Nurturing the Thinking F.A.C.E for Tomorrow

(Frontierers who are Adaptive, Communicative and Empowered)

ALP 1

Our LOGO

The evolving silhouettes depict the progression and transformation of Frontierers during a 6 years’ school journey.
Premised on a futuristic view of building Strong Fundamentals for Future Learning, we nurture our pupils to unleash their potential and transcend boundaries, forging breakthroughs as empowered Frontierers in unchartered waters.
The school colours of green and orange are harmoniously blended with other colours to symbolize the growth of Frontierers as holistic trailblazers who embrace the future with confidence and competence, and shining brightly to illuminate self and others.

Our ALP

Frontier’s Approach to Nurturing the Thinking F.A.C.E (Frontierers who are Adaptive, Communicative & Empowered) for Tomorrow is a consolidation of the school’s multi-pronged efforts to infuse thinking as a tool for constructing knowledge and acquisition of the 21CC. Our diverse learning experiences delivered through the ACE (Accelerate, Connect, Extend) Framework drives to support the school’s vision of nurturing “Confident Thinkers. Adaptable Individuals. Passionate Leaders.” Align to the school’s vision, learning in our ALP is designed to equip our pupils with the fundamental skills of communication and thinking to brace them for the 21st century workforce.

Objectives of ALP

  1. To enable all Frontieriers to express ideas and thoughts clearly and effectively.
  2. To cultivate and enhance Frontieriers critical and creative Thinking skills.
  3. To provide opportunity for Frontieriers to build character and relationships by influencing interactions positively.
Singapore is at the crossroads of a restructuring effort to meet the global demands of a knowledge-based economy.  While we focus on nurturing the thinking face for tomorrow so that our pupils can be confident thinkers, adaptable individuals and passionate leaders, we also empower them with the essential skills through Reflective Thinking.

Stay future-ready: Refreshed Curriculum

With changes to SBA, the use of freed-up curriculum time allows our pupils to focus on the  process of learning. The P3-P5 IPW activities are designed to enable pupils to learn deeply and apply their knowledge and skills across various subjects and domains.

Nurturing Frontierers who are Adaptive, Communicative and Empowered for tomorrow through ALP Structure

In Frontier, we help our pupils to acquire Communication and Thinking skills through Experiential Learning via our ALP Lessons that are conducted weekly. After acquiring the thinking and communication skills, our pupils will apply these skills through Project-Based Learning via P3-P5 Interdisciplinary Project Work (IPW). The skill set acquired is also deepned through Maker@Frontier.

Building of Staff Capacity

In Frontier, we believe that our staff is the key drivers of the ALP. To develop a dynamic and inspiring school team, a training road map is mapped out for our staff starting from building capacity of the Core Team, to all staff and individual staff. There are various workshops specially set aside for the facilitation of weekly ALP lessons and IPW lessons.
