Effective MTL communicators and appreciators of their respective cultures and values.
In BHPS, students’ MT language abilities and competencies in reading, writing, listening, speaking and thinking skills are developed via opportunities and encouragement to speak, write and make presentations in standard MTL (i.e. grammatical, fluent and appropriate to purpose, audience, context and culture).
Common MTL Programmes
ICT Programmes: 10' CMT (Primary 1 - 2)
The 10’CMT programme is introduced to the lower primary students as part of our efforts to improve the learning of the Mother Tongue languages. The programme aims to enthuse the students to be immersed in the values and culture related to the Mother Tongue. The programme which is learner centered and facilitated by the teachers also promotes collaborative and self-directed learning among the students.
