Home-Based Learning


The ICT skills acquired in these programmes have equipped our pupils with the skills to engage in independent learning. Every year, the school will conduct three sessions of Home Based Learning to promote independent learning through ICT integration. Pupils will learn from home and complete assignments on-line. Teachers will plan the home activities and monitor pupils’ learning through their submissions of assignments. Teachers will also provide pupils with the reports on their performances and support them in reinforcing the content back in school.

The objectives of HBL Exercises are:

  • To simulate school closure during an emergency period
  • To ensure continuity of learning in the event of school closure
  • To engage pupils in ICT-enriched learning experiences

Mobile Carts: Transition from Desktops to Notebooks

With the availability and use of digital resources and the widening coverage of wireless access in PVPS, our pupils are able to learn at anytime and from anywhere. To further support such learning environment, the school has replaced all its desktops with notebooks which allow for better mobility and provide better power resiliency to enhance teaching and learning beyond the classroom.

Cyber Wellness

Cyber Wellness @ PVPS


What is Cyber Wellness?

Cyber Wellness refers to the positive well-being of Internet users. It involves an understanding of the risks of harmful online behaviours, an awareness of how to protect oneself and other Internet users from such behaviours.

cyberwellnessChart.jpg

PVPS adapts MOE’s Sense-Think-Act framework to develop pupils’ instinct to protect and empower them to take responsibility for their well-being in cyberspace. The two principles, ‘Respect for Self and Others’ and ‘Safe and Responsible Use’ when adhered to will anchor pupils’ well-being in cyberspace as they will then be able to make careful and well-considered decisions.

  • Sense: Pupils should be able to identify the possible risks.

  • Think: Pupils should be able to analyse, evaluate and reflect on the online situation they are facing based on the two principles.

  • Act: Pupils should be able to translate his/her understanding into actions that will keep him/her safe while online.

The Cyber Wellness Curriculum focusses on the development of 21st century and social-emotional competencies in the use of ICT. The main platform for the delivery of the lessons is via Form Teacher Guidance Periods (in Primary schools).

PVPS also collaborates with FamilyMatters@School to engage TOUCH Cyber Wellness to train and empower our Service Learning Council (SLC) Cyber Wellness Ambassadors to have greater sense of responsibility, perseverance, optimism, better self-esteem and confidence. The Ambassadors will also able to identify potential hazards in the cyberspace faced by their peers and provide solution to address these concerns. Assembly talks are conducted by our SLC Cyber Wellness Ambassadors to promote good cyber wellness practices.
