Seven Learning Goals of Primary Education

7-goals-learning

Taking into consideration the changes in the society as well as the experience gained in the curriculum reform at the school and KLA levels, the learning goals of primary schools should focus on further promoting the whole-person development of students, which includes enhancing students’ proficiency in English and Chinese (including Putonghua), strengthening their self- directed learning skills, developing their potential, as well as helping them to adopt a healthy lifestyle. The following are the revised learning goals which students are expected to achieve upon completion of primary education:

  1. Know how to distinguish right from wrong, fulfil their duties as members in the family, society and the nation, and show acceptance and tolerance towards pluralistic values;
  2. Understand their national identity and be concerned about society, the nation and the world, and to fulfil their role as a responsible citizen;
  3. Develop an interest in reading extensively and cultivate a habit of reading;
  4. Actively communicate with others in English and Chinese (including Putonghua);
  5. Develop independent learning skills, especially self-management skills and collaboration skills;
  6. Master the basics of the eight Key Learning Areas to prepare for studying in secondary schools; and
  7. Lead a healthy lifestyle and develop an interest in aesthetic and physical activities and an ability to appreciate these activities.
