© MOE Educational Technology Division (ETD) Baseline ICT StandardsIn St Nicks’, the Cyber Wellness curriculum takes reference from the five themes stipulated by MOE’s Educational Technology Division (ETD). The table below states the range of topics covered from Sec 1 to 4. We have also aligned our curriculum to the ‘Connect’ prong of the Baseline ICT Standards for New Media Literacies. The table below outlines the Learning Outcomes as well as the Skills, Knowledge, Values and Attitude which will be covered in the various aspects of your child’s school experiences- including FTGP, CCE lessons, assembly programmes etc.
We have also included some resources that may be helpful for understanding your child’s involvement in the Digital Space across the topics covered in our curriculum. We understand that to manage our students’ well-being in the Digital Space effectively, parents play an integral role in reinforcing the messages shared in school.

Besides learning about Cyber Wellness through structured CCE lessons at all four levels, positive online behaviour and safe surfing habits are also inculcated through the following:
(1) ICT-enabled lessons of various subjects
(2) Cyber Wellness Carnival
(3) Cyber Wellness Assembly/FTGP
(4) Class Cyber Wellness Ambassadors
(5) Discussion of contemporary issues arising from usage in the Cyber Space
Leadership development is focused on developing a core team of student leaders who are able to lead the student population both at the class and school level to drive the various Cyber Wellness programmes. This is done primarily through the Cyber Wellness Ambassadors.
