The use of ICT in school aims to nurture a community of learners, who possess the 21st century competencies through effective and responsible use of technology. Students will first learn how to use technology then harness it to empower their own learning. This is achieved through the three programmes spearheaded by the ICT Department.


Digital Literacy Programme
Digital Literacy Programme aims to develop 21st century competencies in pupils, through the learning of Basic ICT skills and online collaborative tools. 

Align to the Digital Literacy Framework (Find, Think, Apply,Create), digital literacy activities have been infused into the school curriculum, project work lessons or through enrichment programmes to develop the media literacy skills of all Zhangderens.



School Coding Programme  

The P1 to P6 coding programme is in line with the school’s Strategic Thrust 1, that is, “nurturing confident and self-directed learners” as well as the Applied Learning Programme, which focuses on ‘Developing Zhangde GIVER3S Values through Environment Education’.

Coding will enable students to develop 21st Century Competencies and skills, putting children in control of the computer and building mastery in sequencing skills, counting, problem solving, logical thinking, creative and critical thinking. Having these skills would help the children in all subjects and build a strong foundation for their future work-life.
