E3 (Excite, Engage & Experience) Programme 2015

Taking on a thematic approach, the E3 Programme will lead students to discover concepts which are progressive. Students start off with the concept of the environment, develop good citizenship and move on to explore the world as they explore the theme of globalisation.

In Secondary One, students explore the theme of the environment. Students are challenged to look beyond the natural environment as we know it, and to discover their role in different environments. 

In Secondary Two, students explore the theme of citizenship, developing rootedness as they explore in greater detail, tradition, identity and culture of the people of Singapore. 

In Secondary Three, students explore the theme of globalisation, critically examining Singapore’s place in the world and the need to sustain development. The focus of the Secondary Three Express Curriculum is an integration of English and Social Studies, recognise the impact of internationalisation, especially with regard to tobacco. This is in line with a National Movement: Towards a Tobacco-Free Singapore, in collaboration with the National Cancer Centre and students from the NUS Yong Yoo Lin School of Medicine (YLL-SoM).
