The GOS curriculum seeks to equip students to be ready for work and prepared for life through the holistic development of each student. The school takes care to tailor the curriculum to the individual student’s need in order to maximize his or her potential.
The design of the curriculum (for both MID and ASD Programmes) is guided by sound practices. The content, pedagogy and assessment of the curriculum are treated as an integrated whole during the planning and implementation stages. The school strives to offer a functional, developmentally appropriate and coherent educational programme. To ensure a rich and balanced learning experience for the students, the educational programme offers core learning domains including Academic, Social-Emotional, Daily Living, Physical Education, Arts and Vocational Education, which are enabled by Information Communication Technology with a strong emphasis on character development.
In order to help students in the ASD Programme to better access the curriculum, they are trained to deal with transitions within their learning environment using teaching tools such as schedules, work system and visual supports. In addition, classrooms are specially set up to accommodate the needs of students with autism with clearly demarcated boundaries for specific activities.
