Design & Technology


To nurture Zhonghuarians to be passionate learners in pursuit of excellence; dynamic and resilient leaders with a passion for innovation; and cultured and caring citizens who place importance in sustaining the environment.


A common syllabus is implemented for all lower secondary D&T students. However, assessment will be differentiated across the streams. There are no theory examinations at the lower secondary levels and all course work components will be computed as part of students’ final grade. Students will get to work with our partner Siloso Beach Resort and experience authentic design opportunities while they learn about sustaining the environment. They will be exposed to the Design Thinking Process. Students will also be working with all three resistant materials – wood, metal and plastic – throughout their D&T experience in lower secondary.

Upper secondary students will experience the Design Thinking Process in detail to solve authentic real life situations. Through these projects, they will get to learn special processes, such as using the lathe machine and milling machine, vacuum forming process and the blow moulding process with the relevant resistant materials in our workshop. They will also develop their creativity through different methods of ideation. On top of that, our upper secondary students will get the opportunity to learn about the CAD program and work with our 3D printers.
