Talent Development Programme
Definition and Guiding Principles
School’s mission is to ‘Nurture Talent, Develop Character, Inspire Lives’. The
school’s vision, ‘Learner, Thinker, Leader’ encapsulates the desire of the
school to shape the future-ready Greendale student who would be prepared for
and thrive in the 21st-century with the necessary skills and mindsets.
The Greendale Talent Development Programme (GTDP) is aligned to our mission and vision, in particular our strategic thrust of Excellence in Teaching and Learning (differentiating and customizing our curriculum based on student profile and learning needs).
The guiding principles of the GTDP are as follows:
a) To develop Learners, Thinkers and Leaders.
b) To expose our students to a range of programmes in the intellectual, physical, aesthetic and lifeskills domains and extend their learning in them.
We have adopted the following three strategies in the GTDP:
- Exposure – for students to have an experience in the various
Greendale Signature Programmes such as Design, Technology and Engineering,
Outdoor Adventure Education, and the Greendale Scientist Programme.
- Extension – for students who show deeper
interest and strength in their respective fields, in the form of special
enrichment activities and programmes.
- Excellence – for
outstanding students who desire to excel in their respective fields, through a
targeted approach such as inter-school and national competitions.
