Rationale for Project Work
The world our students live in is a dynamic one in which they must continually keep abreast with changes and new developments. In the 21st century, globalization, changing demographics and technological advancements are some of the key driving forces. Students should be equipped to face these challenges and seize them when these opportunities are presented. An important attribute students must develop is the versatility to transfer ideas from one context to another and make creative connections between them. The continual self-examination of their own performance is also important if they are to attain high standards in their respective fields. Increasingly, students are also expected to collaborate with their peers and communicate their ideas effectively to achieve a common objective.
We want our students to strive for sustained academic excellence through the:
- deepening of our students' understanding, appreciation and love for all subjects,
- acquisition of skills that will prepare our students for the future.
- Collaborate Creative
- Critical Thinking
These two main objectives are based on two key principles of CTSS:
- We value every individual and want to help each individual develop diverse talents.
- We want to provide our students with unique learning experiences that will serve to brand CTSS for the future.
