Philosophy/Rationale

The curriculum is designed for our students to

  • Develop into an effective communicator
  • Experience the transmission of values and culture, and the development of an aesthetic sensibility
  • Sharpen the tool that language is for personal growth and the development of thinkers, pioneers and leaders, as well as for advocacy

The design of the curriculum is grounded in the view that mastery of the English language enables the individual to make informed judgements about moral, philosophical and social issues, and develops her awareness of the self in relation to the diversity of human experience.

Philosophy/Rationale

The curriculum is designed for our students to

  • Critically examine human experience
  • Experience the power of words and the power of craft, and thus, the importance of using these critically and creatively to serve society

The design of the curriculum is grounded in the view that the study of Literature informs a learner's moral life, by making the learner play both critic and creator.
