Critical Thinking™

Critical Thinking is instrumental in ensuring that our youths of today will be able to think through everyday situations with wisdom and make responsible decisions along the way. Critical Thinking is the ability to think clearly and rationally about what to do or what to believe. This programme aims to equip students with the skills and acumen to translate information into valuable knowledge. It is an essential skill needed to survive and thrive in this fast-paced, technology-enhanced society. An influx of information made available through the internet makes it more crucial for youths to discern, process and understand information critically.
