Online learning during lesson suspension

Dear Students,
As lessons have been suspended over these past few days, we hope that you would take this opportunity to do some self-revision.   We hope to minimise the loss of learning hours in school; hence, your teachers would be sending you some work through eClass or Google Classroom. Please check these platforms regularly over the next few days and complete the work assigned.  Do keep yourself safe and away from any areas where your safety may be undermined.

Mission

The Economics Department seeks to nurture independent thinkers who are able to analyse real-world issues and government policies with fundamental economic theories, and evaluate with international perspectives and respect for different cultures and values.

 

Curriculum Goals
  • To develop students’ interest in exploring human behaviour and social issues, becoming lifelong learners who will continue to discover the world through an economic perspective.
  • To help students master basic economic principles and terminology so that they can comprehend the relationship between economic events and outcomes.
  • To help students better understand local, regional and global economic and social issues and their possible consequences and implications. 
  • To develop students’ awareness of the economic, political, social and environmental forces underlying the process of economic decision-making.
  • To train students to be critical and informed individuals in the discussion of local, regional and global economic and social issues.
  • To encourage students to become committed and responsible citizens, contributing to the well-being of the local community, the nation and the world.
