Computer Applications (CPA)


All students will be exposed to internet technologies and readily available tools through hands-on activities in this skill-based subject. Problem sets that integrate software applications are designed to guide in preparing for real life. 

The Lower Secondary syllabus focuses on equipping students with fundamental ICT skills that support lifelong learning and are useful for their personal life. These skills also form the foundation for the learning of Computer Applications (CPA) at the upper secondary levels.

The Upper Secondary syllabus focuses on higher-order thinking skills. Basic programming concepts and skills will be learnt through animation and game design and applying them to solve problems in everyday context. This helps students for further studies in programming, media-related courses, as well as for the work place and future learning.

Students will also have opportunities to do creative work with animation and game development projects in Secondary 2 and 3 respectively using the Scratch software developed by MIT. In 2016, all Secondary 2 and Secondary 3 students participated in the National Media Computing Competition held by MOE. We are proud to announce that one student clinched a Silver Award!
