Our curriculum is structured to engage our students in the various classroom as well as outdoor learning experiences so as to maximize students’ learning. Teaching and learning are designed to realize the vision of Arif Budiman – the learned person who contributes to society. Students learn the Malay Language through a responsive curriculum through the use of Tahap (levels of achievement) at key stages to reflect the differentiated learning outcomes for students of different abilities in each of the language skills. This is aligned with the school’s approach to holistic assessment which takes the form of bite-sized formative assessments such as Show & Tell, presentations, quiz, group work and topic conversation throughout the year.
Our approach to teaching is to develop in our students a passion for the language and enhance their proficiency, especially spoken Malay. We emphasize the Baku pronunciation and correct intonation and thus create opportunities for students to speak eloquently through oral practices, conversations, songs and role-plays.
We organize the following cultural activities for students annually:
- Mother Tongue Language Fortnight
- Hari Raya Celebration
- During MTL Fornight Activities
- During Hari Raya Celebration
- In Classroom Activities
