Liberal Studies is one of the four core subjects in the three-year senior secondary curriculum.

The subject aims to broaden students’ horizon and enhance their social awareness through the

study of a wide range of local and global issues. It is hoped that at the end of the course, students can face challenges in the future with confidence. 

The aims of Liberal Studies are: 

- to enhance students’ understanding about themselves, their society, their nation, the human

world, and the physical environment;

- to enable students to develop multiple perspectives on perennial and contemporary issues in different contexts (e.g. cultural, social, economic, political and technological contexts);

- to assist students to become independent thinkers so that they can construct knowledge appropriately for adaptation to their personal and social circumstances;

- to train students to acquire extensive skills for life-long learning which include critical thinking, creativity, problem-solving, communication and information technology;

- to help students appreciate and respect diversity in cultures and views in a pluralistic society and handle conflicting values; and

- to aid students to establish positive values and attitudes towards life with a view to help them become informed and responsible citizens of the society, the country and the world.

   The various in-class activities help students to be inquisitive learners and problem solvers.
