Academic & Talent Programme (G6,7,8)


The Academic & Talent Programme for Grade 6, 7 & 8 is our latest scholarship programme that was first introduced in the 2018-19 school year. This programme is established to provide opportunity to young learners to get familiarised and adapt well with the international curriculum through extra academic lessons in Maths and English. The programme also aims to serve those who are passionate about developing one of the talent tracks in Sports, Art and Music as a life-long talent, by nurturing and empowering the student’s talent through financial support and programme’s commitments.
