World Readiness Programme

Our World Readiness Programme (WRP) is one of our Joint Integrated Programme Flagship Programmes, offered to only IP students. It is co-conceptualised and taught across all 3 JIP secondary schools with extension in Eunoia Junior College.

On top of our Core Academic Programme, the WRP prepares our students for the VUCA (volatile, uncertain, complex, ambiguous) world beyond the classroom, equipping them to understand Singapore’s role in the international arena and exposing them to Eastern and Western perspectives on geopolitical, social, cultural, economic and technological issues and megatrends.

For instance, modules offered under Philosophy – some in Chinese Language – ride on the existing strengths of our school in nurturing bilingual and bicultural students. They also develop our IP students to be well-versed in Eastern and Western perspectives on knowledge, reason and values. At Year 1 to 4, the knowledge that our IP students acquire in WRP will provide them with foundational knowledge and skills that will put them in good stead for specific subjects offered in Eunoia JC. Our OP students will also benefit from the WRP, through the World Readiness Reading Programme.

The following WRP Framework illustrates how our spiral curriculum progresses towards from CHS/CHIJ SNGS/SCGS to EJC:

Our lessons, be it WRP or Core Academic Curriculum, are conducted using varied modes and differentiated instruction to engage our students to think critically through multiple perspectives. These can include joint symposiums with the other JIP schools, seminars with experts such as the Political Chief of the US Embassy (Singapore), learning journeys and even educational gaming.

WRP Core Curriculum

This table illustrates how WRP is taught over four years in CHS as a spiral curriculum that widens our students’ global perspective and sharpens their cultural intelligence.
