Vision: Students to be eloquent and effective communicators in a media-rich environment.
 
Mission: To cultivate a vibrant and enriched language arts curriculum to immerse all students in all areas of language arts (i.e., reading, writing, listening, speaking, viewing, representing) and genres (i.e., narrative, poetry, journal), across the curriculum through a variety of interactive language experiences (e.g. MLEA, trails, drama, literature).


The following diagram presents the key features of the EL Syllabus 2020 undergirded by the principles of EL teaching and learning (CLLIPS) and EL teaching processes (ACoLADE). Drawing on the model of effective teaching in the Singapore Teaching Practice, a pedagogical emphasis on Multiliteracies, Metacognition, and Inquiry through Dialogue in the EL classroom ensures effective and affective language use for all EL learners. The approach to language teaching and learning ensures a firm and rich foundation for all.

Our Approach

Here @Oasis, when planning EL lessons, teachers will employ ACoLADE during the delivery of the pre, main and post phases of their EL lessons.   

We also aim to expose students to a wide range of fiction and non-fiction texts from print, non-print and electronic sources.

We believe in giving students opportunities to speak, write and make presentations in internationally-acceptable English that is grammatical, fluent and appropriate for purpose, audience, context and culture.
