ACJC Attains Top Award
The Ministry of Education instituted the Masterplan of Awards in 1998 in conjunction with the School Excellence Model appraisal system, in order to focus on a holistic approach to school appraisal. The School Excellence Award is the highest award in the Masterplan of Awards, and recognises schools for their achievements in processes as well as outcomes. Anglo-Chinese Junior College is honoured to have been bestowed the School Excellence Award in 2011.
The college’s journey of excellence is based upon a culture of collaboration and innovation fostered by the school leadership. The principle of distributed leadership empowers middle managers and staff to envision an education that caters to 21st century learners and to experiment in designing pedagogies to enhance student engagement and learning.
Instructional ProgrammeThe instructional programme focuses on academic subject content acquisition and application. Within academic content subjects, specific relevant thinking tools are used to develop intellectual depth and higher order thinking. Enrichment programmes are also designed to provide authentic learning opportunities. For example, students are provided with a diversity of specialised local and overseas opportunities to finesse higher order thinking skills and to gain adeptness in problem solving in authentic learning situations. The Humanities research symposia allow for self-selected and delineated areas of research and investigations in the Arts, Social Sciences and Aesthetics. International Science partnerships with overseas universities offer the opportunity to test scientific inquiry and curiosity in non-traditional and international situations. The English Language Elective Programme, Drama Elective Programme, Music Elective Programme and programmes hosted by the ACJC West Zone Centre of Excellence for Language Arts hone academic appetites for problem solving in diverse creative situations. The college’s I–Learn Independent learning programme refines metacogitive recognition of independent learning strategies and empowers learners to take control of their own intellectual growth and outcome.
