Read Well, Write Better (Creative Writing)

​Is your child’s composition score stuck in the 60-70% range? Has he or she been told to adopt different writing approaches by different teachers? Composition writing at primary school shouldn't be as tough as it's made out to be. In this workshop, we teach students practical skills that they can use to immediately improve their ​composition scores. 

​​

While practice is key to improving, the mastery of any language is rooted in reading. Recognising this, the programme also aims to inculcate the love for reading in our young writers through engaging activities based on classic literary texts and a field trip to the library.

Focus areas

  • Theme, Pictures & Story Structure

  • Practical Writing Skills

  • The Joy Of Reading

Go (Weiqi) for Beginners

In 1996​, a computer system (Deep Blue) defeated a reigning human world chess champion (Garry Kasparov) for the first time. It would take another 20 years before programmers came up with an AI computer system (AlphaGo) capable of beating the one of the greatest Go players of all time (Lee Sedol) - a testimony of the complexity of the game.

Invented in China more than 2500 years ago, Go was considered one of the four essential arts in ancient China and is the oldest board game continuously played to the present day. Despite its simple rules, Go is a game that requires enormous brain computing power due to the sheer number of possible moves and board positions.

  • Playing rules and etiquette

  • Basic strategies and tactics

  • Mini tournament​

  • Game analysis
