Key Programmes

1. BGPS ICT Curriculum

The BGPS ICT Curriculum aims to equip students with a set of ICT skill competencies via four progressive Key Stages. These are essential knowledge, skills and values which students would need in order to thrive in a technology-driven society. The ICT Curriculum inculcates MOE Baseline ICT Standards which have been benchmarked against overseas ICT standards as well as curriculum and existing practices in our schools.


Key Stages

The attainment of the ICT skills is spiral and structured into 2 progressive stages. The skills in the first Key Stage will be acquired from Primary 1 to 3 and the skills in the second Key Stage will be acquired from Primary 4 to 6. The learning outcomes described for each Key Stage indicate the pedagogical purpose of ICT use in curriculum. The focus is on thinking and process skills that are common and necessary across all core subjects, such as gathering and organising information, presenting information of ideas. The ICT skills imparted range from basic operations (e.g. opening, saving and retrieving a file) to ICT process skills (e.g. using a spreadsheet to process data for analysis and search engines to retrieve current information).


2. Cyberwellness Programmes

At the end of the Primary education, students will have acquired skills related to ethical and legal as well as safe and responsible use of ICT, which is aligned to the Cyberwellness Framework.

Objective(s): Cyberwellness is a very important directive within the ICT strategy of the school. Since the cyberworld is as ubiquitous as the more standard conventions, the wellness of students is underlined when inculcating students with ICT skills.
