The language’s versatility allows exploration in various computer science fields, ensuring students develop future-proof skills relevant to the evolving technological landscape. Beyond its practical benefits, Python provides an enjoyable learning experience, making coding fun and engaging for high school students. Embracing Python is not just about learning a language; it’s an investment in skills that will shape their academic and professional journeys positively.
Also new, starting this January 2024 Permata Bangsa primary school students grades 4 to 6 will be learning the Cambridge Computing course. This will be offered to students in grades 1, 2, and 3 as well as grades 7 to 9 starting in July’s academic year.
This computing curriculum empowers learners to grasp the inner workings of computers. It provides students with the opportunity to delve into the inner workings of a computer, gaining insights into the functions of various components. They will cultivate coding skills using visual programming languages like Scratch, discovering that computers execute actions based on human instructions.
Our Computing curriculum unfolds through five distinctive strands:
Computational Thinking: Empowers learners to devise and articulate problem-solving solutions employing algorithms, logic, and precision.
Programming: Guides learners in comprehending the fundamental constructs of programming languages, fostering an appreciation for the impactful contributions made by Computer Scientists.
Managing Data: Prompts reflection on how computers store and analyze data on an ever-expanding scale.
Networks and Digital Communication: Illustrates the intricate realm of how computers and machines communicate across networks, unveiling the synthesis of hardware and data transmission protocols in network creation.
Computer Systems: Nurtures an understanding that computers meticulously follow sets of instructions to process inputs provided by humans, enabling decision-making and the generation of outputs.
Grade 10 students will continue with internationally recognised the Cambridge Computer Science course.
