The Trachtenberg Speed System is a system of mental calculation. An alternative way of learning maths, the system consists of many maths shortcuts and mental math tricks, particularly for multiplication.

Known to be one of the fastest speed math systems, it comprises a number of easily memorised patterns that allow one to perform arithmetic computations without pen and paper. The system primarily focuses on multiplication tricks but with further practice and study, you can learn division, addition, subtraction and square root.

Focus areas

  • Algorithms for multiplication of non-single digit numbers by 4 all the way up to 12

  • Mini speed competition

  • Proficiency test certification

For ages 9-12

In 1996, a computer system defeated a reigning human world chess champion for the first time. It would take another 20 years before programmers came up with an Al computer system capable of beating the one of the greatest Go players of all time – 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.

This workshop is conducted by an experienced instructor who has taught children and adults for many years. He is the champion of the Southeast Asian Weiqi Championship in 2012 and an executive committee member of the Singapore Weiqi Association.

Focus areas

  • Playing rules & etiquette

  • Basic strategies & tactics

  • Game analysis

  • Mini tournament 

This workshop is conducted in Mandarin as the instructor will be telling stories about the origins and cultural significance of the game. The instructor is fluent in English.

In Secondary School, students will be required to use language to express their thoughts and opinions on complex and abstract ideas. To do that, students will need to equip themselves with a new set of specific skills that include summary and expository writing.

There will be class discussions on issues that teenagers care about to supplement the written exercises. This will be a constructive and welcome departure from the intensive writing-based exercises students would have gone through in the pre-PSLE weeks!

Focus areas

  • Visual Text and Open-ended Comprehension

  • Situational Writing

  • Composition

  • Editing

  • Summary Writing

Composition writing at primary school shouldn't be as tough as it's been made out to be. In this workshop, we teach students practical skills they can use to see immediate improvement in their composition scores.

Whilst 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
