The Humanities Department seeks to prepare students to be citizens of tomorrow by helping them to better understand the interconnectedness of Singapore and the world they live in, and appreciate the complexities of the human experience. Through inquiry and authentic learning experiences, it is envisioned that learners will come to possess the dispositions that will enable them to show concern for their society and the world they live in, and demonstrate empathy in their relationships with others.

Key Programmes:

  • Student sharing on contemporary issues during Morning Assembly
  • Interdisciplinary Learning Journeys to Gardens by the Bay, Bedok Reservoir Park and URA Gallery
  • Singapore Hong Kong Cultural Immersion Programme
  • Learning Journey to the National Museum of Singapore
  • Humanities competitions and conferences (NUS Geography Challenge, MOE Historical Challenge, Raffles Model United Nations, VJC Model Cabinet)

The Humanities department also offers a rigorous Talent Development Programme for students who demonstrate a passion for the Humanities. These students are mentored by teachers who guide them in researching on various Humanities topics and train them for competitions. The close teacher-student mentorship has enabled our students to win accolades at the following competitions:

  • Singapore Model United Nations 2017: Best Journalistic Article and Best Position Paper
  • NUS Geography Challenge 2017: Most Creative Infographic (Top 2)
