Greendale Secondary embraces Blended Learning to nurture self-directed and independent learners and empower our students to discover their passion and strengths. Blended Learning complements our school programmes and aims to provide students a seamless blend of different modes of learning. One main aspect of Blended Learning is the integration of Home-Based Learning as a regular feature of the school experience.

Blended Learning will be carried out for Secondary One students, with the first Blended Learning Day commencing on 13 July 2021, Tuesday. For the rest of the levels, Blended Learning will be progressively carried out in 2022.

|Student-Initiated Learning (SIL)
Student-initiated learning enables our Greendale students to exercise agency, explore their interests and passions, and learn within and beyond the curriculum.
In Greendale Secondary School, we believe learning should not be confined to the formal curriculum. Through SIL, we aim to enable our students to grow to be lifelong learners, critical thinkers and confident leaders, and to glow in their journey of exploration.
