with oratorical training in P2 SEL Speech & Drama during PAL, interview skills in P3, P4 Oratorical Basic Techniques Training and news reporting in P5. In addition, our teachers have come in with coding lessons and provide platforms for students to showcase learnt skills.

第一层级:为全体学生提供学习的机会

2018年,我校为学生提供了以新闻学为导向的培训课,即融入艺体陶冶课程中的二年级口语演艺课(华文),三年级小记者培训课(英文),四年级口语培训课(华文)及五年级小记者培训课(华文)。此外,我校的老师也设计了编码课以及提供平台让学生展示所学习到的技能。

Tier Two: Specialised skill-based training

The objective of having Enrichment programmes is to ensure that our students who are passionate about the languages are supported with platforms to sustain their enthusiasm and discover the joy of learning for both the languages. Platforms and opportunities are provided to this group of students to hone their skills and demonstrate their talents through school’s Bilingual Superstar, FM193.3 and hosting of visiting delegations from China, Taiwan and Hong Kong; and enrichment programmes like theatre and drama, and a learning journey to the Singapore Press Holdings. Moving forward, we are refining the skilled-based training to include oratorical training and translation, with exposure at school level (emcee for school events, BMSP platforms) and national level (National Storytelling, Moo-O) to showcase their learnt skills.

第二层级:专门的技能培训

为了帮助那些对学习两种语文感兴趣的学生维持学习的热忱及发掘学习的乐趣,我校安排了增益课程及应用语文的各种平台。通过双语之星平台、193.3广播台、接待来自中国、台湾及香港的访问团、演艺课程以及到新加坡报业中心的学习之旅,这群学生得以磨练他们的语言技能及展现他们的才华。展望未来,我们将改进目前的技能培训,以加入口语培训课、翻译课,让学生有更多机会在校内(在学校主办的活动上担任司仪、双语传媒课程的平台)及校外(全国讲故事比赛、Moo-O数码故事朗读平台等)学以致用。

Learning for Life Programme (LLP)  – Pei Chun Leaders Programme (PCLP)

Programme Objectives

The Pei Chun Leaders Programme (PCLP) was implemented in 2018 as the Learning for Life Programme to enable our students to acquire and demonstrate important life-skills by focusing on building strong values and social emotional competencies.

Pei Chun Leadership Philosophy

This programme is aligned to the Pei Chun Leadership Philosophy which is strongly influenced by the Confucian classic “Great Learning” – 修身、齐家、治国、平天下 – one must first cultivate one’s own person, then regulate one’s family, then order well one’s state, then only can one make the whole kingdom “天下” – all under heaven – tranquil and happy. The direct relevance from the virtue of the individual, to the family, to the larger society and to universal harmony in the “Great Learning” philosophy encapsulates the growth dimensions of the Pei Chun Leadership Philosophy from self to social and to thought leadership (Figure 1). It firmly believes that leadership begins with self. It is only when one can manage self (Self Leadership) that one can manage relationships effectively, treat/lead others with care and respect (Social Leadership), and influence others and create value through quality insights and innovations (Thought Leadership).

Programme Design

The school leverages the whole school approach in the Pei Chun Leadership Programme to broaden students’ educational experiences in leadership development. It adopts a two-tiered approach:

Tier 1 to equip all students with foundational leadership skills and provide platforms for them to demonstrate their leadership skills; and

Tier 2 to provide structured leadership development programme for selected students to serve the school so as to develop their ability to lead and inspire.

This tiered approach ensures that the needs of the students are met at different levels through core and differentiated programmes.

Tier 1 programmes

Pei Chun Social Skills Package

To equip all students with foundational leadership skills, the school has developed a Pei Chun Social Skills Package that are integrated into the FTGP and CCE MT Curriculum. It provides explicit teaching of social skills in a concrete, step-by-step manner where each skill is unpacked into specific and observable skill step.

ViA Programmes

ViA provides the platform for all Pei Chun students to demonstrate their leadership competencies.

The school has developed a 6-year ViA Curriculum that seeks to develop knowledge, skills and values progressively in each domain from P1 to P6, and at the same time, growing their leadership competencies from self to social and to thought leadership.

P1 I Love My Family Self Leadership
P2 I Love My School
P3 I Love My Environment Social Leadership
P4 I Love My Community
P5 I Love My Nation Thought Leadership
P6 I Love My World

P4 Camp

Every year, the P4 students participate in a residential camp where they get to enjoy the great outdoors. The adventure and team building activities were designed to build self-confidence and self-awareness. Students also learnt to take care of their peers when faced with challenging situations, which is an important element of leadership.

Tier 1-Pei Chun Leadership Series

The objective of the Pei Chun Leadership Series is to provide our student leaders and students with an authentic platform to engage in a dialogue session with inspirational individuals from different fields.

Mr Tan Jun Xiang has shown that there are many pathways to success and children who are facing academic setbacks at this early stage of their lives should not be overly discouraged. Mr Tan’s sharing to our Primary 5 and 6 students was impactful. He urged the students not to give up in the face of adversity and encouraged them to develop their strengths and pursue their passions. Mr Tan Jun Xiang is truly a source of inspiration to many of our Pei Chun students.

Tier 2 programmes

Student Leaders’ Training Programmes – Pei Chun Problem Solvers (PCPS) Programme

Training is provided for our P3 to P6 Prefects to enable them to become confident leaders who can effectively rally others towards a common goal

To develop our Prefects as Proactive & Creative Leaders who understand problems faced by the school or community and work proactively and systematically to solve them, a resource package has been developed to equip Prefects with the 6-step Problem solving method at P4. At P5, the prefects are required to use the method to identify an area of concern in the school, and propose an action plan to solve the problem.

Tier 2 – Pei Chun Leadership Series

Dialogue with Dr Koh Chee Wee (Director, Leadership and Workforce Competencies at Public Service Division, Prime Minister Office) with participants from Pei Chun Public School, Kheng Cheng School and First Toa Payoh Primary School

Through the dialogue with Dr Koh Chee Wee, the students gained insights on ways to strengthen leadership, the different methods of persuasion and its applications, and tips on how to be a better leader in order to serve the school. In addition to the leadership competencies, another takeaway was how to better communicate with one another in order to build and earn trust from others.

“I learnt a lot of new things and I hope I will get another chance to attend this dialogue session again. “

– Yeo Yunying Claris (6/4 Care, 2018)

Student Leadership Camp

The school had its inaugural Student Leadership Camp in 2018. The objective is to provide experiential learning for student leaders to build their leadership competencies in self, social and thought leadership. Another unique feature was the use of a Leadership Profiling tool to help our student leaders be aware of their leadership preference (style).

At the end of the enjoyable 2 Day-1 Night camp, our student leaders learnt and understood the importance of teamwork and more importantly, they were better equipped to manage self and others when faced with challenging situations.
