D&T
Design process is the learning platform in D&T. Pupils undertake a series of design and make projects progressively (from Secondary 1 to 4/5) to acquire new knowledge and skills through this learning platform.

NFS
In the NFS unit, the curriculum is split into lower secondary Food & Consumer Education (FCE) and upper secondary Food & Nutrition (F&N).

Through our daily theory and practical lessons, we aim to provide students with the relevant nutritional and consumer knowledge, and basic culinary skills to empower them to make informed food and consumer choices in life.
